The Case for Dealer In-house PDR Programs

PDR Training: Brian demonstrating for students on 66′ Chevelle Convertible

At SAI we have been helping dealers for over 2 decades with recon cost slashing and adding new revenue streams.  It’s and easy program to implement, minimal risk and cost outlay, and simply makes sense.

Here is a recent email sent to us from a service manager at a luxury store in Chicago stating his goals and just why this makes sense for any dealer doing minimal volume seeking  to cut costs & ramp up revenues:

“Brian:  I am still interested in getting going this year, I have been doing some calculating and for 2017 we paid out just under $59K in PDR invoices for Inventory recon and Customer sold jobs in the service drive. My goal is to find a way to turn that into labor revenue for the store and grow that business to doing over 100K annually.

Thus me reaching out about training and a plan to bring that in house.

I will be available in the morning on Thursday between 8am and 11:30am CST, if you would have time to give me a call and we can discuss further on the phone.”

 

This is the right direction every franchise store should be heading in- cutting costs and adding revenue. And the crazy thing is this money doesn’t require additional marketing monies or efforts- it can be captured quickly and simply with a few simple tweaks.

Motorcycle PDR- A Hidden Gem | SAI PDR Training

Motorcycles- ton’s on the road, and man oh man do they cost a pretty penny.

Have you looked at the average price of a Harley Davidson in 2018? How about a Ducati? Even Honda’s and Kawasaki’s are big money now.  And that means value- value for the owner, and the desire to maintain that value.

We at Superior Auto Institute include 5 Motorcycle PDR tools in our student sets. Why? Because motorcycle PDR is simply money, and there is very little competition.

An average Paint job on a motorcycle tank is $500+ and with a $125-200 PDR as an alternative, it’s a no brainer.

Most motorcycle PDR’s are done through the gas door filler area, but sometimes we glue pull or go thru the petcock. We will go over this at the request of the student during their training.

SAI’s New Secret Big Dent Weapon Tool: The Dent Smasher | SAI PDR Training

At SAI PDR Training, we do things a little Differently.

 

1) We get bored with little baby dents.

2) We like challenges.

3) We like to see people get BLOWN away.  There’s nothing better than witnessing the sheer amazement when people assume their vehicle is doomed for the paint shop and we yank them back to earth and save their car from certain devaluation doom (not to mention often saving them $1000’s).

The SAI Dent Smasher. A literal Game Changer.

We knew years ago that pushing large dents with a small tip was a recipe for time wasting and massive texturing in most repairs.  Dent Repairs do NOT need to be textured/prickly IF proper steps are put into play.

The Idea: Use Battery or Air power with a large head/tip to move alot of metal with less physical effort to 1) Minimize pin pricks normally made with PDR rods, and 2) Move more metal quickly to drastically reduce time necessary to sculpt out big dents.

Net result: Big money dents finished in a fraction of the time normally required for traditional PDR rod pushing, AND with much improved quality.

DentSmasher Video

REQUIREMENTS FOR DENT SMASHER USE

  1. Large access. Fenders, quarter panels and other open panel areas.
  2. Heat. Large amounts of heat (preferably from inside and out but not required) help the metal move better and release memory.
  3. Remove crowns. Removing crowns before or during repair helps release tension and memory and speeds removal.
  4. Deep crease can be removed using smasher tool- but a smaller tip is recommended (Several tips are included)

The Peculiar Rise of PDR In the Collision Industry | SAI PDR Training

The Peculiar Rise of PDR In the Collision Industry

Brian Jump

If you are within 7 degrees of the auto collision industry, you know who runs the show: Big Insurance.

Yes there is still money to be made as a autobody collision repair provider, but insurance has carved out a nice piece of the pie with parts, and other very clever methods to extract dollars wherever possible.

Enter PDR. Paintless Dent Repair was originally shunned by auto collision experts. With “persuasion” from insurance, body shop owners agreed to accept PDR as a viable method for hail repair. With billions of dollars at stake each year worldwide, this acceptance was originally a bitter pill to swallow. This put millions..probably billions back in favor once again with insurance over the years with hail repair, since PDR is more cost effective than conventional repair.

Now big insurance has taken notice of PDR 2.0 :

A technique called gluepulling has opened new doors for accomplished PDR technicians, and for those with extensive experience, we are now seeing repairs where panels were deemed not only PDR unfriendly, but also replacement candidates for bodyshops; PDR techs are saving them. That’s not all folks. Corrosion is a big issue in the insurance business too- welding inner structures is a sure fire way to provoke rust issues in years to come. PDR reduces and often eliminates rust events. Once again, win win for PDR businesses and insurance. Bodyshops not so much. So now, insurance companies such as Allstate and others are beginning to nudge collision shops to start moving in the direction of PDR where possible. But that often means reduced revenue (read: bodyshops are pushing back).

If you like to wager, bet on Big Insurance. They will win. The trick here is, these repairs are not easily quantifiable and adjusters need to be trained to know where PDR may apply.

PDR techs are already killing it with hail repair, and aide bodyshops with blend panel dents, replacement part dents, upsells and giveaways to garner the customer from competing shops, but conventional repair applications are tricky: What dents are repairable via the PDR method and what are best for conventional? Sometimes only a skilled PDR tech will know what is possible, and even then sometimes it might be a borderline repair where PDR may be viable.

So where do we go from here? Better training and coordinating between insurance and PDR companies is a good first step. Working with the shops and communicating is a good second step, and hopefully the auto collision industry can utilize PDR in combination with conventional to derive profits while doing what is most important: giving the client the best repair method available.
