With quality repairs, vehicle values shouldn't decline, but allowing a car to go without repairs after a collision is a sure way to devalue a vehicle reports DocsAutoBody.ca
Chilliwack, BC -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/09/2015 -- When selling a used car, the question often surfaces regarding if the vehicle has ever been wrecked before. Experts claim if the repair was completely and professionally performed and the car looks indistinguishable from one that was never damaged, the resale value should be largely unchanged. Additionally, consumers should make sure factory parts are used in the repair to make sure top dollar is received for a car in resale transactions. The problem consumers face, according to Jason Stobbe, spokesperson for Docs Autobody, is finding a reputable auto repair garage to complete the repairs.
States Stobbe, "So many car owners want to simply keep the insurance money and let the results from the collision stand; however, we can't stress enough how bad that is for a person's car or truck. Not only does it reduce the re-sell of the car, but it reduces the structural integrity of the vehicle. Rust forms on the point of contact, causing poor appearance, and the car typically will experience increased wind and road noise due to lack of boundary between the car and the outside world."
With this in mind, Stobbe states Docs Autobody (www.DocsAutoBody.ca) is now offering free estimates and guaranteed repairs for as long as the customer owns the car. States Stobbe, "We want to encourage everyone to seek an auto body shop for their car repairs, helping to retain the full car value as much as possible. Our state-of-the-art newly expanded facility offers secure vehicle storage, convenient courtesy vehicles, the unbeatable expertise of journeymen technicians, complimentary mini detailing and free estimates. There's no reason not to seek the repairs on your car after a collision ruins your perfect look."
"For collision repair like it never happened, turn to a body shop with experience and certification, so you'll have peace of mind with the results. Don't let a wreck ruin your car's value," concludes Stobbe.
