I noted last week that my wife got in a fender bender. It was totally not her fault — someone rear-ended our Honda Odyssey when she was out and about. Anyway, we decided to pursue the claim directly through the other driver’s insurance company (Grange). Shortly after the incident, my wife went to a local body shop and got an estimate for the repair. Grange then cut a check to us for the cost of the repair, and we can (apparently) just sign it over to the body shop to cover the cost of the repair. Either that or we could do the truly frugal thing and deposit the check and charge the repair on a reward credit card… Actually, a truly frugal move would be to pocket the cash and drive around with a dented bumper. Anyway, the check arrived yesterday, so now all we need to do is schedule the repair.
