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 West-Hill CARSTAR Auto Body in Hillside, 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 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.
If your car has suffered damages during a storm, contact us any time after the storm clears and we'll provide you with help and support every step of the way. 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. We also offer a 5-year limited national warranty on qualifying repairs for your peace of mind.
While hail damage repair is an essential part of the services we offer, we also provide a range of other services that bring value to our customers. These include auto collision repair, fleet services, paintless dent repair and even 24/7 accident assistance. Whatever your car needs may be, we are here to help. Not only that, but we understand the importance of balancing costs and rewards, so we offer national warranty for most of our repairs and financing options to help you with your repairs bill. We're not just here for your car, we are here for you as well and we want to make sure you get moving quickly and affordably.
