How much does paint correction cost on a car?

Congrats on your new-to-you used car! A paint correction is an easy way to make your used car seem brand-new, but the cost can add up. Paint corrections can cost anywhere from $500 to $2500. Here are some factors that can affect the price:
- The age of the car
- The number of scratches there are
- The distance from you to the shop
- The proficiency of the technician
Some people opt to ship their cars all over the US to have them serviced by special technicians. However, chances are there’s a shop near you that can help remove the micro-scratches for a potentially better price.
