It’s important to know all your options and rights when it comes to auto dent removal services. Working with your insurance company is tricky, but let us be the first to tell you that you have the right to choose your auto repair service!
Auto Body Shops and Insurance Companies
Insurance companies often partner with body shops in every state. This helps bring in traffic to those body shops. All too often, we have customers coming to us after getting an expensive and time-consuming repair from a body shop. With all our cost solutions, our customers are left wondering why had they been sent to a body shop by their insurance companies in the first place!
Most of the time, a phone call to your insurance company is intimidating. It can feel like they’re doing you a favor by paying the damage done to your vehicle. In reality, you really shouldn’t be intimidated at all. If anything, you’ve been paying them a monthly premium that is used for this exact reason–a claim towards hail damage!
After spending hours in filing your claim, your insurance company will find a location near you for your auto dent removal. But when you ask about another hail repair facility that’s NOT their affiliate body shop, you’re met with the same stubbornness our customers experienced.
The same typical response from insurance companies happen time and time again:
“You can’t use that shop.” or “We can’t find that shop.”
But, we’re here to tell you that you definitely can use us and they can find us on a map! The act of pushing you towards one of their partnered body shops is called insurance steering, and it’s federally prohibited and punishable by a major fine under the 1963 Federal Consent Decree. Because of this law, it’s your right to choose what repair facility you want to use.
Yes, It’s Your Choice To Choose Where You Go For Repairs
So now that you know what insurance steering is, it’s important to know that it’s ultimately up to you to decide where your car goes. Body shops are expensive because their car dent removal services include replacing new parts and this can add up.
Insurance companies should be someone you trust and turn to during these times. Unfortunately, they’re great at twisting the truth to manipulate what they want. But luckily, we know how to handle these companies to get the most out of your experience.
And, if you’ve already filed with your insurance company, that’s okay! It’s still important to know what your rights are.
Choose Your Auto Dent Removal
Instead of having your insurance companies choose where you go for your hail damage, you should be the one to decide that for yourself!
Unlike most body shops, over here at Hail Specialists, we use and specialize in Paintless Dent Repair, which is also known as PDR for short. This is an innovative method that doesn’t require sanding your car or filling in dents. Instead, our technicians are able to reach the back of each panel to massage the dents! By using PDR, we guarantee you a fast 1-3 day repair process. And while body shops can take weeks to schedule an appointment, we offer same-day appointments.
You have the legal right to use us for your hail repair. When you work with us, we offer:
- Free vehicle pick up/drop off.
- Free hail damage insurance claim filing.
- 100% acceptance rate across 50+ insurance companies.
- $0 out-of-pocket cost.
- $0 deductible cost on your end.
- Lifetime warranty.
- COVID-safe environment.
