Leaving a vehicle accident without receiving or causing any physical injury is a fortunate occurrence. Whether you were to blame for the accident or not, these accidents, even fender benders, can cause your vehicle to have issues for the duration of its life, even if the damage is not immediately apparent. It can be easier when the damage is minimal, or seemingly non-existent, to simply not exchange information or file a claim with your auto insurance. This not only saves you time, but also money. Unfortunately, ignoring a collision can degrade the efficiency and value of your vehicle. If you are in the unfortunate situation of a minor collision, it is better to err on the side of caution. Therefore, it is much better to bring your car into Anderson Auto Body & Paint’s collision repair shop soon after the collision occurs. 

  1. Keep your car in tip top shape. When you get into a minor accident, you may come to the conclusion that while the dent in the side of your vehicle isn’t particularly aesthetically-pleasing, it doesn’t impact the way it drives. A dent in a car will rust over time, and potentially cause unseen internal damage. For comparison, an untreated splinter in your finger can potentially lead to major infection. If you live in a part of the country that experiences all four seasons, you need to be extra cautious of minor dents to your vehicle. It never hurts to ask a professional.

  2. Keeps your car looking nice. Keeping your car looking nice is not a priority for all vehicle owners. Letting small dents and damages go unchecked for long periods of time before getting remedied could not only lead to major issues in the future, but will turn your vehicle into an eyesore. Most people care about how their car looks and if you want your car looking top notch, make sure any damages big or small scratches are taken care of quickly.

  3. Keep your resale value high. If you have ever been through the process of buying a vehicle, you were likely particular about which car to purchase. Vehicles that have even the smallest of dents or chipped paint can depreciate their resale value. The easiest way to be certain that you get the most money out of your vehicle when it’s time to sell is to fix all dents and even minor chips, making your car look brand new.
