In this case a body shop is needed to complete this repair.  We helped minimize work for the body shop in this repair by using our glue pulling method to pull this damage out for the body shop so they do not have to use any body fillers or bondo to fill this damaged area. After we pulled out the damaged area all the body shop needs to do now is sand the area down flat  to remove the damaged paint area then apply primer to smooth the area out then paint the panel.

Sometimes when damage is caused in a vehicle the paint is scratched. Sometimes the impact item can scratch all the way through the layers of paint all the way down the to bare metal! In this video example this customer was about to turn his leased Infiniti back into the dealership. We discussed with him his damage and brought up that he should do some research on what type of damage is ok to be in his vehicle when it is turned in. Lease agreements often have certain things the dealership will NOT charge you for.

Tips For Buying Brandon Hail Damaged Car

Tips For Buying Brandon Hail Damaged Car

When hailstorms strike, some car buyers become interested in buying Brandon hail damaged cars. However, is this really a wise decision? Some experts say that there are some important things that should be considered.

Should You Buy Brandon Hail Damaged Car

If you are looking for a nice discount, then Brandon hail damaged cars can be a great option. However, you should be cautious while inspecting the vehicle. Be sure to get some advice from your automotive technician, insurance agent and lender before making a decision.

Pros And Cons of Buying Brandon Hail Damaged Car

Undoubtedly, one of the major reasons why people buy Brandon hail damaged cars is because of the low price. Consider yourself lucky if you can pick up a vehicle that is only slightly damaged for a fraction of the price. This is because dealerships are out to make a profit. In other words, they are selling damaged cars because they aren’t worth repairing.

Most drivers would believe that the engine and interior part of the vehicle is still in good condition. However, if the damage broke paint or windows there is a possibility of interior, rust, and electric damage.

Buying a Brandon hail damaged car might be appealing, but you should also consider the cost of its repairs. If the damage is extensive, then most probably the cost of the repair might be too expensive. However, if you are willing to drive around in a hail damaged car, then you could be getting a real bargain. Another important thing to consider is the difficulty of obtaining insurance coverage. Most insurance providers will require you get the vehicle repaired before providing any coverage.

What To Look For

If you are buying a Brandon hail damaged car from a dealer, ask your insurer if you can still obtain comprehensive coverage. Inquire from your lender if they can finance a hail damaged car, in case you are buying the vehicle through financing. Check the car thoroughly for any cracks in the glass or paint. Interior damage is your worst nightmare when it comes to buying Brandon hail damaged cars.
