Scratch And Dent Insurance From Budget

Budget understands the horror you feel when you arrive at your car to find a scratch and dent etched into the shiny paintwork.

A dent that wasn’t there earlier can leave you in utter despair.

In these days of cramped parking lots as well as townhouse and apartment living, this happens daily.

Row upon row of narrow parking bays, children with nowhere else to play, and shopping trolleys left to their own devices make it almost impossible not to pick up a dent or scratch fairly regularly.
