What do I do if I have an accident?

Below is a list of 9 things you need to do if you’re ever in an auto accident in Thunder Bay.

  1. Report the accident to the police.
  2. Call Breeny’s Auto Body Shop before you make a claim.
  3. If your vehicle must be towed, have it brought to our facility. For after-hours towing, call 1-807-622-6558 / 1-807-626-3189
  4. Have Breeny’s perform an estimate; usually only one is required.
  5. Instruct Breeny’s to contact your insurance company to advise them that you are going to have repairs done with us.
