Got sideswiped while parked

Hey guys, I recently was sideswiped while my car was parked. I don't know who did it or what did it, but i'm pretty mad. Do you think these damages can be fixed with a paintless dent removal specialist? I really dont feel like calling my insurance company. Thanks for the help

Omg I would be furious!!!!! As far as paintless dent repair I highly doubt they can do that. They mainly specialize in dents. This is more like a crease.

Easiest way of fixing that is a new fender.

Yikes, sorry to hear that. I'm in a similar boat -- neighbor towed me and messed up my bumper and small part of hood, then another neighbor hit and ran me in the next place I moved. Totally awesome kind of stuff right?

Well if the videos of PDR on YouTube are accurate I've seen worse get fixed . It shouldn't hurt to get at least an estimate.

Sorry about your car man I know it sucks.
