Mobile PDR Tech vs Hail Chasing

Choosing the right training course will depend on whether you want to become a mobile pdr tech or hail chaser.  There are advantages and disadvantages in each situation. Mobile PDR techs generally have low overheads as it unnecessary to have a factory set up. They can also expect consistent work once they are established. Unfortunately mobile techs have less flexibility to chase hail.

On the other hand hail chasers have higher overheads. This is due to expenses such as flights, accommodation and paying a percentage of their income to a panel shop or factory. Depending on the flexibility of the Hail chaser there is the option to only work storms in Australia and work up to 6 months a year or travel worldwide and work in Germany, New Zealand or the United States and work year round. Experienced hail chasers have been known to earn up to $20,000 per week during the peak of the season.

For students interested in becoming mobile PDR techs I would recommend either the 1 week or 2 week training course, depending on your expectations. For the students that are interested in a career as a hail chaser I would suggest the 4 week training course.

Marketing your paintless dent removal business

If you choose to become a mobile pdr tech there are several options listed below for obtaining work

These include:

  • Car yards
  • Private vehicles
  • Car rental agencies
  • Panel shops
  • Insurance companies
  • Fleet companies

If you choose to become a hail chaser many of the above options won’t be suitable. In this case your best chance of quality employment is to network with other members of this industry. Your industry connections can ensure you find work in each storm.

Our Paintless Dent Removal Training(PDR) Testimonials

“In November 2012, I completed the 4 week dent removal training course offered by Neil at Dent World Training School.

I was concerned I wouldn’t be able to learn what I needed to run a successful business in 4 short weeks. However, those concerns were unfounded, due to the thorough one on one training provided by Neil.

Neil’s training has taught me all aspects of paintless dent removal and enabled me to establish my own small business servicing car yards, the public and various insurance companies.”

Mal Rees,
Proprietor/ owner, Accident n Hail Paintless Dent Removals

“Neil from Dent World’s training was a great way to learn paintless dent removal. His one on one teaching made it easy to pick up the techniques required to repair dents all around the vehicle including hail damage.

I have been successfully running my own business ‘J & K Dent Removal’ since being trained in 2011 and would recommend others to use the Dent World Training School.”
