Sometimes you wonder why there are some sick people out
there who would hold something sharp and scratched it across
your car. Are they jealous of your new car? Or are they
angry that you have parked the spot that they have eyed
earlier? Or did your car block their way?
There are times when you lent your car to new drivers e.g.
your children and you find dents at various corners of your
car due to poor parking skills or reckless driving. Or you
could have parked your car in a secluded spot somewhere one
day and when you looked at your car the next morning, you
found a dent at the front of your car and the car plate
hanging precariously. Obviously, someone drove off in the
night after knocking your car! In all these instances, you
are thankful that no one is injured but you are angry that
you can’t find the culprits. The thought of driving an
unsightly car around through no fault of your own made you
really mad! The further thought of having to spend money for
your car makes you fume even more!
If the car scratch is small and not deep i.e. very mild, you
may just want to ignore it if it is not too obvious and does
not bother you or you could just cover up the minor scratch
with some wax-like substances available in the market.
Similarly, if the dent is small with no paint being scrapped
off, then there are service companies which could repair the
small dent without affecting the paint work and without the
need for re-spraying. However, if the scratch and dent are
deep, with paint chipped off, then there is a high risk of
your car getting rusty in time to come. In this case, not
only do you need an expert to undo the dent, the car will
need to be re-sprayed immediately. You can visit the
authorized dealer of specific brands of car, for example,
one from whom you purchased the car to do the necessary
Or you can look for car servicing companies that can repair
and re-spray various brands and models of cars. Or you may
seek out cheaper alternatives of free-lance car repair man
but you would have to be very certain of his skills and
integrity before you subject your precious car to his
disposal. So it is always wise to look for reliable car
servicing companies to help you do the magic on your car.
Consider only those that have long enough experience in
doing repairs and re-spray work, experience in handling the
type of car you are driving, recommended by friends,
colleagues and with favourable customers’ reviews etc. and
preferably one which will provide warranty for work done.
While everyone wishes to have pristine car at all times, the
inevitable does happen and knowing that you can find a
service company that can turn your precious car that has
been badly scratched and dented to look almost like new is
priceless. With makeover quickly and effectively done, there
will be no more prying eyes and gossiping about the state of
your car should something unfortunate happen to your car.
