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.
The first thing you want to do after a storm is document the damage to your vehicle. Take photos or record videos to show all possible damage, as well as surroundings - anything that can smooth out the process. Then, be sure to bring your car in for an assessment, as this will not only help liaise with your insurance company, but it will also determine the type of repair that's best for you. The assessment will establish whether PDR is a feasible solution for your vehicle, which is usually the case for minor dents, creases and dings. This particular solution can take 2 to 3 days to be finalized. If the dents are sharp, the paint has been too stretched, or the damage is too extensive for PDR, then conventional repairs are needed. This process is longer and can take up to a month.
