Spring Back into the Season With a Trip to Winks Body Shop

Another long winter is making way for Spring! Hopefully your vehicle emerged unscathed from suffering any damage. But if it didn’t, you have right now to get your car or truck back into excellent condition for the coming seasons.

We work with many people this time of year to provide collision repair in Ithaca and spiff up their vehicles for better weather. There are so many reasons to repair and clean up your car or truck. Most importantly is to prevent small damages from becoming big headaches.

To Repair or Not Repair? That is the Question.

Winter is sure tough on vehicles. Between accidents with other vehicles, wildlife, falling trees, hail damage and the salt on the roads, it’s a dangerous world out there. Most of the body damage resulting from collisions or falling trees are covered under your automobile insurance policy. Be sure to check with your carrier and review your coverage.

Repairing your vehicle is the best way to keep value in your car or truck. There may come a day when you want to trade up for a new car. Trying to trade your automobile with damage that has not been repaired can really affect your bottom line when it comes to value.

We all know the effects of corrosives on metal. The salt on our roads during the winter just attacks any exposed metal including the frame. Even small dents, dings and scratches can become major issues if left untreated.

So you see that little scratch on the fender? Yes, that one with the paint scratched. Doesn’t look like anything to worry about now but just give it time. Before you know it, that scratch will become an open wound spreading with rust. The paint and clear coat on your vehicle is your only lines of defense against rust. Get it taken care of now and save yourself a huge bill later one.

Maintaining your vehicle will allow you to keep it on the road longer, help you rediscover those new car feelings and provide you with a higher trade-in value when the time comes.

Get Ready for Spring!
