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 Ballard Collision CARSTAR in Seattle, WA, 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.
