Some people think that all auto body shops are the same, which is why they allow tow truck drivers or their insurance company to choose the body shop to fix their car’s collision damage. But like any other industry, some shops are better than others.
When you take the time to think about it, you will realize that repairing your car’s collision damage is not something that you should take lightly. Why? Because your car is responsible for transporting you, your family and friends from one place to another. If that vehicle isn’t fixed properly, the next accident you have could seriously injure your passengers or even kill them.
Repairing collision damage properly is more than banging out a few dents, and putting a new coat of paint on the car. It takes trained and skilled technicians to assess whether the accident created weak points in the frame that will collapse under another impact.
Consider this, you drive on roads at speeds in excess of 25 mph. You share those roads with large vehicles such as tractor trailers and box trucks. Those vehicles can cause tremendous damage if they collide with a smaller vehicle even if that vehicle is brand new. What happens if that smaller vehicle experienced a prior accident and the repair left weak points in the frame? That frame could collapse like an accordion injuring or killing the passengers within.
No one plans to have an accident – they just happen. Nowadays, due to drivers being distracted, accidents seem to occur more often. We have all seen cars on the side of the road crushed beyond recognition. When we see them, we are usually thankful that it didn’t happen to us, and we usually say a silent prayer hoping that no one was killed.
No matter how cautious you are while driving, accidents can happen due to the actions of other drivers. To be sure that your car is safe to drive after collision damage is repaired, you should have those repairs done by a trained and experienced auto body technician.
