Mother efing nyc car garage - With pics

So, without me really getting into it, I am sure you can guess what I am railing about!! Bought a WK2 from Manhattan Jeep and with that you get subsidized monthly parking for $200 a month. Felt good about that.

Let me preface this story by saying that every time I drop it off I do a little video recording of the car by walking around it and showing all the corners to make sure that if an occasion were to arise, I would have video evidence to back up my claim that it was the garage's fault and not mine. BAZING.

Picked up the car last night, and low and behold, look what we have here. FUMING at this point. Telling them, this is a brand efing new car WTF...... Then I gather my thoughts and show them that every time I drop off the car I record her condition and every time I pick it up, I check it again. So, I have the proof that while in your hands you damaged it. So, I will speak with the manager Monday morning and have him pay for the damage, bc I sure as hell ain't.. So So mad guys.....

Thanks for letting me vent, fam...

Oh and here are the pics. Not terrible, but not what I want on my new rig.

That sucks! But I know that feeling every time I park in a garage in the city. Good idea to take a video before parking. I will start doing that as well.

Man I hate that for you. Seems like these days nobody gives a crap for other folks property.
I picked up two door dings in last few weeks myself so I'm a little frustrated & don't blame you for venting.

Just a shitty feeling when they don't care about our pride and joy. Although the wifey thought i was crazy for taping the car after every time I drop it off, this is a prime example of my paranoia working in my favor.

I guess there is a silver lining in this (trying hard to find one) I might have them paint the rear brow and grill the same color as the rest of the rig.

Just pissed off, but thanks for being there guys.

:motx: Yes, that does suck. My friend had his full size spare tire lifted from his BMW while in a NYC parking garage.

Man that sucks glad you video your ride, I visited NYC for a week I saw two cars get hit and the people just kept going. I would not own a nice car in that city. Glad they are going to pay, but sad the parking garage would not have done shit if you did not video the damage.Find a new garage.

It's sad what happens in parking garages. Yet there are probably more VERY expensive cars in parking garages in midtown Manhattan than anywhere else in the country.

When I was working and had to park downtown I always felt a little safer parking at One Police Plaza. I parked there a lot over the years and never a scratch.

Of course the shipping damage to our Jeeps also sucks. But as long as it gets fixed properly we can't let it ruin our lives.

Whoa!!! They got you good on that one. There's no way someone wouldn't know that happened. That really sucks.

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.

Sucks to see but you are doing the right thing by walking around the Jeep every time you drop it off.

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
