Default door ding

I promised my self I would never park by anyone when I got a new car because my old one had so many door dings.
I come out of school and some *** squeezed next to me (I was parked somewhat by a curb) and there is a small ding in my door. I wanted to wait for him and then run over him. But I did not, but the question is how do you get rid of these things. It is tiny but it drives me nuts!!!!!!!!

Yes there are many paintless dent removal professionals you can search for that can make that ding disappear. I have had 3 dents taken out by my local guy and they're perfect.

How much does it usually run to get them removed?

I used Dentwizards. http://www.dentwizard.com
The technician guy who did mine is married to one of my coworkers. He charged me like $20 a dent for 3 door dings, total $60. He also took care of around 4 or 5 on my wife'* car for another $60. But they sort of just look at it and give you a price for how much time it'* going to take them. There might be room to haggle. He showed me a big dent (maybe 8" diameter) in a car in the parking lot and said he'd completely remove that for around $210. It would cost a lot more to have a body shop grind the paint off, straighten it, and refinish it.

But for door dings, I'd just go with DentWizards. I'm very happy with the results.

Sorry to hear about that. People suck. I had a similar experience today, but thankfully I didn't notice damage. I made myself the same promise to park far away, but I decided to be nice to my wife today since the "expectant mother" spot was open at Sam'* Club. I figured I was OK since there was plenty of space on either side of the car. But of course we come back out and what do I see, but two shopping carts nestled right up within an inch of my front end.
