Scratched vinyl planks

Well I just finished laying vinyl planks on my floor and then I notice a couple long scratches going across several planks. Don't know how they got there but it may have been a couple boards laying on the floor with nails in them. This is a real bummer because now I have to take up several planks to get to the ones that have scratches in them. I cannot believe that these planks are that easily scratched. I do not believe that regular laminate would scratch like that. Has anyone else had problems with vinyl planks easily scratched and chipped?

While I haven't put any in an RV - I just put down an Allure Vinyl plank floor down in my apartment and while I didn't have any that scratched one box had a dent in the side and piece of tongue was cracked and I dinged one while dragging a box across it while in the process of installation and it chipped off a small piece at the seam. There are click vinyl planks and a stick together vinyl planks. My was the stick together kind and once that glue sets it is almost impossible to pull apart. I had one that went in a slight angle and I noticed it after running the roller across the seam and then tried to pull it apart. It tore the vinyl before the glue seam would come apart. There are several videos that deal with repairing plank vinyl flooring particular the click together ones on YouTube.
