I have a vehicle that was damaged by an auto shipper in a move from FLA to MO. My wife missed the damage when car was dropped off, we noticed it 2 hrs after delivery and immediately contacted shipper. After 3 months od email back and forth how it was almost complete, they now say they will only pay direct to shop for repair. I will not accept since they damaged my car not the shops car. Do I have standing for this claim? Do they have rights to not pay me but the shop?

Re: Vehicle Damage
It depends on what your contract says (and your ability to prove that they damaged the car). Having signed the "no damage" receipt, you have a problem, butthe quick call helps. What's wrong with paying the sho? If the shop is a decent shop, why worry about whether you pay them or the company pays them? You want the car fixed, don't you?
