My car was vandalized(broken windshield and some body damage) while sitting overnight waiting to get worked on at PepBoys. After a big runaround they are telling me to claim it on my insurance. I will be running the risk of being dropped not to mention having to pay a deductable. Do I have any other options besides me claiming it? What about paying for the work it was taken in for?

My response:

Pep Boys is off the hook to you. Take a look at the work order you signed. Somewhere near your signature, you released Pep Boys from responsibility for all damages, including fire, theft, vandalism, etc.

If you have comprehensive coverage on your policy, then you should make a claim through your own insurance.

You are, however, on the hook to Pep Boys for the costs of repairs pursuant to the work order.
