Car Accidents and Collision Repairs Auckland
Being involved in a car accident can be a very stressful occurrence regardless of how minor or severe it is. You worry about your safety, the impact of other people or property involved, the cost of collision repairs, the impact on your driving record, time off work that you might need, time without your vehicle as a result. It can be a long list.
Our aim at Mt Roskill Collision is to help alleviate a lot of this stress and worry. This is by getting you and your vehicle back on the road as quickly and as safely as possible.
It’s a good idea to look at some common types of car accidents and collision repairs to understand the extent of the damage better. Also, how soon we can get you and your vehicle back on the road safely after an accident or collision.
Common types of car accidents
With more and more vehicles on the roads in Auckland, not a day goes by without seeing a car accident occur. These often include:
- fender bender – usually in peak hour traffic when there are lots of cars backed up on the roads and motorways
- rear ending – crashing into the back of another car, not braking in time
- sideswipe – as the name suggests, swiping the side of another car, wall, post, etc
Any of these can result in the need for collision repairs, such as:
- scratch repair
- paint repair
- dent repair
- bumper repair
- mag wheel repair
- full repair after a major car accident
The reliable team at Mt Roskill Collision have the equipment, knowledge, skills and expertise to help with any of these types of repairs after a car accident or collision.
We specialise in all makes and models of cars – Honda, Toyota, Holden, Ford, Mercedes, BMW, Audi, VW, Kia, Hyundai, Suzuki, Nissan and Mazda. They all have one thing in common … they are designed to protect the occupants. After a crash, it may appear that your vehicle has sustained substantial damage. In reality, your vehicle has done what it was designed to do in protecting you in a collision.
Are there any types of collision repairs that Mt Roskill Collision can’t help with?
In short, no. We work with trusted collision repair partners for a range of services to ensure you don’t need to take your vehicle to multiple locations.
We team up with some of the best in the industry, from glaziers for glass replacement, signwriting, mechanics, auto electricians, ding repairs, locksmiths, paintless dent removals. So we can handle all aspects of the collision repair with no hassle for you.
Working with your insurance company
Once we receive your vehicle, we’ll do a full assessment of the damage to determine what repairs your vehicle needs. A member of our repair team will send photos with an estimate to your insurance company for approval to begin the work. We work in partnership with the major insurance companies in New Zealand. This means we can guide you through the process of making a claim. Helping to minimise any stress or worry for you.
Sometimes we will receive approval from your insurance company to repair your vehicle straight away if the panel and paintwork meet your policy criteria. If not, you can take your car home until the car repair is approved and book in a time.
If there is minor damage to your vehicle, we can give you a breakdown of different repair options and costs. It’s wise to look at your insurance policy deductible amount to determine whether it is worth making a claim or not.
If there is significant damage to your vehicle, we will thoroughly assess it and give our professional advice on what is and isn’t worth doing. Sometimes the insurance company will prefer to “write off” the car. We can provide all of the information they need to make that assessment.
