None of us want to see our car damaged. But, unfortunately, life’s little mishaps often come at the worst time.
Whether it’s simply parking your car in the wrong spot, pulling over without looking or driving home in bad weather – it can easily result in a mark on your vehicle, which will need a car paint repair.
But fixing a car paint scratch isn’t something most car owners have to do on a regular basis. In fact, most cars are only likely to have their paintwork repaired a handful of times over their entire lifespan.
For this reason, not only can the process be mystifying but you may be wondering why it’s important to get your car scratches and dents repaired at all.
Why it’s important to fix paint scratches
While you might believe a scratch isn’t worth fixing, a simple scratch can lead to bigger problems down the line.
Once a car’s paint job is scratched, the clear coat that protects the paint job is usually removed. This means that your car could end up with further damage emerging such as rust.
And it gets worse with time. The longer that you wait to do something about the problem, the chance that rust will form increases. By having your scratches repaired right away, you can help protect your vehicle and its paint job.
Not only can a scratch cause a bigger issue in the future, neglecting a repaint or repair job may lower your chances of getting the full value for your car should you decide to sell it someday.
“Paint repair is an essential part of overall car vehicle maintenance,” Bumpertek owner and repairer Michael Micallef says. “By addressing car paint scratches immediately, you’ll be not only protecting your vehicle but protecting it’s value too.”
How does it work
Many vehicle owners don’t realise how easy it is to get their car paint repaired. After all, it’s not something they have to do on a regular basis.
Of all the car paint repair options, mobile services are often the most convenient – allowing customers to call up and book their repair at their own home, at a time that suits them.
“Most customers I speak to are shocked by how easy a mobile car paint repair can be. We’re able to work to their schedule and, in most cases, the repair is finished within hours, Michael explains.
“In today’s world, where working from home is ubiquitous, mobile paint repairs are the obvious choice to get your car scratch fixed”

“I would have no hesitation in recommending his expert workmanship. Thank you Michael for such a good job.”
