How much it will cost to repair a hail damage at a Hyundai car? Can we pay this reparation at you or can you recommend somebody? My understanding is that I cannot registered a car with a salvage title for hail in MD (I am a student and just arrived here in US)

It would really depend on the extend of the damage. Usually involves doing body work and repaint. You would not be able to register any salvage car (doesn’t matter what damage type is) until you do reconstruction on the vehicle. You would need it fix it and made it road safe and have it inspected by either your local police station or DMV (depending on your location).

Unfortunately, we do not have any body shops we work with directly, so you would have to find someone local in your area. Read more

What does Salvage/Rebuildable title mean?

When a vehicle is involved in an accident, and salvaged by the Insurance Company, it has to be reconstructed before being placed back on the road. After the vehicle is repaired, it`s inspected by an authorized mechanic and certified by the DMV as reconstructed to manufacturer specifications. The DMV issues a `reconstructed` title, which is treated the same way as a “clean” title regarding registration and insurance purposes. Please note www.RideSafely.com does not guarantee that all title denominations can be reconstructed in any particular state or country. Please refer any title questions to your local DMV. Read more
