I’m gonna guess you didn’t see where I said the entire door will need to be replaced.
I'm not sure what to think of my current insurance co.Switched from State Farm because they must have thought I would pay more every yr for the privilege of having them despite having spotless record. So I switched to Countrywide. Saving me money but the daughter had a minor fender bender at very low speed, Total damage to her car was a 6x6 inch piece of plastic punched out of her grill by his tlr hitch. She took pics of hers but not his. He assured her he didnt see any damage dont worry. Then the insurance co gets a close to 3 grand estimate to fix his car, supposedly his bumper is pushed down, Asked mine if they were going to inspect it before paying which they say they did but I'm not convinced they didnt just want to run the cash register up on my daughters policy.
Every company is different.
I’ve had two different cars hit and my rate hasn’t changed because I wasn’t at fault.
If you wonder why Pick-a-Part junkyards are thriving, you have your answer. Good mechanics - not parts-replacers - will find one and install it, making sure the paints matches yours.
It also depends on the type of side view mirror. Those that adjust electrially will obviously cost more.
Got a call today from a guy with my insurance company who will be coming out to see the damage because the estimate is over $2,000.
After 1 week in the shop, I finally have my car back!
Total cost for repairs.... $3,121.24!
They did an awesome job with the repairs and paint. I’m happy.
The most difficult part for me was using a car that wasn’t keyless. Starting the car remotely was another feature I missed.
Whelp, unless anyone has any questions, that concludes this thread.
You drive a "plastic Pig" and you pay big bucks to fix it.
I find it hard to believe that the mirror base destroyed the set template. One is plastic the other is metal. I suppose it's not impossible but it sure as hell is unlikely.
10% of the cost of the entire vehicle.
A few years ago a hail storm his my sister's work. She had a few visible dents in her hood. Told her to file an insurance claim. Once they put it under the light, her few dents were 100's of them. If it hadn't been a new car, they would have totaled it. Insurance paid a fortune to have them all pulled.
