Auto Body Repair in Bergen County NJ

A car accident is unexpected and it is a fact of life that accidents will happen to a car driver at one point or another. Some accidents are routine and minor such that a simple auto body repair job can fix the damage with little hassle. Bergen county is a great place to live, and given the immense population, thousands feel this way too. But as always with more people come more chances for accidents. For auto body repair in Bergen county NJ, we’re right here for you in Ridgewood. We’ve been in business for nearly 30 years. As experts in auto body repair, we notice common forms of damage that require our assistance at Village Auto Body to repair. On today’s blog, we’d like to discuss common repairs we take care of on a regular basis and the likelihood of having it covered by insurance.

Windshield damage
The windshield is at risk of damage from rocks, vandalism, bad weather, falling debris, flying birds and so much more. It also obscures the view of the road. It will also get you on the wrong side of the law. A cracked windshield is a hazard as it can easily shatter from further damage from a collision. Most customers will come in for windshield repair from damage caused by fine stone chips thrown from the wheels of cars in front.  The cost of repair may vary depending on the extent of damage, or it may be necessary to replace the entire windshield.

Dented bumper
This is a very common occurrence.  Drivers who are yet to master the art of reverse parking will have a dented bumper at one point or another. It will most likely happen where parking space is cramped and you have to swing the vehicle to and fro to fit into the available slot. The cost of a dented bumper will depend on the severity. Some dents require a simple hammer and paint job, others will require welding and a comprehensive paint job. Collision coverage will usually cover a dented bumper.

Rear and front damage

Collisions with other vehicles or objects are the causes of general rear and front damage. This will include a dented bumper and damaged lights in the rear. Front damage will also often include front lights, a crumpled engine hood, and cracked radiator.   We see more rear end collisions than front end damage, again due to poor estimation of distances while backing up. Collision coverage will cover both rear and front damage.

Scratched paint
This is also common. This is typically caused by children running sharp objects on the paint, malicious vandals, side to side collisions and scratching when doing flush parking.  Some scratches will only require a touch-up pen while other will require repainting the whole car.
