Top 10 Things to Remember When You’re in an Accident

We’ve all been there at least once and the sound of crashing metal is hard to forget. Whether it’s a minor fender bender or major accident, it can be an emotional experience and oftentimes, is extremely hectic and confusing. Even though it’s a stressful time, there are a few things you should remember to do to protect yourself and your interests.

  1. STOP! Never drive away even in a minor accident. You should assess the situation and turn on your hazard lights. If you’re able to move the car out of the way of traffic, do so but move to safety quickly.
  2. Call 911, especially if there are any injuries.
  3. ALWAYS call the police and file an accident report. Even if the other driver requests you not to call the police- do so right away!
  4. Give an accurate report to the police. Tell the investigating officer everything you remember and if you’re not sure about certain facts, let the officer know that too.
  5. Do not discuss the accident or admit fault to anyone, other than the police officer.
  6. Take pictures. You will want to document any damages to your vehicle and the other person’s vehicle; along with any physical injuries to you or your passengers.
  7. Exchange information. You should request the name, address and telephone numbers of every person involved; including insurance information. If there are any witnesses, obtain their documentation, as well.
  8. You will need to notify your own insurance carrier to report the accident, even if you are not at fault. They can help you file a claim with the other person’s insurance carrier and assist you with following up.
  9. Seek medical attention immediately. Sometimes physical injuries from a car accident will not become apparent until a few hours or days after the accident. You should go to your local emergency room or see your family physician.
  10. Keep a detail account of the accident. Document everything you remember about the accident. Make sure you include things like the time of day, the weather, traffic and road conditions at the time of the accident. You will want to keep a record of claim numbers, the adjusters information, receipts for a rental car or other expensed incurred as a result of the accident.

Unfortunately, accidents happen but it’s important to remember to stay calm and in control. Remember to take pictures and document everything. Additionally, if you have the misfortune of being in an accident or minor collision, and want your car to feel like new again, call us at Magic One- 704.504.5222.  We are here to help!

Let Magic One Put the “Bling” Back in Your Wheels

Monday, November 17, 2014

Author: SuperUser Account

So today, I’m at the bank. I make my deposit and start to leave. I put the car in drive and all of a sudden I hear that sound… that sound my beautiful alloy wheels make when they’re crushing up against the concrete curb. I want to cry! I’m so nauseated!

However, there is hope.  I work for the perfect company, Magic One. They know how to make my wheels go “bling-bling” again! Magic One/Interior Magic technicians are skillfully trained to repair those, “Oh My Goodness, what have I done,” moments!

Darryl Welch, one of our Interior tech, does just this type of repairs. To do it correctly, he uses a special pneumatic air tool to level down the damage and then sands it until it’s completely smooth. Once the surface is even and clear, he applies a solvent based paint to match the rims and finishes it up with a clear coat.

No matter how amazing your car looks, if your wheels are scratched or damaged it will ruin the appearance of your car; not to mention the hefty price tag to replace those alloy wheels. It’s sort of like a Christmas tree without the lights to make it shine. It just doesn’t work! Let Magic One put the “bling” back in your wheels and money back in your wallet. Call us at 704.504.5222 or visit our website at magiconeauto.com.

Interior Magic’s New “Special Stitch Technique”- Magic One

Thursday, October 16, 2014

Author: SuperUser Account

Recently, Interior Magic announced a new specialized stitching technique that offers an innovative process for fixing severely damaged interiors where the seam is coming apart or the seat pattern is difficult to duplicate. This new method provides a more durable, longer-lasting, and visually improved option over our previous blind stitch method. This will allow us the capability of repairing seats that would have previously required re-upholstery.

This process can usually be completed within an hour, saving the customer time and money. This prevents our customers from having to leave their vehicle for long periods of time or ordering costly OEM material.

Since, this stitching technique is so specialized, only a limited number of Interior Magic/ Magic One technicians will have the opportunity to learn this new process.
