Vehicle Scratch FAQs

At Vehicle SMART we specialise in scratch repair and removal and today we are answering some of the most frequently asked questions surrounding car scratches.

There’s a scratch on my car, can it be repaired?

A professional is required to assess the damage in the first instance. At Vehicle SMART we have a proven track record of repairing the majority of car scratches and we do this correctly, professionally and cost-effectively. Scratches repaired include:

  • Damage caused by keys
  • Vandal scratches
  • Stone chip repair
How much does scratch repair cost?

SMART repair specialists take a number of factors into consideration when assessing damage including scratch size, depth, location and paintwork finish. At Vehicle SMART we offer a free, no obligation quote which you can request online.

How long does scratch repair take?

Depending on the factors already mentioned, scratch repair can be completed in as little as three hours. Timescales are discussed upon booking and with the option of mobile SMART repair available it doesn’t even have to interrupt your day.

Should I go through my insurance?

SMART repair is highly cost effective and often cheaper than paying an insurance excess. It’s worthwhile requesting a scratch repair quote initially prior to considering insurance claims (you’re likely to be pleasantly surprised).

How is the scratch repaired?

Our specialists use the SMART repair technique, an approach that works well and keeps costs down. The beauty of this technique is it allows technicians to focus solely on the damage and the smallest area surrounding it. SMART repair means there is no need to repaint an entire panel.

Does the repair have a guarantee?

General repairs that don’t include rust come with a lifetime warranty at Vehicle SMART.

Is there any aftercare I should be aware of?

After undergoing SMART repair we recommend not washing your vehicle for up to 48 hours. After this point you can treat it as normal. Your technician will explain aftercare to you upon collection.
