GF had a very very slow speed bump today, our car has no marks on it other than the dirt being smudge on the number plate. However the car she bumped into (it stopped suddenly in queuing traffic)has been quoted for a new:
RR Towing eye cover
Rear retainer rail
and an obscene amount of labour and unnecessary checks. The quote is from a main dealer and is £380
GF said there was not even a scratch on the bumper of said car which is much bigger than ours and it feels like we are being had.
Not disputing who is a fault what options do I have. Can I request the other party to gain quotes elsewhere or counter her quote with my own at a local non main dealer garage.
As you can tell we're avoiding the route of the using the insurance as the excess is higher than the quote above.
Cheers in advance.
