Why have your car scratch repaired?
If you’re thinking of selling your car or know at some point you’ll be selling your car, you should have your car scratch repaired soon. This is because a car scratch will devalue your car. It raises questions about how well the car has been maintained too.
If you leave a car scratch for a long period of time it will eventually rust. The layers of paint that create a protective skin against the elements will wear around the scratch leading to rust which makes repairs more costly.
