The Silver Lining of a Car Accident

Posted March 7, 2017 by Matthew

While it is true that occasionally life hands us a big old lemon, it is comforting to know that sometimes there is a silver lining. As an auto body repair shop, we know firsthand that being involved in a car accident definitely falls under the “life just handed me a lemon” category. At American Auto Body, we strive to be that silver lining for our customers involved in car accidents.

We are a family owAmerican Auto Bodyned and operated auto body repair shop, in business since 1979. Over the years, we have worked with and supported thousands of customers who have been involved in car accidents. While the car accident itself is unfortunate, each new customer situation has helped us design our business, so that we can better serve our clients during these stressful times.

We strive to be a place of comfort for customers. Our mission is to make your collision repair experience completely stress and worry free.


We provide several services to help you during repairs:

Free pick-up and delivery – We offer FREE metro-wide pick-up and delivery service. We pick up your damaged vehicle and drive it to our repair shop. Once repairs are complete, we deliver your repaired vehicle back to you.

Free loaner car – Our convenient loaner system allows you to pick up a car at the time you drop yours off for repair. There are no age restrictions (must have a valid license) and it helps you avoid the hassle of coordinating with car rental and insurance companies. Plus, when you combine both the free pick-up and delivery, along with the free loaner car, you won’t have to leave your home or office to get your car repaired.

Insurance details – If needed, we will work with your insurance company throughout the claim process. We work with just about every insurance company out there. We have the ability to handle insurance claims electronically, from itemized documentation to digital imaging. We make every effort to provide your insurance company with all the information they need to pay your insurance claim quickly and fairly.

Our exceptional customer service starts at the first phone call and lasts throughout the entire repair process. We understand that you have made a substantial investment in the purchase of your car and in many cases “your baby.” We are committed to be the silver lining by delivering quality work, consistent communication, and the very best in customer service when life decides to hand you that lemon.

Give us a call today at 763-424-2522 to schedule your repair service.
