4 Services That Might Be Needed If You Have A Hail-Damaged Vehicle

by Andrew Jackson

If a hail storm has recently affected your area or if you recently took a road trip somewhere only to find yourself stuck in a hail storm, then you could be wondering what to do next. Your car might have been seriously damaged by the hail, and you probably want to get it in good shape fast if you can. There are various services that might be needed if you are hoping to have your hail-damaged vehicle repaired, depending on the type of hail damage that your car sustained and the severity of that hail damage.

1. Body Part Replacement

In some cases, it is more affordable and a whole lot easier to just replace the door, hood or roof of a car that has serious hail damage. If you have an older car, then you might be able to find these parts at a junkyard so that you can save money on the repair. If you have a newer car, however, you will probably want to opt for brand new auto body parts.

2. Paintless Dent Repair

In some cases, paintless dent repair can be used to repair hail damage on a vehicle. This is ideal if possible because it's typically much faster and cheaper than other methods of repairing your vehicle. As the name suggests, your car will not have to be painted if paintless dent repair is done.

3. Traditional Dent Repair

Traditional dent repair is another potential solution for your hail-damaged vehicle. If there are a lot of dents in one area of your vehicle, for example, paintless dent repair might not be an option. If the dents are very severe, traditional dent repair might be the best -- and only -- solution, too. Be aware that if traditional dent repair is done, then part or all of your car might have to be painted.

4. Glass Repair or Replacement

Many cars have glass-related damage after a hail storm. If the hail hit your windshield or windows, for example, it might have chipped or cracked the glass. This doesn't just impact the appearance of your car, either; if the glass is damaged, then you might have trouble seeing out of your windshield or your windows. Plus, you have to worry about this hail-damaged glass shattering when you're driving down the road or when you are getting in and out of your car. A windshield repair and replacement company should be able to help you. If the damage to your auto glass is minimal, then it might be repairable. Otherwise, you may have to have the glass completely replaced. If you need to get your windshield repaired, look at shops like Lloyd’s of Shelton Auto Glass LLC.
