Another year has come and gone. It’s time once again to set new goals and resolutions for 2018. What made it on your list this year? With so many possible new year resolution ideas, we suggest adding to that long list something very dear to our hearts – vehicular collision repairs.
After an accident involving your car, whether the fault was yours or another motorist’s, it’s tempting to skip out on repairs, especially if you feel the damage to be minimal or you’re just plain short on money. This, of course, is a terrible idea, one which you could eventually regret in the future. Here are the top five reasons why you should not delay on those repairs this year:
Any vehicular damage, whether minor or extreme, has the potential to create more damage for your car if left unattended. A small chip or fracture on your windshield, even if it’s barely noticeable, will eventually spread and cause more breaks through time. Structural damage could also lead to further damages to your car’s internal machinery and wiring. What may seem minimal on the outside could actually be hiding problems with your steering, brakes, engine, exhaust, etc. Locating the problem is the first step we need to address. The trained eyes of King Brothers Collision’s mechanical technicians can help spot for those tricky nuances which you might have easily missed.
If left unchecked, the damage from a collision could degrade the integrity of your car’s frame, possibly affecting its ability to protect you and your passengers. Safety features such as airbags and brakes may have been affected by an accident, malfunctioning when you might need them the most. A broken head and tail lights can catch other motorists by surprise, resulting in another accident. Never compromise when you or your loved ones lives are at stake. Have your vehicle inspected and repaired immediately to ensure your safety on the road.
A car’s value may never return to its original worth, especially after an accident, but you can still salvage a few thousand bucks in resale if you nip it in the bud. As we’ve already mentioned, minor damage could lead to more damage. Spending on repairs can prove to be a worthy investment in the long run, especially if you keep your vehicle well-maintained and avoid any future accidents. Nobody wants to buy a beat-up and malfunctioning gas-guzzler. Prolonging repairs will only make it worse for you and will significantly decrease your car’s potential resale value to buyers.
Most insurance companies require you to have your vehicle repaired as soon as your claim is approved. Do not spend the money you receive on anything else besides repairs as insurance companies can opt not to cover any more claims you may have in the future. Most insurance companies have their own approved auto shops to do cost estimations and repairs. Check with their listings to see if King Brothers Collision comes up and we will happily provide you with the best services available.
Periodic inspections vary depending on which state you live in, but we should always be vigilant in abiding with the law as they are there for everyone’s sake. Common causes for inspection failures include simple things such as missing or damaged mirrors and horns, non-operational signal, head, and tail lights, and cracked or damaged windshields and rear windows to name a few. You can save a pretty penny and avoid penalties and tickets by having these remedied at once at King Brothers Collision.
When it comes to vehicular collisions, it is of the upmost importance to have your damages assessed and repaired as soon as possible to avoid further problems in the future. Make it a habit for yourself this year to ritually inspect your car to make sure everything is running in tip-top shape. King Brothers Collisions can help you with all your vehicular needs ranging from damage cost estimation, to parts repair or replacement, and everything else in between.
