Question re: AUTOBODY/Car Ins. Stuff

my car has a few dings and dents from people hitting me in parking lots and parked on the street (some bigger than others) Chat Icon

if i get them fixed, can that go through insurance? i dont know who hit the car.... and it is on 3 different sides (not all on one side)

TIA

what is your deductible? It may not be worth it to go through your insurance to finx a few dents.

i know.. it is 500.

but i know it would cost more than that to fix - but i wasnt sure if insurance would even cover that if it was parking lot stuff with no fault

I bet they wont fix it but you should call your insurance company and find out what your coverage is....

I would try calling this company, they are a franchise and might have someone where you live.

They can either come to you and use your electricity or take it to their base. I drove my car into a gate and just did some superficial damage all down the side and they came to my work, picked up the car, fixed it at their garage and brought it back to my office and it cost around $200. Had I brought it to a body shop it would have been loads more.

I don't know if they have anything on LI, but its worth giving them a call.

Your insurance would cover it if you purchased the appropriate coverage, but each ding would be a separate deductible. So, I really don't think it would be worth it for you because each one would probably be below your $500 deductible.
