       Auto Insurance Claims Raise Premiums: Minor Auto Dent and Scratch Repair Options

       By Collision on Wheels International, LLC
       Dated: Sep 01, 2008

       In the US, the average car insurance deductible is between $200 and $500. The increase in insurance
       premium can cost hundreds of dollars annually.

       Considering these factors, consumers should determine whether the rise in insurance premium is worth
       making an insurance claim for small dents, scratches, and other damages. Often, using a local repair shop
       and paying the repair bill without making an insurance claim is cheaper and faster than going through the
       red tape and hoop jumping of the insurance claims process.

        Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is one common form of repair for minor dents. PDR is an acceptable form of
       repair in some cases. However, in many cases, PDR leaves the vehicle with visible damage or areas that
       will show visible damage during weathering and aging processes. There are several techniques for repairing
       dents without repainting, but these techniques only work in very optimal situations. When there is already
       paint damage or the dent has deep or sharp creases, painting is usually required. The flexibility of the paint
       and metal and the amount the metal stretched during the incident limit the success of PDR techniques. PDR
       is a method often used to prepare the vehicle for painting or as a cheap solution to dent reparation. Though
       it is slightly cheaper than more involved dent repair, it often leaves consumers unhappy when damages
       become visible several years after the repair.

        The limitations of PDR are obvious. Consumer-savvy motorists should consider using a company who
       paints all dent repairs to avoid future issues with the damaged area. Repairing the dent or scratch and then
       repainting the area eliminates the change of visible damage later in the vehicle’s lifetime. Painting the
       repair site also lessens the possibility of rusting along the dent lines.

        When determining the company to use for your small body repairs, consider the cost, convenience, and
       processing time of the company. Look for a shop that offers immediate service at competitive pricing.
       Make sure the repair shop you choose offers a warranty that guarantees the repair against future visible
       damages and paint flaking.
