Vehicle repair require paintless dent repair or panel body repair companies. The process of paintless hail dent removal or PDR is now required by most insurance companies as a prequisite quote prior to moving on to panel repair companies. PDR technicians use special tools and skills to reverse the dents without damaging paint which would otherwise require respraying or removing the panels.

Hailstones of the giant category are almost always spawned by Supercells that consist of strong, rotating updraughts. These storms are efficient in that they maintain themselves for usually over an hour and even up to several hours. However, sometimes when the lower level winds are ideal, supercells can and have produced tornadoes. Tornado events in recent times include Elsmore NSW tornado on November 6th 1989, Booleroo tornado early November 1992, Merimbula tornado 16th April 1995, 3 tornadoes reported on 29th September 1996, November 3rd and November 5th 2000, Nelson Bay tornadoes 18th November 2001, and most recently Niangala Tornado 13th October 2002. This most recent tornado at Niangala destroyed a double brick house and displaced a man on another property 30 metres from where he was standing. The path of destruction was about 100 metres path as the tornado cut a swathe of destruction in forest.
