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

The reconstruction process is simple and straight forward, but varies somewhat from state to state.

Then the DMV will issue you a title. The last step is to register and insure the vehicle to be driven on the roads. Please verify the exact procedures with your state`s DMV.
