    Default Recommend a PDR shop

    Searched and I donít think there are any recent threads, hoping for a PDR shop recommendation.

    Hit and run in a parking lot (no cameras facing where my car was). Luckily only paint transfer from the offending car onto mine and very small dent on a front fender (good access) so I think PDR should be able to fix it back to 90%.

    Any shops you guys recommend?

    Thanks @03ozwhip appreciate the props. Taking my humble pie, quietly bowed out from servicing Beyond walk-in's (i.e. think of it as a proper mechanic, bodyman who isn't doing "work on the side" anymore, back to working fully for big corporate shops, professional clients/special vip guests only)... Kept the user name, imo no point in changing it, writing personality would be a giveaway plus new name could be attached with a FKA anyways. Did removed the whole "sponsor" title as well.

    Getting old, prioritizing my professional time. But more on a personal bases, things change. Trying to focus on one career change/investigating that's on my must do bucket list, fingers crossed hopefully I'd be able to gain some traction and maybe someday write a story about it.

    Back to OP's topic. Professionally, won't comment since it'll just be bias he said/she said tit-for-tat, being in this industry toooooo long; there's always negatives with everyone's service (myself included; especially myself lol). Personally commenting as a member though, imo, I never really enjoy the word "recommend" in the context of getting skilled trades or trades with creativity (be it plumbing, automotive: detailing/dents/tinting, house painting, welder, home staging, realtors). Each tasks/jobs, and consumer experiences are too opinionated, public customers don't know the in's and out's and flaws of any given industry.

    Since it sounds like you know your hit and run damage is PDR... I'd SUGGEST you visit the many many popped up dent shops around town these few years, and hopefully get the actual technician (hopefully not a pump and dump shop where a PDR service advisor promises you one thing, but completely different what the craftsman produce; we're still lucky enough to be a small niche usually estimator/craftsman/cashier is still the same person; for now) get them to give a look over, collectively get a few professional opinions from them, see which business gives a good vibe that fits YOU and your repair needs.

    Thanks for the suggestions and thanks @TomcoPDR for your feedback.

    Was going to take it somewhere today but going to wait until it gets nicer, had just washed it before it got hit.

    We had quite severe hail damage on two vehicles repaired using the PDR services of Dent Squad east of Chinook Centre and we couldn't see any indication of hail damage after their work. It was truly amazing.

    Iím afraid so young grasshopper @hurrdurr . My usefulness in the community has downgraded to just food reviews. And the odd spotting of car license plates while I shake my fist at their weaving across bike lanes.
