Jon has been a Dent Devils franchisee since January 2002 and following their extensive training has been carrying out Paintless Dent Repairs across East Sussexsince then. He was one of the first PDR technicians in the UKto gain the status of Master Technician following accreditation by the Institute of the Motor Industry in 2012. He has also been tested and accredited by the ATA (automotive technician accreditation) and gained his Level 2 Electric Vehicle certification to be able to carry out repairs safely on all types of vehicles including electric and hybrid.

As well as keeping up to date with the industry standard qualifications Jon also keeps a keen eye on new tooling and technology that becomes available and is always keen to get his hands on something new that is going to help perform better repairs on his customer’s cars as well as being able to fix dents that would otherwise have been impossible and ended up in the body shop. Jon has also competed in the ‘PDR Masters’ competition on several occasions being the first UK technician to make the final in 2017 only to be beaten by Artur Hofmeister from Germany.

In recent years Jon has been joined by other technicians, Petar Petrov and Adam Bookham to be able to offer their services to the ever growing number of clients as they learn about what can be done with PDR and choose that route over a “traditional” body shop repair. The team have a passion for saving the factory paint on their customer’s cars and believe that PDR is the best possible form of car body repair, this results in their customers retaining the originality of their cars as well as saving huge sums of money over manufacturer approved body shop costs.

In August 2019 Dent Devils East Sussex will open the company’s first purpose built Paintless Dent Repair facility in Eastbourne. This facility creates the perfect environment to be able to carry out larger and more complex repairs than would otherwise be considered impossible and they regularly repair damage that has been turned down by other companies due to their lack of the latest tooling, technologies and suitable facilities. 

The workshop is open to all with repairs regularly being carried out for Car manufacturers, dealerships, hire companies, body shops and insurance companies as well as members of the public. Anyone that would like advice on PDR or a quote to repair their vehicle is welcome to call in to the shop on the Birch Estate in Eastbourne.
