Frequently Asked Questions

Is paintless dent repair safe for my vehicle?

Paintless dent repair is one of the safest options available for your vehicle. Unlike other methods, PDR does not require the use of harsh chemicals, paint, or filler. Our process is more like fine metal work that restores your vehicle's value than a reconstructive repair, and it is entirely safe.

How long do repairs take?
Most complete vehicle hail repairs are completed in one to three days, depending on the extent of damage.

Will you work with my insurance company? Do you deal with insurance claims?
Yes, it is very common to go through insurance with larger claims, especially hail damage. We help you work with your insurance company to make the claims process as pain free as possible.

Will claiming hail damage company increase premium my rates?
No, claiming your hail damage will not increase your rates. It is technically referred to as "An Act of Nature" and does not count against you.

Do I need to go to a body shop for hail damage repairs?
Almost all hail damage can be repaired with paintless dent repair. In fact, most conventional body shops would contact a company like ours to execute the repairs. We are expertly trained and certified in the art of hail damage repair.

Important considerations
Your insurance company is not necessarily looking out for your best interest. It is a common practice for them to underbid a repair, suspecting that some customers won't actually have their vehicle repaired.

Additionally, it is important to have your vehicle repaired, especially if you file a claim, because your insurance may not honor future claims if you cannot provide proof that you had the vehicle's previous damage repaired. Futhermore, you, as the customer, have the right to choose who completes the repairs. Some insurance companies will lead you to believe that you have to use one of their "recommended" or "preferred" shops, but this is often tied to who gives the biggest discounts and not who necessarily does the best work.
