DENVER – People whose cars were damaged in this week’s hail storm – and there are plenty – can get a free ride to an auto body shop, courtesy of ridesharing service Lyft.

The company sent out an email letting customers know about the free ride deal.

Monday’s hail storm caused widespread damage around the Denver metro area, denting cars and breaking windows. To claim a free ride, simply enter ‘HAILHELP’ into the promo code section of the Lyft app.

Lyft also is partnering with certain body shops to offer special rates and services.

There are some limitations to the offer: Rides are limited to one per customer up to $10 and they must start or end at qualifying body shops. The offer is only good until next Thursday, May 18.
