If you’ve owned your car for any significant amount of time, there is a good chance that it has gained some “battle scars” along the way. Small dents and paint scratches on the doors, bumpers and hood of a vehicle are common and often go unnoticed or get ignored by owners. Sometimes they are created by nature through falling tree branches or small hail storms. Other times, cosmetic damage is caused by other drivers, like some people who think nothing of banging their beat-up car door into yours. Regardless of the origin, it’s important to address these little imperfections early on so that money can be saved down the road. In other words, scratch and dent repair are important to the value of your vehicle.
