Dropped A7R3, have it checked?

Hi all,

Long time reader, with a question of my own for the first time.

TL:DR: dropped an A7Riii + 24-105. Seems fine (IBIS/shutter), will do calibration check myself, but should it be checked anyway?

So, after a few months the dreaded first drop is there.
Not while on the mountain in the morning to capture the sunrise over the Atlantic, but during a wine tasting in the afternoon. Ugh.
Basically, I unzipped the bag to capture some images, lady came with our glasses, and due to the sudden rush, I forgot that the bag was already open and when I reached to pick up the bag, the camera (+mounted 24-105 G) jumped oud horizontally over a Portugese style pebble stone floor.

The camera went horizontal for a meter. Only the hood is dented and there is some paint chipped off of one of the bottom corners. The bottom plate (joby) and hood seem to have taken the brunt.

I read that in some drops the camera will go into error mode. I did not see this, though mine was off. I will take some test pictures to check calibration. IBIS and shutter seem fine.
Though is there anything I should keep in consideration about the R3? Should I have it checked for anything I can't?

Any thoughts are appreciated!

p.s. I'm remarkably untouched by the nicks. It's a tool, not a jewel. Treated my former camera as a jewel and missed way to much opportunities that way. I just want to make sure that my tool stays working properly!
