According to DCCHail, the DCCScan has the ability to inspect and document automotive hail damage under an average of five seconds per scan. This greatly increases efficiency during the appraisal process. This technology takes the guesswork and human error out of hail estimating by documenting the number and size of dents on both the top and side panels of a vehicle.
Artificial intelligence is incorporated in DCCScans operating system and gives paintless dent repairers the ability to scan any make or model of vehicle without the need for a baseline scan of an undamaged vehicle. DCCScan can also be used for many applications outside of hail damage estimating. A few additional applications include Pre/Post repair prior damage inspections and rental car delivery/return damage inspections.
There are two versions of DCCScan for their customers and partners. The first version is for brick and mortar locations and is not intended to be moved regularly. The second version is designed to be used in more mobile situations and gives the user more location flexibility.
DCCScan can provide multiple options for report generation. paper copies, electronic versions, and system to system integration are available for some estimating programs. DCCScan is fully integrated with DCCHail’s proprietary estimating and job management system, PDRmax to provide full PDR estimates using multiple pricing guidelines.

TipFor light damage after a storm, call us directly instead of filing a claim.
With dealerships who have suffered damage to inventory as result of hail storms, our biggest benefit is our dedication to ensuring your business continues to run with as little interruption as possible to avoid missing sales opportunities. To do this, we start with focusing on sold units that need to be done ASAP, then on to working with the insurance company on behalf of the dealership to take care of all estimating.
TipAsk us how you can track progress of your PDR jobs online.
We work closely with insurers in developing detailed hail response protocols to make DCC Hail an integrated partner, for routine hail events or large-scale claims. As part of the hail response protocol we can provide a claim drive location, logistical support, and highly skilled PDR technicians. We operate a network of drive-in paintless dent repair facilities and a rapid-response trailer.
TipAsk us about paperless electronic claim management and auditing.
Body shops are already busy with their day-to-day collision work, so the additional workflow caused by hail storms can easily push a shop over capacity. This is where DCC Hail fits in to assist with the additional hail damage workflow. The existing business continues to run normally and the risk of losing customers due to long wait times is reduced.

Strip old finish around each dent, patch area with a filler compound, laboriously and meticulously sand to match panel contour, then colour-match, mask, prime and repaint!
It's a great process for collision repair, but for hail damage it's not cost-effective.
Automotive paint is incredibly resilient, and flexible enough to allow a skilled technician to guide body panels back to factory contours.
It takes a lot of practice and a good eye for detail. After a DCC Hail paintless dent repair, you cannot tell a new panel from one previously damaged.
It's hard to evaluate the workmanship and quality of a conventional patch-and-paint repair job. Will it last?

Because conventional body shop repair requires a series of dedicated resources, such as the paint stage, it's hard to predict a "done" time.
Your vehicle is in a queue with all the other vehicles under repair. Usually, many different specialists work on your vehicle.
There are only three steps to paintless dent repair: remove trim, reverse dents, replace trim. They can all be done by the same technician.How Does PDR Work?
Most shops do not have anybody on-staff to keep you updated about progress.
If you're lucky, you can reach the shop manager to get an estimate of when your car is ready.

DCC Hail was born in 2001 after there became a need for paintless dent repair (PDR) technicians in a non-traditional way. Most PDR companies at the time serviced their local car dealerships, auctions and retail markets with a "door knock" type of service. These companies do not have the expertise, manpower and time to meet the demand after a catastrophic hailstorm. DCC Hail was established to meet those needs and demands.
We have not only worked across Canada but also in over 18 states in the USA, five areas in Western Europe and Australia. We currently have working relationships with over 80 shops across Canada, our main operating market. The demand for qualified PDR hail technicians has increased tenfold over the last five years as insurance companies and customers are demanding and mandating it and as a result, quality paintless dent repairs are becoming the focus.
With over 30 million dents fixed, DCC Hail is where you want to turn for all your automotive hail damage repair needs. We have over 100 years of experience with a crew of technicians dedicated to giving you the highest quality PDR repairs. If hail hits your city, ask your local shop for paintless dent repair by DCC Hail to ensure your car is in good hands.
