Protecting your car against hail damage is a must, especially with the unpredictable South African weather. Did you know you can do this with Scratch and Dent Insurance from Bidvest Insurance?
While the best way to protect your car from hail damage is to park it undercover or in a garage when your area is expecting hail, sometimes this is not always possible. This is why you need Scratch and Dent Insurance from Bidvest Insurance.
Hail storms in South Africa
Hail storms are sporadic. It is often quite difficult for weather services to predict the possibility of a hail storm. While it is generally easier to predict hail using radar and satellite services, the predictability is limited to short periods of time. You may only find out about the possibility of a hail storm before it’s too late.
Many insurance companies in South Africa send hail warning notifications to their clients, notifying them that there is a high chance of a hail storm. It is, however, not always possible to move your car.
