It is nearly impossible to have a vehicle that doesn’t have a few scratches, dings or dents. You probably even remember that very first one. That one always seems to be the most annoying, but at the same time, it gives you the freedom to stop worrying about it. By the time you get ready to trade in your car, or surrender it at the end of a lease term, you probably have stopped even noticing each new blemish. That doesn’t mean the dealership or potential buyers out there won’t notice them, though. If you are going to a dealership, they will reduce what they will give you for the vehicle in a trade-in by the amount they factor in for dent repair. In a lease situation, you may be charged for dent repair and often at an inflated amount. In both cases, it is far better for you to take care of the dent repair before heading over to make the deal.
The main reason for this is the total impression that your vehicle will make. A buyer, even if it’s a dealership, may wonder if your lack of dent repair indicates a lack of maintenance performed, as well. It just gives a bad stigma to your vehicle that you’d be best to avoid if you want to get top dollar for your car.
