Don’t Ignore It When You Hit a Curb

We have witnessed many of our customer's cars suffer damage from hitting the curb. When the winter roads are slick, you are more likely to, unfortunately, hit the curb. It may seem as if this is a small mistake, but it can, in fact, inflict lasting damage on your vehicle. If you have hit the curb recently, we recommend contacting Robert’s Collision and Repair, so we can have a look at  your vehicle:



  • Even if you are going as slow as 5-10 mph, the impact from the curb can damage your tires and wheels.

  • When you hit a curb, you are jolting the connection between your steering system and wheels. The damage to this system can inhibit your ability to steer, especially during winter.

  • Hitting a curb can shock your car’s knuckles, spindles, and axles. This can upset your car’s control system and suspensions.

  • The steering knuckle has two parts: the wheel hub and the spindle. When you hit a curb, you can damage this important component of your vehicle.

As you can see, when you hit the curb, there are many aspects of your car that can get damaged. Your car is much more fragile than it appears to be. If you have hit the curb recently, we encourage you to bring it to our auto repair shop as soon as possible. We will thoroughly inspect it, from bumper to bumper, for any signs of damage. Call us at 831-373-1534 to schedule an appointment. We are conveniently located at 234 Ramona Avenue in Monterey, CA 93940, just off Highway 1 and Del Monte Blvd. We look forward to seeing you soon!
