You always need to get a police report when you have an accident that involves other people or property that way everyone involved is protected and you won’t run into a "he said, she said" situation.
That way your claim process and repair can start right away, and you won’t have to worry about a second tow charge, storage fees, or waiting for the tow company to find time to bring it from there location to our shop.
We have Enterprise rental vehicles on site so you never have to go pick one up or wait for one! We have a wonderful floating selection varying from cars, trucks, SUVS/vans, and sports cars. If we do not have a vehicle on site you like, you can request a different one that fits your needs or budget and usually we can have it here to our shop within 30 minutes!
Always check your car for damage to make sure it is safe to drive after the collision. Notably checking for tire damage, suspension damage, and leaking fluids. If you are unsure if your vehicle is safe to drive it is best to request for a tow which the police can assist you with.
If possible and you can safely do so, It is always a good idea to take photos of the crash scene for documentation. Take photos of the scene, your vehicle, the other person’s vehicle, and property that may have been damaged during the accident.
If your accident involves an animal there is no need to call the police or get a police report, the only reason you would need to call the police after hitting an animal is if the animal is on the road or if you need help setting up a tow.
