Damaged skirt boards and scratches on door


Shane fixed a large scratch on my car door/rear left panel. I am so happy with the result and overall experience! He is a lovely guy who is attentive to detail, has amazing skills and replies quickly to messages. He hand sanded and filled gaps on my car with putty and obtained colour matched spray paint. I wish I could post before/after photos to this review. 10/10 would recommend

Top Car Scratch Repair related questions

Depending on the depth and severity of the scratch, there are many ways to fix a scratch on your car. It can be as simple as using a car scratch repair pen bought off the shelf at a hardware or auto detailing shop, but this is applicable for minor issues. If the scratch on your car looks more serious, call an expert repair service to assess and repair the damage. They can better determine the seriousness of the damage and what tools and methods to employ to best repair it.
This depends on the size, severity and number of scratches on the car. If the scratches are relatively minor and within close proximity of each other, the cost will surely be small. If scratches are large, in separate areas and irregularly shaped as in some acts of vandalism, the cost may be more than the usual due to the complexity of the problem. Whatever the cost of fixing deep or light scratches, they will always be a tiny fraction of having full body work or a full body repainting.

What do Car Scratch Repair services include?

Car scratch repair services include inspecting the scratch to determine the severity of the damage, determining what tools and materials to use, the cost of the work and the time needed to complete the task. To get the most out of your car scratch repair, note that car scratches are usually of two types: a light scratch that goes only as far as affecting the clear coat layer, or a deep scratch that reaches the paint or cuts into the bare metal

Repairing Light Scratches

Car scratch repair for light scratches can be quite simple and can be done in at most a couple of hours, depending on the severity of the scratch, and the time needed for the touch-up to dry. If the light scratch is small, using and applying a car scratch repair pen can be all that’s required to fix the problem. While that is an option, the usual manner by which Taskers could perform this service is by cleaning the problem spot, masking off unaffected areas close to the scratch, then applying a polishing compound with a microfiber cloth to polish off the scratch.

Repairing Deep Scratches

Deep scratches call for a more qualified service to fix. This type of scratch may have penetrated the base coat of your car’s paint job, or worse, reached and exposed the bare sheet metal of your car’s body. Don’t delay in having this kind of scratch repaired, as neglecting it can cause corrosion to set in and lead to larger, more expensive repairs to your car. Have a small batch of paint, such as a touch-up bottle of the exact same colour as your car is getting primed for these repairs.

When repairing deep scratches, Taskers will first do a thorough cleaning on the problem spot to remove any dirt, grease or oils. High-grit sandpaper will be used to sand off the paint on and around the scratch, but only until reaching the clear coat. If the scratch goes deeper, more sanding is done. After the sanding is completed, the area is rinsed with water and wiped dry with a non-abrasive microfibre cloth.

To prepare the area for repainting, your Tasker may mask off the unaffected areas close to the scratch. A thin layer of primer will be applied and left to dry. The scratch will likely be touched up by dabbing (not brushing) new paint on it with a toothpick or matchstick, then finally left to dry.

Fix dog chews and scratches on front door


Brunswick VIC, Australia

28th Oct 2023

We have just moved into a new apartment and our poor anxious greyhound has chewed and scratched both the left and right sides of the front door. This happened the last time we moved house two years ago and we had to get the wooden door re-patched and painted. As this is a much more modern apartment that had zero wear + tear on the door we are concerned and needing an incredible job done to help us return the door as best as possible to its original condition. This time around it seems like the door is incredibly sturdy and potentially steel and not wooden. It is heavy and solid. We are hoping a sanding job over the scratches and dents and a paint coat should solve this but would love some expertise. Paint will need to be colour matched and purchased. Happy to pay for this. Note: image of previous condition attached - Due date: Flexible

Came at last minute and was super helpful. Did an impeccable job and left the door in near to perfect condition. Would recommend!
