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 Collimotive CARSTAR Center in Winter Park, FL. 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 first thing you want to do after a storm is document the damage to your vehicle. Take photos or record videos to show all possible damage, as well as surroundings - anything that can smooth out the process. Then, be sure to bring your car in for an assessment, as this will not only help liaise with your insurance company, but it will also determine the type of repair that's best for you. The assessment will establish whether PDR is a feasible solution for your vehicle, which is usually the case for minor dents, creases and dings. This particular solution can take 2 to 3 days to be finalized. If the dents are sharp, the paint has been too stretched, or the damage is too extensive for PDR, then conventional repairs are needed. This process is longer and can take up to a month.
