Is it necessary to fix minor scratches and dents on your car?

Yes, it is necessary to fix minor scratches and dents on your car. You should always aim to keep your car in tip-top condition. Reducing damage and maintaining the resale value of your car should be a top priority.

Always fix minor scratches and dents

What’s the problem with minor scratches and dents? Scratches and dents not only make your car look unattractive, but they also can cause damage to your car. If you want your car to retain its resale value, you need to ensure your car is protected by a Scratch and Dent Insurance policy.

Protecting your resale value

While you may not give much thought to the exterior of your car at the moment, it will be an important factor when it comes to selling your car. Scratches and dents are noticeable and detract from the value of your vehicle. When it comes time to sell your car, don’t you want to get the best price you can? With minor scratches and dents on your car, this won’t be possible. No one wants to buy a car that has scratches and dents.

Rust is no joke

While your car’s paintwork is there to make your car look beautiful, it’s also there to protect your car from the elements. When there’s a minor scratch or dent on your car, this can cause the integrity of your paintwork to deteriorate. This means that your car will be more prone to rust or corrosion. The paint on your car is there for a reason. You should protect it from scratches and dents.

If you want to retain your car’s value and be free from rust, you may want to consider getting your car repaired sooner rather than later. A Scratch and Dent Insurance policy from Bidvest Insurance can help you do this.
