Um, someone keyed a swastika into the side of our car two weeks ago. The same week as we were picking the car up from the shop, a girl ran through a stop sign and hit me while I was driving out other car. Then, that same damn night, someone side-swiped our swastika car. 3 car insurance claims opened in one week.

That being said, I would file a police report like you said, but if you don’t plan on getting anything fixed, then there is no need to call insurance. However, if you don’t have a deductible, you may want the car appraised by your insurance company. They may cut you a check for the cost of the repairs and you can choose whether to repair the car or not.

I know this might sound dumb, but… water? I had someone spraypaint a big red squiggle all the way down the side of my green car several years ago. The fix turned out to be water and a scrubber sponge – the kind you use on dishes. Gently rub the paint with a wet sponge, the scrubby side, and you may get lucky. For me, it worked like a charm.

I’m sorry that someone felt like they had to mess up your property to have a good time. I understand your fury.

I will start by saying that you’re supposed to call and report all incidents to your company per your contract….However, vandalism is covered under comprehensive coverage – since you don’t have that coverage on your vehicle, then there is really no point in calling your insurance company.

Call the complex. Maybe that have surveilance cameras that caught the people who did this and you can get a plate number or something? That will probably change things with the insurance company.
