Hail Damage on Your Car: Read This!
If you have hail damage on your car, you need to watch this video. You will learn the process of repairing hail damage on a car by following these steps.
If you have been hit by hail, the first thing you should do is call your insurance company and file a claim. The insurance company will have an adjuster inspect the damage of your vehicle. You might be able to schedule your estimate at your home or the insurance company might have a drive in at a particular auto hail repair shop. This is common if your area was hit by a big hailstorm.
Once you get your estimate from the insurance company you will need to find a reputable auto hail repair shop for your repairs. You can have your insurance company refer you or you can do your own research on Google, Yelp or any other social media site.
After you find an auto hail repair shop, you might notice a difference between the two estimates (insurance vs hail repair shop). This is because hail repair shops use special lights and tools to identify the size and number of hail dents. If this is the cause the hail repair shop will file a supplement with your insurance company.
Vehicle repairs could take anywhere from 2 days to 3 weeks depending on the hail damage and if your vehicle needs to visit the body shop. If the damage can be removed by using paintless dent repair techniques, then your car should be completed quickly. In the meantime, you might not need to rent a car while yours is getting repair and your insurance company may pay for this or sometimes your auto hail repair shop will have a loaner for you.
I hope you enjoyed this video and learned how to repair hail damage on your car.
