Event: Yesterday evening I was parked at a public multi storey carpark white lot and went for dinner at the near-by hawker centre. When I returned after 3h, a few scratches were found on the passenger side door and the left back door too. It was not like those incur by car accidently scrape pass my car but like dilibrately scratch with sharp object (eg keys). These scratches were about 30cm long across the door and my heart was aching when I saw them. Of course I don't think I have offerended anyone by parking there and within my own lot. Or I have any outstanding loanshark debt. Why me???
Questions: Should I or do I need to make any police report? I know it won't help my heartache but if I am not the isolated case, they might step up patrol and maybe prevent others from the same fate or maybe catch the culprit?
What can be done to cover up the scratches other than repainting the whole car/doors? It could get very expensive to do that.
Does insurance cover that? Must go back to check policy.
