Be Careful Using the Insurance’s Lowest Bidder for Hail Damage Repair

Dents and dings on your car caused by a hail storm are categorized as hail damage. Hail is precipitation that involves small balls of ice descending from the clouds at a rapid velocity. Since these chunks of ice fall from a great height quickly, they can cause significant damage to your car. Get this damage fixed as soon as possible via paintless dent repair.

What Is Paintless Dent Repair?

Paintless dent repair is a non-invasive method for fixing dents in a car. Paintless dent repair can fix any dents so long as the paint is not scratched on the surface of these dents. It is very convenient and inexpensive, so many people opt for this dent repair method. Furthermore, any expense via paintless dent repair is also covered by insurance companies. 

Why are PDR Estimates More than Expected?

If you want to get your car fixed using PDR, you may be tempted to send auto-shop pictures of the car so you can get an estimate. These bids are according to the damage which is visible to the auto-technicians at the time. The visible damage can change according to the quality and angles of pictures you can send in.  It would be best if you didn’t rely on these bids. 

Once you take your car into the garage, you may find that the certified technicians provide you with a higher insurance bid. You may find yourself backing out of this bid since it’s so much more costly than the bids that the other auto-shops on the internet gave to you. 

However, you may not want to back out due to the price or bid being high. The technicians at the shop can see dents which those on the internet are not able to see. You may ask another shop for a consultation, to be sure. However, you’re likely to notice that they don’t provide you with a much different answer either. 

Why Should You Not Look for the Lowest Bid?

If you’re looking for the lowest bid or estimate, you should ensure that the shop offering the estimate is reputable. If they don’t do PDR for hail damage, all of your research is just wasted effort. The lowest bid can cost you more in the long run since they can make matters worse. 

Instead, your priority should be going to an auto shop that you trust to see if they conduct PDR and can fix your car.

Benefits of PDR for Hail Damage

1. It’s inexpensive

Hail damage covers the entire body of your car. Getting it fixed without PDR would mean you have to replace the entire panel, which can be expensive.

2. It saves time.

Replacing the entire panel to a car is a time-consuming job. With PDR, your vehicle will likely be away for a few hours.

3. It is convenient 

You don’t have to worry about some irreparable damage being done to your car since PDR is not invasive. None of the internal workings of your car will be at risk.
