How We’ll Fix Your Dents
To begin, we will ensure that we completely remove the dents. This is done with little consideration for the paint, as this will be fixed later, but improper care of the car can lead to more expensive repairs down the road. That’s why it’s important to get dents fixed by a professional and not try to do it yourself.
Depending on where the dent is, we’ll safely disassemble part of your car as needed in order to give us access to the areas of the car that have been dented. From here, we use some of the best tools the market has to offer to gently push the dent outwards in order to get it back to its original position. We’ll make sure the outside of your vehicle is as flat and smooth as it was before the dents.
Finally, we’ll use one of our painting methods in order to repaint the car in such a way that the colors match and the vehicle looks good as new. Once your car has been repainted, we do another look over in order to ensure that there are no missed spots or untreated dents.
We’re so confident in our ability to fix your dents and auto problems that we are offering a warranty on all paint and body work done on your vehicle for as long as you own it. When it comes to individual parts, the manufacturer distributes the warranty; this is out of our control. For more information, feel free to contact us & call at 210-331-7500.
Future Preventative Measures
Once we’ve repaired the dents on your car, we want to make sure that this type of damage doesn’t happen again. In order to further prevent hail from denting your car, do the following:
- Weather Alerts. This is the simplest of tips, but it goes a long way. No one can estimate the weather with 100% accuracy, but modern technology is pretty close. Having an app that notifies you of upcoming storms may be worth the investment, especially in a place like San Antonio.
- Park Indoors. If you do know a storm is coming, or you’re just nervous of snow or rain turning into hail, simply park your vehicle indoors. This will almost guarantee that your car will stay in good condition and avoid any weather-related damage.
- Buy a Cover. If indoor parking isn’t a possibility, keep something in the trunk that you can put over your car in order to give it a layer of protection. While this may not stop some of the largest chunks of hail from damaging your car, it should give the car’s exterior protection against most of the smaller pieces. Fewer dents means better overall structural integrity.
- Have an Emergency Fund. If all else fails, it’s important to be prepared. Set some money aside that you can put towards auto repairs in case the worst happens. While this may not cover the entire cost, it’ll reduce the amount coming out of your pocket.
The weather is unpredictable and uncontrollable. However, the damage done to your car doesn’t have to be. When things go south, and you find yourself with a damaged car, don’t look any further: Elite Collision Repair is 100% fixed on tending to every auto repair need.
