Common Causes of Car Dents and How to Avoid Them

alloy wheel repair

Aside from car accidents, there are several other things that can cause the surface of your car to become dented. While there is still no sure way to avoid them, awareness is one of the best weapons you have to keep your car protected as much as possible. Here are some of the most common causes of car dents that you should know about and try to avoid if you can.

Doors of Other Cars

Parking too close to other cars puts your vehicle in danger of being accidentally dented when the other driver or passengers of the other car open their door hurriedly or carelessly. You can avoid this by choosing the least crowded parking area that you can find.


Strong winds or typhoons can blow things that can land on your car and cause dents, like umbrellas, branches, and so on.

Hailstorms have been known to cause ugly dents and much more serious damage to vehicles. You can avoid this by keeping your car inside a garage or in a protected area if there is a chance of bad weather.

Shopping Carts

Shopping carts are surprisingly the culprit in a vast number of car dents in the US. After loading their groceries into the car, many people simply drive away and leave their carts in the parking lot, making them a hazard to other cars. You can avoid this by making sure there are no grocery carts around your parking space.

In some cases, you might be lucky to get just a small scratch instead of unsightly dents. Such problems can easily be fixed by a good scratch repair Sydney, like Scratch Vanish. We offer free consultation and world-class mobile car scratch repair services.
