Three things to do if your auto is damaged in a hurricane

When people think about hurricane damage, they usually focus on damage to their homes. Unfortunately, a hurricane can also damage your vehicle. If you find your car damaged by a hurricane, do these three things immediately!

  1. Get to safety. This is the first and most important thing to do if you are in a damaged car during a hurricane. If you need to leave your vehicle, get to a safe spot as quickly as possible.
  2. Arrange for towing when necessary. Call a tow truck if your vehicle is damaged to the point where it can’t be driven. Be sure to take your damaged vehicle to a repair shop your insurance provider approves.
  3. Call your local insurance agent. Working with a local agent can help you get your auto repaired or replaced with less stress and headaches. They can also help you throughout the claims filing process.

Hurricanes can cause a lot of damage to your home, auto, and property. Be sure to prioritize your safety first!
