Try as you might, sometimes you can’t protect your car from the elements, and a bad hailstorm can leave your car looking like a golf ball. A car with hail damage is most likely driveable, but the dents left in the car’s body can decrease the car’s value. We’ve included some tips for whether or not hail damage repair is worth it and the next steps you should take down below.
Should I pay to remove hail damage?
Because hail damage is often just cosmetic, deciding whether hail damage repair is worth it often depends on the individual’s situation. The first thing to consider is your car insurance. If you have comprehensive coverage, hail damage is most likely covered by your insurance. However, if hail damage is not covered by your insurance plan, or you have a high deductible on a car that is not worth very much, it may not be worth it to pay for hail damage.
How much will it cost?
The cost of a repair will vary depending on the level of damage, the number of dents, and the make and model of the vehicle. Bring your car into Eustis, and we will give you an estimate to help you determine whether you want to proceed with repairs.
How does it work?
The type of repair is dependent on the level of damage the car has taken. If the damage is serious, the technician may remove and replace parts of the car’s body and paint it to match the color of the rest of the car. With minor repairs, body shops utilize a variety of methods. Some use putty to fill small dents and paint over patches. However, those methods can be costly, time-consuming, and sometimes toxic. At Eustis Body Shop we recommend paintless dent repair. Paintless dent repair involves a very skilled technician who massages out dents to return your car’s body to its original shape. This method is often more cost-effective and quicker than other forms of dent repair and will leave your ride looking good as new!
