April showers may bring May flowers, but they can also bring some pretty severe weather. Hail season can last from Mid-April to as late as Mid-August, producing hail as small as pea and as large as a baseball. Plus, whether it’s the size of a veggie or a fastball, it can fall at speeds as fast as 100 mph, so it’s no wonder 60% of average annual storm losses in the U.S. come from hail. If you’re ever a part of this 60%, here are a few tips to help you figure out what comes next when it comes to repairs.
- Call your insurance company immediately to report the damage.
- Discuss your repair with your local Caliber Collision location. Some damage may need to be hammered and painted, but some can be removed with less invasive paintless dent repair.
- Make accommodations for a rental car located at or near your local Caliber Collision center. Severe storms can bring a lot of people into our shops that sometimes require a longer than normal wait time on your vehicle’s repairs.
Unexpected damages are never fun, but with the right body repair shop, they don’t have to be painful. Caliber Collision is consistently ranked high in customer satisfaction, so when hail happens, come on in and we’ll get you back to the rhythm of your life.
