Potential PDR Customers
PDR customers’ Paintless Dent Removal pricing varies not only by competition, but also whether you’re going to be working in the wholesale or retail markets. Pricing today usually ranges anywhere from $50 to $100 per dent. Sometimes pricing can be less, but that would be quoted by you for a larger number of cars you’d work on at one time, generally for a used car dealer with lots of cars. It’s important to remember that most cars have more than one ding, so offer your customers a package price and a small discount so you can build your average repair invoice even higher by repairing more damage for each of your PDR customers.
