My wife took my brand new truck to the beach and she got it stuck in the sand.
She tried to get the truck out of the sand and it got deeper and deeper.
She ended up having to contact AAA to have someone tow us out of the mess. We had to pay $250 extra even though we had coverage, because the beach bail out required a special truck and lift. The lift damaged the underside of my truck. I noticed the damage as soon as the vehicle was dropped off. Unfortunately, this type of problem can happen from time to time when a vehicle needs to be towed in an emergency. I contacted the auto body shop to see if they could work on the damages and fit me into the schedule. The auto body shop suggested I get the tow truck driver to cover the deductible on my insurance, but I wasn’t too concerned about the $500 fee. I was simply concerned about getting the truck fixed up so it was in the same condition that it was before my wife decided to go to the beach. The auto body shop told me that it would take about 3 days to complete the work on the car. Unfortunately, it took three extra days and twice as long as I expected after the auto body shop ordered the wrong parts. Thankfully things looked really good when the car was finally returned to me. The auto body shop even took time to make sure that all of the undercarriage lights were working before they called me to pick up the vehicle.
