The most common practical use for Paintless Dent Repair is the repair of hail damage, door dings, minor body creases, and minor bumper indentations. The techniques can also be applied to help prepare the damaged panel for paint. Such applications are referred to as "push to paint", or "push for paint". Limiting factors for a successful repair using Paintless Dent Repair include the flexibility of the paint, and the amount the metal has been stretched by the damage incurred. Hence, often extremely sharp dents and creases may not be repairable - at least not without painting afterwards. Insurance companies have come to embrace the financial savings associated with the Paintless Dent Repair alternative to Auto Paint and Body Repair. For instance, in the case of Hail Damage, Paintless Dent Repair provides substantial savings on paint, materials and rental cars. In addition, minor door dings and shopping cart dents cost less to remove than your insurance deductible.
