Common Collision Repair ServicesIf the unfortunate situation of being involved in an accident occurs, the only name you need to remember is Spotlight Automotive. Even the best drivers find themselves in need of an auto repair shop now and again. No one is likely to go through life without sustaining damage from an accident caused by a reckless driver. Sometimes repairs are necessitated by exposure to the elements – like storm damage – and no one is immune.
The most common repair services are:
- Front-end collision repair – A front-end collision typically involves damage to several parts including the grill, bumper, headlights, and often extensive damage under the hood as well. Front-end damage can be complicated by the need for mechanical repairs and should always be assessed by professional collision specialists as quickly as possible.
- Rear-end collision repair – A rear-end collision is often caused by something that is out of your control, like a distracted driver behind you, or someone stepping off the curb in front of your car – causing you to stop suddenly. Fortunately rear-end collisions don’t usually include mechanical damage, however, the necessary cosmetic repairs can be extensive.
- Dents – Whether they’re caused by careless drivers, falling tree limbs, or your neighbor’s kid hitting a line drive into your side panel, dents usually don’t affect the car’s performance. That being said, these unsightly dings can lower the value of your vehicle and allow rust to form as time goes by, extending the damage and making it more costly to repair
