4 Common Causes of Dents and Dings | Hartford PDR

Common Causes of Minor Body Damage

Dents and dings happen. Often, there’s nothing we can do to stop it. But our Hartford PDR experts have some tricks to protect your car from potential damage. Here are a few ways you car might be placed in harms way without your knowing:

#1: Parking Accidents

Everyone has errands to run, and sometimes it’s on a tight schedule. Parking in the far corner of a lot might mean you have a mild walk ahead of you, but it puts your car miles from danger. Suddenly you don’t need to worry about careless drivers opening their doors, or stray shopping carts wandering into your car.

#2: Kids & Sports

If you live near a lot of kids or something like a park or a golf course then your car might score a nice catch if you’re unlucky. If you can park in a garage then that’s definitely the safest option. It’s also wise to educate children early on the value of something as expensive as a new car. However, this isn’t always in your control.

#3: Automatic Car Washes

The appeal of a 5 minute car wash without ever having to leave your vehicle is very tempting. Just know that you’re giving up some personal control when it comes to the safety of your ride. It might be wiser to give the car a thorough wash yourself.

#4: Slow Impact Fender Benders

Your fender is always the first place to be struck in an accident. If the collision happened at a slow speed then you might leave with only a minor fender bender. Depending on the extent of the damage, our Hartford PDR team can repair your fender no problem!

While these are some of the most common ways dents happen, they aren’t limited to only this list. If you find yourself the unfortunate victim of one of these incidences, our Hartford PDR team can restore your vehicle to its pre-accident condition.
