Fixing a dent..

Does anyone have any advice on how to get this dent out? It literally happened 15 minutes ago....some guy opened his door hit it them quickly pulled off...it's quite noticeable from a distance and I just wanted to know if there's a way to get it out. Thanks..

My body shop has this small rubber vacuum thing. They put it on the dent, create a vacuum in there and the dent comes out no problem! Looks like you have some color loss there too. Touch-up!

Looks like you're in luck. That should be able to be "sucked" out, if not, it's in a good location to be pushed out. Paint looks fine, as damage go looks like it could be buffed out.

It could of been worse man! I'm glad it wasn't, my brand new paint got chipped within two weeks as well but my body shop touched it up and it looks like new again, so I know how it feels.

I just went to a body shop. They said it would be roughly 89$ to fix. Not horrible. Got lucky since paint wasn't chipped

Use the heel of a screwdriver an go back and forth over it, from the inside, and it will come right out.
