Comparison Of Paintless Dent Repair And Body Shop Hail Repairs
After a hail storm has occurred, the repair shops and collision centers in an area, eager to make money, begin to advertise as qualified hail damage repair vendors.
Unfortunately, the reality is that many of them have very little to no experience repairing hail damage. In places where hail storms are a rare occurrence, most shops likely will not even know how to properly make an estimate of a hail damaged car. While they mean well, these shops are limited to the methods they are familiar with, which typically means replacing most of a dented car's damaged panels with new, usually after-market ones, or using body fillers to level each dent and repainting the entire panel, oftentimes the entire vehicle.
It is no secret that painting a car diminishes its resale value. These repair methods, while appropriate for collision work, can also trigger negative Carfax reporting further lowering a hail damaged vehicle's value. Dealer's Hail & Specialty are experts at repairing automotive hail damage to cars of all makes and models.
