A dent, a bang, a ding, a collision; all part of the inevitable when you’re driving in Kuwait. Whether you’re driving, stationary at the lights, or your car is parked, it can happen at any time and when it does, that little dent can cause a major headache.
Dent Xpress offer a service known as paintless dent removal. This is a collection of techniques, originally developed to repair hail damage that can leave a car looking like a golf ball, for removing dents and dings, and can be seen as more of an art form than a skillset.
There are no machines or equipment involved in the process. Instead, a highly skilled individual working with a specific set of tools will work hands on with the damaged area to bring it as close back to the original look as possible. The skills required to perform paintless dent removal can take many years to perfect. So it’s reassuring to know that Dent Xpress has been offering this service since 2005, when they were the first to provide paintless dent removal in Kuwait and the Middle East.
For the uninformed (like me), the alternative to this is a less delicate process done at a body shop that ends up being painted over. This can pose a few problems; a painted car decreases in value, so if you plan on selling it this will severely affect your asking price. Paint also adds weigh to a car that can affect performance and is more than undesirable. Paintless dent removal is also a considerably faster option than alternative options, so car owners favor it. If it is a small job it can be carried out in between five minutes and one-and-a-half hours. Body shop and paint jobs can take upwards of three days.
If you have a ding in your car you can drop by Dent Xpress in Shuwaikh, they’ll take a look at it and let you know, first if they can actually repair it (some dents can be too far gone for PDR), then they will let you know to what degree they can repair it. Their expertise is so high and their service so sought after, they even have people driving in from Saudi Arabia to have their cars repaired!
All you have to do is take a look at the before and after photos on their website to see the quality of the craftsmanship on offer at Dent Xpress. So if you really care about your car, and want an efficient, speedy, hands-on service, Dent Xpress will treat your car as if it was their own. When you get the car back, nobody will be able to tell there was a dent there in the first place.
