I new have some extra firewood.

Damn tree backed into me. 3 estimates each within $100 of each other. Cost to repair, replace, blend into door and hood, clear coat, etc. Just a tad under $1400 - paying out of pocket as I don't want the 'ding' on the insurance. Best part was my wife saying, "You just shouldn't have anything nice."

That's why we don't have any nice things! I hear that too. Just get it fixed and it won't happen again. Damn trees and bird's heads falling off!

Ouch!!
You might check with your insurance agent. If he is really working for you he will give the honest answer about future insurance raises.
I once had a similar claim and my agent said that with my past good record I could probably have at least 2 more claims before it would hurt me.

IT'S ALL DOWNHILL FROM HERE

@Wacked

I call it brush pile #4 . Brush piles 1-3 have been established for a while now.... The bigger logs are on the firewood pile.

I still can't believe the owner of the collision center had 5 different shades of the same number Metallic Blue . That's why he recommended the blend instead of just putting on a new fender.

I've probably backed that trailer into the driveway maybe 100 -500 times before this. I just took it for granted.

Don't feel bad. First day on the my last seasonal winter job (ski area) the general manager backed into my bumper. I couldn't believe how much it bent up. He had no damage (Subaru Outback). $1500 ( 7 parts had to be replaced).

When I was ready to sell my last truck the rocker panels on both passenger doors were caved in, estimates were over 2K. Found a couple doors at a junkyard with the same paint code and they matched just fine. Cost $700

Truck goes in on the morning of the 15th. Should have it back in 5 days. I'm ready for it to be fixed so I can do some more damage.

Got a call and the collision center said that my truck would be done tomorrow. I was happy for a moment... then he said that it was going to be $250 higher than the quote / estimate. There was a long pause. I told him I never spoke to anyone that said it would be higher than the original estimate. The owner said that he would check into to it and let me know who talked to me about fixing a 1" tear in the fender liner. I reminded him that we originally agreed to not fix the 1" tear. Another long pause. He said he would call me back. I actually trust this guy even though I don't know him from Adam. I hope he does the right thing and sticks to the original quote because I plan on paying the price on the original quote. I have to believe there are still some people that stick to their word.
