Are there ways to repair hail damage on your car?

There are a few ways to repair your hail damaged car that will not require a trip to see us at Marlborough Ford. During the Spring storm season, we want you to know that the service team here at Marlborough Ford is prepared to repair your hail damaged vehicle!


If you think you have light hail damage, you can try to park your car in the sun, using it as a natural oven to expand the metal. Obviously, the longer your vehicle is in the sun, the better it will work.

If spring weather isn’t cooperating and you need to manufacture some heat, a normal hair dryer would work just fine. The hair dryer shouldn’t be held too close to the vehicle — keep it about a hand’s distance away. Touching the hot ends of the hair dryer on the paint could damage it.

Dent kits can be useful for a few dings. You can find a dent repair kit at pretty much any auto store. But if your vehicle has been through a hailstorm, we would recommend that you take it to a professional.

With spring right around the corner, the chance for a hail increases! We want folks near Calgary AB to know that we can repair hail damage!

    A tiny hail storm can wreak havoc on the vehicle. And if I am not wrong, I think only a certified auto mechanic can erase the dents caused by the wrecking storm. However, the fact is, finding an authorized car service center is an intimidating quest. You have to take referrals from your friends, and do an extensive research to spot a trustworthy service point . Once you spot, you can take your hail-battered speed machine to the repair center to remove all the evidence of the damaging storm.

    One of the ways to repair the hail damage in our car is paint-less dent repair. Paint- less dent repair entails special dent removal tools to effectively push out the dent from underneath the body panel. We can access to the underside of the dent by removing the necessary trims. Using a dent removal tool, we can pull the dent outward. Another method of repairing hail damage on our car is by using body filler. Whatever may be the method, we have to perform it taking the help of an experienced technician.
