Creases or Creased Dents
MOST COMMONLY CAUSED BY SHOPPING TROLLEYS
There is nothing more annoying than coming back from a shopping trip to find that someone has carelessly let a shopping trolley crash into your car or opened a car door too wide and hit the side of your vehicle. Even a tree branch dragging across the door or the hood of your car can cause some damage, as well as some unappealing marks in your car.
These types of incidents will usually cause a creased dent, or a crease in the metal of your car. This unsightly dent can be quite frustrating to find, and with a line down the middle of your car, this type of dent can be very visible. These types of dents are commonly found on the side of your car, where an object such as another car door, has been dragged across.
Crease dents have a tendency to be longer in length, and due to the size and depth of these dents, they can cause sustained damage in the metal of your car. If creased dents are left unfixed for too long, they can cause the metal of your car to stretch, which in turn can alter the metal memory of your car, making dents harder to fix. Creases are also damaging to your car due to the fact that they can cause other dents in the metal around the original crease, so it is important not only for the cosmetic value of your car, but also for the structural integrity that when a crease is found, it is fixed right away.
