How Do You Know When to Visit a Collision Center?

There are several different types of damages that can happen to your car. You don’t necessarily need to be in a collision to take your car to a body shop. Most people will likely have to take their car to get fixed at some point in their life. But how do you know when you need to take your vehicle to a collision center?

Your car has cracked or broken glass.

Whether your windows are broken, scratched, cracked, or chipped, you should consider taking it to a body shop. Sometimes it can be easily fixed. Other times, you may need a whole new window or windshield.

You have dents in your car.

Most body shops offer Paintless Dent Repair (PDR). It is a faster, more cost-effective way to remove dents from your car. If the dent is too large for PDR, the technician will have to do a traditional repair.

Your car’s body frame has been damaged.

If you’re in an accident, even a minor one, your vehicle could have frame damage. A warped or weakened body frame could put you or your passengers at risk when driving around. It could also cause additional wear and tear on your ride – tires, steering, or more.

Your car has paint damage.

Although paint damage can seem purely like a cosmetic reason to visit a body shop, scratches or chips could leave your vehicle open to further damage and corrosion around the damaged area. You don’t need to have paint damage on your car, you could just want a fresh coat of paint to make your car look good.

You were in a major collision.

A major collision causes serious damage to any car. This could be a failed engine, a cracked or shattered windshield, broken panels, and so on. If this is the case, you can contact us for a tow-in.
