Paintless Dent Repair Questions
What is paintless dent repair?
Paintless Dent Repair involves repairing dents on cars with specialized tools designed to allow a technician to get behind a dent and skillfully push it out. Paintless dent repair is widely used in cities, such as Plano, where destructive hail storms cause damage to cars.
How much does paintless dent repair cost?
The cost of paintless dent repair depends on the kind of dent damage it is, the severity, and the location of the damage. The average cost to fix a small door ding runs between $25-$40 dollars. If the dents are caused by hail damage, the cost depends on how much of the vehicle has been damaged (surface area), the depth of the damage, and the location.

Auto Hail Repair Questions
Can auto hail damage be repaired with paintless dent repair?
Yes, hail damage can be repaired on any type of vehicle, as long the paint hasn’t been damaged or the dent is in a location that can not be assessed by the technician.
Can I remove hail damage myself?
You can try but we highly suggest you leave it to the professionals. Paintless dent repair technicians have been trained on how to remove dents & dings from vehicles. Some have learned their trade at a technical school while others trained as an apprentice at a well-established paintless dent repair shop. Just like any other skill or trade, some amount of training goes into perfecting that talent.
For example, you could search online for a DIY garage building video and spend hundreds of hours and dollars attempting to build the garage of your dreams with some friends and a case of beer and hope nothing goes terribly wrong OR you could hire a team of trained professionals that will come in build a garage with the proper tools, training, and equipment.
In conclusion, we highly suggest you consult with your local paintless dent repair company to perform your repairs. Most local Plano auto hail repair companies offer free inspections. Start by scheduling an appointment and getting an estimate to repair the damage. The cost of paintless dent repair will probably surprise you!

Should I wait until the end of hail season to get my vehicle repaired?
Waiting until the end of hail season may cause further damage to your vehicle, which may not be repairable. Your insurance may also require you to pay a double deductible, should your vehicle get hit again.

You’re one step ahead of the process! Contact one of our trusted hail specialists to schedule your repairs and we’ll have you back on the road in no time!
Will my insurance be affected?
No. Hail damage is recorded as a comprehensive claim and is at no fault to you. Comprehensive claims and ‘random acts of God’ do not affect your policy. Insurance premiums already take into account hail-prone areas and are not computed on a ‘per-insured’ basis. Much the same that home-owners’ policies in Florida already consider the risk of hurricane damage, so does your insurance policy in regards to hail damage.
Do I have to use the paintless dent repair shop my insurance company suggests?
No. Who you choose to repair your vehicle is up to you. You pay for the insurance to be covered in the case of an accident, hail damage incident, or any other weather catastrophe. You do not pay them to make decisions about where your car goes for repairs.
