Summer has officially arrived! While this is a very exciting time in both Texas and Colorado, we also know that summer brings plenty of hail and storms to “hail alley” — including car hail damage.
If you end up getting caught in any hail storms this spring or summer, don’t fret! Our team of experienced car hail repair professionals is here to help you solve all of your vehicle’s dent problems.
The Go-To Car Hail Repair Shop — AJ’s Dent
AJ’s Dent has two convenient locations in hail alley — one in Denver and another in the Dallas/Fort Worth/Tarrant County region. We understand just how frustrating hail storms can be when they appear out of nowhere and leave unsightly dents to your car, which is why we go the extra mile for our clients and provide them with the professional paintless dent repair (PDR) services they deserve. Our highly trained and experienced technicians utilize a set of unique tools that are specifically tailored to access dents from the backside of the metal panel of your vehicle. Once that panel is accessed, a technician will slowly work the dent out by massaging and pushing to reshape and restore your vehicle back to its pre-damaged condition.
Why Choose PDR for Car Hail Damage?
PDR is the top choice for those who have experienced car hail damage due to the fact that it completely restores and repairs your vehicle back to its original condition, rather than covering up the dents with paint and fillers the way that traditional dent repair is done. This helps with both maintaining the value of your vehicle and saving quite a chunk of money.
Paintless dent repair is also typically much quicker than having work done at a traditional body repair shop, allowing us to get you on your way faster, without compromising the quality of work. If you are in need of a vehicle while your car is getting repaired, we do provide you with a vehicle to use until we can return yours back to you.
Tips for Protecting Your Car from Hail Damage
While many hail storms come out of nowhere, being proactive can always help to reduce your chances of experiencing hail damage and needing car hail repair. Some ways you can decrease your chances include:
- Park in a garage or a covered driveway whenever possible. While this may not always be an option for everyone, try and find a spot where your car is at least somewhat covered if possible.
- Keep an eye out for covered public parking when you are out and about or going to work. When a storm is approaching fast and you don’t have a garage at home that will provide coverage for your car, you will know just where you can take your vehicle (and maybe get some errands out of the way while you are at it!).
- If you know a storm is approaching and don’t know of a convenient, covered area to park your car, park it on the opposite side of a large building. While it may not shield your vehicle entirely, parking your car on the east side of a building when the storm is coming from the west can at least provide you with some protection and hopefully keep your vehicle safe from the worst part of the storm. Plus, if the wind gusts are strong enough, the building may be able to shield your car very well from car hail damage.
- If all else fails, locate as many old blankets as you can and lay them over your vehicle. Then, tape them down with duct tape while being careful not to put the tape directly onto your vehicle. This may sound odd, but it has helped individuals protect their cars from experiencing hail damage. You could also purchase a car cover which provides a little bit of a barrier between your car and the weather as well.
If you end up not being so lucky this summer, you know the team to call. Car hail repair is our specialty, although we see a wide range of dents that we can fix with paintless dent repair. Give us a call in Denver or Dallas/Fort Worth today and get your car back to new in no time!
