3 Reasons for Needing Bodywork on your Car

car body repairs, Cars, General No Comments

Are you fed up with that dent on the front of your car because you sat on it? Did you accidentally scratch your car when you bumped past it? No matter what the problem is, there will always be a point where you will need to repair your car, whether that be to fix a dent or to install a new bumper.

Fixing and Removing Dents

Dents are caused by a multitude of things, from just leaning on the side door to bits of stones and debris hitting your car. ‘Smooth’ dents appear from applying a small amount of pressure to the bodywork of your car. ‘Creased’ dents appear from a sharp strike by an object like a stone.

If the dent is smooth, then it can be removed quickly and easily whereas if the dent is creased, a full panel replacement might be in order.

Fixing Scratches and Chips

Scratches are even more common than dents, because they can emerge from pretty much any interaction that your car may be involved in. They can be caused by small stones, scraping something against your car or something falling on your car. Some scratches can be more serious than others, but the majority of them can be covered up with just a lick of paint.

Chips are generally caused by stones from cars in front. If you have too many stone chips appearing at the front of your car, then it could be a sign that you are driving too close to the car in front!
