Covington Auto Body Shop Shares 3 Tips for the Collision Repair Process, Covington, Kentucky

No one expects to get into a car accident when they go out on the road, but knowing what to do after a collision can make the situation less stressful. When it feels like everything is happening quickly, it’s comforting to remember there’s a team of experts who can help you recover. Crone’s Auto Body has spent decades helping Covington, KY, area drivers get back on the road following an accident, offering a wide range of collision repair services. 

Some of these services include damage assessments, dent repairs, and frame straightening. This affordable auto body shop is now in its third generation of family ownership and operation, and the staff believes in being as loyal to their customers as customers are to the shop. This means you can count on high-quality service performed by well-trained repair technicians, all for a fair price.

Use the following three tips as a guide to help you in the event of an accident:

  • collision repairExchange Information: If the accident involved another driver, exchange contact information, including names, phone numbers, street addresses, and email addresses. Also, exchange important information about your vehicles such as the make and model, production year, and your license plate number. Finally, remember to exchange the names of your respective insurance carriers and policy numbers. If a police officer is on the scene, collect the officer’s name, badge number, and department phone number. You may also want to get the police report number at the scene since it can take a few days for a written accident report to be filed and processed.
  • Take Pictures: Photograph the accident scene from as many angles as possible to document the damage. You may also want to photograph any nearby signs or landmarks, identifying the location of the accident scene and the other people involved in the accident.
  • File Your Insurance Claim: Contact your insurance carrier immediately. Insurance carriers typically begin processing claims within 24 hours of filing; you may have to meet with a claims adjuster to review the damage your vehicle has sustained. Although many insurance carriers have preferred body shops, it’s important to remember you have the right to choose your own facility for collision repair. Crone’s Auto Body will work with your claims adjuster to ensure the most accurate damage assessment.

In addition to repairing the damage to your vehicle, Crone’s Auto Body offers painting services, which will make your car look as good as new. A shiny new paint job may provide the boost you need to drive with confidence again. You can learn more about Covington’s collision repair experts by visiting Crone’s Auto Body online or calling (859) 356-1800.
