Today was the day we've been waiting for... for a good 2 weeks now. The truck has returned. While the shop eventually did a great job on the exterior of the truck, the interior was filthy.
The tow truck driver had to secure the steering wheel with a tie down which left a rusty mess on the wheel. Then something "exploded" on the inside of the windshield on the passenger side leaving a streaky mess.
When looking at the final bill, it escapes me how you can expect to collect $5,000 for a repair job and not clean up after yourself. For those that care, it was the Precision Collision shop on Evergreen Way in Everett.
Sad, but at least after a good cleaning it will be back to normal. Most of all, I'm just glad not to have a rental car anymore.
