The experience of your vehicle being damaged in a hailstorm is definitely not a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, the repair process can be more unpleasant than the initial incident. The hassle of contacting your insurance provider, waiting on their appraiser, and running around town obtaining estimates requires a lot of time. Time most people do not have. The process is just as confusing as it is time exhausting. Residents of Melissa have an option. You can take your vehicle to North Dallas Dent located in Allen and we can help you work through the insurance claim process. We understand you have other important things to attend to including work and family and that is if your home was not damaged from the same hail storm. For our Melissa neighbors, we have tried to answer some the common questions and hopefully answered to reduce some of your stress, confusion, and to save your valuable time.
As soon as the damage is discovered, contact your insurance provider to begin the claims process. This is one of those claims that you should not hesitate or procrastinate on. Do not fear 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 assign an appraiser or have ask you to go to an appraisal center for a full appraisal of the damage to your vehicle. After the inspection, your insurance company will most often give you a list of several recommended body shops. The recommended shops are called Direct Repair Programs in which body shops have agreements with the insurance companies. Normally, 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. Most of these shops are good body shops; however, they are under pressure to keep repair costs down to maintain good standing with the insurance companies. Most insurance providers will allow you to take your vehicle to the servicer of your choice and in the State of Texas they cannot force you to take it to a specific body shop.
Paintless dent repair is endorsed by most insurance companies for approved repair of automobile hail damage, unless the damage is too severe to be repaired by PDR and traditional repair methods are required. When hail damage is repaired via paintless dent repair and performed by a professional PDR specialist, it is the least costly option for repair available. PDR 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, therefore restoring it to pre-loss condition. Repainting the factory finish reduces the value of your vehicle.
