Sat. nite we went to the casino to see the Merle Haggard show.....valet parked it. When we left, our car pulled up...but didnt stop! Kept going past us to a Security guy...waving me over there. Sure enough, the valet guy got caught with one of those barrier arms coming down! Scraped the pillar at the windshield pretty bad. Gotta call the Security investgator tomorrow....they WILL fix it. :mad:

I am sorry to hear of the damage to your car and I hope that the repairs to the car will be excellent. If I were you I would also ask the casino for the money back on the tickets for the show as I know the damage to the car ruined your evening. Make sure there was no damaged to the windshield and check your power roof just to make sure it did not suffer any shock from the damage to the pillar.

So the casino has agreed it's their fault and will repair the car and pay for a rental car too. I considered using a mobile body tech that has done work for me befor but the casino said if there were issues after the repair..paint etc, I would have no recourse. So I opted to let them use the body shop they contract with.....we'll see how it goes.

Sounds like you're off to a good start. Have you thought about getting your insurance company involved? I might check with them before you sign anything or turn your car over. I'm just thinking out loud but I'd want to find out the reputation of the body shop. Maybe Yelp has some info on them. I'm all for a free fix, but I'd like to pick who's doing the work. I imagine you'll be having this car for quite a while, the Casino probably just wants this to go away. I think I'd take a bunch of 'before' pictures.

All done!! Dropped the car off Thursday morning at the body shop. The guy that came out and looked over to write it up...upon opening the door...said, "This is abut as good as it gets". They called me Friday about 10am...ready to go, come get it. The shop guy that brought my LaCrosse around to the front didn't speak much English but grinned ear to ear and said, "Is niiiiiice". The repair is perfect. The small dent and deep scratch is totally gone and perfect repaint. The casino is paying and for the 1 day car rental too. I'm happy again.
