    Looks like my claim will be denied. Geico tried multiple times to contact the truck's driver to get his version of the accident. No success, he's not cooperating. There's no witness or police report to confirm he was at fault. I took the car to my detail guy and he cleaned it very well, for free. I'm happy with the results.

    Wait, so let me get this straight: your insurance company is denying your insurance claim because they couldn’t contact the person at fault?

    Sorry to hear that, Fredo. Same thing happened to my dad in a Chick-fil-a parking lot. Dude totally changed his story, and claim denied. I did my best to clean it up and minimize the visual impact, but 4-5 years later he still gets fired up about it.

    Same thing happened to my wife's Audi in commuter parking lot
    a good Painless guy can fix that. cost me $900.00 (Ins Deductible is $1,500 )
    Insurance company said to many people claim they were hit in a parking lot when they actually did the damage themselves. So its considered an "At Fault" accident.

    Damn that sucks. Is there no point going to the cops now to submit an official complaint?

    When Kristen got sideswiped by a tractor trailer. We called the cops right away and filed a report. They never found the truck but insurance covered it, I imagine because we had a police report

    Dang! how can they deny your claim? you pay them to cover you except for fender benders? You need covering so what is their job exactly?

    My insurance is Allstate. The other driver has Geico. I presented a claim with Geico and they will decline it because they need the other driver's version of the accident. I understand it's not Geico's fault. It really is the driver's fault for not cooperating. Still not happy about it.

    Amazing results. I have an estimate of $325 for PDR. I'm hesitant to go that route, because one PDR shop (the best in town) told me they could not fix it due to the location of the damage. But looking at your pics I have hope now.

    Not sure. Three weeks passed already.

    I contacted Allstate. I can present a claim with them. My deductible is $1,000 and the accident would show on my record. So that option doesn't look very appealing.

    Fredo, check out this YouTube link of my car from the PDR guy. He was concerned about the aluminum fenders memory but you can see the results,
    took him about 6-7 hours to work it out. well worth not having to repaint
