When storms strike, it's hard to know what to expect. It's difficult to foresee the extent of the damages or the nature of it as well, but once the dust settles if your car has suffered any damage, then here's what you need to know about hail damage car repair. Firstly, it's not an exact process, because it is greatly influenced by the extent of the damage. If you're lucky, you may get away with a couple of dents that are not very sharp and can be repaired through PDR. If you're less lucky, then your vehicle may require conventional repairs which can be a very complex and lengthy process. One thing is certain though and very important: you should get your car assessed as quickly as possible. Paintless dent repairs don't usually take very long (anywhere between 2 and 3 days), but conventional repairs can take up to one month, so be prepared for such news.
Hail Damage Car Repair comes in many forms depending on the damage produced, but also on the auto body shop of your choice. At CARSTAR, we like to keep things as simple as possible for you, so our process is quick, straightforward and offers full assistance every step of the way. There are things you can also do on your end to streamline the process, such as making copies of your vehicle registration, title, insurance card and driver’s license before the storm hits and keep them in a safe, dry place. Having a repair plan in place is also advisable and we start with a thorough damage assessment. This step will decide whether your vehicle needs conventional repairs or if it can be fixed through paintless dent repair, which is a quicker more affordable option.
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.
