was backing up into a driveway to get some campfire wood in my new (to me) 2015 Jeep Cherokee when I heard the muffled sound of the right rear quarter panel brushing up against a mailbox. My first thought was about needing to buy somebody a new mailbox, but luckily it was unscathed. My Jeep, however, had a fist-sized dent right in the fold over the tire. Great! What am I going to do? Leave it and answer a bazillion questions over the next several years? Try to pop it out myself? (It wouldn’t budge when I tried using the suction cup from my GPS.) There was no way I was going to a bodyshop for such a small repair.
Once I got home I called Kent’s Dents. After texting Kent some photos he said, “Let’s see if we can make that dent disappear.” I would like to say that once Kent worked his magic on the dent that it just disappeared, but it wasn’t magic. Don’t get me wrong, the dent is gone. Like it was never there! But it wasn’t magic. It was painstaking attention to detail. It was patient professionalism. It was caring about my car almost more than I did. He took his time pulling, tapping, buffing, and coaxing the metal to return to its original shape. As I watched Kent work, it was evident that he enjoys his work, and that he wants it done right. You don’t have to talk to Kent long until you also realize he is a man of integrity, and that may have been the best part of the whole experience. I was truly amazed by the results, and I even more impressed by the man behind Kent’s Dents.
Thanks for making my dent disappear!
