how bad is the scratch?

As I'd recommend having a go at polishing them out yourself as any scratch which isn't through the colour can usually be recovered without a respray.

I'd use some of Meguirs Scratch X which you can find in Halfords and is like T-cut but far far superior and will polish to a high shine without the associated swirling you get from T-cut.

If the scratches are very deep then use some very fine wet & dry sandpaper ( about 1200 to 1500 grit) with warm water and some washing up liquid in the water and then very lightly rub over the scratch with the paper.

This will 'dull' the paint but don't worry if you then apply the scratch X you can get back to a shine.

Alternatively you can use a mobile company ( who will do what I've described)
