Is there an easy way to locate Hail Damaged vehicles for sale?

I am in the body repair industry. For side work, I look for vehicles that Auto Dealers may have taken in on trade recently with Hail Damage and repair them for resale. Usually I can find these vehicles in back of the dealership waiting to be sent to auction. However, they are few and far between. I am looking for an easier and more efficient way to locate Hail Damaged vehicles over a larger geographical area. You have to be a registered dealer to access online auction sites or to access their properties. Gotta be an easier way...

I doubt there is a hail-damage clearinghouse but then again it is a crazy world.I wouldn't call it easy but my plan would be to target the areas of the country that get the most damaging hail (Tornado Alley). Browse yellow pages very easy online or the old fashion way at a public library. Try Tulsa Oklahoma for example and contact all the used car dealerships. In fact you may be able to buy a whole lot in one bulk discount. Also when weather channel reports damaging hail (not predicted but has video after the fact) in an area consider running a follow-up ad in that locale's newspaper. People that experienced the damage may respond. Last but not least, make contact with insurance agents- get a business card made up and let them know to contact you and get in business with them.Good Luck.
