Why Is Wheel Alignment Important?

A lot of auto repair customers question the importance of wheel alignment. Is it really necessary?  Yes, it is. Here are three reasons why:   Proper wheel alignment helps keep your vehicle’s suspension system in top working order. Wheel alignment affects fuel efficiency, tire wear, tire performance, vehicle handling and maneuverability. Wheel alignment is a big factor in a vehicle's steering response.     If you don’t believe us, we found a helpful, 4 minute video that clearly shows why wheel alignment is important.   The Importance of Proper Wheel Alignment   At Robert’s Collision & Repair, we use factory-recommended wheel alignment systems to make certain the wheel alignment is on par with factory standards. Why have we invested in such high-tech equipment?

What To Do In An Auto Accident

We are in the midst of the rainy season and that means a lot of people are out on hazardous roads. Unfortunately, accidents happen frequently during this season. If you are involved in a traffic accident, here are some suggestions on what to do:   Before an Accident -- Be sure to carry your driver’s license, current proof of insurance, pen, paper, and a mobile phone with a camera. These items will help make the post-accident process much easier. Also carry a set of cones, warning triangles, or emergency flares in your trunk to help alert traffic. Immediately after an Accident -- 1. Stay calm. Take a deep breath. Think about your safety and those around you. 2. If someone is injured, call 911 immediately. Additionally, call police if there is significant damage to your vehicles. 3. Get off the road as quickly as possible. If you had a minor fender bender, you don't have to leave the cars where they are. If you cannot move your vehicle, alert approaching drivers by ... read more

Safety and Driving Tips for New Year’s Eve

2015 has been an exciting year, and we are looking forward to ringing in 2016. The Robert’s Collision & Repair team wishes all of you a safe and happy New Year’s Eve. Here are some important things to remember so you will all arrive alive, safe and sound, back at home in the new year.   Have a plan before you go out. If you plan to drink, be sure you have a designated driver. Also, take plenty of cash with you in case something happens to your designated driver. Download the Uber app on your smartphone. In case your designated driver bails, you can contact Uber to send a driver over to pick you up. Lucky for you, you brought cash with you, just in case. Call a taxi in case the Uber waiting list is too long. Taxi drivers are numerous and are easy to spot. Good thing you have that cash...and some take credit cards if you’re cash poor.  Here are some of the taxi companies serving the Monterey Peninsula: Yellow Cab ... read more

Halloween Tutorial: How to Dress Up Your Car

Halloween Tutorial: How to Dress Up Your Car

Ever heard of trunk or treating? It is a new way to celebrate Halloween that involves candy, cars, and costumes! What more could you ask for?   Basically, car owners turn their tailgate or trunk into a front porch, complete with a costume and candy. Car owners meet at a central location, and kids can go from car to car amassing tons of candy. It completely eliminates door-to-door doorbell ringing, and is a safe, fun, and festive way to celebrate Halloween.   The fun part is dressing up your car for a trunk or treating event. You can go for a scary look, or even recreate your kids’ favorite Disney Movie. The possibilities are endless. Here are just a few ideas:   Add some teeth and tongue to the trunk of your SUV. Don’t forget about the candy for the end of the tongue. What about bringing your front yard to the back of your pick-up truck? Use lawn ornaments, such as skeletons, tombstones, or cobwebs, to decorate. If you are a fan of Disney, this on ... read more
