Car Vandal Scratch Repairs

Man's hand scratching a car with a key.

It is so frustrating to return to your car and find a vandal or key scratch. Occurring across the nation on a daily basis, and costing the public millions each year, vandal scratches are seemingly on the increase.

Vandal scratches are hugely unfortunate, as they not only affect the overall appearance of your vehicle but will also impact the resale value. If left untreated, these car vandal scratches may lead to further damage caused by rust complications or exposure to the elements. This means that, the longer a vandal scratch is left before it is repaired, the more expensive it will almost certainly be to remove.

To help you get your car back to normal, we have developed a vandal scratch removal process to fix the damage and repair the paint around the scratch. Our process has been designed to make removing vandal scratches as painless as possible, and it can be completed at your convenience.

The ChipsAway Vandal Scratch repair process eliminates the need for expensive bodyshops and insurance premiums, because it uses SMART Repair techniques. Our SMART Repair techniques allow for us to quickly and efficiently remove car scratches and vandal damage with ease, creating a flawless finish. If your car has been scratched by a vandal you probably feel stress from the unfortunate situation. Let us take the stress out of the repair.


SMART Car Vandal Scratch Repairs from ChipsAway

SMART (Small to Medium Area Repair Technology) is a technique for repairing small areas of car bodywork damage, such as vandal scratches, and keyed car panels. SMART repair uses specialist paints, materials and tools to blend the repair into the surrounding panel, making it a much quicker and cost-effective process than a traditional body shop repair.

There are a few benefits to our SMART car scratch repair when it comes to vandal damage. The SMART repair method allows us to focus our repair on a small area, rather than having to get an entire panel repaired. This usually means that the SMART repair method not only provides an incredibly high level of repair, but it also keeps costs low.

Due to the nature of SMART Repairs, being incredibly focused and localised, they can be completed faster than a typical bodyshop would be able to do the repair.

For added convenience, ChipsAway can remove vandal scratches such as keyed car panels, at a time and place to suit you, with over 200 specialists across the country. Our national experts will complete the vandal scratch repair to an extremely high standard within just a matter of hours.
