Got into a small fender bender this morning.

Sitting in traffic this morning on the 91 east junction with the 110 north when the crv behind me was rear ended by a silverado witch caused a small chain collision resulting in damage to my rear. Thankfully nobody was hurt....now i need to find a bodyshop that can weal and deal an Mtech bumper.

MY DAMAGE
Minimal the bumper will need replacing for sure.





The Crv





The silverado

Lol @ the silverado. So much for having a truck, the crv being sandwiched wasn't even that bad! Thankfully you guys are alright though. Try to go to elite autobody in crenshaw, talk to hank. He's the owner and will get you what you need for cheap

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

Yes in deed, the silverado has assumed full response ability which happens to be insured with Geico. Geico has contacted me and wanted me to go through their Geico repair center i decline and requested for the option of one of my choice. Now i am scheduled to for a repair estimate at a Geico repair center. i just hope they don't low ball the number so much that no other body shop will do it for that price. Anybody have experience with Geico claims and two party checks?

hmm from my past insurance claim exp (wawanessa) this happened.

1. You call their claim # and tell the story, they will send the adjuster over and est the repairs and cut you a check.

OR

2. you get an est from a shop of your choice (or they have preferred shops list they can send you) once you fill out the paper work everything will be billed to the insurance co.
