My Own Worst Enemy: Common Reasons You May Require Repairs

We all know the feeling of looking in the rear view mirror thinking you’ve got plenty of room to clear that cement post and then, it happens: “Crunch!” You hear the sound and dread getting out of your car to look at the damage.

Sound familiar?

How about this scenario? You’re using the ATM and in trying to pull up close to the screen, you misjudge the distance of your car to the ATM and your side mirror pops off the car.

Ever happened to you?

Or you prop a ladder against your house and all of a sudden, “Wham!” The ladder falls and smashes into the top of your car, busting your windshield.

Maybe you’ve been in a parking lot and let go of your cart temporarily only to watch it careen into your trunk, causing a dent or scratching your paint.

You really shouldn’t feel bad. Many times we are our own worst enemies.

We’re guessing the person who said this may have accidentally keyed their car while fumbling with the door lock with an armful of grocery bags.

If you do get into an unfortunate situation like one of the above, the first thing you should do is talk to your insurance company to see what can be done and what is covered.
