As soon as you discover the damage, contact your insurance provider to start the claims process. This is one of those claims that you should not hesitant to file a claim for fear of your insurance premiums being raised. Hail damage is covered under comprehensive coverage and is considered an act of nature. Filing a hail claim will never cause your premiums to go up. Your insurance provider will send out an appraiser or have you go to an appraisal center for a full appraisal of your vehicle’s hail damage. After the inspection, your insurance company will most often give you a list of several body shops they recommend. The shops are called Direct Repair Programs where shops have agreements with the insurance companies. Typically, these body shops depend on the insurance companies to direct work to them and in return agree to provide discounts on parts and labor to the insurance company. The majority are good body shops; however, they are under pressure to keep repair costs down to maintain their good standing with the insurance companies. Most insurance providers will allow you to take your vehicle to the servicer of your choice.
