Your Top 4 Collision Repair FAQ Answered

Should I drive my car after it has sustained body damage?

For your safety and the vehicle’s operation, have the car or truck towed to a collision repair shop. You can choose one or ask your auto insurance provider for a recommendation. The towing costs will likely be covered through insurance. Keep in mind that if you decide to continue driving the vehicle after an accident, any additional damages may not be covered by your car insurance carrier.

What if more work is needed after my insurance provider approves an estimate?

Do I still need collision repair services if the damage was minor?

On the surface, the body damage on your vehicle may appear minor. However, lurking beneath could be broken or missing components. Continuing to drive without getting professional repairs done could cause further damage to your car or truck. Most importantly, unresolved fixes may impact the safety of you and others on the road.

While my vehicle is being repaired, will a rental car be available?

It depends on your auto insurance coverage. Check your policy to see if you’re entitled to having a rental car. If you don’t have this particular feature, some collision repair shops will provide you with a loaner vehicle or a rental option.
