If you’ve ever experienced a hailstorm, you know how scary and damaging it can be. And if you’re a car owner, you’re probably wondering if your insurance will cover the cost of repairs. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Here’s everything you need to know about whether your insurance will cover hail damage repair.
First things first, it’s important to understand that not all insurance policies cover hail damage. You’ll need to have comprehensive coverage to ensure your insurance will cover the repairs. Comprehensive coverage protects you from damage that happens to your car that’s outside of your control, such as theft, vandalism, and, of course, hail damage.
Assuming you have comprehensive coverage, your insurance will likely cover the cost of repairs. However, you’ll still be responsible for paying your deductible before the insurance kicks in. The amount of your deductible will depend on your policy and can range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. At Dent Mechanic Group, we waive your deductible so that the repair is completely covered by insurance and there’s no out-of-pocket cost to you.
Once the deductible is taken care of, your insurance will take care of the rest of the repair costs, up to the limit of your policy. It’s important to note that some insurance policies may have a cap on the amount of coverage for hail damage, so make sure to check your policy carefully.
Now, let’s talk about the repair process. You have the option to choose where you want to get your car repaired, and you should choose a reputable repair shop that specializes in hail damage repair. Your insurance company may recommend or have a preferred repair shop, but you’re not required to use them. However, keep in mind that if you choose a repair shop that’s not on your insurance company’s list, you may need to get an estimate from them and have it approved by your insurance company before any work can be done.
Once you’ve chosen a repair shop, they’ll assess the damage and provide an estimate to your insurance company. The insurance company will review the estimate and approve the repairs. Then, the repair shop will begin the work and will bill your insurance company directly.
It’s also important to note – in Texas, it’s illegal for an insurance company to increase your insurance premiums for filing a hail damage claim.
If you have comprehensive coverage, your insurance will likely cover the cost of hail damage repair. You’ll still need to pay your deductible, and there may be limits to your coverage. Choose a reputable repair shop and work with your insurance company to get the repairs done quickly and efficiently. And remember, always check your policy and talk to your insurance company if you have any questions.
