What Should You Know in Preparation for Collision Repair?, Covington, Kentucky

In the immediate aftermath of an auto accident, it can sometimes be hard to think clearly and make the best decisions to get the collision repair you need. As the team at Crone’s Auto Body in Covington, KY, notes, knowing what to do after a car crash goes a long way in helping you successfully resolve the situation.

The following factors can help you prepare for collision repair:

  • Know Your Insurance: Do you understand how your insurance policy works? Different policies cover different types of vehicle damage; even minor variables, like your deductible, can have a significant impact on your repair expenses — especially if you were responsible for the accident. Understanding what your policy covers and which collision repair shops your insurance company wants you to work with will help you be ready for anything.
  • collision repairInvestigate Auto Repair Shops: It’s helpful to have a collision repair shop you know you can trust, even if you haven’t been in an accident. Online reviews, referrals from friends and family, or official resources like the Better Business Bureau can help you know which ones offer quality repairs and trustworthy service. This way, you won’t find yourself stuck with subpar repair work.
  • Alternate Transportation: Depending on the severity of the accident, your vehicle might have to stay in the shop for a while, especially if the shop needs to order a rare part. Prepare for this potential setback. Can you get by using public transportation or would it be better to add rental car coverage to your insurance policy? Determining what you need before an accident takes place will help you save quite a bit of money.
