How to Get Your Car Accident Damages Repaired Fast

If you spend enough time behind the wheel of a car, chances are you’re eventually going to get into an accident. In fact, the average American driver is in an accident about once every 18 years.

Accidents can be scary for a number of reasons. You can get hurt and even killed in one. You can also be forced to seek repairs on accident damages afterwards.

If you need collision repair after an accident, you should act quickly. The quicker you act, the less likely your vehicle will end up in the shop for weeks or months afterwards.

Here are our tips to get your car fixed after an accident.

Contact the Police

The first thing you should do after getting into an auto accident is call the local police and tell them about it. They will send a police officer down to the scene to figure out what happened.

As a lawyer will tell you, when speaking with the other drivers involved in a crash and the police, don’t assume liability for the accident. Simply tell the police what you remember and exchange insurance information with your fellow drivers before you and your vehicle leave the scene.

Reach Out to Your Auto Insurance Company

While you’re waiting for police to arrive at the accident scene, you should get in touch with your auto insurance company. They will let you know what you need to do next to get your car repaired. They can also arrange to have your car towed to one of their approved facilities in the area.

Your insurance policy may or may not cover a tow truck. You should speak with your auto insurance provider about what’s covered under your plan.

Take Your Car to an Auto Body Shop for an Estimate

Once the accident scene has cleared, you should get your car to an auto body shop approved by your insurance right away. Whether that means having it towed or driving it yourself, there is no time to waste.

The sooner you get your vehicle to an auto body shop, the sooner you will receive an accident estimate on how much it will cost to fix your vehicle.

Your insurance company will usually work directly with the auto body shop to determine how much damage was done and what auto accident repairs need to be made. There may be some back and forth between your insurance company and the auto body shop. This is why it’s important to get your car to the shop as quickly as you can from the beginning.

Have Repairs Made

After your insurance company and auto body shop have ironed out the details, repairs on your vehicle can begin.

There are several things that can delay the repair process. In some cases, an auto body shop will need to wait for parts to be delivered. In others, your insurance company might drag their feet on approving certain repairs.

You should maintain contact with both your insurance company and the auto body shop throughout the process. By staying on top of both sides, you can get your vehicle repaired and get back out on the road in no time.

Get Accident Damages Repaired Quickly

If you’re like most people, when you send your car into the repair shop, you want to have all of your problems fixed the right way. You also want to get your car back as soon as possible. That’s where we come in.

24 Hour Towing is Your Safest Bet

With a higher speed limit on many of Wisconsin’s highways, distracted drivers more concerned with texting than driving, and more cars on the road than ever, it’s important to respect the danger that exists with every moment you spend in traffic. In the unfortunate event of an accident or breakdown, you can’t risk leaving your vehicle to examine the damage, or spending any more time on the side of the road than absolutely necessary. In the Muskego area, your best bet is the quality 24 Hour Towing service from Morgan’s Collision Center.

Our service is available and ready for your call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our courteous tow truck operators hold your safety and security in the highest regard and will work hard to ensure they are on the scene as soon as possible. Getting you and your car to a safe location is our primary concern. Our highly-trained tow truck drivers are well experienced and able to act fast to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones.

At Morgan’s, we know accidents don’t keep normal business hours, and they frequently occur in the dead of night or the early morning hours. These types of situations may put you in even more danger, as extremely tired or possibly intoxicated drivers may be passing your stranded vehicle. Low visibility conditions can contribute to even alert and sober drivers misinterpreting the road ahead and accidentally swerving toward you and your vehicle.

Perhaps you’re alone, or perhaps you have your children in the vehicle with you. One of the worst decisions you can make is to exit your vehicle and try to see if you can get it operational again so you can make it to a service center. With one quick call, you can have a trained, competent Morgan’s Collision Center tow truck operator on his way to pick you up and get you and your loved ones out of harm’s way. Don’t take chances when it comes to highway safety. Put your trust in us, and call Morgan’s today.

Paintless Dent Removal: How it Works

Your vehicle is important to you. What you drive says a lot about you and the image you want to portray. That’s why you take care of your ride by keeping it clean, driving with care, and parking it a safe distance from other vehicles to avoid dents and dings. Even with all this effort, you may still someday find a small dent on your vehicle. Don’t despair, though, because you’ve got the best source for Paintless Dent Removal in Muskego just a short drive away: Morgan’s Collision Center.

Like an unsightly battle scar, a dent on your vehicle can mar your car’s otherwise beautiful finish. Regardless of how much you may try to ignore its presence, it’s there – a constant reminder of an accident you’d prefer to forget. Every time you park your car and see the dent, your stomach starts to sink as you think about how much work it would be to have it repaired. Sound familiar? If so, you’ll be thrilled to know removing a dent is much easier than you’ve probably ever thought possible.

Morgan’s Collision Center is an expert in the art of paintless dent repair (PDR). We’ve honed our skills in this specialized technique over the years and have become your best bet for getting rid of that unsightly ding or dent quickly and without filling, sanding and repainting.

Paintless dent repair exploits a property of sheet metal known as shape memory. Once a body panel is manufactured by stamping in a massive tool at the factory, that metal is “programmed” into that specific shape. The metal wants to retain that shape, and will fight any minor deformations and attempt to return to the unaltered shape. This property serves us well in auto body work, since small dents can frequently be popped back into shape with nearly no evidence that a dent ever existed.

An assortment of tools may be used to accomplish this, depending on where the dent or ding is located on the vehicle. If it’s in a place where it can be accessed from the inside of the body panel, a long, angled dent repair tool can often push it back into place from the inside. If not, a pull tool may be used. These tools make use of powerful suction cups to attach to the panel at the dent and force it to pop back into its rightful shape.

This is not a beginner or DIY activity, and requires a skilled hand with years of experience to do correctly. If the sheet metal isn’t creased, and the metal and paint haven’t stretched, a dent repaired with paintless dent removal will not be noticeable at all – it will look as if it was never there.
