Never Try DIY Dent Repairs on Your Vehicle

Why shouldn’t you do your own dent repairs? Here’s why.

You don’t have the right tools.

Unless you’re a retired professional with a workshop full of your own tools, you simply don’t have the right tools to do the job properly. So, whatever dent repairs you attempt are going to be temporarily successful at best. Here at Auto Body Xperts, we had skilled professionals who focus solely on dent repair. They have the tools, skills, at patients to do the job right the first time.

You could reduce the integrity of your car’s body.

Your car’s exterior protects you from the elements and it is the number one thing protecting you in the case of an accident. Professionals understand this. They know when extra reinforcement is required. They make sure the structural integrity of your car’s exterior is maintained. They make sure your vehicle is repaired correctly so it is safe to drive!

Your insurance might cover it.

If your insurance covers the repairs, just have a professional do it and save yourself the headache.

You could make it worse.

If you aren’t sure what you are doing, but think that you and your buddies can figure it out, think twice before starting your DIY repair. You could end up making the problem worse. Even if it ends up looking great, you could end up with rust forming under the repair, or worse. If you make the problem worse before you take it to a professional, you are going to end up paying a lot more, and your insurance may no longer cover those costs.


I know it may be tempting to watch a YouTube video or have your buddy do it who kind of knows how to do it, but safety is the most important thing. We will make sure the vehicle is repaired safely and done correctly to maintain the value of your vehicle.
