Some vehicle owners believe that they can afford to allow small- and medium-sized dings or dents to remain in the surfaces of their vehicles. Yet, any surface mark or disturbance can reduce your vehicle’s value. Consider the following:
– Most buyers, unless they’re looking for a cheap, beater car, dislike the look of cosmetic damage. Marks can also make potential buyers think that a vehicle has hidden damage as well.
– After some buyers see even a single ding or dent, they try to use that mark as a negotiation point to force you to lower the price.
– Surface marks sometimes make insurers believe that they’re dealing with a high-risk driver who doesn’t take care of their vehicle, which can result in higher insurance premiums.
– Lastly, most dings and dents eventually weaken sealant and paint to the point that both crack. Not only do cracks make a car look worthless, but moisture seeping into them causes corrosion that further reduces a vehicle’s value.
