Hail Damage Repair in Calgary
Minimizing Hail Damage in Calgary

We may love living here, but that means accepting the fact that Calgary can have some mean storms and those storms can kick up some serious hail. Bodily, we can find shelter, but one of our most prized possessions – our vehicles – may not be so lucky. Many a car owner has stepped outside to find their beloved ride victimized by Mother Nature.

If you want to minimize the impact of hail on your car, here are a few tips.


Secure & Covered Parking

Covered parking can save money and stress. Studies have shown the more open space around your car, the more chances are increased hail will severely damage the vehicle. Take a closer look at parking options. If you own a home, consider getting a car port.


Quick Shelter

While you can’t always be prepared for storms – many are sudden – if the option is there, find temporary shelter. The local mall usually has large, indoor parking spaces, or maybe there’s a movie theater with underground parking nearby. If you have to pay a few dollars, so what? It will be cheaper than repairing damage.


Third-party Covering

If a storm’s a-brewing, cover the car. Use heavy blankets and thick comforters that are securely tied down. There are hail car covers designed specifically for this purpose. Hail Protector sells an entire system that can notify you about upcoming storms and early warning hail forecasts, and supplies you with a heavy duty hail cover.


Unfortunately, all the preparation in the world doesn’t guarantee your vehicle will be safe during a hail storm. Fortunately, there’s All Makes Collision, one of Calgary’s top providers of repair when a car’s been damaged by hail.

Anyone living in the Calgary area knows that the weather can turn on a dime, and this can prove particularly devastating to your car. Your vehicle is a substantial financial investment, and hail damage can significantly decrease its value. If you have been impacted, there is hope as hail damage can often be reversed.


Paintless Dent Repair

There is a process in which the majority of dents caused by hail can be removed, and it’s called paintless dent repair. During the process, specialized tools are able to get beneath the paint and essentially “massage” dents from the panels. This allows for its original state to become restored without having to remove your paint job.
