Happy January! We here at Dent Heads hope the holiday season was everything you wanted it to be. Now that the packed holiday season is winding down, we have a little more time to pay attention to our vehicles and the dents they may have sustained over the course of the hectic holidays. Once things mellow out a bit, don’t be surprised if you find yourself in need of car dent repair.


As a responsible car owner, no matter how dented your vehicle already is, it’s always best to prevent more of those dents from happening. Below, we’ll talk about a few common causes of winter dents and how to prevent them.

Nothing Fundamentally Separates a Winter Dent from a Summer Dent

A dent is not a good thing, regardless of when your car sustains it. The good news is that, regardless of the cause of the dent, there’s a good chance paintless dent repair can fix it. There’s often little that seperates a dent that happens in the summer from one that happens in the winter, aside from time.


However, what causes these dents tends to vary depending on the season. In the wintertime, be on the lookout for:


●        Cars that park too close to you. In the winter, commute times run long, and everyone is in a particular rush to get inside, away from the cold. This can lead to quite a bit of careless door-flinging when people exit their vehicles, which leads to other vehicles becoming dented. Invest in a good paintless dent repair job and try to park further away from your destination’s entrance, where there tends to be a smaller concentration of vehicles.

●        Wayward ice chunks. At a high enough velocity, almost anything can cause a dent in your car’s finish; yes, this includes ice chunks. Properly de-icing your vehicle before you leave for work each morning can help keep its exterior looking sleek and strong.
