Hail Damage

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I have had hail damage today on my car (on all the pannels). I have now been on hold for 4hrs waiting for to lodge a claim with NRMA. Another 4 hrs today still no answer.... Went into an NRMA office waited another hour and finally got to launch my claim!

has anybody else had hail damage?

Certainly did Tony - I only got through to the NRMA yesterday! I had 2 cars basically destroyed and one is a 1973 351 Falcon, which the NRMA will more than likely write off along with my 97 EL. I can't get assesed until the 31st December due to the backlog. After calling O'briens for new windscreens i was told there was a two day wait as they had in excess of 500 cars to do! I have to invest in a carport now. The previous week a large eucalypt was hit out front of my house by lightning bringing the tree down on my new mailbox - gotta love the weather! :angry:

Sorry to hear about the damages to your cars, guys... I hope they fix it up (either car, or the payout) ASAP.
I hate waiting for insurance stuff!
Writing off the '73 Falcon would be a tragedy :( (XA or XB? What colour? :wub: )

Just a quick question - what sort of claim do the insurance companies clsouthern end Hail Damage as?
I'm guessing you'd be up for the excess, but what about those policies that have a "driver age" type excess?

Well Kez it's an XA - original ford orange - just had a new 9 inch diff and gearbox and white interior - if anyone has $3000 ONO give me a yell. As for the driver excess, all of those unfortunates will have to pay up - i'm looking at 500 on each car and am over 35.
