How Bumpertek can help to retain the value of your car

The value of your car is probably not something you think about on a day-to-day or week-to-week basis. As long as it gets you from point a to point b, you’re unlikely to be actively thinking about your car, least of all how much it’s worth.

Until you have to.

When you want to sell your car, suddenly the value of it will move very much in focus – and at that point, it can be harder, and more expensive, to rectify. Instead, it can be easier and more cost-effective to stay up to date on repairs and maintenance, which will keep your car looking and running well, and its value as high as it possibly can be.

Luckily, Bumpertek is here to help! If you live in Sydney and its surrounding area, there are a number of our mobile services which can help keep your car in tip-top shape.

So how can you best retain the value of your car?



Car paint scratch repairs

What is the most common and visible way to improve the look of your car? Addressing any scratches in your car’s paint. Car scratches don’t just impact the aesthetic appeal of your vehicle, it can oftentimes expose the paint and metal underneath, leaving your car susceptible to further damage.

While future problems may not matter if you’re looking to sell your car, it can impact your resale value. Many prospective owners will know the potential damage scratches can cause. Further, it suggests the vehicle hasn’t been looked after, which will limit your ability to get top dollar for your car.

The good news is that most scratches can be quickly and easily repaired using a professional mobile scratch repair service like Bumpertek. Addressing these issues is incredibly important if you’re thinking of trading in your car.




Bumper repairs

Another easily rectified but value deflating issue for your car are bumper dents. Similarly to car scratches, dented bumpers are indicative of further damage or condition issues, which can put off prospective buyers. Even more challenging, bumper issues can sometimes look like more work to repair which they are, which is why they can significantly impact the value of your car if you’re trying to sell it.

Why? Because bumper repairs can be serious in some instances. Your bumper is designed to absorb impact, and so a cracked or damaged bumper can lead to safety issues in cars. Beyond resale impacts, it’s important to address this damage to ensure your car is up to code.





Polish and buff

Think of the words you would use to describe your dream car – it’s likely to be descriptors like ‘shiny’, ‘sleek’ and ‘glossy’.

If this is what you’d like your new car to look like, it’s likely that your prospective buyers think the same too! Which is why the easiest – but most impactful – thing you can do to ensure your car reaches its top potential sale value is ensuring it’s been polished and buffed to perfection.

Of course, it’s important to ensure your car looks good before a prospective buyer sees it or before you trade it in. But keeping on top of maintenance by ensuring you’re regularly getting it polished and buff is an easier way to keep its value in check.
