* When doing dent removal, great care is taken to be able to re-use the original lid.  However, there is the possibility when removing/installing the original lid that the lid may crack.  If this occurs, there will be an additional fee for a similar donor lid to replace the original.  

Shipping & Insurance:

The customer is responsible for shipping and insurance costs.  If insurance is not requested then it is the customer’s responsibility for any cans that are damaged or lost during the shipping process.  The USPS will be used to ship cans.


Terms & Conditions:

Repair work will only be completed if the customer agrees to the disclaimer and if they sell the can that they will disclose the work that has been done.


No guarantees are made regarding the quality of the work as the condition of the metal and paint on older cans varies sometimes resulting in unpredictable results.  Working on cans may result in the following damage:

  • When stretching a can the flange may crack thus making it impossible to stretch the can.
  • When stretching a can the condition of the flange is unknown and occasionally the paint on it is discolored or damaged.  This will impact how the newly exposed paint matches with the rest of the can.
  • Paint may crack,chip, or peel during the process of taking off the lid, removing dents, removing drinking cup handles, rolling up the lips on drinking cups, or when stretching a can.
  • Lids may crack or become damaged during the removal process making them unuseable.  If this occurs, the customer is responsible for finding a suitable donor lid.
  • It is possible the flat sheet may develop scratches during the rolling process.  Steps are taken to minimize this, but the risk can not be completely eliminated.
  • When rolling a can, the metal can crack when forming the seam.  This is out of our control and when it happens the can can’t be rolled.
  • Due to circumstances beyond our control paint may crack, chip, or peel during the repair process.
  • Due to the unpredictable aging of old metal it is possible that the soldered seam may develop tarnish or corrosion.  If this occurs the area can be cleaned up with steel wool.

Steps are taken to minimize the risk of damage.  We will let you know if we foresee a significant chance of damage prior to starting the work.  Due to the unpredictable nature of older cans we are not responsible for any damage that results during the can repair process.
