A Minor Dent, is a dent that has a diameter larger than 50 mm. These dents are typically caused by impacts from baseballs, basketballs, resting elbows, hip checks, parking lot bumper rubs, ect. Sometimes vehicle body lines, and sharp corners near the dent, result in cracked paint at time of impact. An assessment of the dent is required. Since minor dents are larger in size, they do take longer to work out, and very often require polishing due to impact scratching.
