Auto hail damage process

Most insurance companies are ready to handle your claim by simply making a phone call to the claims department or going online to start the claims process. Reference your policy documents to understand how to file a claim and coverage for auto hail damage. Depending on your insurer, some may remove the deductible and send a check for the estimated repair cost.

Your insurance adjuster or an insurance approved repair facility will provide an estimate during the insurance claim process. Auto hail damage repair costs depend on the extent of how much the vehicle was exposed to damage. Therefore, it is possible that a vehicle can be totaled. Your insurance adjuster will determine if it is worth fixing or not. In the case of a total loss your insurance company provides payment to you worth the vehicle’s actual cash value.

Contact your insurance company:  Many vehicle owners do not know when to call the insurance company representative. Don’t wait to contact your insurance company. Giving them the exact details of what happened can present a clear picture, which helps them determine the damage’s extent.
