Why You Need a Proper Hail Damage Estimate and Inspection

If you have had the unfortunate situation where your car was tortured by a storm those big hail pellets, the damage can be overwhelming. It makes for more hassle because then you have to get insurance involved, find a repair shop and get all of that taken care of in a timely manner. Putting the repairs off could accrue more damage and that will complicate matters more for you as a vehicle owner.

Regardless of how the dents were acquired, there are a few things you as the car owner should know before going to the insurance company or the dent repair shop, in order to get your car estimated and quoted for the repairs.

Things You Should Know To Make the Estimation Process Easier

Before you go to the insurance company or dent repair shop, try to have the exterior of your car as clean as possible. When the car is clean, it makes it easier for the dents to be seen and other damage will show. That way nothing gets overlooked.

Secondly, pay attention to the conditions in which the vehicle is being inspected. If your car or truck is being inspected in the sunlight, it makes it difficult to view all the dents. If its inside, is there proper lighting that will reflect the dents. Outside under the shade or inside with ample lights are best.

Lastly be sure that the dent repair business you’re taking your vehicle to is experienced in hail damage and quoting. They should know what to look for and what dents can be repaired and which ones cannot.
