Texarkana Auto Hail Repair | DIY, Starter Kits, or Professional Service?
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.
