My car has hail damage.

I was at school in Irving on Tuesday when we had a tornado warning and watch.
After going outside to check my car, it had really bad dents. No broken windows fortunately.


Now I've called an insurer to come look at the damage this Saturday.
I'm wondering if he decides to repair and repaint the car, could we be allowed to paint it another color? It's satin silver right now. I was thinking of asking them to do the white or black color. I need to pull up the color codes.

Re: My car has hail damage.

If you get the car repainted - yes they can do a different color. But don't expect it to be a "high quality" job. Unless you would be willing to talk to the shop after the quote is written up (if the quote allows for a new paintjob) and pay a little extra for a proper job.

Unless you don't care about door jams/window trim getting removed etc. A good paint job is more expensive than the average value of our cars.

Re: My car has hail damage.

Your lucky you don't live in Kansas we get so much hail here its ridiculous!
Most of the Salvage title cars here are simply because they got hail damage and the insurance calls it a total loss so people just get new cars with the money that the insurance gives them. Kinda sad really but what can you do.
So many good Imports with salvage titles

Re: My car has hail damage.

I live on campus in Richardson.... we had hail a little smaller than golf balls. I've been stalling on going out and checking on my baby. Last years snowpocalypse already hurt enough... also, I only have liability. So no hail damage coverage. Not that I know of anyways.

Re: My car has hail damage.

I see. Well, they may possibly write-off the car too. If it happens, I'm looking into getting a 300ZX. :p
o either situation for me is a win-win. But I'd prefer to keep my car. So many memories. T_T
