The Hail Damage Dent Repair Process

Whenever you experience hail damage to your vehicle, there are steps to take in the repair process. Here is a closer look at how to go through that process and get your vehicle back out on the road.


Identify the damage

A lot of hail damage can be fixed with paintless dent repair in Charlotte, although extensive damage will call for major body work. Make sure the paint has not been damaged and that the damaged area can be massaged out with having to order new parts.

Report your claim

Contact the claims department at your insurance company and make sure you have all the necessary information about your vehicle when reporting the damage. You also want to relate the details of the incident in which the damage occurred. That means having all the pertinent information, such as where the damage occurred and what part of the vehicle was damaged. Make sure you get a claim number when speaking with your insurance company.

Look into car rental

After many instances in which a vehicle is damaged by hail, there will be the need for a temporary car rental. Many insurance policies will provide a certain amount of money per day for car rental options. If your policy does not have any rental car coverage, a customer associate at Dent Pro of The Carolinas Charlotte can connect you with a local rental car company.

Get an appraisal

Even if you are required at a body shop of the company’s choosing, it does not mean that your paintless dent repair has to be done there.
