Got dents? We are here to help......
Welcome to Panel Perfect, Gloucestershire's leading and only I.M.I. certified Paintless Dent Removal specialists.
Covid-19 Update (correct as of 23rd March 2020)
Following the government’s latest guidelines and recommendations we are not carrying out repairs at this time. We will review this again in 3 weeks time (mid April).
Although our business is low risk, we are not a key service.
We have made this difficult decision in order to keep our customers and all families safe and to minimise any unnecessary travel.
I apologise for any inconvenience and we hope to be back to some sort of normality very soon, albeit with a few extra precautions in place to keep everyone safe.
In the meantime we are here to offer advice, quotes and deal with your enquiries, so please feel free to send your questions and photos and we will be happy to get back to you as soon as we can (normally 24-48 hours). Repairs and appointments will be arranged as soon as possible.
WHAT WE DO....
- We remove minor dents your car, just as if your dent never happened.
- Our repairs retain the factory paint, finish and warranty.
- Dents are carefully and skillfully crafted out NOT covered up with filler and new paint.
- Return your cars bodywork back to its original condition, retain its value and factory finish. Great for lease returns or finance (PCP) return vehicles too!
- Workshop - for larger, highest quality jobs or if the British weather is at it's worse!
- Mobile repairs - smaller dents carried out at a time and location ideal for you. (subject to T&C's)
WHAT WE DO NOT DO....
- Paintwork- if your car is badly scratched or the paint is cracked/missing, PDR may not be your best choice, if in doubt send us your enquiry.
- Filler- we remove dents without filler or repalcing panels, if your panel is extremely creased it may require replacement.
- Cracked/scratched bumpers.
- Alloy wheel scuffs/cracks/corrosion.
BENEFITS OF P.D.R.
- Keep the original paint - factory paint is as good as it gets, if you can retain this its better for the car, better for the environment and better for your pocket!
- No colour matching issues - because we work with the original finish, we guaranee no issues with paint matching or cracking / shrinking filler, which can be a problem with bodyshop repairs.
- Maintain manufacturer's warranty - any respray will not be covered by your cars corrosion/paint warranty, manufactures will only warranty factory paint, they will test the depth of the paint in the event of a claim.
- Fast and convenient - mobile repairs for smaller dents or larger dents can be tackled in our workshop in a matter of hours...not days.
- Cost effective - Paintless dent repair is generally cheaper than a good body shop repair by some way which makes it great value for money. Be wary of ‘cheap’ or shoddy body work jobs they will show.
- Environmentally sound - We use very few or no chemicals during our repairs, no sanding, grinding or spraying.
Workshop - We have Gloucestershire's only specialist Paintless Dent Repair workshop where we can carry out repairs regardless of the weather, tackle larger jobs or where the absolute highest quality is required. We have a comfortable waiting area, free wifi, TV and refreshments.

A bit about us.
My name is Mark Clapham, owner and technician of Panel Perfect. I have been repairing dents, dings and creases every day since 2004 so you could say I'm a bit of a dent nerd!
We are completely independant, NOT part of a franchise, so our quality is consistantly high!
Panel Perfect is proud to be Gloucestershire's only I.M.I. accredited dent removal company this is a practical and theory test that can not just be bought into. The certification includes practical, theoretical and ethical testing that must be passed before accreditation is issued. see IMI Accreditation here Watch out for part time or inexperienced technicians who can cause more damage than they fix!
I am a huge advocate of dent removal and know that it is the best way to deal with minor dents. I have been working hard for some years to make this innovative and expanding technique common knowledge to the public, it has long been a secret within the motor trade.
Back in 2004 I was working for Dent Wizard/Dent Master (the world’s largest Dent Removal Company), their training was a great start, but ever since then I have kept up to date with the latest cutting edge techniques and tooling meaning that I can often repair larger and more complex damage to a higher standard than our competition, check out our Youtube channel for the videos and here for our 5* Google reviews , Facebook reviews and Yell.com reviews
I set up Panel Perfect in 2007 and I am proud to work with many local vehicle dealerships including Aston Martin, Bentley, Range Rover/Land Rover, Mercedes Benz, Volkswagen, Lexus and Toyota to name but a few, so you can be assured that your car will be repaired by the best.
We also do lots of work for local body shops as they know it is the best way to repair a minor dent. Although they will offer a paintless dent repair as a service they call me as its such a specialist skill! So cut out the middleman and get in touch.
I'm a petrol-head, I always have been, so I like to treat each vehicle regardless of its marque as if it were my own, so you can be sure it's in good hands, I can discuss exactly what is involved with your specific repair and vehicle so that you know what is happening at each step.
