Does re-painting my car really affect its value ?
Did you know that all of the your vehicles exterior parts have matching VIN numbers? When you choose PDR you are choosing to maintain the original parts and paint on your vehicle. You only have one factory finish and it’s extremely hard to match the color and texture of your primary paint. Factory paint is usually applied and baked at high temperatures before any rubber, plastic, or cloth parts are installed. Once these parts are installed a repainted vehicle will never be able to be cured the same way a factory finish is resulting in an inferior finish. Even with the best body shops in the world, paintless dent removal remains undisputed. With PDR, your factory or custom finish stays original without jeopardizing mis match color, over spray or uneven texture. This can be a dead give away when you want to resale your vehicle.
What is CarFax?
Once your vehicle goes through the claim process and is repaired at a body shop, your vehicle is reported to CarFax. It’s a detailed history report about your vehicle. A smart buyer who looks at your vehicle history report may suspect your vehicle has been in an accident. This can jeopardize the sale of your vehicle and reduce the resale value significantly. With paintless dent removal, your vehicle maintains it’s factory finish without the cause n effect history report. In other words, no evidence is shown on either paper work or your vehicle’s finish.
Why not just make a claim and send it to the body shop ?
For what it’s worth you might consider making a claim. Sometimes it can be covered under your comprehensive policy. You’ll then be able to compare the value of PDR to the value of a conventional repair. For the most part, it’s not worth making a claim for a dent that can be handled by a qualified PDR technician. So why risk the hassle of paper work, a loss of time without your vehicle and the risk of your insurance rates going up? In the long run, you save time & money without the long process of a hassled claim and being without your vehicle for 3-5 days or more on minor repairs.
