How Long do Hail Repair Take on Cars?

If you live in a place that receives a lot of hail, you have likely heard about dent repair for hail damage. Hail is precipitation that falls from the sky in the form of ice chunks. These chunks of ice fall at such a speed and height that they can cause very significant dents in the body of a car. Hail repair is used to fix such damage. 

Many people use PDR for hail damage.

What Is PDR, and How Can You Use it For Hail Damage?

PDR or paintless dent repair, s a non-invasive procedure that involves using specialist tools and techniques to fix your car. However, PDR has a condition. For PDR, the impact must not have upset the paint of the car’s body. This condition must be met before your technician will agree to conduct your body. Using another method for hail damage would be time-consuming and expensive, so PDR is a better alternative. Otherwise, since hail damage is so present and spread out, you may find it will be a nuisance for you to fix.

What are the Benefits of Using PDR?

Paintless Dent Repair has many benefits, as mentioned before. We will list some of these benefits below:

1. Insurance companies will pay for PDR

Car insurance companies have many policies when it comes to what they’re willing to return money for. However, they’re willing to pay for PDR. Therefore, you don’t have to pay this money out of your pocket and you’ll have more for your monthly expense.

2. It is effortless. 

All you need to do for PDR to be conducted on your vehicle is to take your vehicle into the auto-shop. Once you do that, the PDR technicians will handle all they need to. You’ll have your car back in no time.

3.  It is environmentally friendly

If you’re environmentally conscious, you know that paint is harmful and not environmentally friendly.  PDR doesn’t use paint which means it’s better for the environment.

The process is simple. You take your car into the auto-shop. A certified auto-technician will likely fix your vehicle in a matter of hours. The technician checks if the car qualifies for PDR, and they give you an estimate. Then, you can take the following steps:
