Follow-Up on the Fender Bender

Called Geico this morning and I'm tellin' ya...there could not be a larger contrast between my recent dealings with them and with ALFA.

The other driver reported the incident within minutes, as I said, and I had a message from Geico to call them about the accident.

I just got off the phone with them. They verified all my information, asked me to describe the scene of the accident, verified that I'm the owner of my car and that I was driving it at the time. Then they closed the corresponding claim that had been opened against my policy when I said that I did, indeed, want the other driver's policy to cover the accident.

She then scheduled me with an adjuster/repair center for Friday at 8:00 AM, plus a rental car (probably another damnable Cobalt) for three days from Enterprise. The Cobalt (or similar) will be there for me at the collision repair place and I should be in and out in under a half-hour. Both Geico and the collision center will guarantee the work done there so that if I have problems after that, they'll fix it at no cost to me (or the other driver, one presumes).

We'll see if all that holds true. :)

So I guess you could say that, so far, anyway, this has been the least painful accident I've been involved in from driveability, repair, insurance, other driver, and not involving the cops standpoints. Luckily, I've never been involved in an accident in which anyone was hurt.

Did I just jinx myself? (Good thing I don't believe in jinxes.... <knocks on wood>)

[Edit 14:33] I'm not sure if this will work, but we'll try it anyway. The pictures of the damage to my car are on my Facebook page, but you don't have to be on Facebook to see them, they claim. Go here to find out. And let me know if they're not.

I am so glad that Geico is treating you so well. They were amazing after I totaled my car, including taking care of the radiography bill that came in a month after my claim was closed.
