You are here Home  > Estimating Apps and Software >  Sullivan PDR Estimator

The Sullivan PDR Estimator (SPDRE) is a complete solution for PDR needs, providing for hail, large dent, and door ding estimates.

This iPhone app makes estimating fast, easy, and mobile! It also has some great features you can’t get on a computer, such as a VIN scanner and the ability to take pictures right into an estimate. By using the iPhone with your SPDRE account, you can do a complete estimate and never have to touch a piece of paper—whether an insurance company “matrix” or a paper estimate form!


  • Save valuable time when doing estimates.
  • No more “educated guessing” at what to charge for large dent PDR; our scientific system gives fair and consistent pricing, and allows you to adjust any price as you wish.
  • Avoid errors reading and writing VINs.
  • Avoid legibility problems.
  • Provide professional-looking estimates, neatly printed with your own logo at the top.
  • Digital estimates can be emailed and printed as desired.
  • No multi-part forms, no scanning or faxing or copying.
  • Access your estimates from your iPhone or on the web from your PC, laptop, or tablet computer.
  • No more shuffling through papers!

In short, we have priced SPDRE at a price that is much lower than the amount of time/money it will save you to use SPDRE!
