Take it to a body shop that you want to use. Do not use one that they tell you. It is your right to have your shop look at it and have them deal directly with their insurance company...
This is the ABSOLUTE LAST PLACE I would take my Wrangler to be repaired if mine were damaged.take it to a dealer. most insurances will cover the dealer making the repairs. thats would i would do.
Good luck with thatBe sure to get your Insurance to request the Diminished Value added into the repair costs.
Lol, rushing to write you a check. Here in KY you send it to a shop of your choice and the at-fault party deals with them, paying as more problems are found.Does anyone have a rough estimate on what it's going to cost to get this fixed? The other driver was at fault, and their insurance is trying to rush me in to accepting a check. I just wanna know how bad they are going to try to screw me. Thanks!
The laws for diminished value vary from state to state and the OP should seek whatever remedies are available in his/her state. Your experience is not relevant.Diminished value only applies when you sell the vehicle. It also will cost about $400.00 to have an appraisal performed. Been through this with USAA.
We are both in Texas and I did lots of research on the subject. Insurance won’t simply pay diminished value since the expectation is that the vehicle repairs are done correctly so no real loss to the owner. It’s in their dna to make things difficult. The longer you keep the vehicle the less the diminished value money you receive due to the loss of value year to year. I am not shocked that people chimed in based on a headline without any knowledge on the topic.The laws for diminished value vary from state to state and the OP should seek whatever remedies are available in his/her state.
