Auto body question
« on: December 21, 2017, 11:29:31 AM »
Well last Saturday my truck tried to park itself in my parents garage by sliding down their driveway.  I have a buddy that has all the stuff to fix the damage, but what I am wondering is what my insurance company is going to value the damage at.  I am meeting with my insurance company's approved body shop tomorrow to assess the cost.  Anyone with experience with this have an opinion want to make sure I don't get low balled? 


Thanks,
Matt

Dang, to bad its two tone. White take off beds start at about $1200. Easy to swap.

Take it a local body shop and get a qoute, probably get an idea of cost that way.  You aren't under any obligation to have the body shop do the work just because they provide a quote.

I like this route he's taking....not wasting people's time by having them write estimates knowing he won't have them do the work. His insurance company probably has an adjuster that will come look at it and write a sheet on it that they will work off of anyway.

I have called a handful of shops around here and only one said they would look at it without getting the job.  And about 3/4 of them only do insurance claims when I was asking about painting my truck after the body work is done, so they essentially didn’t want my business.  Which is why I am asking the fine people of hunt wa for opinions.  I have been able to get so much good information on other things reading posts I figured the has to be someone here who will have some valuable insight.

I think the problem with them painting after the body work is done somewhere else is they’re unsure of the quality of the work done before they get to it. If they have to put their name on the paint, they want to make sure everything leading up to that point is done right. No offense intended.

The reason I love this site.  That didn’t cross my mind, but can totally understand.  I would have thought that is something that the paint people could tell by looking at, and if it sucked they would say that it need fixed.
