Nasty storms can strike at anytime and in most cases can cause severe damage to property, vehicle included. There are circumstances, however, where the damage is not extensive, but regardless, hail damage car repair can help restore your vehicle to pre-storm condition. Depending on the extent of the damage, there are several services included in this type of vehicle repair. It can be as simple as paintless dent repair or as complex as replacing entire parts of the body. There's not much you can do about preventing hail damage, but there are plenty of options when it comes to fixing it. Contact us at Charlie's CARSTAR Auto Body in Cahokia, IL to learn more about what the practice involves and we'll walk you through the entire process, step by step.
Depending on the level of damage your car has suffered during the storm, we offer different options on how to repair the vehicle. The first step of the process though is assessing the level of damage and making sure everything is documented for the insurance company. The size and location of the damages will determine whether paintless dent repair is a feasible solution for your car. It is usually a great method for minor dents and creases and it doesn't take more than 2 to 3 days. If the vehicle paint is chipped or scratched, then conventional repairs will be needed. This is also the case if there are too many dents in the metal. Sometimes, the metal can be so stretched that entire panels would need replacing. The process can take up to a month, but you'll be able to see a detailed repair plan beforehand and you'll be regularly updated along the way.
