All too often, people get in a minor collision and then don’t do anything about fixing the resulting damage. As long as your car still runs, what’s the big deal? The problem is the unseen issues that you might not be aware of. Your car has a lot of moving parts and it’s worth letting an auto body specialist have a look after you get in a wreck of any size.
When you get hit, there are a handful of things to have inspected beyond just the dents and scratches. These include:
- Door frames
- Wheel wells
Any number of parts that weren’t at the point of impact can still be afflicted, and you might not know it unless you have the body worked on. Where you only see a tiny dent, a specialist might see an alignment issue that can cause bigger problems down the line.
In addition to finding flaws you didn’t know were there, repairing the cosmetic issues associated with a collision will up the value of your car and likely make you more cautious when you take it out on the road.
A scratch is just a scratch, until it’s more than that. To learn more about auto body repair and how it can help your car, call Jim’s Auto Body in Concord today at 925-689-6117.
