Default Dent Repair (Auto)

Drove our 2 week old brand new car into the garage and BOOM something fell off (well, not quite "fell off" - my bad!) the shelf above it and made about a approx 2" round dent dead center on the hood. No paint damage. Looks almost like hail damage if it had hailed Wife says LEAVE IT but I just can't. Can anyone recommend someone to fix this? I know there are people who will come to your home and do it (assuming no paint damage). Anyone here actually use one and curious to know a ballpark price to fix. The only thread I could find here was many years old.

On 441 in Lady Lake near the old Par Car Dealership. I think it’s Joe Hudson’s. I’ll check it out when I get home. They are great and reasonable. I was directed there by TOTV’S and was very happy. Sorry for your trouble.

BINGO (352) 561-4029 They Negotiate for $ Cash $ so I've heard thru the Grapevine.

Florida Dent Repair, 352-978-1997. I think it is a one man business run by a guy named Jason. He came to my house about a year ago and repaired a small dent from a door ding on my car. He did an excellent job and charged me $75.

If there are no creases try to use a toilet plunger compress it softly then pull it up
Hope it will pop out. Good luck

Joe Hudson's was The Car Guys. Hudson's bought the Car Guys but all the folks are the same. They do great work, are reasonable and quick, shopped several places a couple years ago. Depending on the damage, if you need more than a simple dent repair I would recommend giving them a look

Definitely Joe Hudson on 441. Beautiful work and fair prices. Just got my granddaughter's car fixed. Looks like new and is guarantee for life. (As long as she doesn't dent it again). Wonderful people to work with. Took only 2 days and that was around Thanksgiving.

Thank you! He did a great job. Came to my house the next day after I called. Even better than HE expected due to location of dent on hood. All for $75. Dealer wanted 3x that. If it wasn't a 3 week old car I probably wouldn't have even bothered but I saw it every time I drove and I know I caused it!
