Paintless Dent Removal Specialists DFW

Next Gen Auto
Hail Repair

I’m Jake, and I’m glad you landed here.

In short, welcome to Next Gen Auto Hail Repair – the business I started in 2021.

I have spent the last 10+ years developing, honing, and mastering the art of paintless dent repair to start my own PDR company Fort Worth would be proud to call its own.

Next Gen has served hundreds of great folks around DFW looking for paintless dent repair work, and I’m proud of where we are headed as we become the best paintless dent repair company Fort Worth has ever seen.

Growing up as the son of an auto body man, I always felt like the body shop had a family-style appeal to me, and my goal is to keep that tradition alive with all of our staff and customers.

Customer satisfaction is our highest priority, and we back that by being quality-driven, friendly, and honest in all our repairs. Come see what sets us apart!

As I mentioned earlier, I grew up helping my dad in his body shop and have been hooked on cars ever since.

He fixed, painted, and repaired collision damage at his shop for 25 years before his interest was piqued by paintless dent repair.

He devoted himself to learning the skill and proceeded to teach me everything he knew about the trade.  

Eventually, I would spend all my summers in high school learning how to dismantle his cars so he could repair them, then put them back together so we could return them to his clients in like-new condition. Boy was it rewarding to see their faces when they got their vehicle back looking new again!

I kept training, and by my senior year of high school, I was assisting my dad by performing paintless dent repair work myself and helping him deliver vehicles even faster. 

I have now been in this industry for over 10 years and continue to learn and hone my craft so I can better serve the Next Gen team, my great clients, and my amazing family.

Michelle, my wife, and our kiddos keep me grounded through all the stresses of each hail season. I don’t know what I would do without them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Paintless Dent Repair (PDR for short) skillfully removes hail dents, door dings, creases, and damage without bondo, fillers, sanding, refinishing, or repainting. Next Gen utilizes this technique to restore your vehicle’s value in a cost-efficient and speedy manner.

YES! It is simple and beneficial to make a hail damage claim with your insurance provider. Here’s why: hail damage is covered by comprehensive insurance, and by law, won’t impact your claim history or rates, but make sure you check with your particular insurance agent. Whenever possible, utilize your insurance you’ve been paying for to restore your vehicle’s value (perfect for reselling or trading-in later on) and pay zero out of pocket with our deductible assistance program.

Costs typically range from $70 to $150 per dent, depending on factors such as size, location, and intensity. Hail damage repair requires skillful expertise and advanced training, which is why at Next Gen Auto Hail Repair, we only recruit the best technicians. Our world-class team and cutting-edge tools ensure your vehicle is restored to its original state without conventional paint or bodywork, preserving your vehicle’s integrity and factory finish.

Often, yes! With our Deductible Assistance Program, we are usually able to help you cover 100% of the restoration costs working alongside your insurance, meaning you pay $0 out of pocket and $0 of your deductible. To see if you qualify for our program, call us today!

In some cases, it can be 100% free for you. Here’s how that works: You pay monthly for insurance (as required by law), and your insurance company funds the repairs when you make a hail claim. Making a hail claim won’t harm your record or change your rates since it is considered an act of God. When your insurance company pays out for the claim, they retain the deductible amount and expect our shop to collect it from you. However, with our Deductible Assistance Program, we are often able to waive 100% of your deductible, which means you won’t pay anything out of your own pocket. That’s a great deal! Who wants to get their vehicle fixed for free? 

We strongly advise against this. Pocketing the claim money instead of repairing your hail damage might be tempting, but future claims can be denied by your insurance company due to existing damage. Worse yet, trade-in and resale values plummet for hail damaged vehicles, which can cost you more than the repairs. To prevent potential out-of-pocket costs, simply have your hail damage fixed by Next Gen. We will manage the entire process, start to finish and get your vehicle value restored.
