Collision Action Plan (CAP): Why You Should Have One
Creating Your Collision Action Plan:
There are no rules for creating this plan as every person’s guide will be unique. However, there are some general things that you can include in your collision action plan that will make an accident a lot easier to manage.
#1 Important Names & Numbers
First, add all important contact information to the top of the plan. This includes:
- Your name, address, phone number, and email
- The same information for your insurance company, preferred auto body shop, towing company, doctor’s office, and an emergency contact.
It might seem like a pain to have to gather this information, but in the case of an accident, you’ll be so thankful that you did. Having the info on hand will save you valuable time. It will also make dealing with a car accident a lot less of a headache.
#3 Print Your Plan
The final step is to print several copies of your plan. Then place one in your glovebox and one in your trunk.
Hopefully, you’ll never have to use it. But if you are involved in an accident, please reach out to Orlando Auto Body at 480-485-4653. We’d be happy to walk you through the steps of having your vehicle repaired and getting you back on the road.
