Benefits of using PDR to fix hail damage at L&D Auto Specialists

PDR is the best way to keep your vehicle in good shape. Paintless dent repair can fix major dents caused by hail damage, minor dings, broken glass, and everything in between, while preserving the intrinsic value of your car. Some of its benefits are:

  • Lifetime warranty comes standard
  • We work with your insurance company and coordinate a rental vehicle for you
  • PDR is more cost-effective than traditional dent repair
  • Little-to-no repainting or body filler used
  • Vehicle retains original paint and color
  • Quicker turnaround time than any non-certified collision facility

How is paintless dent repair and hail damage repair done?

Techs at L&D Auto Specialists use special tools to gently push back the metal without discoloring the factory paint. Our first step is to fully inspect your car to determine the best way to gain access behind the damaged area. Start from the outside and slowly massage the dent away. By applying no body filler or additional paint, your vehicle keeps its value and color-matching issues are eliminated.

How long does hail damage car repair take?

This depends on the extent of the repairs that must be made. Hail damage to a car usually leaves dents around the body of the car that need to be repaired. We can often complete car repairs due to hail damage within two days; however, keep in mind that we will also need to get a precise diagnosis and estimate from your insurance company, so additional time may be necessary. Still, our top priority is making sure you're back on the road quickly and efficiently.

Do I get a warranty with the repair?

We offer our clients a lifetime warranty on all services, including hail damage repair. Your warranty is valid for as long as you own your vehicle.

Will filing a hail claim make my insurance rates go up?

9 out of 10 times, the answer is no. The damage caused by hail comes from an act of nature and therefore is out of your control. In some instances, this may not be the case. For instance, if you have a high number of claims in a certain time frame. To be sure, always rely on your agent for confirmation.

When is hail season in De Soto KS?

In Kansas, hail season usually lasts from spring to fall, but storms can occur all year long due to the higher humidity and warm weather. As soon as a hail storm strikes, it is very rapid and quite traumatic. The following steps will help you get through the experience as safely and with the least damage to your vehicle as possible.

  • You should take cover if you are driving through severe weather and hail begins to fall. This may sound like common sense, but hail storms can be frightening. The reaction of many is to try to drive ahead of a hail storm. In case you are unable to get to the cover, park safely. Stay in your car! If you get hit by hail, you may end up getting hurt. Sometimes very badly.
  • A hailstorm is too dangerous to try and outrun. The damage to your vehicle will probably worsen if you prolong the event. You are unlikely to beat the weather. You are likely to get into a collision.
  • You should check your vehicle after a hail storm before driving. Hail damage will result in damaged windshields, damaged tail lamps, as well as hanging pieces that could become projectiles once you start driving again.
  • Lastly, get your vehicle assessed by a reputable professional such as L&D Auto Specialists.
