When you make a claim on your car insurance policy, you’re obligated to pay insurance excess, which is essentially your contribution towards your vehicle’s repairs.

There are two main types of excess; compulsory and voluntary. As the name suggests, the compulsory excess is a set amount of money you have to pay if you make a claim and this is decided by your insurance provider when you set up your insurance policy. On the other hand, the voluntary excess is the amount of money you can choose to pay alongside the compulsory excess and people often increase this voluntary excess in order to reduce their insurance premium.

You might be thinking that it’s hard enough trying to afford the compulsory excess, never mind the voluntary one. However, what if there was a legal way to avoid paying your total excess? If you’re curious, click the link below to find out more information!

Finding dings and dents in your vehicle’s bodywork can be annoying, but what if there was a method in which you could remove these without damaging your paintwork? Well, there is and it’s called Paintless Dent Removal (PDR).

It is a cheaper and quicker way to repair those dents in your car, as it involves massaging the dent out of the panel using specialist tools, without causing any cracking in the paint. As a result, no re-painting will be needed!

Reaching the end of your lease agreement can be stressful, especially if you had a little too much fun with your lease car and it shows on the vehicle. Collecting a little wear and tear is expected, however, if you’ve collected some damage on your car body, you could be looking at quite a pricy invoice from your lease company for the repairs.

Now, if you leave these damages for your lease company to repair, some companies tend to charge you more than you need to pay, so how can you save some money? Check out our article for more information!

Does your vehicle consume fuel a little too fast? Well, you may be doing things that are causing this decreased fuel efficiency.

For example, do you store half of your home in your vehicle? Overloading your vehicle is one big cause of increased fuel consumption, as the engine has to use more fuel to accommodate the extra weight. So, maybe it’s time for a spring clean of your vehicle, to ensure only the essentials are stored in there!

Whether you’re bored with your current vehicle, or you want to upgrade, there may come a time when you’re ready to either privately sell or trade-in your car. When that time comes, whether it’s now or in a few years, there are ways to increase the resale value of your vehicle.

An example of a way to increase the value of your vehicle is to keep your car’s mileage down. A high mileage can cause your resale value to drop substantially, so by sacrificing those long journeys, the value of your vehicle will be maintained.

For many more ways to increase your vehicles trade-in or resale value, check out our article!

Getting a scratch on your paintwork is a common problem, but the question that decides whether or not you can fix it yourself is 'how deep is the scratch?'

There are a few types of scratches, one type being light, surface scratches. These are ones that usually only affect the clearcoat and the top layer of paint. Fortunately, they can be fixed by you, with the help of an abrasive product, such as T-Cut.

However, deeper scratches are a different story. For more information, check out our article and learn whether you can fix your scratch yourself or whether it’ll need to be taken care of by a professional.

Walking past your car and noticing a new scratch is one frustrating moment, but what if you could fix it yourself? Using a scratch remover kit is one way to restore your paintwork, but it all depends on how deep the scratch you’re wanting to repair is.

Light, surface scratches that only penetrate the clearcoat can be easily removed by using a moderately abrasive solution, such as T-Cut. However, the deeper the scratch cuts into the paint layers, the more difficult they become to fix. So before you begin to think about fixing these scratches, it’s essential to assess the depth of them, as ones that reveal the metal beneath the paint, will need to be repaired by a professional.

For more information, read our ‘How To’ guide on when you can & cannot use a scratch removal kit.

Being involved in a motoring accident can be a stressful situation, especially dealing with the aftermath. Whilst dealing with the actual shock of the accident, you need to be able to collect yourself in order to sort out the situation effectively.

For example, after ensuring the safety of the people involved and making sure there were no serious injuries, you need to remember to exchange motoring details with the other driver or drivers. This should not be delayed, as it is essential for when you inform your insurance company of the accident and for if you decide to put in a claim.

For more information on what to do after being in a car accident, learn more from our detailed guide, to prepare you in case you ever find yourself in this unfortunate situation.

A lot of people get confused about what car wax & car polish do and the difference between them both.

In simple terms, car polish is the product that clears up any scratches or marks by cutting and restoring your paintwork back to an even finish. Whereas, car wax is used after the polish, to provide a protective coating against everyday contaminants. If used correctly, this duo will leave your paintwork looking shiny and showroom worthy!

For a more detailed comparison, read our article and rid yourself of any confusion you may have over car waxes and car polishes!

A scratch here, a chip there… it’s never ending! Your car will always collect some type of cosmetic damage, as there are a number of everyday things that can commonly cause paintwork damage. Also, not only do these imperfections look unpleasant on your paintwork, but they also decrease your cars resale value!

It would be ideal if you could somehow avoid getting any type of damage on your car, but unfortunately, it’s inevitable. Bird droppings, for example, they’re pretty much impossible to evade. But being aware of what they can do your paintwork, will make you jump into action whenever you see your car has been a victim of them. The droppings don’t just look unappealing, but their acidic pH can corrode your wax coating and damage your paint. So instead of letting bird droppings sit and dry on your car until your next wash, you should wipe them down as soon as you spot them and thoroughly wash the affected area.

If you want to know more, read our guide on the causes of paint damage that you should avoid!
