Small scratches, scuffs and dents are not only unsightly, but have a negative effect on the value of your car. In the past, cars in need of cosmetic repair would have been sent to a conventional body shop, meaning that you would be without your car while the repair took place and potentially the cost of a large bill.
Thankfully many small scratches, scuffs and dents can be fixed using SMART repair technology.
What is SMART Repair?
The SMART Repair concept was originally created to offer the motor industry a fast, cost-effective solution to assist in the cosmetic repair of used vehicles. SMART Repair Insurance now lets you take advantage of this new solution to ensure your vehicle looks as good as new by repairing those minor little bumps and scratches as they happen.
What’s more, SMART Repair Insurance will pick these costs up for a full 3 years!
