    Question for you guys about body shop

    My car recently got vandalized. It looks like they took a baseball bat and had at it with my car all the way around. I'm still waiting for an insurance inspector to come. I know this body shop that is telling me they will waive my deductible if I take it to them. They said business is slow so they can get my car back in 2 days. They also offer to let me borrow 1 of their cars to drive around for those 2 days. It looks like a legit business because they have a shop card license everything. Do you think I should go for this shop? Is it normal for a body shot to let you borrow the car to drive around?

    Google their name, a website is a good sign, and hopefully there are a few review sites that come up, check out those and see what they say

    Sorry about the damage though, hope your car is better soon

    I'm blaming the vandalism on kids. All I did was take my boyfriend out to the movies. Park the car in the street. So David this in public. Luckily, they didn't take my equipment that was in the backseat, which was about 1000 dollars worth.

    That's not good

    Depends where you are I guess, but in the UK a "courtesy car" from a body shop is very normal.
    The only issue with such a car is to check that if they aren't insuring it/you whilst driving it, that your insurance company does.

    You'd be better off being out & about while you still have the energy... Plenty of time for posting when you're an old codger like the mod team here...

    In other words, life is for living - not for reading about.

    Re: Question for you guys about body shop

    I was about to say the better business bureau too. If they are offering to pay your deductible then they are going to make that money up some where else and will cut corners. You need to make absolutely sure before you accept the car that it is in good enough shape for you. Remember an often like this will drastically change resale value if the worm isn't done properly
