I got into an accident on July 4th. When I took my car to the collision center I told them I wanted everything new. The Field Adjuster for Allstate and the guy at the shop insisted that I should get a “recycled” door. I don’t want that, I want a new door. I tried arguing but they just kept trying to convince me this door was better. I had to take my boyfriend with me to argue, he didn’t even argue just made his points, and after I had spoken to the Field adjuster he agreed to get the new door if that’s what I wanted. I had to have the guy at the collision center call him to confirm in front of me. So after waiting a week or so for the used door now I have to wait for the new door even longer, all because they couldn’t just order the new door when I asked them. The rental car has to be turned in by Sunday and I’m left with out a car. I was told that my insurance company only covers 30 days then I have to pay for it. I can try to get reimbursed by the the guy who hit me insurance. But I found out he didn’t have insurance. It had expired June 2007. So no wounder his insurance company wasn’t calling me back. Now I have to figure out what to do, because my car now won’t be ready till Mid August. Yes MID AUGUST! So the car accident wasn’t at all my fault…100% the other guys fault, and I get screwed by not having a car, and having to go through all this. Unfortunately now I have to keep waiting, I can’t wait to get my car back!
It’s just amazing to me how people can be so irresponsible, and how your own insurance company can’t cover your rental until your car is finished getting fixed.
I just hope it’s sooner than later!
