Dent repairs

Dents in cars are usually caused by the car being hit by small objects, this can bend or scratch the car body. To fix car dents, shops may use a dent puller. However this may only work for smaller dents, if a dent is at an angle in the car it may not be possible to pull it. Larger dents in cars may require the use of heat and a suction dent puller. If the part of the car has a dent that is more than a 90 degree angle, the part of the car will likely have to be replaced as there is no way of pulling a dent from that angle.
If the dent cannot be fixed or will take a long amount of time, replacing the part may be easier for you and those providing the services. Replacing the cars part may also be cheaper for you as your insurance probably won’t cover dents in any policies.

If the dent in the car is going to be fixed, the technician will probably try a dent puller first then if that doesn’t work, they will probably resort to other methods. They may try a hammer and dolly, the tech will usually hammer at the cars body until it is back to its normal shape. A stud welder may also be used, this is when the technician welds studs into the dent in the car and uses pliers or pullers to pull the studs in the dent out; this brings the car back to its original shape and then the studs are removed.

There are also other tools that may be used to fix your car, however that’s up to the preference of the technician doing the repairs.
After a dent is pulled, a technician may use a filler to restore the surface of the car and to create an even finish. A hardener is often also applied after a dent has been pulled, after this it will be sanded and painted to match the rest of the car.

The time it takes to repair a dent in a car can vary quite a bit but it’s usually down to the size of the dent and how much availability there is at the shops in your area. For a traditional dent repair the time can be about 2 days to 2 weeks, this may be different for your technician as they may be busier than others, or have more space available to fix your car. If the dent is quite severe it may take a few weeks but if it’s a smaller dent it is possible to fix it in a couple of hours.

The price to fix dents in your car will definitely vary from place to place but the average prices are about £50-£500. Complex damage to the car can cost up to £1000 and may require a new part if the dent cannot be pulled. This will likely be different at each place you look at but the price also depends heavily on how much damage is done to the car
