Suzuki Swift 2013: Should I use insurance to fix my car?

Asked by Jessica

I have some scratches and minor dents on the passenger side of my 2013 Suzuki Swift and scratches on the bonnet and back bumper and a large scrape from the curb on the driver’s side.

Is it worth making insurance claims, which will set me back approximately $1000 in excess to repair the damage before selling the car?

Talk to a car detailer to find out how much he would charge to do the repairs and tidy it up. If it’s under $1000 do it that way, otherwise you’re probably best to make a claim.
