Recommendations for dent removal in Vancouver?

Hey guys, so my shop has an account with Dent King over on Marine. I actually took my bugeye WRX there and had like 20 dents removed from the car (the car was in really rough shape when I bought it) and it turned out great a few years back. However, I've been trying to book a time for them to do my bosses car as well as my 370z for literally the past 2 weeks and they kept flaking. I made about 3 or 4 appointments, all of which they backed out from last minute without a single call (I had to call them to ask where they were, and then they would just reschedule and repeat). I'm getting really fed up, we only have 3 dents to remove per car so it's not a huge deal, but I don't want to deal with a shop that is so ridiculously unorganized where they can't even keep a simple appointment. I had confirmed all the appointments twice, just to have them say "Oh sorry I'm stuck at ______ working on another car" or "The boss took your call and didn't schedule it in" even though I had been talking to both the boss and technician.


Anyways, that last conversation with Dent King just happened a few minutes ago. I'm looking for another dent removal place to take my business to, looking for a place that will not scratch up the car to remove dents. I've seen Paintless Dent Removal on Victoria Drive as well as a few other places, but would like to take our cars to a place where people have had good experiences with. All suggestions welcome! TIA

I used Dent king a few times, each time was meh.
Try Dent Vision and ask for Tan. He has a long wait list but does excellent work.

Gave them a call, wait is about 2 weeks which is not too bad considering Dent King made me wait 2 weeks and I still haven't gotten a confirmed time from them yet lmao. Sent Dent Vision pictures for a quote, hopefully they'll get back to me soon. Never realized how annoying it is to get dents removed these days.. Thanks for the recommendation!

Josef @ Dentcraft is who I have used for a few years now. I've always been happy with his work. I also like his no BS approach. If he cant fix it, he will let you know.

What does dent removal go for, roughly? My DD Acura has a few dents that have been pissing me off and I've been contemplating getting repaired.

I've used Precision Dent Repair (guy called Chris) a couple of times now and have recommended it to two others who have been happy with their service! Had this golf ball sized dent that I thought there would be no way that it could be removed and he was able to get it out.

every place is different. typically it can be $80-100+ for one dent, and that depends on how bad it is. if you have multiple dents, it becomes a flat rate per panel on top of the initial cost of the first dent, again, depending on how bad the dent is.

yes my dad had it done... or i should say i did it and he didn't care but it was giving me OCD. some silicone on a black home depot screw head cap on the underhood rib of his hood to take a dent out...

i also suggest that you contact your preferred auto dealer, whether it be for sales or service, and ask who they use or recommend. they use dent companies to refurbish their used vehicle inventory or offer it on the side to customers who come in for maintenance. the dent in my dad's hood was repaired as a jobber on his invoice when it was in for service at vancouver subaru (ie. docksteader at the time). he just asked if they could fix it while it was there and they brought in a mobile company to do it on the lot.

you go out of your way to find the perfect parking space so no one dents you and the shopping carts are not pleased



(actually this car was illegally parked and the store employees took action )

Bumping this thread.

I just had Chad from Dent Craft Canada come today to fix several dents for our cars. The dents were on the doors and the quarter panels. His work was great, he took his time taking them out. He did not have to drill any holes to remove any of the dents(that was my biggest concern).

All the dents just magically disappeared. Save myself from getting the vehicle fixed at the body shop and kept the original paint from factory.

A big plus to Chad and Dent Craft. I would definitely recommend them.

I went to dents unlimited a few years back in port moody. The dings on the door and quarterpanel were gone, I was happy with their work.

So after I asked Dent Vision and sent them pictures, they took a day to reply to me asking about a time. I replied a day after that as I didn't check my messages and the guy said because I didn't reply his message on the spot I now have to wait for a month and a half lol. Ended up going to Dent King since the guy finally got back to me.

My bosses GTR had to get a hole drilled to remove a dent in the rear quarter panel and it got capped, not too bad actually. Something happened to the paint of my car while it was at Dent King... currently in the process of trying to figure this out with them so I'm going to refrain from posting anymore details publicly until we get this sorted out. Definitely NOT impressed with what I have to go through with Dent King though. Details later on

my mom's car got dented the other week. i tried calling the usual places i posted above but they were all booked. so i gave precision a call and they said if i could come to the automall they would fit me in, and they fixed it within 10 minutes right in the parking lot outside their office storefront (they share a service bay with the unit next door but are mostly mobile). they also went over the entire car to make sure i didn't have any more because it's cheaper to do multiple dents together. they also gave me a discount from the original quote because it wasn't as bad as everyone thought it would be which was much appreciated.

Got my first door ding over the weekend and went to precision dent repair. Got my car fixed right there at a good fair price. In and out less than 10 minutes. Highly recommend!! He does a lot of the work for the Richmond Automall as well!
