Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to have dents removed?
This depends on factors like the number of dents, where they are and how deep they are. A small single dent obviously doesn’t cost as much to repair as a vehicle battered by a mega hailstorm. Ask for a quote before you approve the repairs.
What type of dents can be repaired?
A highly experienced technical expert can fix most types of dents. This includes round dents, sharp dents, crease dents and extreme dents.
How long do repairs take?
The time it takes to repair dents depends on factors like the extent of the damage. If your car has been severely damaged by hail, for example, it will likely to take longer to fix.
What is paintless dent removal?
Paintless dent repair is when dents are removed without the need for filler, sanding and painting. Specialised tools and techniques are used to push the metal back into its original shape. This is an environmentally friendly approach that can be cost-effective and time efficient.
Do all dent repair workshops guarantee their work?
Most do but it’s best to check online to read about guarantees, or call and ask about them.

Not really an answer, but a very related question; who would you guys recommend for (deep) stone chip repairs? Have a couple of little ones that have started to rust. Need to get them sorted out ASAP.

I used Cartisan at Belconnen a few months ago and was very very impressed with the result. Fixed a pretty hefty scuff mark on the rear bumper for about $250. The colour was matched perfectly so it is completely invisible no matter how hard I look.

Dent Solutions in Fyshwick. If their work repairing hail damage is anything to go by then they should be able to sort out any other minor dings.
