    got off work at 10pm and came out to a beat to hell truck pics can be seen here got an estimate today and it looks like its gonna get totaled out, about 9700 worth of damage. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif oh well maybe i can get my /forums/images/graemlins/crewcab.gif i have always wanted.

    Just found out today the truck appraised for alittle over 10,000 i am not going to let them total it out though, they are going to give me the most money i can get without totaling it out, so i will still have a clean title, i might just try and sell the truck as is, how much you think i can get out of it?

    Is that the one you were trying to sell? They were nice enough not to break out your windows.

    Did you PO somebody? Man that stinks. Hard to believe, from the pics at least, that is being called $9700 in damage. I'd get another estimate.

    well if its worth 8k they won't total it for 6. it would have to be 8 worth of damage if the book value is 8 to total it. I know its stupid but I'm surprised they beat it like that and didn't smash any glass or slash tires. Thats what you usually see. No matter how mad I get at someone I wouldn't go after their vehicle its just dumb.

    Re: My 93 chevy got vandalized last night

    $6k worth of damage to an $8k truck may very well total it. Don't forget the insurance company will compare the salvage value also when deciding whether to total it and trucks often bring pretty high salvage bids if they are in running condition. The basic formula is:
    value of truck-salvage value < estimate + expected supplements=total loss. If it is close most companies will total it rather than gamble that the body shop won't supplement them for additional parts or labor once the job is started which would push what they pay higher than the cost of just totaling it.

    dang that, looks like no tools job, to me that looks like kick in damage, some just kicked the crap out of it, probobaly didn't have anything to brake the glass with. and thats a lot of kicking for one man.
