The term ‘fender-bender’ is a loose term referring to a minor accident that happens to the front or rear of your car. Hard metal fenders are located at each end of your vehicle to minimize impact when your vehicle collides with another car. Therefore, if the impact is minimal, we should only have to repair the fender and immediate area when you bring your car to our service center. The damage on the car should not keep the car from being operational in most situations. We do, however, suggest that you call us to tow your car to the shop to prevent any further damage from happening. Our towing service is available 24/7.
