That sucks. I hope you get their number plate.

The insurance company will be responsible for chasing them up, but you'll still need to pay excess. They will probably decide whether it's worth chasing up once they find out how much it's going to cost them.

ETA - Give them a call and check with them - you might be required to report it to the police to get an event number.

Then onto Royal Doulton for a nice aromatherapy room smelly thingo, bargain.

Then head to BigW near home, run in and get card and wrapping paper for my nephew, come out get in the car, get home, get out of the car and notice somebody has hit my car AGAIN! and left.

I go back to the shops and speak to a security guard (bad language barrier ) who says he'll check the camera for anything and get back to me.
He rings me back and says all I can see is you walking around the car park looking at other cars, um thats when I returned the second time to see if I could see any cars with my paint smeared over the front of their car.
I ring him back and clarify the time and he tells me he was looking at footage from when I was speaking to him, but what I needed was about 20 minutes earlier, I think they'll be able to get something though if they got it from when I was there the second time.

I'm probably going to need a new bumber bar, so am thinking before I leave my expensive insurance company i'm going to claim it, but the shopping centre won't tell me anything because of privacy so I may have to get them to earn their money and go after the person if they can make out a number plate. Pretty sure thats what we're paying for, am I right or not? I've never made a claim so am not 100% that this is how it works.

So now have the front and the back to fix, both shopping centre dents where people have just left, my car is not even 2 years old yet, people just have no respect for other peoples stuff

I am mad!
hubby has experience in these things...

so
1.contact the police and request them to request tape, they only hold onto video footage for 2 weeks so be quick
2.the police can request and view tape, then give you the information
3.you give info to insurance with police report, they will be charged with leaving the scene of an accident etc.

ring the centre manager and ask to talk to the facilities manager.

hope this helps

i saw a few the other night too. i think with the introduction of cars land, they are ramping up the advertising here, finally realising that we are prepared to spend $$$ to get there and enjoy the magic.

i'm home alone tonight. carlo is off interstate with the relatives. not sure how i feel about having the place to myself

they were saying all fast passes were gone by 9.20am
if you got a pass at 9.10am it was for 7pm

some people stood for 4.5 hrs in the stand by line...are you folks kidding me

I've been following one of the threads about the wait time it's crazy and as we are there the week AP holders can come back in we have decide to spend 3 nights at probably PP unless a discount comes out there is no way I am lineing up for that long and the kids would be devastated if they didn't get to ride the cars rides at least once

I'm sitting here at Perth airport with the kids DH's plane is late so I thought wewould have a Hot chocolate $16:50 later for 3 I'm really glad we choose not to do this on a regular basis and do Disney instead

Ouch! That would take a good chunk out of holiday savings!

Are there any companies around you that will let you use one of those interest free cards?
