Does Car Insurance Cover Hail Damage?

Hail on the ground
If you live near Bloomfield or Farmington Hills, one thing you can count on is unpredictable weather. And the winter snow, ice, and hail can be a particular challenge. This may leave you wondering, “Does car insurance cover hail damage?” The answer depends on the type of coverage you have on your vehicle. Make sure you have the coverage you need, with our insurance overview.

Does Insurance Cover Hail Damage to a Car?

It might if you have the right coverage. If you opted to carry just liability for your used or new Honda, hail damage won’t be covered. On the other hand, storm and hail damage will be covered if you chose to carry comprehensive coverage instead. If you have a collision policy, you most likely comprehensive coverage as well, but you will want to speak with your insurance provider to confirm the details of your policy.

What Does Full Car Insurance Cover?

If you have a full comprehensive policy you will be protected against a lot more than an unfortunate fender bender in Southfield. Along with protection from storm and hail damaged, a comprehensive policy can provide a financial safeguard in the event of:

  • Theft
  • Vandalism
  • Damage from hitting an animal
  • And more

Basic liability won’t cover any of these issues. It’s also worth noting that if you financed your vehicle, the lender may require you to carry comprehensive and collision coverage until your auto loan is paid off.

Will I Have to Pay a Deductible?

Yes, unless you have purchased or leased from Tamaroff Honda Normally, the deductible is paid, then the insurance company will cover the rest of your repair costs. But if you have purchased or leased a vehicle from us,  you can take advantage of the Family Collision Deductible Reimbursement Plan, where we reimburse up to $500 towards your deductible.

Importance of Repairing Hail Damage

Body damage not only reduces the value of your vehicle, but can cause future problems as well. If the paint is knicked, your vehicle could begin to rust in those spots as it is exposed to the elements. A cracked windshield can pose a danger by both reducing visibility while driving, and breaking suddenly if the crack hasn’t been addressed.
