Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) - How much should I pay?

I have a small dent (about the size of a golf ball) above my driver side front wheel well. My dealership said it would be ~ $100 to repair using PDR.

Any ideas on how much this should cost using PDR?

Any recommendations for a place to go to in the New Jersey area?

Thanks!

I paid 55$ and the guy came to my work. The repair looks great, can't even tell where the ding was.

I got quoted 125 for the entire panel, meaning any amount of dents from dent wizard PDR. I have just the little itty bitty one on my rear passenger fender and it bugs me that it costs 125 to have it popped out.

Usually it's about $60 for a quarter size dent, but then the price decrease for every dent removed after the first. I'm not sure now because I haven't had a dent for quite some time (knock on wood)

Haha, I've been to the PDR guy so many times with my old RSX-S, and a few times with the TL that he offers me a deal to buy him lunch and he repairs it for me when I have time to buy him.

$125.00 per panel is standard for dent wizard pricing. Pricing may vary due to size, and location. Remember it's PDR so to access inside the panel can take more effort. There is a
lower and upper support brace on the doors and some dents can not be removed in this
area

The Dent Wizard guys themselves only get about 50% of the price. Dent Wizard gets the rest. The quality of work you get doesn't really relate to price. A good "dent guy" can do a better job and sometimes will charge a lower rate (especially if he works for himself). My brother owns his own "dent business" and typically charges around $100 for any dent he has to travel to fix. If you bring the car to him often he can discount significantly. So, $100 is not unreasonable.
