Texas Body Shops Booked Through November for Hail Repair

Written by Lauren Tropea, CBS 7

It’s been seven months since a historic hail storm pummeled Odessa, TX, leaving both homes and cars with severe damages.

Half a year later, auto body shops are still getting slammed with hail repair orders.

 

“We’re looking at still replacing lots of roofs, quarter panels, hoods, things like that,” said All American Collision Center  of Odessa Auto Body Manager Greg Thomas.


The collision center has 300 cars scheduled for hail repairs between now and November.


“The severity of each car has just been tremendous---average expense is around $10,000,” Thomas said.


Several auto body shops in Odessa have cars scheduled out through August, and they tell us the waiting list is continuing to grow.


If you still need vehicle hail repairs, make sure to get an estimate from the insurance company and have all your paperwork in order.
