What Is Considered a Fender Bender and What Do I Do If I'm in One?

Wondering What You Should Do In the Case of a Fender Bender?

These are minor car accidents that usually happen at a slow speed. Rarely do serious injuries occur in these types of accidents. Even though injuries may be rare and damage may seem minimal, it is important to keep in mind that there could be more serious damages that are unseen to the naked eye. 

The first thing to do immediately after a fender bender is to stay calm and to make sure you or any passengers are not injured. Look around and see if it is safe to stay where you are. If it is not safe and you can move your vehicle, do so for safety reasons.

Then get the other driver’s information and give the other driver yours. Never in this situation should you apologize, just ask the other driver if they are injured and then exchange information.

Next you should contact your insurance company. Give them all the details and everything they ask for. They will say they are going to send an adjuster out to size up the damage. The insurance company will send out someone to take pictures and perform a partial damage assessment, because full assessment normally requires some vehicle disassembly.

This is where we come in! Give us a call and we will be able to inspect and report on all of the internal damages that may have been overlooked initially. Ogden Body Shop has been doing this kind of thing for the last 20+ years.

At Ogden Body Shop we take the damaged area completely apart, because with today’s cars there may be damage deep inside that a visual inspection alone will not detect.

We repair the damage like new so no one will ever know there was any damage at all! 

The proper paint job takes a good eye and an expert painter to get the color exactly right because there are so many different variables to the painting process including humidity, air temperature, gun pressure, the distance of the spray and so much more.

At the end of the day you will be happy you chose Ogden Body Shop. for your repair needs. Don’t let a simple fender bender stop you from getting your vehicle repaired the right way.

The Ins and Outs of
Our Process

Ogden Body Shop advocates your claim with the insurance
company, ensuring you get the repair the you deserve.

Proudly Serving All of Waterbury, CT

The repair process is directly correlated to the success of the service at the end of the project. If a technician is not willing to put in the time to be thorough, the vehicle will be serviced quick but not safe or done to standard. This likely means you will soon need the vehicle serviced again, or will quickly realize you need to bring it to another shop. If the process takes too long, you will most likely get a vehicle that is safe, but that took up too much time waiting for. 

Lucky for you, the experts at Ogden Body Shop have the perfect repair process down pat! The first step to this process is you giving our shop a call. During this call, we will ask what type of services you were looking for, if you were recently in an accident, etc. At the end of the call, we will schedule an appointment so we can observe the car ourselves and see what we think will need to be done. We will then communicate this with you and make sure that you understand everything we are planning to do, including our methods, how long we believe it will take, etc. The first step in the process of actually servicing your vehicle, we disassemble or “teardown” the area of your vehicle that has been damaged. This is a necessary step so we can see beneath just the superficial, and determine whether or not there is deeper, more serious damage. This is also the part of the process when our appraiser from the Motor Vehicle Physical Damage Appraisers (MVPD) comes to assess for himself. When his job is done, a full written cost is made. The last step of the process is servicing the vehicle to your situation’s specific needs. This also involves ensuring that the framework is up to industry safety standards, and has not been compromised in the collision. Once we have finished servicing your vehicle, we will give you a call and arrange for pick up. At this time, if we have given you an Enterprise rental car to use while your car was being serviced, you can trade that car back to us. We will return the rental for you, so all you have to worry about is taking your vehicle back home with you!

We Help
Make The
Insurance
Process
Easy

Accepted Carriers

The last thing we want our customers to feel is stress. After an accident, you have enough on your plate, and the last thing you want to deal with is an auto repair body shop that doesn’t accept your insurance. That is why we take a number of insurance carriers, including Geico, Progressive, Travelers, and more! We strive to make your life as stress-free as possible following your collision, and that is why we offer as many options as possible. We want to be able to help you, not make things harder for you!

Other Unique Benefits Ogden Body Shop Is Proud To Offer

One of the most notable benefits we offer is pickup and delivery services. When you initially call us, you can let us know if you will need a rental car to use while we finish servicing your vehicle. We will have an Enterprise car rental ready for whenever you drop your car off, and then will swap with you when your car is ready to be brought home. We bring the rental car back, so you have no responsibilities except to drive your serviced vehicle home! 

That isn’t the only unique benefit we offer- we also offer free car repair estimates! It is important to note that we do charge for estimates, but that initial estimate fee is waived when you allow us to do the post accident repairs! This means that the only cost you have to worry about is the cost of the repairs themselves.
