First and foremost, make sure everyone is safe and healthy. Take care of yourself first. Exchange any insurance information at the accident scene and file a police report to determine fault if necessary.
Next, contact your insurance company to make a claim. Most carriers will let you make a claim online or on their app. Then, contact Trimbach’s Body Shop. We’re OEM-certified and perform factory certified repairs. We have great online reviews and we stand behind our work.
If necessary, AAA, other road clubs, and some insurance companies offer roadside assistance and tows. If you have none of those services, you’ll need to hire a towing company to bring your car to our shop. Call us first. We can help with your tow.
For minor accidents and fender benders, either submit photos to our website and get an online quote or schedule an appointment to bring your vehicle in for an in-person estimate. For any accident, be aware that most claims have a statute of limitations that state your timeframe for repairs exactly before the claim is no longer valid. Know that deadline.
You’ll need some alternative transportation while your car is in the shop. We can help you arrange a rental car, which may be covered by your insurance as well. Then, we’ll work closely with your insurance company to make sure the repairs are done on-time and up to everyone’s standards. When our repairs are done, we’ll walk you through the repairs and make sure you approve before you get back on the road again.
