Summer hailstorms: Why you don’t need to worry


Summer is finally here and with it come the long-awaited sunny days, road trips and lots of fun on four wheels. But wait! There is one thing you should know about: Hailstorms. These forces of nature can suddenly appear on a sunny day and wreak havoc on your beloved car. But don’t panic! In this blog post, you’ll learn everything you need to know about hailstorms in summer and why you don’t have to worry thanks to our insurance.

Why are hailstorms particularly mean in summer?

Summer is actually the time for ice cream, beach parties and sunbathing. But unfortunately it is also the time when hailstorms occur particularly frequently. The higher temperatures ensure that the thunderstorm cells can rise higher in the atmosphere. And the higher they rise, the larger the hailstones become. In some regions, the hailstones can take on truly gigantic proportions and cause serious damage to your car.

The threat to your car:

How can hailstorms damage your car?

Imagine that: Your car is parked outside, the sky suddenly darkens and then it starts – hailstones as big as golf balls pelt down on your poor car. The result? Dents, scratches and maybe even broken windows. The bodywork, roof, bonnet and windscreen are particularly vulnerable to these relentless icy projectiles. After a violent hailstorm, your car could look like a jigsaw puzzle of dents.
