Large dents come from a wide variety of sources and can be very off-putting upon first glance. Their size is intimidating and the shape can seem impossible to repair. However, that is rarely the case. In fact, large dents are often easier to restore than their tiny counterparts.

Since the dent is so big, the tension in the metal is spread out. This means it is less likely to tear or be damaged in general during the repair process. Keep in mind that every dent is different and should be assessed by a professional before repairs.

There are many causes of large dents:

  • Careless shoppers or runaway carts
  • Rowdy kids
  • Local wildlife
  • Inattentive drivers leaving their cars
