The Common Causes of Vehicle Damage

NEXUS Vehicle Rental THE COMMON CAUSES OF VEHICLE DAMAGE A vehicle that is used on a regular basis will inevitably become damaged at some point. According to the Association of British Insurers, vehicle damage costs have increased by 32% over the past three years. Vehicle damage can come in the form of anything from relatively minor scrapes and bumps to the bodywork, to more serious problems with the engine and internal components. Here we take a look at some of the most common causes of vehicle damage. STONES AND DEBRIS Loose material on roads can become airborne by other vehicles driving over it. On roads with high speed limits, stones and debris can become miniature missiles that will cause potential scratches and dents to a vehicle's bodywork, or even chip its window-screen. POTHOLES Potholed roads are something all too common for many drivers. Bad weather conditions, particularly during winter months, can cause potholes to develop, creating potential damage traps for vehicles. Recently the AA reported that pothole damage is costing insurers almost £1m a month in repairs. ROAD ACCIDENTS Collisions with static objects as well as other vehicles can cause damage ranging from minor dents and scrapes to complete write-offs. Fortunately, most incidents this scale, but the damage caused can still be costly to repair. In 2017 there were 24,831 road traffic accidents reported to the police. on the minor end of SEVERE WEATHER One of the most common causes of damage from bad weather is caused by trees that have been blown over by strong winds. Flooding can also be an issue when particularly high levels of rainfall occur. If the water level rises high enough, it can enter the vehicle and cause damage to its interior. VANDALISM Sadly, vehicles are sometimes targeted with various forms of criminal damage. This can be in the form of graffiti, scrapes and dents or broken windows and headlights.
