Greensboro Transportation Services
Often after a motor vehicle accident, a person’s car will be damaged. If your vehicle is being repaired after an accident or is declared a total loss, you may not have access to transportation for a period of time. Alternate forms of transportation are available and the money you pay for these services may be reimbursable from the at-fault insurance company. We have taken the time to post transportation services in Greensboro, North Carolina, that may be useful to you in determining how you will travel while you wait for your car to be repaired or for your total loss check to be issued.
If you run into problems with the property damage portion of your claim, it may be advisable to contact an attorney in your area.
