What You Need to Know About Auto Hail Repair
Updated: Mar 2, 2022
Hail damage is often unexpected and unplanned for. When your vehicle is damaged by a hail storm, you may worry that the repairs will be expensive and inconvenient. We're here to tell you doesn't have to be. Before you take your car to an auto body shop for paintless dent repair, here's what you should know:
Your Auto Insurance Premium Will Not Increase
If you have full coverage auto insurance and file a comprehensive claim for an act of nature, you will not be penalized. You can expect that your premium will remain the same and not increase.
Repairs May Cost Little to Nothing
Most hail repair companies often offer their customers Customer Care Services such as free estimates, discounts, a free rental car, and even financial assistance, when needed. Depending on the amount of your insurance deductible and the hail repair facility you chose, your out of pocket expense may be minimal to zero.
Do Not Wait to Repair Hail Damage
It's easy to believe that it's better to wait until the end of "hail season" before having your vehicle repaired with PDR. However, if you wait to have hail damage repaired and your vehicle is damaged again by a second hail storm, the total damage could then cost more to repair than your vehicle's value. Therefore, when you do finally file a claim, you run the risk of the insurance ruling it as a total loss.
Find a Local, Qualified Repair Facility
There are many hail repair shops to choose from and they are not "one size fits all." In fact, many out of town companies will flock to a city that has been hit by a hail storm and offer gimmicks to earn your business. That being said, it is best to choose a local, reputable and experienced company that will get the job done right the first time. A local paintless dent repair facility like Precision Hail and Collision can guarantee a Lifetime Warranty. We can promise to save you a lot of time, money, and stress.
