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.
If you want your car restored to pre-storm condition quickly and efficiently, then you need to be prepared for hail damage car repair and know how to navigate the process. Here, at CARSTAR Carmasters Collision West in Syracuse, NY, we offer assistance at every step to help you understand the process and speed things along. 1. Damage Assessment - This first step begins with you. Be sure to take photos and document the damage as soon as you are able to. Jotting down locations can also help. 2. Repair Plan - The assessment conducted by our qualified technicians will determine not just the extent of the damage, but also the best course of action. This can either be paintless dent repair or conventional repairs. You will be presented with a detailed repair plan before work on your car starts. 3. Hail Damage Repair - Once the plan is approved, then the actual repair work can start. Depending on whether it's PDR or conventional repairs, this step can take anywhere between 2 days and a whole month.
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.
