Some things are just unavoidable. Hail damage is, unfortunately, one of those things, especially in a place like Colorado where the weather can turn quickly and without warning.
Fortunately, repairing hail damage to your car can be done quickly and easily. With the help of a reputable dent repair shop, your car can be repaired to its pre-storm condition. Pro Auto Spa is a leader in paintless dent repair and has been providing high-quality automotive hail repair and appearance service for nearly two decades.
Pro Auto Spa is family-owned, and insurance approved proudly serving Colorado Springs and the Denver Metro Area.  At Pro Auto Spa, we make the paperwork process seem relatively painless.
Before acting on any repair damages, make sure you ask yourself ONE simple question that will save you a ton of time.
If you’ve recently leased your vehicle, you will qualify for the full repair benefits due to the requirement of having COMPREHENSIVE COVERAGE.
If you financed your vehicle, check with your insurance company to see what type of insurance coverage you have.  Chances are that you have full coverage insurance, which includes comprehensive coverage. This means that in the event of hail damage, your insurance company pays for the repairs and does not increase your premiums.
Continue reading to learn more about how having comprehensive coverage allows a customer to pay zero dollars out of pocket with no premium rate increase and rental car assistance.
Our hail damage repair process begins with a free assessment of the hail-damaged vehicle. Your insurance adjuster will work with our estimators to differentiate between pre-existing damage, also known as UPD (unrelated prior damage), and current hail damage. This method is relatively quick, which is usually a half-hour appointment.
If we find that your vehicle has extensive pre-existing damage, we will be more than happy to assist you by writing a separate estimate for this repair. If the UPD is minor, our technicians may just clean it up for you. It obviously depends on the extent of the damage and how easily it can be corrected.
Some customers are nervous about filing a claim for such damage because they have either found the process difficult in the past or have never done it before. Don’t worry! We always help customers through the process of filing a claim. We know this can be daunting for someone who isn’t accustomed to dealing with insurance companies. Because of this, we are more than happy to take on the responsibility so that you don’t have to worry about it.
Keep in mind that hail damage will NOT raise your rates, which is another worry customers often have when they’re considering hail damage repair. UPD or collision repair, on the other hand, may cost you.
If your car suffered other damage and is in need of windshield and mirror repair or plastic bumper repair, we can take care of that as well. These services are often essential in hail damage and PDR repair, and we’ve fixed thousands of windshields and bumpers over the years. We employ only the best glass and bumper technicians and feel confident that we’ll exceed your standards.
There have been a lot of questions and concerns about the deductible. In most situations, Pro Auto Spa will work out a situation where you pay ZERO dollars out of pocket. That seems unbelievable, right? You can literally get your vehicle back to pre-existing storm conditions without paying a dime.
We understand that you have a life to get back to. We want to make sure you don’t skip a beat.  We are partnered with one of the largest rental car companies in the nation and can assist you with getting a rental car. If you qualify, you might be able to get a rental car for FREE.
If you do not have comprehensive coverage through your insurance, chances are you are likely to have to pay out of pocket. It is still financially beneficial to go through a paintless dent repair company versus an auto body shop. However, you now are left with two choices; paying out of pocket or submitting an insurance claim and risk increasing your premium.
We have experienced many situations like this where the customer did not have comprehensive coverage and had to pay out of pocket. If the damages are not significant, it is beneficial to pay out of pocket. The reason being that if your estimated repair is around $2,000, it is better to pay out of pocket rather than paying a $500 deductible with your insurance premium increasing.  It is always good to consult with a certified hail damage company like Pro Auto Spa so that they can assist you through the process.
Pro Auto Spa goes above and beyond to provide quality care for all customers, and has a reputation for excellence. We hope you have a better understanding of how to handle the situation.
If you ever find yourself caught in a storm, or rammed by a shopping cart, rest assured that Pro Auto Spa will be able to utilize PDR and our other aesthetic services to restore your vehicle back to top condition.
Don’t delay! Those dents won’t fix themselves! Bring your car into Pro Auto Spa, and we’ll have it looking like new in no time!
