Can anyone help me. I rented a car for one day only to later receive a bill of 1,100 eur ($1,250). While I am certain the damage did not happen when I had the car, there are several things that seem suspicious from the damage and repair (as well as many other suspicious circumstances).
Firstly, the dent on the bottom of the passenger side seems to be a very odd shape (2 long, thin dips). Can anyone tell me what the cause might be?
Secondly, the price I was charged seems to be very expensive for what it is. Can anyone tell me if this seems right?
The break down is like this:
Body work (exchange) 129,27€
Body work 419,43€
paint work 379,44€
paint material 111,92€
anti-rust work 38,13€
minor parts 27,44€
Finally, can someone explain what anti-rust work is? It is my understanding that rust occurs in dents that have been around for some time, therefore if there was rust the dent was around for a while before I had the car.
I have attached a picture showing the damage (sorry about the quality, it was taken by the rental company). The car is a 2015 VW polo 1.2
Thank you for any help!!
