17 Dec Tyler Price – Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) Training Testimonial
Working in the body shop at a Ford dealership in Moberly, MO, Tyler Price’s manager recognized how profitable it would be to have an expert Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) technician in house, rather than outsource dent repair jobs to contractors. This was actually Tyler’s second visit to Rightlook.com; he had previously taken other auto reconditioning training classes including Paint Touch-Up, Wheel Repair, Windshield Repair and Headlight Restoration which Tyler notes, “We really make a lot of money on those services.”
What Tyler had really appreciated from Rightlook’s PDR training was the opportunity he had to work on a live vehicle after honing his PDR skills on practice panels and hoods. “Not only do you get to work on a door, fender or hood, they actually pull in a real car and give you a chance to see what it’s actually like to work on a custom’s vehicle. That was phenomenal,” Tyler said.

My name is Tyler Price; I’m from Moberly, MO. My work is at a Ford dealership called Moberly Motors and I work at a body shop there, been working at the body shop for about 8 years and we spend a lot of money outsourcing to have people come in and maybe fix a wheel, or do a touch up on a car, or do some PDR work. This is my second time here, the first time I was here I did Paint Touch Up, Wheel Repair, Windshield Repair, and Headlight Restoration which were very good classes, we really make a lot of money on those services. I came back for a second time for the PDR class, the Paintless Dent Repair.
Garrett was my PDR trainer and man he is phenomenal, he really knows what he’s talking about. He’ll work with you as long as you want to work, if you want to stay until 7 o’clock at night he’ll work with you until you get what you want.
Even though there’s 5 or 6 people in the class, every time I ask a question he’s right there, it’s just me and him and there’s no one else standing around. I ask him to show me what I need to do and he’s definitely hands-on right there. We did a little bit of talking and as soon as the class started, we right on to fixing dents and he showed us how to do it.
I’ve been to some training in the past for my auto collision stuff but it was nothing compared to this. We actually had real hoods and real doors which is really cool. He puts dents in them all day long and you start learning how to fix them no matter what. It’s what you do all day which is awesome because it’s not a lot of learning it’s more of hands-on training. Not only do you get to work on a door, fender or hood, they actually pull in a real car and give you a chance to see what it’s actually like to work on a customer’s vehicle. That was phenomenal.
From day 1, I thought this was tough, I didn’t think I was going to get it and I kind of thought it wasn’t for me. But even starting on Tuesday on, I started getting it and Garrett made it really easy to understand and when they pulled in the two customer vehicles I felt like I could go home and start doing this immediately.
