As soon as hail damage is found, contact your insurance provider to initiate the claims process. This is one of those claims that you should not hesitate or procrastinate about. Do not fear your insurance premiums being raised. Hail damage is considered an act of nature is covered under plan’s comprehensive coverage. Filing a hail claim will never cause your premiums to go up. Your insurance provider will assign an appraiser or ask you to go to an appraisal center for a full appraisal of the damage to your automobile. After the inspection is complete, your insurance company will probably provide a list of recommended body shops. Recommended shops are called Direct Repair Programs in which body 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. This is a profitable way of doing business for both entities. Most of these shops are good body shops; however, the arrangement adds pressure for them to keep repair costs down to maintain good standing with the insurance companies. Most insurance providers will allow you to take your automobile 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 bad 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 automobile’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 automobile.
