First and foremost, when one has been involved in an accident, the feeling of anger, sadness, shock, helplessness, etc. is overwhelming. One must quickly come to terms with reality and act with clarity and purpose.

If you own or drive a vehicle, or even just for daily living, we suggest downloading from the App Store onto your phone the Farchis App. This will help you in many ways, including getting assistance when you need it the most. You can arrange to tow your vehicle after an accident or mechanical fault. You can also upload photos of the situation and the damaged vehicle and any other relevant details. There are many other functions.

A presence of mind is needed, as you will need to take stock of what just happened. You will need to do the following:

  • The Farchis App will allow you to call the nearest police station, as you will need to have the police attend the scene. The police will need to attend the scene so that you can then get a Police Report, which you will need for insurance.
  • Check to see if there are any injured persons. If there are any injuries, call an ambulance to transport the injured to a hospital for medical attention. This can be facilitated by the Farchis App which has a number of nearby hospitals
  • If you can still come out of the vehicle, do so and record the scene, preferably by taking photos of the damage on your vehicle, the placing of your vehicle about how and where the accident happened. The Farchis App facilitates the recording of all these photos which can be used by the insurance and the repairer.
  • You should record details of the other vehicle, the one you have just had an accident with.
  • You must get full details of the driver of the other vehicle and their insurance details. You should also record these details by way of taking photos of the documents.
  • It is advisable never to negotiate your way out of this accident scene, as this can have very negative results down the road.
  • When the police have attended to the accident scene, you can arrange to tow through the Farchis App. Vehicles towed this way will be destined for Farchis Automotive Center in Bluff Hill.
  • The very necessary step will be the identification of at least three-panel beating and spraypainting repairers.

Panel Beating

Panel beating is simply described as the repair of vehicle body parts back to the state they were in before the accident. This is achieved through the beating of the crinkled panels back into shape. In other cases, some areas of the damaged panel are not accessible using the panel beating tools, e.g. where double panels exist. These cases call upon the use of body filler.
