CHICAGO - Jan. 24, 2023 - PRLog -- As a vehicle owner, there is always a risk of damage – whether that be from an accident or a hailstorm, cars are not impervious to damage. When a vehicle owner notices damage to their vehicle, it is important to follow through on repairs, even if the damage appears to be minimal and only cosmetic.

The experts at Performance Auto Body shared some common mistakes that they have seen throughout their decades of experience as an auto repair shop.

When damage occurs, one of the biggest mistakes they said that vehicle owners make time and time again is not fully assessing the damage. Many people see a small dent from a recent storm and assume that they will remember to look at it later or decide in the moment that it was minor and doesn't require repair.

However, ignoring the damage and not performing a full assessment can lead to missed damage that will only worsen as time goes on. If any damage is sustained, Performance Auto Body recommends that vehicle owners take it seriously from the start to prevent further damages from occurring.

Other common mistakes that they see regularly include not seeking expert repair and not seeking repairs quickly. Many vehicle owners try to take a DIY approach or take their vehicles to a friend who may not have the necessary experience to fully repair the damage. While many may be tempted to take this route as they perceive it as cheaper, often this will lead to more expensive repairs down the line.

In addition to that, waiting to seek expert repairs can often extend the timeline drastically. Many certified auto body shops have a significant wait, meaning the longer it takes you to call, the longer you will have to wait to schedule an appointment or repairs.

Finally, the experts at Performance Auto Body warn vehicle owners against deciding not to report the damage. Some vehicle owners decide to avoid risking increases in insurance by paying out of pocket for repairs. This is not recommended as there may be damages that the vehicle owner is unable to assess on their own that could be more costly without insurance.
