Dude thats hardly any damage. I'd just try and get the company to settle out of pocket. Just buy a new tailgate and sand down that corner of the bed and use some filler and spray it with some paint. Super easy fix.

Frig sakes. Sorry to hear that.... argh! It's one thing if you did it yourself, it's totally another when it's not your fault. Did the delivery driver's ppl call you about restitution?

I drive for a company and know the ins and outs of what happens in this situation. Get an estimate and submit it to the company. They will issue a check. No insurance claim needed. Get the claim to include the damage to the bed as well. Get a new tail gate, touch up the bed yourself, and pocket the rest.

I was thinking about takin a come along to it and trying to bring the pass side back into alingment but then i remembers it was broken from the last snow storm helping a guy out. no i went to the local body shop and got a estimate of damages of $778. so it should work out in the end I hope. I don't know the market value of the truck so that makes it hard to guess. but no matter what happens im not going to let them total it and then have to buy it back. the guy at the body shop is willing to work with me. what every they are willing to give me for the damage with out totaling the truck he is gonna let me pay the difference minus fixing the tailgate (its f***ked anyway) and have him replace the pass side bed side cause it had a ton of damage from the years of use. so well see what happens fingers crossed.
