Dents and dings can occur on any car, even on electric vehicles (EV) like a Tesla Model S or an EV Ford Mustang. Your car is most susceptible to dents and damage when you’re out and about trying to run your errands. Sometimes, your car doesn’t even have to be moving to be damaged; one of your kids can randomly dent it by riding their bike into it.
Due to occurrences like these, you need to ensure that you have an auto-shop you can go to fix your EV. Electric vehicles generally come with many sensors that reduce the chance of dents, but they’re still machines. One of the best ways to fix small dents on an electric vehicle is paintless dent repair.
What Is Paintless Dent Repair?
Paintless Dent Repair is a non-invasive way that IMI accredited technicians will fix your dents so that you can maintain your car’s aesthetic. Paintless dent repair doesn’t involve any extra material, which is why it’s cheaper and takes less time. You’ve likely spent a lot of money on your electric vehicle already, so using PDR is less of an expense than you’re used to.
How Does it Work?
The process of PDR in an electric vehicle is similar to that in a normal vehicle. The technician will assess the damage to see if the dent is eligible for PDR. Once that’s confirmed, they will ask for your permission. The technician will then use their tools and technique to fix your dent. The one thing you should be careful about is your technician’s knowledge. Make sure you ask them to show their certification and ensure that the auto shop has worked on electric vehicles before.
Benefits of PDR
- It is more cost-efficient.
- It is less time-consuming
- It doesn’t use any extra material
- It helps in retaining the value of your vehicle
- It is good for the environment
5 Reasons You Should Take Your Electric Vehicle to an IMI-Accredited Technician
1. They know what they’re doing
IMI accredited technicians will know how to maintain the electrical systems in your vehicle and how to remove and are fully trained to power down the vehicle to make it completely safe to work on.
2. They have years of experience.
This experience means they know what tool to use to ensure that they service the cars properly.
3. They’re unlikely to cause damage to the vehicle.
They’re IMI accredited, so they know how to conduct hazard management not just for the car but for their entire auto-shop, and so your car will not be in danger.
4. They’re unlikely to cause damage to themselves.
The biggest difference between normal cars and electric vehicles is that they have many more electric systems that can harm the technicians working on them if they’re not careful. IMI technicians know their way around these systems.
5. They ensure legal compliance.
These technicians will not fit your car with a part that may be potentially harmful to you or anyone else as they’re sworn not to.
