RC repair shops and car dealerships still feeling affects of hail storm


Drivers and car dealerships are still feeling the affects of the hail storm two weeks ago. At Courtesy Subaru in Rapid City most of the cars on the lot were damaged, that's about 200 cars. No car was completely destroyed.

People who work at the dealership say it takes a couple of weeks to get back to normal but they are used to these hail storms.    

"Of course there's vehicles that you have to repair, there's issues with financing because financing a vehicle that has damage is not the easiest thing sometimes. So there's stuff that you have to adjust to, but it's not something that's abnormal for this area," said Travis Vesely, of Courtesy Subaru.

Repair shops are working with insurance companies and catastrophe teams to deal with hail damaged cars. ABRA Auto Body and Glass is completely booked for August to fix cars damaged in the hail storm.  

The General Manager at ABRA says about 80 customers are on the waiting list to get their cars repaired.
