The cost of repair would vary depending on the extent of the damage to your car and the coverage included in your car insurance policy. If your car insurance policy doesn't have coverage to protect you from hailstorm damage, you would have to take your car to an auto body shop and pay for any damage out of pocket. If, on the other hand, you do have the extra coverage that covers hail damage, you'll be responsible for paying your deductible amount once you file a claim and your insurers will cover the rest of the damage cost.
Make sure to consider the extent of damages caused to your car first prior to filing a claim. If you have a higher deductible amount and the damage to your car is minimal (e.g., a few minor dents on the hood of your car), it may not be worth filing a claim — the cost of your deductible may exceed the cost of repairing your car out of pocket. If the damage is more extensive and costly, filing a claim through your insurer may be worth considering. But, if your car's repair costs exceed the value of the car itself (factoring in depreciation), your insurer may declare the car as a Total Loss.
