There’s a reason they call car accidents ‘wrecks’ – in the blink of an eye, everything you were planning to do with your day came to a screeching halt, and a whole new pile of stressful problems became part of your life.
In the moments immediately after a car accident happens, you’ll have to make several decisions. If your car can’t be driven from the scene of the accident (and if you have any doubt on this issue, don’t drive your car!) it will need to be towed.
At some point in this process, you will wind up on the phone with your insurance company. They’re going to give you instructions on what you need to do next, but ultimately, you’re going to have to make a choice about where you want your car towed. It is important to understand that this is ultimately your decision. Insurance companies have preferred provider relationships with some dealerships, but this does not obligate you to use them.
It’s a very good idea to choose a Bridgewater Auto Repair shop that’s certified to work on your particular kind of car. Expertise matters! For example, Total Care Accident Repair is certified to work on Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Fiat, Ram, Kia, Toyota, Subaru, Nissan, Hyundai and other types of vehicles.
When choosing an auto repair shop to work on your car after an accident it is really smart to pick one that can help you work through your car insurance claim. Car insurance companies are very particular about getting all of the paperwork exactly how they want it before they pay any claims. Working with a knowledgeable auto body shop can make this much easier, especially if it’s your first time dealing with insurance.
