I don’t have a claim from my insurance company yet. How do I get one?

Answer: Below are the FIVE Easy Steps you need to follow if your vehicle has Hail Damage.

Step 1 – Contact your Insurance Company to file a Hail Claim.

Step 2 – Find out where you are able to get your estimate. Depending on the insurance company policies, they will give you one of three options;

  • You will need to go to their approved estimating drive-in
  • They will send an appraiser to your home for an onsite estimate
  • They will give you your choice of where to get it estimated

Step 3 – Get your hail damage estimate.

  • If your insurance company has their own drive in estimating facility, you will need to take your vehicle there for your approved estimate.
  • If they give you the option of where you would like to have it estimated, you can take it to Redwater Dodge.

Step 4 – Decide where you are going to get your vehicle repaired.

  • Once you have your approved estimate, you may choose where you would like to get your vehicle repaired. The Insurance Company will likely encourage you to use their approved Paintless Dent Repair vendor; however it is your choice where you would like the repairs to be completed. (Ah… Redwater Dodge of Course)

Step 5 – Take Vehicle in for repairs to Redwater Dodge. 🙂

  • Ensure your vendor is using highly skilled staff, and has proper business licensing and permits.  (If you prefer to take your vehicle outside of Redwater, borrow a car from your brother, pick up your car after a few days without the complimentary oil change and complete detail, you certainly can do that too. Just Say’n)
