It is a common misconception that in order to repair a dent in your car the entire panel must be replaced and
repainted in order to achieve optimal, like-new results. Many auto body shops make a huge profit by making
unnecessary repairs on cars that have minor damage. Many times, especially with newer cars, your dent can be
fixed without having to subject your car to costly and invasive collision repair.
Here at Westport Body Shop, we offer paintless dent removal in order to save you time and money when you
bring your vehicle in for collision repair. This innovative technique allows our auto body technicians to massage
away dents of many sizes without disturbing your original paint or having to replace panels on your car. Our
paintless dent removal works best on:
Cars made within the last 20 years. Newer cars are made with strong materials and better quality paints,
allowing us to provide you with affordable collision repair without having to replace parts or repaint your car.

you do require a minor paint job, we offer innovative color match technology and trusted DuPont automotive
Dents that are not near the edge of a panel, and dents on panels that have no previous collision repair work.
