The underside of the hail damaged panels, which are accessed through a variety of points on each vehicle, are massaged and flexed or otherwise “pushed’ until the panels return to their original shape. This practice is performed in lieu of simply covering the dents and dings up with filler and paint. This process is known as “paintless dent repair” and is commonly referred to as PDR.
It is a common misconception that all claims made through an insurance policy affect your premiums, this is simply not the case. It is ILLEGAL for insurance companies to do that in Colorado. Many of the people who are affected by hail damage are initially hesitant to get their damaged vehicles repaired due to the stigma of insurance rates increasing. If you have comprehensive coverage on you auto policy, this covers the damage incurred by “Acts of God” or “Acts of Nature”, such as hail, wind, tornadoes, and other natural disasters. These claims WILL NOT affect your coverage or rates.
