Durham Transportation Services
After an accident, your vehicle may be damaged and in need of repairs, leaving you without a way to get around while the repairs take place. If your vehicle is deemed a total loss by the insurance company, meaning it would be more expensive to repair than to replace, you could be left without any form of transportation while the insurance company assesses the value of the car. Either way, you may need to find an alternate method of getting to work, doctor’s appointments, and other daily activities.
