First and foremost, arriving at traffic collision quickly can be made possible by having first aid kit, fire extinguisher, and safety triangle in your car’s boot. These small particulars enable you to safely secure situation and give emergency aid to anyone who may be hurt.

 Park your Car

Always safely stop your car after collision, and then strive to maintain your composure. 
Before you carefully exit your car, turn on your warning lights to alert other motorists and, if it’s safe to do so, park away from the flow of traffic. 
If there are any further accident victims, make sure to check on them and start providing first aid if you are comfortable doing so. 
Watch out for any nearby fire, smoke, glass fragments, and debris. 
Attempt to alert oncoming traffic and get in touch with anyone who may have witnessed the collision to serve as witness.

Report the accident

Once you’ve made sure that everyone involved is well and that the situation is secure until aid arrives, it’s crucial to document the specifics of your vehicle accident. Note the make, model, and license plate number of any more vehicles involved in the collision. 
To stay in touch, people will trade personal details; names, addresses, and phone numbers are all helpful to have. 
Knowing specifics about their insurance provider and policy number, if available, would be much better.
If you are still reeling from the shock of the accident, it could be challenging to concentrate on gathering this information, but it will be very helpful when filing an insurance claim. 
Record any details you can about the car and report your traffic accident to the authorities if any of the drivers involved are unwilling to comply.

Present a Claim for Insurance

Provide them to the authorities to help them identify who was at responsibility after you’ve made notes and photos of the accident to help you remember any crucial details that may have contributed to your accident in the future. 
Regardless of whether it would be more affordable for you to handle small repairs yourself, report any damage to your car to your insurance carrier.

Maintaining awareness

Maintaining awareness of the situation is crucial whether you are in an accident or your car gets body damage. Always ask inquiries if you have any concerns.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most factory finishes now utilise multiple coats of specialised paints. However, with the appropriate information from the car factory and a computerised paint mixing system, it is possible to ensure every replacement panel installed by a panel beater is capable of matching the previous paint job perfectly.

The car is not a write off if the repairs exceeds the value of the vehicle. You might need to check with your insurance company; depending on the cost of the repairs, but more than likely, general frame damage is not going to mean your car is totaled. It is also possible with today’s modern vehicles, to return the car back to its pre-accident condition. Even if the frame section is bent seemingly beyond repair, it is possible to just replace it without the car being a complete write off

The repair time does vary, depending on the panel beater and the amount of damage sustained to your car. You are going to receive an estimate before dropping off the car, so you know how much time to expect it to be in the shop. Of course, it is necessary to remember this is only an estimate. It is possible for the repair to take longer, should additional damage be detected. You should always be notified of any additional issues located on the vehicle, so you can plan accordingly.

There should always be a warranty on the parts used and the work performed. Sometimes, you just don’t know if the work is done correctly until after you start driving it. This is especially the case if you sustained frame damage and the body repair shop had to work on the frame. Should the repairs fail to correct your damaged vehicle, everything should have a warranty on it.

You will be notified by the panel beater when your vehicle is done and ready to be picked up. You are free to call the panel repair shop for updates on what is going on and for any questions or concerns you might have. If you are unable to pick up the vehicle when it is finished, you are more than welcome to stop by the following day. This way, you can inspect the vehicle in the sunlight and make sure the panel installation is performed correctly and everything is back to pre-accident condition.

What Goes Into Panel Beating of the car?

Different coatings protect the various components of your vehicle. To meet the localized conditions surrounding the car’s parts, these coatings frequently vary in thickness, texture, and type. For example, a paint coating beneath the bonnet must be designed to withstand high engine temperatures. It will not have the same properties as the interior protective coatings. In either case, preparing for a panel beating procedure begins with removing existing coatings to make way for the subsequent work. Seals, deadeners, and other protective elements that prevent the damaged panels from receiving full corrective forces will also be removed by the smash repair experts.

The following step is to rough out the damage. The smash repair specialists use hand-held tools to reshape the smashed area back to its original form and contour. Car manufacturers detail the body panels to give the buyer the desired visual appeal. These panels are meticulously crafted, and the repair must ensure that the roughing out process is flawless.
The goal here is to find the lowest point of damage based on how much the damaged area carved in. The repair technicians use nearly the same force that caused the area to curve out of shape.

Planishing is the final step in the panel beating repair preparation stage. Planishing is the process of restoring a damaged area to its original plane. It smoothes the bumps and hollows on the damaged area to an even plane that feels smooth to the touch. To correct the imperfections from the previous stage, the repair experts frequently use a steel stake and a special planishing hammer. They do this while monitoring the surface with planning devices to ensure that it is as even as possible.
