OUR SOLUTION FOR HAIL DAMAGED VEHICLES
As we mentioned, we specialize in paintless dent repair here at Dent Mechanic Group. Paintless dent repair is specifically designed to address dents caused by hail. These small, yet unsightly dents can pock your car, leaving it looking lackluster, and depleting the value of the vehicle. Fortunately, paintless dent repair is the perfect solution for hail-caused dents. Here’s why:
The Perfect Solution For Hail Dents
Hail damage is unlike other dents that may occur in an collision. Why? Well, hail isn’t (usually) powerful enough to crumple the body of a vehicle. Unlike an auto accident, hail damage barely deforms the surface of your vehicle. Sure, it’s noticeable and undesirable, but it doesn’t actually affect the integrity of the paint on your vehicle.
With an auto accident, on the other hand, your vehicle body will endure damage to the extent where the paint fails, and the metal of the body — be it steel or aluminum — is exposed. When you can see exposed metal, or when you have a dent with sharp angles, it is too irreparable for paintless dent repair. The body part must be replaced instead.
Now, with hail damage, paintless dent repair is (we’ve said it before), the perfect solution. Paintless dent repair corrects dents with precision, while maintaining the integrity of the factory paint. That’s good news since your factory coat is the most consistent coat of paint that your car will ever see — assuming that you don’t haul the thing off for a full-body paint job. Paintless dent repair offers a litany of benefits over body work. Here are a few to consider:
Dent Repair Materials Are A Cover Up
Dent repair materials, like Bondo®, are designed to cover up dents instead of fixing them. Unless these repairs performed by a professional and followed up with an expert paint job, your vehicle still won’t look the same as it did when you took it off the factory line. If you’re about to attempt a repair yourself, take caution. You need a handful of tools for the job, and botching the work could leave you with a body part that you’ll have to replace anyways. Paintless dent repair doesn’t cover up the problem — it fixes it.
Body shops can take weeks, if not months to complete a project. Often, body mechanics have to order out a part to replace sections of your body. So, you’re left waiting for a part while your car sits idly by.
Paintless dent repair is faster… Far faster. With Dent Mechanic Group, you can expect turnaround times to be less than a week. Since we don’t have to replace anything and we don’t have to paint anything, repairs take little time in comparison with other body jobs.
As we mentioned, you’ll never get a more consistent coat of paint than fresh from the factory. Factory paint is applied by machines which are specifically designed to spray perfectly uniform coats of paint that are a perfectly uniform color. When you opt to replace and coat your vehicle’s body, you can end up with a mismatched panel — that’s not just ugly and annoying, it can be a costly issue should you opt to sell your car down the road. That brings us to our next point…
Paintless dent repairs are usually cheaper than other body repairs or body part replacement — and paintless dent repair is always more affordable with Dent Mechanic Group. We strive to provide affordable pricing for our services, and we cover up to $500 of your deductible. That’s right. So if your insurance company is pushing you towards a body shop that they work with, know that Dent Mechanic Group is the best option for you (and your wallet). Also, if you’d like, we can talk to your insurance provider on your behalf; just ask us.
Hail Doesn’t Just Strike Once
While body work may be perfectly suitable for a crumpled bumper, hail damage doesn’t just affect one part of the car body. It’ll likely hit them all. That means you can either repair or replace every panel of your vehicle’s body. We think the choice is obvious, but we’re partial to paintless dent repair.
No Carfax Report
When you opt for paintless dent repair, Carfax won’t pull a report or they may only report “high-quality repairs”. That means that your vehicle will retain more value than it would if you had other types of body work. If you do opt to have another form of body work performed on your vehicle, any body work that exceeds $500 in cost will automatically be reported to Carfax and other vehicle history providers.

How Does Paintless Dent Repair Work?
If you’ve never heard of paintless dent repair, you may be asking yourself, how does it work? How can dents be repaired without invasive body work? Paintless dent repair is a completely different process than other body work. We utilize specialized tools to coax dents back into shape. These tools are specifically designed to slide behind the body panels of your vehicle. Using various paintless dent repair tools, your technician will massage dents back to their former position.
We also utilize lighting to check the accuracy of every dent that we fix. Light reveals any imperfections across the surface of your vehicle, especially when we view the body components at a shallow angle.
