Why Do I Need to Book a Car Dent Repair or Removal?

Even the smallest dent can cause problems. However, the larger a dent is, or the longer you leave it, the worse the problem can become.

Dents can also corrode and cause structural damage if left unrepaired. This can lead to more expensive repairs in the future.

Buyers won’t pay a high price for your car if it needs a dent repair. Bodywork damage indicates a lack of care and also hints at underlying mechanical issues.

However, dent removals are usually quite straightforward for a car body shop.


When Do I Need to Book a Dent Repair or Removal?

If you've been involved in any of the following minor collisions, you should book a dent repair as soon as possible to get the problem fixed:

  • A car door swung into your vehicle
  • Hit by a shopping trolley
  • Hail damage
  • You have hit a pole, bollard, curb or another car
  • Fallen tree branches


Enter your car reg, select the damaged area and compare estimates from SMART repair centres near you. Simply choose a repairer and book online - no payment is taken, you'll pay directly after the repair is complete.

How Does the Dent Removal Process Work?

  1. Using specialist dent removal tools, an expert technician will return the bodywork to its correct shape.
  2. Once the dent has been removed, they will inspect the damaged area for scratches.

If the paintwork is damaged:

  1. They will sand the area to remove rough patches and then fill in the dent. Please note - if you have specified that there is no paint damage, this will incur additional costs. Please be careful to check whether or not there is any damage to the paintwork.
  2. They rub down the damaged area before applying colour-matched paint and specialist lacquer.
  3. Finally, they polish and buff the area to return your car to showroom condition.
