Paintless dent repair

Anybody had this done? Happy with the results? Approximate cost? Got a dent on the back of the cab on my truck. Its black and know it will drive me crazy if I don't get it fixed.

I got a pretty good sized door ding in my 3 day old Tahoe one time and used a paintless repair guy. He came out to my office and popped it out in about 10 minutes, maybe less. He did have to drill a hole in the rear edge of my door (near the latch mechanism), but he covered it with a plastic plug; and, if you did not compare that door to the door on the other side, then you would never have known that it was not a factory plug. I think he charged me $75, to meet me at my site. If I had shown up on one of the days he was at my dealer, I think it would have been $50 or something like that.

It was a cheap price to pay for my sanity. I was spinning in circles about having a door ding after 3 days of ownership of that Tahoe.

I've had this done, they do a great job. Usually the first dent is at full price and rest are at half price.

They always find more.

I had two vehicles with hail damage pdr'd was very happy with the end result. Insurance estimated damage at over 11K for the two vehicles. PDR'd and detailed for 7K. No repainting, no aftermarket crap in place of factory panels.

I dropped a 12 foot 2x4 on my brother's brand new SUV. Put an 8 inch dent in the front fender. The paintless dent guy got it out for $125. Neither my brother nor I could find where the dent was after it was fixed. Cash well spent.
