Did you know that hail damage on your car can lower its value? If you’re selling your car or looking to buy a new one, it’s important to understand how hail damage will affect you when it comes time to sell or trade-in.
What is Hail Damage?
Hail damage is a type of percussive damage that occurs when hailstones hit your car. This is one of the most common types of weather-related damage that can happen to your car, especially if you live in an area prone to storms, like Dallas-Fort Worth. The hailstones can cause dents or cracks in your car’s paint, which can lead to rust and other problems. If you have hail damage on your car, it’s important to get it repaired as soon as possible to avoid further damage.
How Does Hail Damage Affect My Vehicle’s Value?
Hail damage immediately devalues your car. If you go to trade-in or sell your car, your vehicle can be worth significantly less money. Additionally, if you get in an accident while your car still has hail damage and your car is deemed a total loss, the amount of money it would take to repair the existing hail damage will be subtracted from your insurance check. Therefore, you could walk away with less money just because you didn’t get your hail damage fixed.
Should I Get My Car Repaired After a Hail Storm?
The answer is yes, as soon as possible. Whether you’re looking to trade in your vehicle soon or not, you don’t want to miss out on those thousands of dollars of value. Car and weather-related accidents are unpredictable and can severely reduce your car’s value because it had prior, unrepaired hail damage — which could have been repaired at no cost to you with Dent Mechanic Group.
Is Hail Damage Covered by Auto Insurance?
Auto insurance is meant to cover the costs of damage to your vehicle. If you have comprehensive coverage, your insurance company should cover the cost of hail damage to your vehicle.
