dent in door

soo the other day i parked my car in a narrow street with cars on both sides so thought ill mount the kerb as i dont want anyone scraping my car trying to drive down the street.
mrs opens the door and whacked it into the wall of somebodies house. now there is a dent right on the edge of the door. door closes fine but theres a major miss match of how the door sits and the door and the adjacent panel obviously dont look right now.

The job for a dent repair person, should be able to sort it pretty easily.

I was going to say easy job for a dent repair guy, and of course it is. However, is the paint cracked at the bottom of the dent? If it is, then it's a repaint job for it to be 100%.

paint has come off as it would have scrapped when it made contact with the brick wall, when i heard the sound i just stopped i was like no that did not just happen!

because the paint thats come off is right on the edge of the door i was thinking of just touching it up for now.

was going to call dent experts.
anyone ever used a similar service? any good?

OK. If it's just on the edge, then it's a simple touch in. So long as the paint isn't cracked around the dent, then that's a relief!

Same thing happened to me - windy day and she got out to get the gate, after I asked her to be careful because of the wind. Wind caught the door and slammed it hard into the brick wall. My dent looks just like yours, with the same paint damage

Here is a tip
Things you need
1- Heat gun or hair dryer
2-plastic hammer if small ,, or a dally
If not a regular hammer would. Work as long as is flat
3- a piece of 2x4
4- towel

What to do
heat up a bit the spot were the dent is ,wrap the 2x4 with the towel and place it by the door , hit the inside of the door with the hammer until it looks straight ,,

The heat would prevent the paint from chipping and also help the metal to become more flexible ,,,,,
