This is a question we are frequently asked at IntelliDent Paintless Dent Repair. We had a client call us from a dealership and inquire about Paintless Dent Repair cost for a truck that was sitting in the used lot.
Questions to ask before buying automobile with hail damage
There are many questions that should be asked when considering purchasing a vehicle with existing hail damage. Below we have listed a few.
- Why wasn’t the hail damage repaired before you put it on the lot to sell?
- Can I get fully insured on a car or truck that has been damaged by a hail storm?<
- Before I purchase this car or truck, can I take it to a Paintless Dent Repair shop to get an estimation for fixing the hail damage?
- Is the Hail Damage reported on the Carfax?
IntelliDent suggest that when you are looking to buy a vehicle, it is a good idea to shop during daylight hours, when it hasn’t snowed, and when you can closely inspect the vehicle for any hail damage, dings and scratches.
Before you make any kind of offer, make sure you get the vehicle inspected by a reputable 3rd party who can access how much it will cost to remove the dents. Once you get the estimate, make sure you negotiate with the dealership to reduce the cost of the vehicle.
Feel free to contact one of our Paintless Dent Repair specialists if you have any additional questions or would like to schedule an appointment to get your vehicle accessed for damages. All IntelliDent estimation appointments are complimentary whether you decide to get your damages repaired with us or not.
