To say auto body repair shops get a bad rap is an understatement. Unfortunately, far too many shops are more than willing to cheat you out of your hard-earned cash—if you don’t know what to watch for, that is. At Minnetonka Collision, we pride ourselves on our commitment to honest, transparent, high-quality auto body repair, and superior customer service. But not every shop takes pride in their work the way we do. If you’re on the hunt for a shop you can trust to handle your high-end vehicle, here are three non-negotiable traits to look for:
When a storm damages your vehicle, the resulting dents and breakage follow a pattern that is much different from that of a regular car accident. Often, the damage is concentrated on the upward-facing parts of the car, such as the roof, hood, and trunk lid. You may also have parts sheared right off the vehicle. The mirrors are some of the most susceptible, but your bumpers and header panels are also vulnerable.
As the weather continues to grow more unpredictable, heavy storms continue to be a common occurrence. Storms can bring damaging winds, hail, and torrential downpours. While you should always try to have your vehicle inside during a storm, we understand this is not always possible. Below, let's examine some possible ways your car can become damaged during a storm.
Wind, rain, and wild weather threaten your vehicle's finish every day. In extreme cases, violent weather can even break windows and mirrors and cause ugly dents on your exterior. Use these tips to reduce the effects of unstable weather patterns on your vehicle's exterior.
