    Thanks for the reply. Maybe I did not explain right. My point is that if I have the same 3 dents in the car and shop around I shuold be getting similar prices but I am seeing quotes to fix all three dents ranging from 150 dollars to 300 dollars.

    Every PDR tech you find has a different level of talent/experience. A newer tech with less experience who isn't as competent is willing to drop the price to get the work. An established tech who does great work probably isn't going to give any breaks, since he can get his higher prices anywhere.

    Depends on what you want for quality.

    If you want a fiscal break generally you will pay for it with the quality you receive.

    The PDR market is beginning to find some stability with pricing, as insurance companies are getting involved and "setting" guidelines.

    --It costs about $75.00 to repair 1 ding in your door no bigger than a quarter. If damage is on a separate panel, you will charged for another panel, usually being charged less than the 1st panel. If the remaining damage is on the same panel, you should you shouldn't be charged much more than the origianl $75 because the tech is already "in" that panel and it isn't usually difficult to repair an additional ding.--

    CHOP- there are some different techniques out there, but none justify the huge disparities in pricing. Usually the differences in pricing is due to talent and workload.
