There are some days that simply just do not go as planned. Some days it just seems like from the moment your feet touch the floor everything is just a little bit off. You woke up late. Your outfit just does not fit quite right. Your hair just will not lay the right way. Your kids complain about what you make for breakfast. Your kids will not get moving and you are late getting out the door. You are taking all of your things out to your car and you spill them all over the ground. Then as you get in you frantically start the car and put it in reverse and BAM – you hit the garage door! So if this happens what on earth do you do next?
Ran Into Garage Door Frame? Make Sure Everyone is Safe
The first thing that you want to do is make sure that everyone in the car is safe.

So when you hit the garage door your kids could easily get bounced around inside your car. If everyone is not okay you will want to attend to their needs immediately.

Check to See if You Can Close Garage Door
If your garage door is not able to open you have a few things that you can try. First you can see if you can manually open or close your garage door. You do not want to use force. Using force can cause further damage to your garage door opener, motor, chain, or belt. It would stink to cause even more damage than necessary. If it will not open or close you can use another car to get to work. Leaving your garage door open does present some security concerns so we do not recommend leaving your home unattended until the garage door is fixed. You can call a neighbor to come over and sit at your house and wait for us to get there if needed.
Garage Door Repair
Many times people will want to know how much their repair might be. This will just depend on what damage was done when you hit the garage door. Sometimes you will only need a small repair with a minimal cost. Other time you will actually be better off replacing your garage door opener and the expense is larger. You will want to contact your homeowner’s insurance company and see if it is worth putting a claim in. It will depend on your coverage and how high your deductible is whether or not this will be worth it.
