I finally got off my duff and called someone to come out and give me an estimate on my car. Turns out I’m looking at just under $700. I don’t even know what my deductible is, but even if it’s only $500.00, I’m probably better off just paying cash and not turning it in. I’m actually relieved because I thought it would be at least double this amount. So I told the guy to go ahead and get the parts and then the best part happened: He said that as soon as they come in, he’ll come get the car and fix it. He’ll come get it! I don’t even have to leave the house. Awesome!
The drawback to this wonderful news? I am expected to be without car the rest of the week and this weekend, and will have to borrow one, thus, limiting my travel plans.
