A Single Hailstorm Can Total Your Car!

Every year millions of cars get written off due to the damage done by hailstorms. Even if the insurance company decides to cover for damages, the car is valued at least 20 percent less. It is no joyous moment to see your prized possession get destroyed in front of your eyes while you stand there helplessly.

This exact situation led a father and son to develop HAILSUIT. It's no fancy and complicated piece of tech but a simple inflatable emergency protective cover. It will always be there to protect your car from hailstone damage. The average size of a hailstone can range from 60mm to 2.3 inches. In the worst-case scenario, it can be like putting your car under raining golf balls. The least possible damage hailstones can do is to make the body of your worthless due to small dents.

The question that arises here is whether you would like to stand under a shade and stare helplessly at your car getting dented and its windows getting cracked? OR would you like to have a bag in the trunk of your car that has an inflatable cover that you can put on within 5 to 10 minutes?

It doesn’t matter if you own a prized exotic or a minivan that costs you your family’s savings, every car needs to be protected equally from hailstones damage. This is why HAILSUIT can be ordered tailor-made for every vehicle make and model.

HAILSUIT will be there for you through every hailstorm whenever and wherever you need it. An average hailstorm can be resisted easily as HAILSUIT can keep your car protected for up to four hours. Not to forget it is a reusable product.

It's best to do an ever-ready and trusty investment rather than to pay when the damage is done.

The thunderstorm came with hail and little rain.

Climate damage Extreme weather causes 360 million euros in damage every year. Insurers and KNMI want to be able to provide better warnings and advice.

1-10-2021 : If nothing is done, the damage will have doubled by 2050

Government also involved in Broad Weather Insurance Insurers and KNMI join forces in the fight against climate damage. The differences per province are shown. For instance, in Limburg and Brabant there is more damage from heavy hailstorms. Just like the hailsuit app, an increasingly finely-meshed warning system for extreme weather is being developed so that not all of the Netherlands is warned about hailstorms but only the region for which they are predicted. https://www.nrc.nl/nieuws/2021/02/22/verzekeraars-en-knmi-samen-tegen-klimaatschade-a4032807
