What to Do After a Hail Storm
Start by collecting as much information as you can on the accident. You will need to be thorough and pay attention to detail. Collect information such as:
- Clear photos of the damage (no dust or shadows obstructing the dent)
- Suspected license plate numbers. Look for signs like poor parking or stray shopping carts.
Next, contact your insurance provider. This is where the information you took down before will come in handy. Make sure you describe all of the damage in detail, and remember to provide the pictures you took if they ask. This information is invaluable in developing an accurate quote; however, they will likely want to see the damage in person anyway. Sometimes you may even decide against an insurance claim if your deductible is greater than the cost of the damage.
Lastly, you can start looking for the perfect Texarkana paintless repair crew. Make sure your search is thorough and educated. Word of mouth is always your best asset. Also, don’t be afraid to ask friends and family for recommendations too. When it comes to the technician ask about their experience and equipment. You wouldn’t want someone that is out of practice or doesn’t use top quality tools.
