took out the grill and assembly, headlight, quarter panel, bumper.. pretty much anything that could crunch if u hit behind the rear wheel and back, on a f150.
but would i be able to do that? i have state farm. there covering it and going after his insurance for the refund.

For what difference? They will issue a check for the cost of the repairs. If you want to fix your vehicle, then you use that money to pay for the repairs. You can tell the auto body place what to do with the repairs... IE, 05-06 front clip.

what i mean is there could be more damages than they can see, like when the body shop starts workin on it they could find more wrong with it. That doesnt mean im out of pocket, they pay the difference too.

I dont know how statefarm works I know USAA will do the same thing.

IE: your haggling over the cost difference of a headlight. the repair place says 10 dollars more they insurance company guesstimate for.... guess what they will not haggle over the 10 dollars. However the repair place might quote a cheaper price for something else.


now Say the insurance company missed something completely mine will 1. come back and reestimate it or get the estimate from the repair facility.
