You or someone else just drove into your garage door. Do not panic, this is an occurrence that happens from time to time. It can particularly happen during periods of inclement weather such as a Minnesota blizzard. You pull into your driveway and hit a patch of ice and slide into the door. Door Power in Norwood, Minnesota can help you repair or replace the garage door.
What to Do First
First, inspect the damages to the garage door and the car. Visually check the rollers, hinges, lifting cables, and entire lifting system. Remember, it is best not to touch anything or move your vehicle until a professional garage door repair company arrives. The crash site is both a safety hazard and a scene that an insurance adjuster may need to inspect.
If the damage is not too bad, remove the vehicle but make sure there is not anything hooked on the vehicle. Stand about eight feet from door and test to make sure it is working properly. Press the button on the remote opener and make sure there is not any noise, and everything is working properly in its place. If you hear a noise or see something that is off, then stop the test immediately and do not touch anything. Call Door Power to come out and look at the damage.
If the damage is bad, do not touch or move anything. Do not even move the car. Call one of our technicians immediately.
Which Insurance Company to Call
If someone hit your garage door, it is difficult to know which insurance company that you want to call. For damage to the garage door call your homeowners insurance and for damage to your car call your auto insurance. They will be able to determine who pays for what damages. Let the professionals determine what type of coverage is available to you.
Can Your Garage Door be Repaired?
