After the Storm

A Step by Step Guide to Hail Damage Repair

For Texans, hailstorms are an all-too-familiar force of nature, capable of wreaking havoc on property. Whether you're a long-time resident or new to the Lone Star State, dealing with the aftermath of a hailstorm can be an unsettling experience. One of the most common casualties of these storms is vehicle damage, leaving car owners grappling with the question: "How do I get my hail-damaged vehicle repaired?" Let's embark on a journey through repairing hail damage on your vehicle featuring guidance tailored to the Texan experience. From contacting insurance companies to selecting the right repair shop, we'll navigate the road to restoration together, ensuring you're prepared to face the next Texas-sized hailstorm confidently.

After discovering hail damage on your vehicle, the first crucial step is contacting your insurance company and promptly establishing a claim. This action sets the wheels in motion and puts you on the path to resolution. Upon reaching your insurance provider, they will assign a claim number, a crucial piece of information you'll need when connecting with repair shops.

With your claim established, the next move is to choose a reputable repair shop, like After The Storm AutoworX, and schedule an appointment for a damage assessment and initial estimate. Here's where the process becomes incredibly straightforward, as After The Storm employs the same estimator tool as insurance companies. The seamless transition allows you to step back while the assessment unfolds. Throughout the process, the shop keeps you well-informed, granting you a reassuring sense of control.

Once your vehicle is in the capable hands of the shop, technicians will thoroughly inspect the damage and provide the insurance company with an initial estimate or, if necessary, a supplemental estimate, should the initial insurance assessment fall short of the actual damages. If your insurance policy includes rental coverage, arranging a rental vehicle becomes essential, a service After The Storm is more than willing to perform. In cases without rental coverage, the shop often goes the extra mile, offering one of their vehicles as a courtesy, ensuring you can manage your day-to-day tasks seamlessly. Repairs commence once insurance reviews and approves the necessary work.

The repair timeline can vary, ranging from a swift one-day turnaround to a more extensive process lasting several weeks, depending on the extent of the damage and whether any paintwork is needed. Unlike many other hail repair shops, After The Storm boasts an in-house paint facility, offering a level of convenience that sets them apart. Once the repairs are completed, you'll receive a call from the shop notifying you that your fully restored vehicle is ready for pickup.

Repairing hail damage in the heart of Texas can be navigated smoothly with the proper knowledge. From that initial call to your insurance company to the final pickup of your vehicle, After The Storm and their customer-centric approach are here to make the journey as straightforward as the wide-open Texas skies. So, when the next Texas-sized hailstorm comes your way, you can rest assured knowing you're well-prepared to face it with confidence.

After The Storm AutoworX is located at 800 Fulgham Road, Suite 25, Plano, TX 75093. For more information, visit their website at or call (833) 442-4534.
