How old is Paintless Dent Repair?

Tools of the Trade

That’s a complicated answer. It seems that few agree on the exact origin. Here are the two most popular legends...

1. Argentina Origination: one of the most widely recognized names in Paintless Dent Repair is Dent Wizard. As the story goes, the man who started the company learned it in his home country of Argentina. Capitalizing on this unique and difficult to master skill, moved to the United States in the very early 1980’s. He trained many men and quickly franchised the name and business across the country. 2. Germany Origination: this legend has it that the skill was developed by Mercedes Benz in the 1960’s. In the factories, small dents or dings were appearing on body panels through the manufacturing process. Seeing that this was unacceptable for the company, they developed the art of Paintless Dent Repair to remedy the problem.

End of story, how old is Paintless Dent Repair? It really depends on who you ask. If you had a a time machine you could probably get an exact year. But, those aren’t real. So instead of trying to pinpoint an actual date, why not pinpoint a date to repair that ding that just drives you crazy?
