Just got 3 estimates. They range from 2550 down to 2160. Not a real big range. I'll probably go with the guy right around the corner... I see his work every day as I have to pass by to go to and from work. He's also been in business for 33 years in the same place. He was also the cheapest. Goes in next Wednesday.

I'm going to pay for the repair and deal with all the "other issues" on the side I guess. The truck will get fixed much quicker this way... and chances are I'll get most if not all my money back anyway. My father works for a fairly large insurance company, and has more insurance knowledge and business contacts than just about anyone in the state (he's also on several state insurance panals and boards). I'm going with my fathers advice. Like they say, Father Knows Best.... right???

You did get a police report right? Ususally, they will assign fault right there at the scene. That makes it pretty cut and dried for the insurance companies. Trust me when I say that a accident that you were not at fault for doesn't affect your insurance rate. It'll show up, but there is an X in the points assessed column.
