Your Step-By-Step Guide To Hail Damage Repair For Your Car
Step #1. Report the hail damage to your car insurance company.
Your insurance company should be contacted immediately so you can make them aware of any hail damage that your car has due to a recent hail storm. If you make a claim with your insurance company, we can work with you to help you save more on insurance deductibles that qualify for up to $500.
Step #2. Educate yourself on the different hail dent removal techniques that are commonly used.
Hail dent removal is done one of two ways: your car’s sheet metal will either be hammered and painted or a paintless dent removal technique can be used. Here at DentZilla, we recommend and use the paintless dent removal technique. When this technique is utilized, metal tools that have been specially molded will work on the underside of the damage to your car in order to avoid disturbing the factory finish paint on the car. Having your hail dents removed through hammering and painting should be reserved for particularly large dents where the paint has been damaged.
Step #3. Find an auto body shop or a mobile company that meets your needs.
Research a few different companies in your area that offer hail damage repairs for vehicles. Here at DentZilla, we offer free estimates for all of our work, and we are a mobile company that can come to you and repair your car in a timely manner.
