My sister had been in an accident (she is safe Allhumdulilah) due to which the left side of the car was badly damaged. We called Adamjee and they asked us to leave it at Toyota Eastern Motors Gulistan-e-Jauhar, Karachi. They surveyed the car and after 10 days they came up with the parts required and price for them. Now according to our insurance policy our car is fully covered but if there are damages due to accident then the parts required will have to be shared by Adamjee(40%) and client(60%) i.e. us(because its a 7 years old car). Rest of the denting/painting will be covered under insurance. Now guys have a look at the parts and prices which they(Toyota and Adamjee) gave us. Also for information major damage was on the rear left door and front left fender but Toyota has listed other parts like front headlights, front/rear bumper also which are completely ok in my opinion(they just need to screw them together) but they still listed it. I marked them with *.
*headlight left - 15,000( Adamjee)
fender front left - 19,000 (Toyota)
left back door - 48,000 (Toyota)
left back door window - 2,500 (Toyota)
outer strip for left back door window - 3,500 (Toyota)
*rear bumper - 18,000 (Toyota)
*front bumper - 18,500) (Toyota)
*bumper spacer front - 1,800 (Toyota)
*bumper spacer rear - 1,800 (Toyota)
Total Cost - 128,100
So we have to pay 60 percent i.e. 76,860. Rest Adamjee will pay i.e. 51,240
1) I have a funny feeling here that Adamjee and Toyota are messing with us and listing high price or maybe listing unneeded parts to get more money out of us. Can they do something like that? :-/
2) Is it ok if I ask them to replace only fender and door and do denting painting for the rest where needed?
Please advice. I am really stuck here. Especially the door is so expensive.
