hail won't give your car a salvage title unless they total out the car and you buy it back from them... otherwise they just fix it and nobody knows

I've used Dent Magic on Burnet Road, just south of Anderson, amazing results, you absolutely cannot tell the dent was ever there. A friend of mine had his truck caught in a hail storm. They literally took out about 100 dents, not a clue of 1 ever being there.

I just got my car estimated at Farmer's, they totalled it.
It's a 98 civic cx w/ 65K miles, damage is not too bad at all.
I guess they total it because the price of repair is really close to the price of the car.

I will be getting a call soon about the payout.
How much should I be looking to get? Retail or Private Party?

they do pay-outs a little different than if you were selling your car. You should get almost the price of the car.

a car is hardly ever totaled or given a salvage title due to hail damage alone. its a very rare occurance.

You are in for a surprise!!

insurance companies will give blue book price and deduct non-related hail damage (depreciation)
so, you're not going to get much.
Good luck anyways, some insurance co's are better than others.
:D :D :D

I think you would get retail market value.

I got 21K for my 01 prelude 2-3 yrs ago from farmers

Sorry to hear of this wack hailstorm. We seem to have more of them though up here in Lubbock. I hope everything works out well for those that had damages.

I heard the Hudson Bend area got badly pelted by the hail.
Saw a accord from that area, seems like steam roller went to town with it.

Can your mom give discounts? I got a house, 2 cars and a clean driver's record. :D

LOL just depends. i know that with state farm, you can take online defensive driving once a year, not because of a ticket, and it lowers your insurance 15%, but thats only in texas i think.

regarding defensive driving, does the same apply if you're below 25 yrs?
yes, it applies to anyone rated on the policy, that has a valid drivers license. Just talk to your agent about it, though i dont know if it is something that Farmers does.
