Parking Lots

Parking lots are dent magnets. There are so, so many potential risks that your car runs at the same time that it is almost a safe bet that you will get a dent in a parking lot. Parking spaces sometimes are narrow, boosting chances of slamming a door against your car. Not all drivers are equally skilled, and parking could be quite challenging for many. There are good chances that some miss a corner hitting your vehicle. Don’t forget the well-known wandering lose shopping carts. Shopping carts have sharp metal ends and can easily damage your bodywork.

Hail Damage

Many consider hail damage, as the number one reason cars can get dents on the bodywork. Hailstones have excessive destructive power and do severe damage to vehicles and windshields. Hailstorms are unpredictable and can appear virtually anywhere. However, areas such as Colorado are more prone to suffer this kind of weather event with billions of dollars in damage every year.

Factory Dents

Most of the car owners are not even aware that most cars are born already dented. That’s right! The car’s metal panels are transported in factories through assembly lines, sometimes hitting each other making tiny dents and creases. These damages are so small that manufacturers won’t notice them until the car is already painted.
