repair shop/ auto shop owners? I had some one that had allstate hit the back of titan that hit my f250. Long story short they only want to pay $120 to replace the bumper pads when the bumper is a inch off. They didn't even come out to look at it witch means my wife had to take the truck to them. So figure $20 bucks in diesel plus her time and mine ( had to spend 2 hours on the phone trying to explain how we both work and don't have time to take the truck to them) anyways how do they get away with this? I thought they would pay for my bumper then I could replace it my self. I guess the only way to get a new bumper is to have a shop look at it.

Sorry for any typos posting on my phone

Don't settle. Tell them you want a new bumper and you want travel expenses. They can't close the claim until you accept and sign off on it. Talk to the adjuster.


Gone but not forgotten...
Any body shops near you? I would take it there and have them give you a quote.

and since they couldn't even be bothered to come out and look at the damage, tell the shops to quote "the works." I'd expect travel time and expense, a rental during repair, and cost of replacement for that which is damaged.

Sign nothing until it is repaired and you are re-payed.
