Re: Mother efing nyc car garage - With pics

Had a party at a hotel in downtown DC last year... they did valet parking and decided to park one of my co-worker's cars in those spaces with the low hanging air ducts. I think you can guess the rest (yup, scraped the crap out of the roof). They also tried to say the damage wasn't their fault, that it was already there. What a world we live in.

Hope it works out for you and they pay for the damages.

Oh, they will. They already put the claim into their office and once approved, I take it to the shop to get fixed.

Re: Mother efing nyc car garage - With pics

I lived in NYC for six years, and many garages will hide behind a "not responsible for theft/damages" waiver they print on the back of tickets and/or on a small sign in or near their office. With what they charge, this should be outlawed.

That's bullshit and it wont hold up in court. Ask me how I know. lol


They charge you for a service to keep your car safe and protected. Its not like its a self park garage where you park for free and park at your own risk.

Re: Mother efing nyc car garage - With pics

Just hoping they follow through with a payment. So many ways they can still chaff your butt with delays and then offer some token partial payment to end your claim. Often they will not offer a cash settlement, but instead insist that you use their body shop. In the end, it can be prudent just to take what they give you and move on, despite being completely in the right.

If you can afford it, it's worth $25-$50 a month to the manager for a permanent parking spot that's easy for the attendants. That pretty much also insures that you never have any damage as a "manager favorite".

What they are counting on is that the waiver will deter at least some people - especially tourists - from pursuing a claim all the way to court. It gives the people working there something to hide behind so they can give you the immediate brush-off, and from there they are playing the numbers that enough people will weigh court costs and expenses to travel back to, and stay in, NYC for a hearing vs. the cost of the repair.

Also, once you get that initial "we're not liable" argument and drive away, you then have a more significant burden of proof to show that the damage occurred there and then, not elsewhere and later. Sleazy? Absolutely. But it saves them many thousands in repair bills annually.

and it certainly does. but for me, I always (from the day i got the ride) video'd the car as I drop it off. So, they can never say it wasn't them. Then, when i get it, i always walk around it with the guy. at that point, they deny shit.

Re: Mother efing nyc car garage - With pics

Yeah they wont deny shit. If I see that they did the damage there, Im not moving till you get me an incident report and if you dont want to give me that I will call the cops.


In my home garage about 5 years ago now. I had a 2007 WK Overland. It like my SRT now was my baby and it was treated like one. Always clean and never a scratch, I drop off the car, come back, and my quarter panel has yellow on it. The back of the garage has poles that the lower portion is painted yellow. They tell me that a cab hit it! LMAO

The manager doesnt want to give me the incident report. He then throws my keys at me and says you have to leave (meaning kicking me out as a monthly customer). So I took offense to the key throwing and I shoved the manager and I had to be pulled away. I then say no the car is staying here and Im going to go talk to your boss. I called up ICON's district mgr and I requested a meeting. I have the meeting the next day and the garage mgr doesnt show up like a bitch that he is and I talked to the district mgr and he said no no he meant if you want to switch garages you can. Yeah bullshit. Anyways ever since that day my jeep stays near the booth and I dont wait.

All of these mgrs who work in the garages try to be a bunch of bullies. People cant let them get away with it. So many people do and it bothers me to no end! LOL

So true. I think they specifically hire aggressive blowhards to manage these places, b/c it helps scare away problems. A friend came to visit me and put her rental car in a garage, and it came back out with a dent - not a scratch, a DENT - in the front passenger door. The manager just told her "it's a rental, the rental car company will take care of it" and got really pushy with her, and she ended up driving away scared and paying the deductible out-of-pocket.
