Parts of western Massachusetts saw some hail Tuesday, and that could mean a trip to the body shop.
Hail can leave numerous dents on your car, and Cahillane Auto Body in Northampton told 22News repairs could cost thousands, and take days to weeks to fix.
If the vehicle needs painting on top of dent removal, it will take longer and cost more and leaving the dents could be a problem.
Cahillane Auto Body Assistant Manager Alex Petieth told 22News, “Even if you went to trade it in, they’re going to assess the damage and they’re going to want it fixed either way. If we had to paint a hail damaged car, we’re looking at seven grand or eight grand, and paintless dent removal three grand to five grand.”
The auto body shop said most insurance will cover hail damage.
