I do not know HOW THE HECK they managed to claim 700 worth of damage. If the guy returned the car and never said a word, nothing would have ever happened. The cop had to ask if there was any damage. I guess to the other driver "yield" means "stop". My deductable is 500 but if it goes through insurance (state farm) I don't know what that'll do to the rates. All around a crappy situation for something so so so minor. I don't know all the rules etc either. Dad was going to look into it more. Im so mad that I let that slip and did this. Stuff happens so quick.
used to work for enterprise, it would suck to confront the person about dmgs they had no idea about, but at the end of the day, you signed a contract and you are responsible for a car no matter who damaged it. now if you have documents stating that the other person was at fault, yes you will get your money back and the ins company will take care of everything.
They're not even going to fix it. I've had rental cars with all kinds of body damage. Far worse than a 1" scratch. It just goes to their bottom line. Rent a car for a day? Pocket $10. Claim $700 damage and don't fix it, pocket $700.
the way the company told us was that at the end of the life of the rental car, they have to fix all the scuffs/dents like it was a new car. if it is a major damage where there is a liability of fault for renting a damaged vehicle, that vehicle will get fixed asap.
Im sure your right. If I remember, they were charging me 125 because the car couldn't be used to be rented out. Jeez just stupid crap. They guy used his own insurance to insure the rental car. I thought you paid like 20 bucks for the rental insurance that covered like everything?
why did they charge you 125?? was it your rental??
sorry for hijacking just want to know some info lol
