Local body shop still repairing hail damage from November storm

As hail is once again in the forecast Wednesday

EL PASO, Texas - With hail in the forecast for parts of the Borderland Wednesday, it brings back memories of a large hail storm in November that caused plenty of damage.

Pronto Body Shop in Central El Paso is still working on cars dinged and dented from that storm months ago.

 "Everyday of the work week we've had a hail damaged car to work on," repair specialist at Pronto Body Shop Colin Bieschke said.

He says hail repairs can be a long and expensive process.

Tiffany Menefee is the owner of Pronto Body Shop. She says you can expect to pay between $2,500 to $8,500 on repairs depending on the extent of damage.

Menefee says when big hail storms, like the one in November, roll in so do scammers.

"You always want to check the reviews, check with the Better Business Bureau and make sure it's a reputable company with good reviews online," Menefee said.

She says it's very important to make sure not to try and do the work yourself.

"Unless you've worked in the industry I've never seen a home repair go well," Menefee said.

If you do not have access to a garage or some kind of covering, Menefee says there is little you can do to protect your car.
