Hit by supercell, car has severe hail damage
« on: August 15, 2017, 06:12:55 PM »
Someone doesn't like me. :(

Today my hometown has been hit by a supercell with  heavy hail showers.

Unfortunately I've been on my way home and couldn't find any cover.

The car has been severely damaged by the hail ( a lot of dents).  :gaah:

Tomorrow I'll have to talk to my insurance company and hopefully they will pay for it.

I'll Keep you updated.

If you have a collision type insurance, they have to pay for it.
Is the paint damaged?  If not, they can possible fix all of them with paintless dent repair.  We had $7500 worth of hail damage repaired on a Ford F-150 without any repainting.

He's in Germany so the insurance might be a little different than what we are used to here in the states.

Fortunately the insurance works the same way like in the USA. :devil:

On my way to the insurance company I got some gravel on my hood from a passing by truck.  :banghead:

If I ever get the chance to live in the USA I know for sure that this damned car will get a new paint job and it will not be black.  :gaah:

Good luck!  That sucks!  Only body damage or did it break any window or damage the top?

Tried to take some pictures, but somehow the dents are hard to to see on them.  :(

In the moment I've counted 30 small dents (repair $80 for each dent), but I think there will be more.  :gaah:

In addition to that I found a stone chipping, which I got yesterday.  :banghead:

I'm really talented in using a pretty small brush with some paint. :buff:

Hire me! :D

Good news the insurance will pay for the damage. :cool:

Bad news there are much more dents (didn't notice the dents on the door). :(

Found a pretty good dent doctor and the car will be repaired from 28th August till 30th August. :buff:

Yay! Glad it will be covered!  Good luck at the dent doc!

Oops, sorry have been busy at home (built a stairway for the summerhouse). :buff:

I got my car back and it looks like a new one. :devil:

This has been a real good dent doc. :yay:

By the way he told me that it will cost the insurance about $ 4000.
