Hail Damage Car Repair Process

When a storm hits, it can be difficult to know what type of damage it will cause to your vehicle. If hail has damaged your car, it can be frustrating, but it isn’t the end of the road. A few minor dents in your vehicle’s body can usually be repaired with quick and affordable paintless dent repair. More severe damage requires more in-depth repairs and techniques.

If your vehicle has been damaged by hail, it’s important to bring it in for an assessment as quickly as possible. Paintless dent repairs are usually fairly quick, only two or three hours, while more severe damage will require a longer time to complete.

How to Prepare for Severe Storms

It’s impossible to always prepare and plan for everything the weather throws at us. But you can be ready for certain events. If you can’t park your vehicle indoors or you know hail damage is inevitable, make sure you follow our quick guide:


Always have copies of your vehicle registration, title, insurance card, and driver’s license in a secure space in your home. Make sure to keep these documents updated if you make any changes. If you have to leave your vehicle outside as a storm approaches, make sure the area is free of possible debris that can damage your car. This includes:

  • Tree limbs
  • Possible airborne hazards if the wind is bad enough
  • Clogged water drains that can result in flooding and water damage

After the Storm

Document everything! Record all the damage with photos and videos. Make sure you note all locations of damage and any impacts from the storm.
