Hail season can cause unexpected damages for many businesses, and if you don’t have a plan in place, the extra time associated with claims processing could put your business at risk of further financial loss.

 

Hail season is expected to last from mid-April to mid-September in the High Plains Region, with the most damaging storms typically occurring in June. If your business is in the High Plains Region, you should have a plan in place for the hail season. 

 

A preliminary step every business owner should take is checking their roof. In the event of damage, roof repairs can help you avoid extensive, time-consuming cleanup later. While you’re checking your roof, look for curled or missing shingles, as well as holes or any damages that may be present. Auto dealers will face their own challenges against hail storms, but if you have a garage present, we recommend storing your most valuable vehicles indoors to avoid any unnecessary damage during a hail storm.

 

Hail damage isn’t always avoidable though. In the event hail damage occurs to your business, fast, reliable claims processing is a necessity for any business that doesn’t want to increase their financial risk. Our proprietary Eyewitness units help business owners harness barometric, temperature, and other weather-related data 24/7/365. Capturing the unique vibrations of hail and every impact on its own timestamp, Eyewitness determines the kinetic energy and diameter of the hail, offering an unmatched level of hyperlocal insight for your business. Plus, Eyewitness is cost-effective and requires zero maintenance.
