Wow… Insurance company FINALLY got back to me, after leaving two messages with the guy this week :P
So the appraisal has been approved and the total damage so far has come up to $5700. This doesn’t include any unseen damage which may be found when they fix the car, but if they do find stuff, they’re allowed to go ahead and fix it and they don’t see it becoming too much more expensive.
At this point, the guy’s telling me that it should take about 5 days to fix, then I can get my little car back. If the autobody shop calls me late in the afternoon on whatever day, I’m allowed to keep the rental car til the following day, which is kinda nice.
So hopefully this means I might get Eggnog back next week!! I miss my little car.
