Although it may not be as easy as it sounds, getting your car fixed after a storm shouldn't be a stressful process for you. And it won't be if you entrust your vehicle to the capable hands of our experienced technicians at CARSTAR Chilton Auto Body San Rafael in San Rafael, CA. We'll assist you every step of the way, starting with a thorough assessment of the damage. This is also something you should do immediately after the storm, recording the damage with photos and videos to make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible. The initial assessment goes a long way to determine the type of hail damage car repair you need. If the extent if the damage is not too high, then paintless dent repair may be the solution for you (a time and cost effective solution). However, extensive damage may require conventional repair services, which can take longer and end up costing more.
The initial assessment will determine the type of hail damage car repair your vehicle needs. Usually, you'll have two options: paintless dent repair for small dents and creases, and conventional repair for more extensive damage. If PDR is an option for you, then the method is pretty quick and affordable. Qualified technicians will manipulate the metal in such way that the dents are pushed or pulled out without the need for body filler or paint. For more extensive damage, such as sharp dents and dings or panels where the pain has been stretched too much, conventional repairs are the best way to go. This can take longer, sometimes even up to a month and can involve different services and techniques.

From arranging for tow services (if necessary) to liaising with your insurance to get you back on the road, we take care of everything including (of course) restoring your vehicle to pre-storm condition. We'll conduct a thorough damage assessment and provide you with the best option for your car, as well as a detailed repair plan so you know exactly what to expect.
