How much does it cost to fix a deep car scratch?

I was leaving the gym the other day and I noticed a long, deep scratch in my driver’s side door. I don’t have any idea how it happened. There wasn’t any other damage to suggest a hit and run, so it seems like I’ll have to pay for it to be fixed myself. How much will it cost to fix a scratch in my car?

Answer
I’m sorry to hear this happened to you. The price to fix a deep scratch on your car will vary depending on the size and depth. However, you can expect to pay around $2,000 to fully repair a deep scratch.
If this was an act of vandalism, you should report it to the police and provide photos of the damage for the police report. Upon doing so, you may be able to get some help repairing the damage if your car insurance policy includes comprehensive coverage.
If you do not have comprehensive coverage, check out the Jerry app to shop for better coverage at a price within your budget. The Jerry app collects quotes from more than 50 top insurance companies, like Nationwide, Allstate, Safeco, Progressive, and Travelers, in seconds! They even help cancel your old policy once you’ve made your pick.
