Finding dents on the surface of a vehicle is an unavoidable aspect of car ownership. Car dents are difficult to plan for or predict, and are frequently the byproduct of a variety of incidental factors. There are a number of common causes of car dents. By understanding the common causes, automobile owners will have a higher likelihood of avoiding dents and protecting their vehicle.
Shopping Carts – Misplaced shopping carts that are scattered throughout parking lots can bump into the sides of vehicles, creating dents and dings.
Car Doors – A crowded parking lot or parking garage often results in rows of cars parked closely side-by-side. Clumsy passengers often accidentally open their car door too quickly and bump into their neighbor.
Hail – Hail and sleet are unpredictable natural elements. A spur of the moment hailstorm will leave vehicles with multiple dents, dings and scratches.
Car Wash – Automobiles exit automatic car washes with a clean finish; however, accidental bumps while on the conveyer are the frequent cause of minor damages.
Recreational Sports – A rogue baseball, basketball or frisbee flying through the air and bouncing off the hood of a car is an all-to-frequent sight during recreational sports
Low Speed Fender Bender – A minor collision at a slow speed will result in small dents on the bumper of a car.
Bicycles, road debris, driver error and parking too closely to the curb are additional common causes of small automobile dents and damages.
