About the StormWise dent repair cost estimator

What does the estimate include?

This is a calculator for dent repair costs using the paintless dent repair method. It will provide a rough estimate and will not include potential costs associated with parts that need to be replaced, or any labor costs related to disassembling and reassembling the vehicle.

How to use the dent repair cost calculator?

Assess the hail damage carefully to get a more accurate count on the dents. We recommend taking a look at the dents under the shade—ideally in your garage. Looking at the dents in the sunlight can make the dents appear less deep than they really are.

Measure the size of the dents with a Dime, Nickel, Quarter and/or Half-Dollar sized coin. Be sure you start at the very top of where the dent starts. If you can still see the dent by covering it up with a Half Dollar coin, then the dent will be considered 'Oversized'.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you need repair of auto hail damage, getting a fair estimate is almost as important as the repair. Your car insurance company is probably paying for the services. Knowing how hail damage is assessed on a car, and having a quote from a high-quality, independent repair shop can protect yourself against low-ball insurance claims.

In most cases, a hail damage estimate includes the following four parts:

  • Paintless dent repair – the labor and time it takes the technician to actually fix the dents.
  • Remove and Install cost (R&I) – labor cost to remove and install parts on the car as needed to gain access to perform the PDR.
  • Part replacements – Sometimes hail damages parts on the car such as the windshield which will need to be replaced or chrome moldings that are ordered from the manufacturer and replaced.
  • Sales Tax – Colorado only includes sales taxes on vehicles, not on labor costs.

If there is paint damage, you also need to factor in body time, paint time, and paint & material costs.
