Austin’s best body shop is here to help if you’ve been in an accident!

What to do if you have been in an accident!

  • Stop your vehicle right away.
  • Take a photo or jot down the license plate number of the other vehicle.
  • If anyone is hurt or you feel any pain, do not hesitate to call 911.
  • Make sure to show your driver’s license and insurance to the other driver and to any police officer on the scene.
  • Report the incident to the DMV right away.
  • Write down a full, detailed description of the accident right away. Doing this will keep the accident details clear in your mind. Most insurance agencies now have mobile apps that will help to log vehicle accident.
  • Notify your insurance company, even if it is a minor accident. Settling the claim yourself is dangerous as you never know what can fall back on you later.
  • Make sure you review the “appraisal clause” in your insurance policy. With some cases, depending on the extent of damage and coverage you have, the insurance company and the body shop might not fully agree on what the repairs should cost. We would notify you right away if this were to occur as that would mean you would pay out of pocket for the difference, but we work diligently with the insurance to avoid this as best as possible.

How to find the best collision repair shop in the Austin area

There are many key points to consider when choosing a collision repair shop. Estimates can vary greatly from shop to shop. So how do you know the difference and what cost is the right one for the job? Here are some suggestions of things to consider when choosing
a collision repair shop.

Getting More Than One Estimate is OK
The best way to avoid shops charging you more than they should is to take your car to several different shops for repair quotes. Central Texas Collision Repair will review any estimates you’ve received from other shops and match them if we can.

At the same time, you shouldn’t just take the cheapest estimate. Sure you could find a shop that would do it for really cheap, but that’s most likely because there is something they are NOT doing. You don’t want more problems down the road. Read more ›
