Four Important Things to Know About a Collision Center

August 22nd, 2021 by

After a car accident, you will need to repair your auto, but where do you take it? Depending on the damage, a collision center may be the best option. Collision centers can handle small damage, like dings from shopping carts, major auto collisions, and everything in between. But before you choose which collision center to use, you should know a few important things.


  1. What About Your Warranty and Insurance?


One of your very first questions should be whether your warranty or insurance will cover the repair. This is crucial as it gives you an idea of what to expect from a financial standpoint.


This is not an issue with University Toyota, as we accept all insurances. On top of that, we also work closely with your insurance provider to ensure that you get the highest-quality repair and your insurance or warranty covers it. We can even help you decide if you need to file a claim with your warranty or insurance company.


  1. What Are the Body Shop’s Qualifications?


You also want to pay close attention to the qualifications of your chosen body shop or collision center. Those without qualifications may do a poor job with the restoration or even leave your car in worse shape than it began.


Once again, University Toyota will put your mind at ease in this respect. We work on all makes and models and have highly trained technicians to give you peace of mind. In fact, each of our technicians has been factory-trained. To further put you at ease, consider that we use OEM parts. Additionally, the fact that we offer a warranty on our work shows our confidence in the quality of service we provide.


  1. Is It a Direct Repair Shop?


You also want to confirm that your chosen collision center is a direct repair shop. If you haven’t heard the term before, a direct repair shop means that it meets the requirements that your insurance company sets out. Insurance companies regularly check and monitor these shops.


Luckily for you, University Toyota is a direct repair shop for several major insurances. Even if we aren’t one for your insurance, this status should give you peace of mind that we meet high standards.


  1. What Type of Repairs Do They Do?


Finally, don’t forget to confirm the types of repair that your chosen collision center will do. Some only handle minor dings, while others focus on major issues. The most important thing to confirm is that they have experience handling the work you need.


As University Toyota is a full-service collision center, this isn’t a concern. We can handle minor issues as well as structural fixes and aluminum welding. We also have state-of-the-art paint booths.


Choose University Toyota’s Collision Center


When you first visit, our collision center will give you a computerized estimate. Or we will work with your insurance estimate. The bottom line is that you can always count on University Toyota in Morgantown, West Virginia, to work with you to get your car back into the shape it was before the accident and return your peace of mind behind the wheel.
