Were you recently in a collision? Are you worried about how your auto insurance company might evaluate the damages? If you’ve just incurred minor damage, such as dents or scratches, your insurance will typically fund those repairs. In more severe collisions, however, your insurance provider may declare your vehicle is completely totaled—even if it doesn’t appear to be.

Your vehicle should be a thing of pride, and this is shown by a perfect exterior surface. This is why it's so annoying when something causes that surface to be dented.

When a storm damages your vehicle, the resulting dents and breakage follow a pattern that is much different from that of a regular car accident. Often, the damage is concentrated on the upward-facing parts of the car, such as the roof, hood, and trunk lid. You may also have parts sheared right off the vehicle. The mirrors are some of the most susceptible, but your bumpers and header panels are also vulnerable.
