Once that was done, my son had to make an appointment with the geico adjuster (another 3 days of waiting) to estimate the damage. After that, our body shop found damage the adjuster missed and it required another 4 days of waiting for geico adjuster to come out to the body shop and authorize repairs. All in all, what should have been handled in 2 weeks took a month to get done.
I will give you another example.
I was just recently involved in an "accident" -- pulling into the parking space, half way in, a girl in the parked car next to me just opened her door and I ramed it (at <5 mph). I immediately reported the details to Geico and the very next day went on a business trip to Asia.
Two weeks later (yesterday) I returned and found a week old letter in my mail box stating that they have paid out to the other owner fo the damages I caused. Seems pretty fast, IMO. I did not agree that it was my fault, however, Geico said they will take care of them and they did.
Today, I took my car to BMW and geico wrote them a check for $2,500 to fix the bumper (cracked), hood (barely scratched) and headlight (scratches)
