Re: Mother efing nyc car garage - With pics

Get used to it, it WILL happen again, one week after I bought my 12 WK2 my garage scratched it in the same spot as yours. Same with my 13, the only scratch on it is from the garage.Typically the city garages have a body shop that will come and do small cosmetic touch ups onsite at the garages expense but that does not take the sting away from your new ride getting damaged by a careless parking attendant. I bought my 12 from MJCD and they said nothing about parking deal, is this new?

NEVER EVER EVER let the garages body shop touch the car.

Have your own shop, get the estimate and then get it repaired once they give you the check.

Re: Mother efing nyc car garage - With pics

That's awful. Good thing you have video to show the condition prior to them getting their hands on it. Video or not, I would have been raising hell to make them pay for the repairs.

Agreed, I never did take them up on it , but some might. I got estimate and deducted from my monthly rent.

I feel for you and hope it all gets taken care of smoothly. I, too, refuse to drive into the city. No way, no how!

Do things like this happen a lot in NYC garages? What about on-street parking, a lot of mishaps there too?

If I'm going into Chicago by car and not L, I'll always find a decent parking lot on SpotHero so I can avoid garage and on-street parking.
I happens a lot in any city, but especially in NYC where the a$$holes reside (clearly not me....) TBH, you run the risk anywhere you park in NY, but thats why I got the front and rear bumper guards on my rig. Also, I noticed a few scratches on my rear guard, so very happy I decided to put that on her.. NYC MAN....

I've been parking in NYC garages every day for a long long time since I've lived in Manhattan all my life, I do the same except I have the valet walk around with me to show the car is scratch/ding free. And when I pick it up I walk around again.

Yes, I have had a couple of times with the garages scratching the car, but I always get them to pay because I cover my ass with the walk around. I get the estimate from my shop, get my check, then repair.

And to sndrsk, if you leave your car out in the street in Manhattan, it will get ****ed up. lol
Of course I won't let those mouth breathers fix my car. He will submit the claim to the office and I will (in the interim) get an estimate from my guy in NJ. I trust those guys way more than these morons who get work from the garage.

As for the walk around, I heard horror stories, so I take an extra 10 seconds to walk around the rig with my phone. I might look like a moron to some, but I feel comfortable knowing that I have that info in my hand..

Yea, it came on board roughly around the same time I bought mine. I got it pretty much at the beginning of April and it was on their website (not there anymore). Basically you get a reduced rate at a few imperial garage locations (reduced from like $600 to $200 a month)

Sorry about that. Its sucks. I bet they would be much more careful if your last name was Gambino or Gotti.

LOL.. In all fairness, I am 6'3 225 with the look of someone who spent some time boxing with some golden gloves brothers!! He got the point once the veins in my head started to pop out a little and immediately called his manager.

I mean, I am sure I couldn't have punched the repairs out of him, so I am guessing me pulling out my phone and showing him the condition my car was in prior to them whacking it worked in my favor.

They wouldn't even bother with the parking garage. They would drop off the car at a shop that owed them a favor.
