There are many options when this happens. The first and cheapest is to do nothing. The major fear of the vehicle owner is that the chip will begin to rust and get worst.
Another problem with doing nothing, with that first dent or chip on your car. More will com, and you will continue to do nothing. With not dealing with these issues as they happen and letting them get worst over time, they will lead to accelerated deprecation of the vehicle. Before you know it there will be dents, chips and scratches everywhere.
There are many things that the repair shop needs to know in this simple repair. The chip needs to be sanded out with the correct sand paper that makes the right size scratches in the paint. The metal need to be treated correctly so that it does not start to rust from being exposed to the elements. An in proper repair would defeat the purpose of having it done. The last thing the consumer wants is for the repaired area to rust before the rest of the vehicle or for the paint to loss its shine. Many of these issues in the repair process start from the beginning of the repair process. While the finished product may look great, it is what is under it that matters.
When it finally comes to putting the paint on to that properly prepared surface, there are now a whole new group of issues to deal with.

Another, is will the painted area be more likely to chip or fade from the sun? There are many important questions that need to be addressed in this process.
