Hail Damage Car Repair in Des Plaines, IL 60016

How To Deal With Hail Damage

Protecting your car from hail damage is always desirable and advisable, but not always possible. Storms can strike at unpredictable times and you don't always have the chance to get it under cover. If there's not much you can do about preventing hail damage, there is certainly a lot you can do about repairing it. Finding an excellent body repair shop with great experience in hail damage repair is of the utmost importance, mostly because the first assessment will determine what type of repairs are necessary for your vehicle. Getting your car in for an assessment is definitely the first step to take and you should do this as quickly as it is safe to do so. Make sure you understand what is the type and extent of the damage before you actually send the car to repairs. Here, at CARSTAR #15011 in Des Plaines, IL we provide you with a detailed repair plan that you can review and approve, so give us a call today and we'll make sure to restore your vehicle to pre-storm condition.

The Process Of Hail Damage Car Repair

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.

Choosing Your Hail Damage Car Repair Shop

The aftermath of a storm can sometimes be overwhelming and there are many details you need to deal with, including finding the best auto body shop for hail damage car repair. Obviously, location is one of the main factors going into that decision, but it should not be the only one. Find a center that offers hail damage repair specifically as a service, as this means not only that they have experience in dealing with this type of damage, but also most likely that they will provide you with options. Here, at CARSTAR #15011 in Des Plaines, IL, we offer 24/7 assistance and we walk you through every step of the process, so that you can understand what the repair involves and what to expect.
