Hello and thank you for taking a moment to learn about paintless hail repair and our company HailRepairAZ.com
You are undoubtedly reading this because you have a door ding that constantly catches your eye or hail damage on your vehicle as a result of driving through a storm or being caught in one here in Southern Arizona.
Until the storms in 2015, many Tucsonans couldn’t remember our last hailstorm in 2001. When hail strikes Arizona, folks here don’t really know what to do other than to call their insurance company and take their vehicle where they are told, which is usually a traditional body shop. Unless there is a good hail Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) tech at that shop, often the dents are filled with bondo and panels are repaired and replaced painting much of the vehicle. This will always diminish the value of the vehicle and in the case of filling dents on the horizontal surfaces (like your hood, roof and trunk lid), is an unethical repair. The sun will heat up and expand the filled dents which will eventually crack. If that panel is hit again with an impact or hail, it will literally crumble. When we are working in a severe storm where parts are unavailable because of national back orders, we have ways of “pushing a panel for paint” so no filler is needed. Body shops love working with an experienced hail tech because we are used to working on “hammered” panels, we can quickly push them to avoid repaint which helps ease their backlog.
My technicians and I have vast experience and recommendations from shops across the country for all types of door dings and hail repair. Hail repair technicians have a distinct advantage over a door ding tech. A good hail tech will have invested in advanced dent LED lights and large selection of tools to access dents everywhere on the vehicle without drilling holes or damaging paint and panels. We are used to proficiently removing hundreds of dents of all sizes from each panel as opposed to working a few dents on a panel and making it look better. We promise that you will not see where we worked. Each panel will be better than pre-storm condition, including minor door dings, which we clean up as part of a complete hail repair with no cost to our clients and customers.
So, if you discover a ding, or your unfortunate enough to be caught in a hailstorm, just notify your insurance carrier, then just give me a call and we can take it from there. If your insurance adjuster underwrites the estimate, don’t worry, we supplement 90% of the vehicles we fix. Also, it’s good to note that comprehensive insurance claims do NOT raise your rates. Rates are raised by zip code after hail, flood, tornado or any act of God.
My name is Brendan Maddock. My family has been in business in Tucson since 1974. My father’s company, Maddock Machinery Corporation, has been building and repairing trucks and heavy equipment in Tucson for over 45 years. I worked in construction most of my life until the recession of 2008, when I was very fortunate to have some friends in paintless dent repair (PDR) willing to mentor me.
After working and training with Dents on Demand in Texas and Oklahoma for almost five years, I worked in Denver for Complete Paint and Body (a Progressive Concierge facility) for four months until the end of 2014. I was then given the position of National Hail Tech Coordinator for Autohail.com and Dentrepair.com in 2014. We worked in New Mexico and in Tucson in 2015. Our shop was located on Palo Verde and Ajo Rd, where we fixed seventy cars for Tucson residents and several local body shops.
In April of 2016 I ran Autohail Complete Paint and Body Repair in Wylie Texas for eighteen months, until the city demolished our building due to the severity of damage from 8” diameter hail. The Wylie storm is widely considered to be the worst hailstorm in recent US history. We saved one hundred and sixty cars from totaling and learned a great deal about the conventional paint and body side of the hail repair industry.
In late 2017 we set up in Great Bend Kansas and fixed 30 cars for Kansas residents.
Then in the spring of 2018, Rockwall Texas got hit. Rockwall is very close to Wylie (DFW) so I worked with Dents on Demand to repair existing clients vehicles in the area. After fixing 20 cars, Carrollton Texas got hit in late June. Autohail LLC worked with Auto Collision Body Repair in the DFW until the of middle October in 2018.
On October 21st and 23rd of 2018 Sahuarita and Green Valley, Arizona had a significant storm. I had been working with Precision Toyota Certified Collision Center in the off season for over a year doing door dings and PDR. Precision’s shop has been rated as the #1 Toyota certified collision shop in nation for many years. They have the highest standards for quality. Because of the amount of work here in Tucson, I was given this opportunity to work directly with this amazing shop here in my hometown.
I could no longer continue to run Autohail.com across the country, so I started HailRepairAZ.com LLC, and we have worked with Precision Toyota to repair 40 vehicles here in Tucson. A lot of the vehicles here had cracked paint from large shots of hail. Precision Toyota
Collision Center uses only the highest quality waterborne paint in the finest facility bar none in Southern Arizona.
Because of similar levels of workmanship, quality, and integrity the union of our PDR and Precision Toyota’s conventional repair has created a great collaboration. We have consistently repaired every vehicle, well in advance of the estimated scheduled days to repair and have had perfect reviews from all of our mutual clients.
