Angry Walmart likes putting dents in vehicles.

So yesterday I drove to Walmart to pick up some things and about 30 minutes later i come out to notice that theres 2 somewhat minor (minor but noticable) dents in my right door. Its not the kind of dent thats circular but the one thats like a line. Almost like someone scratched it but instead of scratching, it just left a dent. I dont really know how it happened mabey from a shopping cart or something. I should of just taken the time and parked AWAY from everyone...

Can anyone tell me if theres anyway I can get a dent like that out myself?

Thanks a lot!

There are companys out there they do paintless dent repair . My brother had hail damage on his Mustang Gt . Went to these guys and I will say "I was impressed " Couldn't see a thing . They did a hell of a job . You don't have the issues with having it in the body shop for weeks . Rental cars etc... Might want to check around and see if anybody in your area is doing it and see some of their work .

I did forget to tell ya . My wife drove my 300M to Wally world several years ago . She parked , went in , did her shopping . When she came out she got in the car and went to back out . Noticed the car didn't want to move . Gave it some gas and all of a sudden it broke loose with a loud noise . She stopped and got out . She ripped and pulled off part of the front bumper cover . What had happened when she pulled up to the individual parking curb , she didn't see that the rebar that they use to anchor the curb in place was sticking up about 4" . When she went and backed up , and with the 300M sitting so low to the ground , the rebar caught on the inner lip of the bumper cover and destroyed it . Went inside and saw the store manager . He took pics and agreeded it was their fault . Walmarts insurance company contacted me and made good on the repairs . Guess I got lucky because it was quite obvious what had happened . Went back the following day to take pics and the rebar was already taken care of .

go to car lots and ask when the dent person comes,or they may give you his number and he would probably meet you

Definitely use your paintless dent repair person. They do great work and it's a lot cheaper than the body shops.

$150 - $200 per panel is the customary charge.

blue you did get lucky lol, as a former assistant manager with wal mart, i can tell you they have a policy that states wal mart is not liable for anything that happens in the parking lot. i mean unless its somethin like a cart pusher runs into your car with a line of carts. almost every car or truck ive owned has had a runin with some carts in the wal mart parking lot. there really is no where safe in the lot you can park

That sucks about the dent! Hope you can find a place that'll do the paintless repair. Rain or shine I park well out of the way after I had my truck keyed at a local mall. The ONE time I saw a stall that was absolutely prime with enough space on either side to park the ram, I pull in, and come out an hour later with a gouge from the front wheel well to the middle of the back door... I was choked... getting it fixed in a week though
