When your car gets bumped or bashed, there are several options available to repair dents and dings. At DentFinish, we want to ensure you understand what each option means for you:
Many people’s first port of call when their car gets knocked is to contact their local body shop. There’s nothing wrong with this logic, however, this option is usually more costly and time consuming that the alternatives. Body shops often require you to leave your car with them meaning you will need to find alternative modes of transport, adding an additional cost on top of your repair bill.
Cheapest by far is the DIY option. There are many dent repair kits available on the market, equipping you with the tools to complete the work yourself. Be aware, repairing dents is a skilled art, choosing the do it yourself method adds the risk of causing more damage to the paintwork, which in turn could see you shelling out more than if you had call in the experts before you started.

It is a fact of life that on occasions decisions we make lead to our vehicles becoming damaged. From choosing to park your car on the road rather than in a driveway to parking next to a car owner that clearly takes no pride in their vehicle. We thought we would offer the following tips that will help you consider risks to your motor.
1. Parking in your Garage
Ironically car owners assume that parking their vehicle in their garage is the safest place to park a car. However, garages are often full of clutter, haphazardly placed posing greater risk than if your car were parked across the street. Keeping your garage neat and tidy, removing objects that could fall and hit your car will ensure your vehicle remains blemish free.
2. Parking in a Car Park
When parking your car consider how much room you will have when you attempt to exit the vehicle. However careful you are not to bash the door of the car next to yours does not mean that passengers or drivers will offer your car the same courtesy. It’s often worth considering the type of car you are parking next to, if it’s a beaten up old banger perhaps look to park next to a newer model, clean and shiny, offering the hope that the owner takes pride in caring for their car.
3. Parking in Less Desirable Areas
When leaving your car overnight consider the area in which you are parking your car, vandalism often occurs after dark, when perpetrators stand less chance of being spotted.
It’s impossible to protect your car from external factors out of your control, but hopefully considering our tips, will ensure the likelihood of damage to your car when parking is significantly reduced.
