If your car has been the recipient of a dent, you know the sinking feeling that accompanies it. Dents aren’t pretty to look at, and they can even cause rust to develop. You’ll want to repair a dent quickly to get your vehicle looking new again. Fortunately, if you live or work in Coeur d’Alene, dent repair is fast and easy when you bring your vehicle to the skilled technicians at the Knudtsen Abra Body Shop. Our technicians will eliminate the dent as it was never there. Let’s look at some of the most common causes of dents.
Car Doors: As far as dents are concerned, parking lots are fraught with danger. At our CDA dent repair shop, we see many door dings resulting from an inconsiderate driver parked in the next spot who opened the door too quickly. If you’re parking your vehicle in a lot, park in an empty section of the lot. You may have to do a little more walking, but it will reduce the chances of your car getting dinged by another driver.
Shopping Carts: Shopping carts are another cause of dents in parking lots. Shopping carts are one of the leading causes of car dents. Parking at a distance from other cars in the lot will help to keep your vehicle from getting dented or scratched by a shopping cart.
Tight Parking Spaces: Tight parking spaces are another danger in parking lots and when parking on the street. Trying to squeeze your car into or out of a tight parking space makes it more likely you’ll hit another vehicle. A good rule to follow is to avoid difficult parking situations.
Tree Branches: Weather can lead to car dents. Heavy winds can topple tree branches onto your vehicle, resulting in dents and scratches.
Hail: Hail is possibly the primary cause of weather damage to cars. While large hailstones can do significant damage, hail doesn’t have to be very big to dent your vehicle. Hailstones are likely to cause multiple dents.
Road Debris: Rocks, sticks, and other debris in the road can be picked up by trucks and other vehicles, where they can crash into your car while you’re driving at highway speeds. Even small objects can damage your vehicle significantly. Keep a sensible distance behind other cars. If possible, don’t drive on roads where construction is taking place.
Now for the good news. If your car gets a dent, the repair team at the Knudtsen Abra Body Shop can help. We can repair all kinds of dents, whatever the cause. Many dents can be fixed using an inexpensive paintless dent removal process that will have your car looking new again.
One benefit of paintless dent repair is that it can often be done quickly. You may even be able to get your vehicle back the same day. Some dent repair jobs take longer, depending on how many dents need to be repaired and the size and location of the dent. Repairing damage from hail will take longer than other dents.
