How much does it cost to fix a ding in a car door?

The typical pricing structure is around $75-$125 for dents and dings on the door. Bigger dents, which usually arise from foreign objects and collisions, can usually run between $150-$300. The price of the collision dent repair depends on the size, location, and how deep the dent is in the car’s exterior.

Are door dings fixable?

Most door dings, creases and hail damage do not damage paint surfaces and are highly fixable using PDR methods. A body shop will typically just “fill” the dent with bondo or fillers, sand it smooth, then repaint the dented area and also much of the surrounding areas. Repainting of your vehicle depreciates its value.

Is a door ding collision or comprehensive?

If your car’s door was damaged in the incident, then you could make a claim under your collision coverage. Your car’s damage is due to your door colliding with something, so the claim falls under this coverage and not your comprehensive coverage. Your collision deductible would be due.
