What to do when you get hail damage on your vehicle? There's nothing pleasant about having your vehicle damaged in a hailstorm. Also the process of getting it repaired may be even more unpleasant.
With One Phone Call Your Worries Are Over!
Dealing with your insurance company and running around town getting estimates takes up a lot of time, and it can be confusing. Hopefully the following information will answer some of the questions you might have and help you save a great deal of time.
Your first move should be to contact your insurance company to start the claims process. Many people are hesitant to file a claim for fear of their insurance premiums being raised. But hail damage is covered under your comprehensive coverage and is considered an act of nature. Filing a hail claim will never cause your premiums to go up, regardless of what anyone tells you.
All major insurance companies now endorse paintless dent repair for automobile hail damage, unless the damage is too severe to be repaired with this method. When paintless dent repair is performed by DHAB, it is the best method of repair available. Using paintless dent repair allows you to retain your vehicle's factory finish, rather than having us repair it with aftermarket replacement panels and repainting the damaged area. Your vehicle is restored to pre-loss condition. There is nothing that reduces the value of your vehicle more than having to repaint the factory finish.
When your insurance company inspects your vehicle's hail damage, most often they will give you a list of several body shops they recommend you go to for repairs. These shops have agreements with the insurance companies commonly called Direct Repair Programs.
The body shops depend on the insurance companies to direct work to them and usually agree to give them discounts on parts and labor. Some may be good shops, but the bottom line is they are under pressure to keep repair costs down to remain in good standing with the insurance companies.
DHAB is not on any direct insurance program. We do not depend on the insurance companies for work. Our customers are wonderful about recommending us to their friends and family and it keeps us extremely busy after a hailstorm.
We deliver the best possible paintless dent repair services available and we guarantee our repairs for life. Remember, it is your choice where you have your hail-damaged vehicle repaired, not your insurance company's.
