Minor Accident Repairs That Garages Offer

Not all car accidents lead to a write off. In some cases, the damage is relatively minor and the car can still be used. However, it’s a good idea to ensure that your vehicle is safe. We’ve put together a couple of minor accident repairs we think you should get before taking your car back on the road.

What You Should Do After A Car Accident

No matter whether the accident was significant or minor, you should always stop the vehicle in a safe place as soon as possible. It is illegal to drive away from an accident without stopping. If others are involved, check that they are alright first. Seek medical attention immediately if someone is badly injured.

Insurance details will need to be exchanged, even if the collision was with someone’s property instead of their car.

Get A Service

If your car seems alright after a minor bump, you can’t guarantee it without a professional inspection. Your MOT might be a few months away. In that case, the best thing to do is to seek a service. During a car service, a mechanic will inspect the components to ensure everything is running smoothly and safely.

Choosing A Local Garage

Check Wheel Alignment

Minor bumps and scrapes can be enough to knock your car’s wheels out of alignment. It’s better to have this seen to sooner rather than later, as poorly aligned wheels can affect your car’s efficiency and grip on the road.

Check The Lights

If the accident involved some type of collision, it’s worth checking that all the lights are still in order. The glass could have become compromised or a connection may have become loose, causing the lights to fail. Enlist the help of a friend to check if your brake and reverse lights are also working properly.

Bodywork Repairs

Accidents inevitably lead to scratches and dents in your car’s paintwork. Although this is cosmetic damage, it can decrease the value of your car, as well as look unsightly. Bodywork repairs can lift out minor dents and restore your paintwork to its former glory.
