RE: [DML] Parking lot collision advice?



  What insurance companies are forgetting nowadays, is that their job 
description is:  to PAY THE BILL!   Take your D to your favorite shop; 
inform her claims adjuster where the car is; the shop sends the adjuster the 
bill; they send a check to the body shop.  That is what the ins. is paid to 
do!   Because people don't know about cars (or... are too lazy) they have 
allowed ins. companies to overstep their job description.  Take control of 
the situation. It is YOUR car. THEY pay the bills.     I have done this- 
including FIRING an ins. "glass broker"-  to the surprise of the adjuster.

I just got back from a long day thought I would take the old D' to the
grocery store.  Its my daily driver and stays outside in my condo
parking lot.  I was getting ready to get in the car and I took a look
at my windshield and see a little note saying, "I bumped your car,
sorry".  Luckily she left a name and phone number.  I quickly grabbed
my flashlight to assess the damage, and I almost cried, I couldn't
believe all that could happen in a parking lot. the pics are present
on the photoalbum "17167 vender bender"  She must have been driving a
really low car too.   I don't know, its after midnight so I will call
her tomorrow to work out the details.  I've never had to work with an
insurance company before over the D, but My plan is to request the
driver's insurace and make a claim to her insurance company.  I am
sure they are going to try to have someone locally do something, and I
worry that won't yield acceptable results.  I know classic body shops
could paint the fascia and take out "dings" but there is a fair crease
in the quater panel now.  If anyone else has had a simmilar incident
or any advice regarding working with the insurance company to be sure
it gets fixed properly, I would really like to hear it.  (e-mail me
off list if you have a lot to say) jpalatinus@xxxxxxxxx
