One of my biggest pet peeves is some LAZY SOB that can't take a cart back. I feel for you. People just don't appreciate other peoples property. If they had to pay for carelessness they might think about it once. (not going to see that in the future anytime soon) Hope KARMA gets 'em.

Ultimately that what insurance is for, I would ask around if the store has any security camera’s. I would suspect they will be very willing to help, lots of reasons for this not all nefarious. Maybe the wind pushed it, maybe a kid let it go with out knowing where it was rolling to. We have had our car ran into in a parking lot, lots of lack of respect out there. Get it fixed and move on, but if you find out someone did this on purpose show no mercy because none was shown to your property.

man, that had to be rolling pretty fast to do that much damage.

PDR should take out the majority of that, but it might not be "perfect" afterwards.

Yes, definitely deliberate not the "universe" or the wind, Someone rammed that hard. Do you have vandalism coverage with your insurance policy? I would try a paint-less dent removal pro first. Contact some body shops or dealerships to get recommendations of a good professional PDR guy. They can perform wonders.

Man that really stinks. Can’t stand it when people don’t take their carts back.
Best instant karma I’ve seen was in a HEB parking lot. Guy had a nice suv and left his cart out and drove away. Well that same cart took off in our Texas wind and caught him as he exited the parking lot. Laughed so hard I almost pissed my pants.

I’d agree that looks like someone pushed it. The one I seen was moving really fast 40mph winds and didn’t cause that big of a dent. The wind in the background is blowing towards the rear of your car. (Flag in background)

Some jealous POS did that, no question about it.
Or some dumbass snowflake trying to make a Climate Change statement.

I read that they are letting air out of SUV tires in NYC........

Sad.

wow... that makes me sick just looking at it. That was a lot of cart force for that damage. Hopefully there is some survailance footage for you to determine how it happened?

Good luck with the repairs.

Are there other businesses other than the store you went to in that area? Looks like a shopping center. You could file a hit and run report if you haven’t already, and ask the shops - if there are any -if you might see their footage, or ask them not to delete their footage for that day because of an ongoing investigation. I would think that whomever did that might have gotten into their car somewhat quickly after the damage, and possibly have driven a little erratically on their way out

It also makes me sick just looking at it. That was not by accident, my guess is some kids walking through the lot, pulled that crap.
I hope you find the offender.
