Wife hit garage today 😞

While driving out of our garage the wife thought she could drive around a service van in our driveway but didn't take her swing into consideration. Resultant damage required a new right rear door skin, rear panel repair, fender trim, side step rail and paint. New flashing needed for garage. Still waiting on estimate. Due to this being our second claim in 4 months I'm expecting the insurance co to raise my rates significantly (canadian). Despite being accident free for 10yrs since being with company. None prior either.

Re: Wife hit garage today 😞

Yup. Been a great first year for it. Glass claim in spring for windshield, lil rear ender and now this. Shit comes in 3's so here's hoping my Jeep is done getting beat on. Collision repair shop does great work though and uses all OEM stuff. Unfortunately it will be mid December before it gets into the shop. I'll treat the Jeep to a Magnaflow exhaust that's sitting in the garage in the spring. Just hoping the insurance company doesn't get crazy with my premiums.

That sucks. Is the wheel damaged too? Or can that be wiped clean?

Re: Wife hit garage today 😞

I feel for you man. Earlier this week, my wife swung into the driveway too fast, to try to get out of someone's way. She swiped the heat exhaust vent that comes out of our house. Luckily just rubber tire and the black, plastic trim around the wheel well got scuffed, can't even tell now after a high pressure wash (except for a white paint mark on the tire, which should eventually fade away).

I'm just glad the height of our vent is perfect to miss the rim, and that she scraped it just right where it didn't hit any side panels.

That's one reason you have insurance. Even if the premiums go up a little, she'll get all fixed up, and all you have to worry about is the deductible.

Re: Wife hit garage today 😞

We used to have long driveway with a wooden fence running the length of it. I swear my wife used to take out a sideview mirror of our Ford Explorer every three months. I remember buying two at a time off ebay because it was a case of 'when' not 'if' it happened again.

I feel for ya. Let's hope this doesn't happen again.

Re: Wife hit garage today 😞

Ouch...I have some similar damage on my passenger side from clipping a concrete barrier at the Union Station parking garage in DC. (I was forced to cut my wheel to avoid someone speeding through the garage) That brought tears to my eyes as I'm sure this did for you. I'm yet to get an estimate as money has been tight, but it is what it is...superficial damage that needs to be fixed. Sad to see your post!
