What To Do When Your Car Needs Dent Repair 

If your car gets a dent in it, you must act quickly. Leaving damage on the body of your car can lead to corrosion, decrease in resale value, and honestly, it just does not look very good.

The first thing you should do is assess the damage. Is it a large, deep dent? Is it a shallow dent? Are there many little dents? Is the paint scratched? …etc.

What you will do next depends on the answers to these questions. If you are not sure, then bring it to a shop to have them assess it for you. 

When To Try To DIY On Your Car’s Dent 

DIY is a nice option when you have the time and skill to do it. However, not all dents can be fixed at home. It is important to know what types of dents can be easily done yourself and which ones would be biting off more than you can chew.

If it is a shallow dent with no missing paint then you can try to fix the dent yourself.

The pro of fixing the dent yourself is the potential to save money. The cons are if you do it wrong you can cause further damage that is more expensive in the end.

If you are confident that you have the time and skill to fix your small dent yourself then you can try one of the following DIY methods:

1.Use a specialty tool kit

2.The boiling water method 

3.The plunger method

4.The dry ice method

If you don’t have success with any of these methods for the dent in your car then you can call professionals who do paintless dent repair.
