I'm very lucky that I can perform my duties as Corporate Marketing Goddess from my home office. I appreciate the company's reasonable accommodations, and am very grateful that I am a self-motivated/managing worker who really doesn't need much guidance. I go in to the corporate office on Fridays, typically, but with the weather we've had, I haven't been there since before Christmas.
I am glad Mr. Gamegrrl will be here so that he can go out there and keep the adjuster company during the process since I can't do it. I will probably be standing at the kitchen window trying hard to read lips.
I'm keeping very good track of names, dates, what was said, etc., plus they have agreed to put everything in a letter. I won't be doing ANYTHING until I see that letter.
One concern I have is that the check will be imprinted with some sort of "Future claims waiver" saying that the check is payment in full, and cashing the check is my agreeing to a waiver of any future claims, etc. The letter they're supposed to be sending will tell me and the body shop that if the repairs end up costing more than they have already paid, then the body shop should bill Sedgwick directly and they will pay it.
I am tempted to pay out of my pocket the amount of whatever check they send me, wait and see what the total damages are and if they do pay any bill from the body shop, and THEN cash the check if all goes well.
I dunno. I just want my car to look perfect again, and I do NOT want the damaged/repaired area to start rusting out in a couple of years.
