Despite what this dreary spring might suggest, summer is closer than ever. With it comes our lovely and volatile Minnesotan storms—with those storms comes hail. Lots of it.  And with hail comes auto damage. Lots of it.

 

So what should you do if you unexpectedly get your car caught in a severe hailstorm? Finding shelter and taking care of yourself is, of course, the top priority. But once the storm has passed you’re going to want to see what you can do about those dents in your car’s finish. Dent Heads can help with paintless dent repairs, but there are things to do before you bring your car in for hail dent repair.

Contact your Insurance Provider

Are you covered for hail damage repair? You might not even know if you’ve never taken out a claim for it before. If you are able to file a claim, make sure to give your provider as much information as you remember over the phone. Even seemingly menial details like the time of day the damage took place are important for reimbursement purposes.

 

Be aware that you may need to pay a deductible to get financial assistance for repair jobs, depending on your insurance policy.

 

Make sure to ask which types of maintenance, such as paintless dent repair, your policy will cover. This will affect which specialist you take your car, motorcycle, or fleet vehicle too.

 

If this process sounds complicated, Dent Heads can help. We work with any insurance provider to help get you the coverage you need.

Photograph Hail Damage

Once you figure out you can file a claim, you will want to take as many photos of your car’s damage as possible. Shoot different angles and be very thorough in your approach; this will ensure that the insurance provider has the information he or she needs to give you the correct reimbursement. Should you not have time to do this, we at Dent Heads also photograph your hail damage before repair free of charge.
