Consequently, insurance companies globally recognize Paintless Dent Repair as more than just a “Viable Alternative” to traditional auto body repair; it’s now the “Preferred Method.” Hail Repair Training at our new Colorado Hail Repair School focuses on this alternative approach to traditional auto body repair.
