So you’ve got a crashed car, great, now what? What’s your next step? Do you try to get it repaired, or do you give up on your vehicle and purchase a new one?

But what about when you’re car has been T-Boned and repairs are going to cost you thousands of dollars? Well insurance should be covering this, but will your car ever be the same? What happens to your resale value? So many questions, so few answers.
