Immediately upon discovering damage to your vehicle, reach out to your insurance provider to begin the claims process. Do not hesitant to file a claim for fear of your insurance premiums being raised. Filing a hail claim will never cause your premiums to go up. Hail damage is covered under comprehensive coverage and is considered an act of nature. Your insurance provider will send 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 provide you a list of body shops they recommend. The shops are called Direct Repair Programs, where shops have agreements with the insurance companies. Naturally, 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.
Paintless dent repair is endorsed by most insurance providers for automobile hail damage, unless the damage is too severe to be repaired with this technique. When hail damage is repaired by paintless dent repair and performed by a professional PDR technician, it is the best option for repair available. This method allows you to retain your vehicle’s factory finish, rather than having a body shop repair it with aftermarket replacement panels and repainting the damaged area, consequently restoring it to pre-loss condition. There is nothing that reduces the value of your vehicle more than having to repaint the factory finish.
