Because we specialize in auto hail dent repair we are able to give customers much better service compared to dealing with "normal" bodyshops or collision centers that do not specialize in auto hail dent repair. Paintless Dent Repair or PDR is the ideal method for repairing vehicle hail damage because it restores the full re-sale or trade in value while preserving the original factory paint job.

☑️ We guarantee 100% satisfaction. All work comes with a LIFETIME WARRANTY.

Insurance company pays: $8,000
Your out of pocket cost : $0
We accept $8,000 as the settlement
We waive your $1,000 deductible

When your insurance company sends you to their recommended shop, you pay your deductible, and that goes straight into the corporations pockets as profit.
You already pay your insurance premiums, and you can't control the weather.
So why should you have to pay more for something that isn't even your fault?
When you come to us for your auto hail damage or dent repair we just agree to fix the dents on your vehicle for whatever the insurance company pays, and waive your deductible (up to $1000).
We pay for your rental car even if you don't have rental coverage on your insurance policy. We absorb these expenses to earn your business.
It is normal for the insurance adjuster to write a very low estimate when you send in pictures of dents especially if you take them in the sunlight with your phone. Some insurance companies also use software to write estimates which is usually inaccurate.
When you take photos of dents in the sunlight, it is impossible to see all the dents. That's why we need the vehicle to come inside our shop so we can look at the hail dents under special PDR lights. Then we circle the damage and photograph every single dent and resubmit photos to your insurance company. This is called a supplement and happens on 90%+ of auto dent repair claims.
Here you can see some examples of what roof replacement and "fill & paint" dent repairs look like a few years down the road.
These were once expensive vehicles that the owners financed and paid a lot of interest on. Then they got hail dents, and the owner went to a bodyshop where they do "conventional dent repair."
Now if the owner goes to resell them, they're going to get less money because the paint looks terrible. Thats why you should get Paintless Dent Repair. PDR makes removing dents much cleaner than stripping the roof off of a vehicle and gluing a new one.
In the factory - automotive paint and finishes are designed to withstand sun exposure and weather.
Outside the factory production facility, aftermarket paint doesn't bond and cure the same to bondo as it does to the metal when applied in a factory production setting. So the finish will wear down in a very short time. This makes the vehicle look bad and lowers the resale or trade in value.
Paint-less dent repair is a superior repair method because it removes dents and preserves the factory finish.
In some cases we can have your vehicle in and out of the shop and dent free in just a couple of days. We will be able to give you a more exact timeframe at your appointment.
Insurance companies like State Farm and Allstate approve hail dent claims more quickly than companies like Progressive and USAA.
In most cases we need your insurance adjuster to come to our shop and re-estimate the vehicle with us present. Inside the shop we put vehicles under special lights to see the dents accurately. We make sure your insurance adjuster counts every dent. Once the adjuster approves a repair estimate, we can begin with the dent repair process.
We can't control how fast your insurance company operates, but we call them every day and ask for updates. Like you, we also want your car back to you as soon as possible.
On average it takes between 2-5 business days, but sometimes it can take longer for your insurance company to send out an adjuster and approve auto hail dent repairs (We cover ALL rental car cost during this time so no matter what you pay ZERO out of pocket).
Some companies like State Farm, Farmers, and All State approve claims within 2 or 3 days. Other companies like Hartford, National General, Progressive, and USAA subcontract their estimate to a third party company, where it can take up to 2 weeks to send an adjuster out. Our team calls your insurance company about your claim every day to move it forward as quickly as possible.
Time to approval also varies depending on the timeline of the storm. In the first couple of weeks in a storm - Progressive and other companies send field adjusters to handle the massive amount of claims. But later in the storm the field adjusters leave to other areas, and Progressive will subcontract to a third party. That's why it's best to file a hail dent repair claim as early as you can. Any time an auto hail damage claim gets subcontracted to a third party estimate customers are looking at 2+ weeks.
Once your insurance adjuster finishes processing the claim, we get something called "Repair Authorization". Once authorized we can begin our dent repair work. On average it takes about 1-3 days to do the labor of fixing the dents, quality inspection, and final preparations before your vehicle is returned to you.
These before and after videos were made at my first shop. We only had a small garage back then, check out our social media for the latest updates and to see our new bigger shop.
These videos show a bunch of vehicles in different stages of the dent repair process. You will be able to see the tools used, how the dents are taken out, and what the cars look like when they are in repair vs finished.
Theres a lot that goes into fixing a dent. Each dent requires hundreds of precise tool pushes at just the right pressure and angle. The dent repair tech has to "read" the PDR light and reshape the metal from both sides until the dent is smoothed out. For a large dent the size of a quarter or half dollar, it can take as much as an hour to get the dent totally removed. So if you have 500+ dents on your vehicle, its not easy to fix!
You don't want some guy thats fresh out of PDR school working at a dealership touching your $50,000+ BMW. You want a veteran PDR guy with 20+ years experience who will really take time to fix ALL the hail dents to absolute perfection. Aaron's Hail Repair specializes in the highly skilled trade of Paint-less Dent Repair, and only people with at LEAST a DECADE of experience are touching your vehicle working on dents.
Saving the factory paint job using paintless dent repair means the value of your investment is saved
Painters in auto body shops just can't achieve the same paint quality as the industrial production factory that makes your vehicle. So Paintless Dent Repair is preferred by customers because the dents are pushed out by hand and there isn't any need for paint, chemicals, or cutting the roof off the car.
Trust me you don't want your expensive nice 2022 SUV repainted. And you definitely don't want to trust that vehicle to just anyone for dent repair.
The headliners and components of all modern vehicles are designed to be removed and installed (called R&I). Dropping the headliner gives the dent tech "access" to the metal of the roof to push the dents out using their metal hand tools.
The dent tech carefully reshapes the metal while looking at lights or line-board to accurately restore the appearance of the surface using thousands of precise "pushes". When they are done, the vehicle will be completely dent free.
On big flat panels with access the tech will "push" the metal using hand tools. But other panels like the rails (or pillars) of the car, or areas where there isn't tool access, require techniques like "glue-pulling" and "blending" to repair dents.
When the repair is finished the metal looks smooth and like new again and all the dents are gone. The original factory paint is preserved. The full resale or trade in value of the vehicle is restored. You won't be able to tell the vehicle was ever in a hail storm.
Roof and hood replacement is most likely unnecessary. Insurance adjusters almost never write a proper estimate.
When the insurance does their estimate at your home, or when you take your vehicle to their recommended estimating location - they might write the estimate "to replace" instead of PDR.
Insurance adjusters don't know what can be fixed with PDR and what can't. Only our dent guys know, that's why we need you to bring your car to us so we can provide our own estimate to your insurance company.
Comprehensive insurance covers things that aren't your fault like vandalism or severe weather.
Hail storms cause dents and that isn't your fault.
Comprehensive is different coverage than collision, which pays for auto accidents caused by you. Insurance companies can't discriminate against people by raising rates due to acts of nature.
Your insurance protects you from hail damage, and you are entitled to use the shop of your choice. There are no repercussions for filing comprehensive claims.
We will do whatever it takes until you are 100% satisfied with outcome,
Even if you move or we move, for as long as you own the vehicle. We have repaired millions of dents on thousands of vehicles and only once or twice has there been a minor issue. Customers will usually notice immediately and get it taken care of.
We have the following quality control procedures in place to make sure that nothing goes wrong with the auto hail repair process.
Having Auto Hail Dents on your vehicle means you have lost a lot of money
Hail dents significantly lower the Kelly Blue Book (KBB) resale or trade-in value of your vehicle. Even just a few very light dents can devalue your vehicle by several thousand dollars. If you are still making payments, your vehicle may be worth less than what you owe on it. Get it fixed for free through us since you already paid for insurance. Then you can sell it for full value.
Auto Hail Dent Repair requires organization and good systems of management to deliver at scale.
Companies that don't specialize in hail repair have to subcontract the PDR (paintless dent repair) to other companies. But when PDR is subcontracted to the lowest bidder it's not up to the highest standard of quality.
A flood of hail damaged vehicles creates chaos in normal auto body shops because they do not specialize in auto hail dent repairs. They are already busy with normal auto collision work, and when they start getting dozens of hail damaged vehicles in their shop, which require a completely different systems to keep track of and fix - quality and service start slipping.
At Aaron's Hail Repair we have to follow up almost daily with your insurance company. If you are one of 100s or 1000s of customers going to some body shop that doesn't have the systems to keep up, your vehicle can end up taking a really long time to get approved.
It can sometimes take weeks or months just to get an appointment at the dealership. The auto hail dent repair subcontractors working at dealerships and big corporate places like Caliber Collision are rushing as fast as they can to push dents and finish cars as quickly as possible.
Our auto hail dent repair technicians do higher quality work.
At Aaron's we don't settle for anything less than perfection when it comes to paintless dent repair.
Would you rather have your car looking smooth and perfect again, or would you settle for small ripples and "weird looking" areas where there used to be dents?
If you take your hail dented vehicle to a non-hail specialist like a dealership or local auto body shop, the result might not be what you are expecting.
The process your insurance asks you to comply with is not required and you can bring in your vehicle to us tomorrow if you want.
You are not required to wait for your insurance company to come out and inspect your auto hail dents. Often insurance companies will tell this to customers in an attempt to delay the auto hail damage repair settlement.
When you bring your vehicle to us for hail dent repair, your insurance adjuster deals with us instead of you. It's kind of like getting a lawyer when you go to court. Having us on your side helps get your case and makes the insurance company settle faster so we can move your vehicle more quickly through the auto hail repair process.
Once the insurance company sees that you have chosen a repair facility and we reach out to them, we are able to get your auto dent repairs expedited faster than you could by dealing with them on your own.
Insurance companies save money when they delay the process as long as possible. So when you deal with them or their recommended auto hail dent repair shop on your own, you won't get the same level of service you get with our company.
You are liable to your insurance company for prior unprepared auto hail dents.
If you get in any kind of minor fender bender or wreck with previous unclaimed auto hail damage, your insurance company will try and total your vehicle. But their settlement will not pay for the hail damage. If you get lucky they might pay you 10-20% of what the hail dents was actually worth had you filed a claim and had an approved estimate.
Your insurance company can total your vehicle, get the hail damage fixed at a wholesale rate, and then actually sell the vehicle for a profit.
Even if you have gap insurance you can still lose thousands of dollars.
You already paid for coverage. The smart thing to do is file a claim and get your auto hail damage repaired.
After a hail storm there can be sometimes hundreds of people that try and bring their cars into the shop in a week. We can only take so many cars before we have to start putting people on a waiting list.
We would rather not put you on a waiting list, so we have trusted partners that are ready to take your vehicle now.
You can expect the same level of 5-star customer service and repair quality from our auto dent repair partners.
Our partners also specialize in auto dent repair and will pay your deductible up to $1000 and provide a rental car at no cost to you.
