If you are the victim of car keying crime it is unwise to use your insurance policy to fix the repair, it will cost you more in the long run due to increases in premiums and excesses. As annoying as it is you should bite the bullet and pay for the repair yourself. A mobile repair specialist is fast, reliable and high quality and will save you more money and time than using a repair centre.
One of the worst things that can happen to your car is it gets scratched, it’s bad enough when you do it yourself by accident because you have driven too close to some over-hanging bushes but when somebody else scratches your car especially when they do it deliberately the feeling we get is absolutely gut wrenching.
Until car manufacturers come up with a way to paint their cars with scratch proof paint, car keying is here to stay. According to a recent survey 57% of Britons have admitted to scratching the car of somebody they know and that’s just the number of people that have admitted it. The survey also found that 70% admitted to scratching the car of somebody they don’t know and 16% admitted scratching a car merely because they didn’t like the look of the person who was driving it.
Other reasons given for keying cars were, “the driver was a show off”, “the driver cut me up on the road or annoyed me some other way” and outright envy and jealousy.
So what can you do to prevent this happening to your precious vehicle?
Well sadly there is no guaranteed way to stop this happening but you can take precautions. You should always try to park in a sensible area, although the results of the survey showed that teenagers were not the only culprits, avoiding parking where gangs of youths hang out is always wise, that includes outside schools and colleges. You should always try to park in a well-lit area of a street or road and you should always try to park near other vehicles, don’t leave your car in an isolated location.
But even if you take these precautions you can still get your car keyed, it happens to us all at one time or another. Well if this does happen you can take your car to a professional car body repair specialist or better still have a mobile car body repair specialist come to you to repair the damage, mobile car body repair specialists are often 50% cheaper than repair centres.
