Don’t leave dents behind, get them fixed!

 In Blog

It doesn’t matter how hard we try to take optimal care of our rides. Dents and scratches will eventually appear. Most of us, who just can’t stand them will try fixing them as soon as possible. There are some, however,  who even though they can’t stand looking at their car dented, they leave the dent repair to last minute. There are some that just consider dents on their car as a way to make a statement about their lifestyle.

The truth is that no matter the reason, you should get all dents and scratches fixed as soon as possible.  Otherwise, your car won’t only lose value significantly, but it will also be exposed to suffer more serious and expensive damages.

Car dents can come from several sources. It is as simple as parking too close to another car and opening your door too fast or even from a heavy hailstorm. No matter how your car got dented, if you allow it to stay for too long, it will eventually turn to rust and corrosion and will damage other parts of your car’s structure.

Car’s structure at risk

Rust can be formed without noticed

Not fixing car dents can lead to more serious problems like rust.

It is common for car owners to overlook minor paint damages, but even a tiny scratch can wreak havoc on the safety and quality of your vehicle. A car’s main body components are constructed from steel and throughout the years it will weaken down. When your car’s paint gets scratched or dinged the sealed coat of paint that keeps your car’s components strong won’t works to its full potential, compromising the exterior of your car, especially if the paint gets cracked.

If you don’t act quickly your car’s structure will be susceptible to rusting and corrosion over time, even faster than you expected, leading to more serious and expensive problems. Rust can even start to form underneath the top surface and you won’t notice it until it is too late, spreading and eating away the steel structure.

Car’s value

Keeping your car’s original paint job intact will not only keep its appearance looking great, but it will boost its resale value, when the time to change your car arrives. In fact, car buyers, appraisers and the automotive industry in general, care a lot about the car’s paint job. It is at the same level of importance as its mechanical condition.
