Shopping Car Dents: What You Need to Know

shopping cart

There are many items to be concerned with if you own a vehicle. Besides the unpredictable costs, monthly insurance premiums, and routine oil changes, there’s always the chance that you might have the occasional dent that occurs. Remarkably, the most common area that these occur isn’t in the busy traffic patterns that accompany city driving during rush hour but when your vehicle is parked at the local supermarket or shopping center. The culprits of these unintentional eyesores are shopping carts.

Now, there’s a chance that if you notice a small dent, you might not have repairs on your list of priorities. After all, there are always more pressing matters than taking your vehicle to a body shop, having the paint stripped, the dent hammered out, and being without transportation for a few days.

Minor dents, despite not looking like a serious risk, can cause considerable damage if they’re not adequately repaired. Despite being inanimate objects, they can grow in size overtime if they’re not properly taken care of and can even lead to rust and corrosion of your vehicle’s framework, which might not be covered by your warranty.

Now, there’s a better way to remove those dings and dents. Welcome to the world of Paintless Dent Repair(PDR).

PDR is a revolutionary way of getting dents taken care of in a cost-effective manner that takes much less time than a traditional body shop and doesn’t compromise your vehicle’s paint job.

Here’s how the process works. The exterior panels of your car are removed, and a technician uses special tools to work on the dent from behind the abrasion instead of in front of it. The panel is then placed back on your vehicle without any sign of the dent being there. This process can be done in hours and, depending on the size of the dent, sometimes much less.

The process cuts down repair times and is beneficial for both your car’s warranty coverage and the environment. If you have your car painted a different color than its original one, this can sometimes void corrosion coverage on your warranty. Because there are no chemicals involved with PDR, the paint is left alone, and no harmful chemicals or excess debris from the sanding and bonding process are used.
