Throughout your journey as a proud vehicle owner you will come across a multitude of obstacles that challenge your knowledge and preparation. Prior to a hail storm there are many steps you can take to minimize damage to the body of your vehicle. (Read up on hail damage prevention tips here.) While it is certainly better to avoid any damage altogether, sometimes that simply isn’t an option. When you get caught in a hail storm, seek out shelter for you and your vehicle immediately. Then you can begin your search for a Texarkana paintless repair expert today!
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.
Your factory paint job is one of the few aspects of your vehicle that can never be restored or replaced. Body shop repairs cannot match the paint quality or protection that manufacturer coats offer. That’s why potential buyers value it so highly. If you want to get the full worth of your vehicle when it’s time to trade in, make sure you protect that beautiful factory finish.
Texarkana Auto Hail Repair
But what do you do when your car is struck with hail? Believe it or not, all of those little dents scattered around the surface of your car are just that: individual dents. They can be tackled the same way as any other minor ding on your ride.
So what auto hail repair method should you try?
Many driver’s first Texarkana auto hail repair option is online tutorials. Thanks to the age of connection, we can share information from anywhere in the world in a matter of seconds. The prospect of repairing your own car for completely free is almost too good to pass up. However, the trade off could be far worse than you expect. The destruction from a poor repair job is often more difficult to fix than the initial damage. Additionally, an untrained hand can quickly force a dent and crack the paint, meaning we likely can’t fix your damage at all. So, unless you are a trained professional, we highly advise against DIY techniques.
Store Bought Kits
Secondly, you may be tempted by store bought tools with catchy taglines like “completely vanish” or “in under 30 minutes!” They seem promising at first, and they aren’t poor quality tools, but no repair kit will ever make you a PDR expert. It takes years of practice to achieve professional skill, and years more to perfect it. If you’re serious about practicing, then we do recommend purchasing a professional kit. However, you should never practice on your own vehicle or a friends. Instead, buy some metal panels or an old rustbucket.
When it comes to the safety of your car and its future value, professional Texarkana auto hail repair services are always the best way to go. While it may not be as close to ‘free’ as, say a DIY method, it is certainly the most affordable dent removal service available. Many choose PDR over other methods for our incredible turnaround times as well. Most auto hail repair jobs take anywhere from a few hours to several days depending on the damage. The same damage would take a body shop a week or more.
Despite its explosive popularity, paintless dent repair has been around as long as the first street cars. It was used as a way to repair vehicles in production lines to prepare them for shipping and resale (It was difficult to sell a damaged car, even back then.) This basic process only used a tablespoon to press the dents back into place, and has since evolved to include professional training and equipment. Now, the industry is booming more than ever, and Texarkana small dent repair techs can repair most kinds of minor body damage.
What Causes a Minor Dent?
In order to start repairing a dent, we first need to know where it came from; and what kind of damage it has done. Small dents can come from a number of sources that each have a large impact on how we decide to remove it:
Hail storms are a drivers worst nightmare. If you thought one small dent was bad, try dozens of tiny craters all over the surface of your car. Hail damage can mean much more than just a few unsightly blemishes. The damage left by hail stones is actually considerable and, if large enough, can even cause serious harm to the integrity of your vehicle. One of the most common disasters we see accompany a recent hail storm is interior electrical damage. Large hail stones can crack paint and break windows on impact leaving your interior exposed. The hail then melts and leaks into the most fragile parts of your vehicle.
Crowded parking lots and garages create an environment that attracts small dents like a magnet. Oblivious passengers and excited children open their doors quickly, bumping the car next to them, and creating a ding or crease. Normally, these kinds of dents are no problem to fix; but sometimes they can create sharp valleys that are not easy to get rid of.
Many drivers think that collision damage, no matter what, has to be repaired by a body shop; however, in the case of low speed bumper or fender benders they can often be fixed for a fraction of the price paintlessly.
The cause of the door dent can reveal a lot about what kind of damage it has done, and how well we can repair it. For instance, if your car was struck by a small rock on the freeway, the resulting damage could be very sharp, thus difficult to remove. Wider dents caused by slow collisions, child passengers, careless shoppers, and other everyday inconveniences are the easiest to repair. They are the most common, and usually happen right in the middle of a panel. Take notice of how your dent happened. This information can be invaluable during the Texarkana door dent removal process.
Can We Fix It?
The most important part about repairing a dent is knowing whether or not it is possible. Fixing a dent relies on a variety of factors. If you attempt to repair a dent that is too tough, or in a place that is too difficult to access you could end up with further damage to your car. Therefore, we always start with the two most important elements of a repairable dent: Size and Position.
Size – Normally, large dents aren’t difficult to repair supposing the paint is intact. However, if they have caused extensive damage there could be a problem. The most important piece of the puzzle is depth. Small dents with a deep center are especially difficult to fix since the metal is stretched thin, and is prone to tearing.
Position – The location of the dent is arguably more important than the size. In most cases, we need access to the back of the dent in order to remove it. If the damage is in a place like the edge of a door panel it could be impossible to reach. Not to mention the tightness of the metal in these spots makes it hard to reshape.
