Auto Hail Repair Arvada
Living in Arvada, Co and having hail damage to your vehicle kinda goes hand in hand knowing our history with major hail storms over the last 5 years. Just like anyone, I’m sure you’d like to hurry and get your car repaired by the first repair shop that you come across to get your car back dent free. Before you go drop off your car somewhere be sure to know the differences in the type of hail repair shops that are in the Arvada area. Most shops are going to be in the class of a conventional body shop where cars are towed to after having a collision of some type. These type shops are a necessity in life, but when it comes to hail repair they may not be the best option. Conventional body shops will quickly replace body panels with aftermarket parts at time and then refinish the new parts. You may not mind this, but with a specialized auto hail repair shop we offer the least invasive repair method when it comes to hail repair techniques. When you use a paintless dent repair shop like Auto Hail Repair Pros you won’t have to worry about paint colors matching or clear coat finishes being inconsistent on different areas of your car due to the fact that we are able to massage the dents out from the back side of the panel. Knowing the differences in these two repair processes will keep you in the know and help understand what an overpriced and under priced estimate looks like.
What Differences in Shops Should I Look Out For?
Hail storms in Colorado come in every size and the damage severity is different with each storm cell depending on the size of the hail and the temperature. A few areas have been hit with hail that was so massive that on some car makes its not uncommon to see cracked paint. When that happens we will do PDR to keep away from the need of using body fillers, but the area where the paint is cracked will have to be repainted. If the panel isn’t repaired where the cracked paint is then over time the corrosion from our salted roads will find a nest in that crack and birth a place for rust to compromise your paint job and cause your paint to start lifting. Most hail storms aren’t as severe as those heavy hitters, and hail damage can be repaired with strictly only PDR. This is best case scenario as you won't have to be concerned with matching paint or differences in your clear coat texture. The hail size makes all the difference in costing out a repair.
Another factor in repair cost is your deductible. Don’t know what your deductible is? Don’t worry, if you call the number on the back of your insurance card and give them your policy number they will give it to you for you to keep in your notes. Most deductibles are in the range of $500-$1500 in the Arvada area with some being lower and higher at times.
If mentioning cracked paint due to hail stone size in the above paragraph scared you, rest easy. When we can’t repair a dent fully, 100% with our non intrusive paintless dent repair techniques we use our in house partner to help repair the cracked paint area. At some shops this inconvenience will slow up the process, but at Arvada Auto Hail Repair Pros we work in partnership with Eco Auto Body to keep our efficiency up and ensure that nothing but the best quality repairs are performed on your vehicle.
Not sure of your deductible amount? That’s no problem, give us a call and we’ll find out for you. If your deductible is keeping you from getting your car back looking like new then ask Robert or Kristos about our rental and deductible forgiveness program when you call in. We offer these two programs for your convenience and ease of mind. Plus, being able to keep as much money in your pocket at the end of the day is always a good thing!
What Differences Do I Need To Be Aware of When Shopping around?
Conventional auto body shops and auto hail repair shops in Arvada have a lot of differences in their repair prices for a few reasons. The “per dent” estimating process is the most common pricing method with pdr shops and insurance adjusters as opposed to conventional body shops pricing on a “repair or replace” pricing standard. Having a conventional estimate along with a PDR estimate from a specialized hail repair shop can save you from taking your vehicle to a shop that cuts corners and doesn’t find all of the damage done from a hail storm. Some cars around Arvada can have upwards of 1,000 dents easily, leaving your car or truck in the hands of a service shop that's not specialized to handle hail damage can leave room for dents being missed and you having to bring your car back to be “finished”.
$3,000. That's what the average repair costs to have a PDR tech repair your car is back in 2018. Living on the front range you should be aware of what storms are in the area and what's coming our way. Being able to find your car shelter before any inclement weather could save you thousands, but hey its not everyone's cup of tea to park their car under an overpass just to have “hail security of mind”.
It’s not uncommon for some of our customers to have never been involved in a hail storm. We’re a specialized hail repair shop that focuses solely on PDR repair. We coach our new customers to shop around for at least 3 estimates at other shops in Arvada and ask what they offer to make them better than their competitors. Every auto shop is different in their own ways. At Arvada Auto Hail Repair Pros we put customer satisfaction before anything throughout the repair process. We not only offer our rental and deductible forgiveness programs, but we also give you peace of mind in knowing that your car will have a lifetime warranty when it leaves our shop!
What Kind of Guarantee Does Arvada PDR Pros Give?
I’ve worked in shops all over the country for the last 11 years of my life and for the last 3 years I’ve been working with these guys and I’ve never seen a group of young professionals work together as a family unit and prioritize quality like the technicians that we have on our team. We guarantee our work for as long as you own your vehicle with no questions asked. Our business has grown over the years strictly because of word of mouth referrals from our past customers. The techs here at Arvada Hail Repair strive on perfection, but if there is ever something that comes up or something that you see at anytime you leave our shop with your car please don’t hesitate to give us a call! Our managing staff will make sure you are prioritized and will remedy any concerns you might have!
My Car Has A Factory Warranty? Will It Remain Intact?
Yes! If you choose a specialized hail repair shop like us than you have no worries about keeping your warranty unless we specifically bring it to your attention before the repairs are started. Just understand that paintless dent repair is the only hail repair process that can keep your factory warranty in good standing. Some shops may remove and replace some fender panels and at times doors with aftermarket and salvage parts without your consent. That may be acceptable to some shops, but we don’t believe in doing business like that. Afterall, you and your complete satisfaction is our number one goal at the end of the day. Trust the guys at Arvada Hail Repair Pros to put your car 100% back to pre-storm condition.
