So my girlfriend's dad backed into my car the other week and we went through insure to file a claim
The repair estimate from the shop was $2,203. But that's kind of bs because the trunk is going to cost the $800 to get but that's because it's being shipped from a junk yard. The tail lights are going to cost $300 according to them and all the rest is labor and paint.
I got an email today that says it's "deemed to be a total loss" and I have 2 options.
1. I can choose to sell the car to them and they'll give me $2,041
Or 2. I can choose to keep the vehicle as a salvage and they'll pay me $1,694 (which makes it impossible to sell down where I live)
So basically what I want to know is does this sound like bs to anyone else. And what would you do?
