Ways to save money when repairing your hail damaged car.
There are a few steps to take when you want to save money on hail damage repairs.
Removing the hail dents from only your hood and leaving the rest of the dents is a good way to save some money. Many customer’s save money this way. At Dent Biz, we will be glad to fix only your hood and nothing else on your car but there are a few things to consider.
a. We can only give you a receipt showing the hood has been repaired. So, in the unlikely event that your car gets caught in another hail storm, your insurance company will not pay you the full amount twice.
b. When you remove the dents in your hood, the dents left behind will look more pronounced. We see this all the time. You get your hood fixed and it looks so good that you have remorse for not getting more panels fixed like your front fenders, front of roof, or doors.
2. Fix all the dents except for the roof.
This is especially good when you have an extended van, suv, or truck roof that is difficult to see. Another option is to fix the dents on the front of the roof and all the sides and leave the bulk of the extended roof dented. This usually works well too for saving money.
3. Leave some of your car’s moldings damaged. Usually there are subtle dents in the moldings that cost a bunch to replace and are barely dented. When you leave them dented, it can save you a lot of money.
At Dent Biz, we will be glad to work with you on all aspects of your hail repair. We understand that you might not want to fix everything. That is perfectly ok with us. You are not the only one that wants to save money. We hear it every day. Give us a call so we can get a better feel for your situation.
