    So today I was sitting in my truck waiting for a buddy of mine. Another friend of mine was in the truck with me with his door open. I told him to shut his door a couple times because I was reversing so I could get out a little easier, but he wasn't paying attention. So, with the passenger door open, I proceed to reverse just about 2 feet slowly when the door was pushed into a telephone pole.... The pole was in my "blind spot" from where I was sitting in the drivers seat. Its my fault. I was too much in a hurry. So here are the pictures.... Its not too bad I guess but its really frustrating me.

    Anyone know what I should do to try and fix it? I thought about just taking it to a body shop and see what they say. Thanks for the help!

    Don't kick yourself too much, we're all human. Agree let the pros fix it. The door itself could be bent, along with the hinges, hinge mounts...

    Unfortunately it's gonna come out of your deductible (assuming you have comprehensive).

    body shop. not an easy fix that is a tough spot. maybe a new door is in order in my opinion. that door will never seal the same again. ive fixed these before most timeswe replaced the door.

    Sucks, sorry to hear that happened. If you want the cheap route, could always do what my buddy did with his neon door when he found out it was leaking air by... manhandle it back into shape :p Seriously though, I'd probably have a shop look at it...

    It'll actually be a collision claim. If your insurance pays out over $750 your rate will go up on renewal and you'll have an accident on your record. If whoever you are insured with rapes you with a rate, send me a PM. I'm a broker...and I won't fee you =)

    edit: This could be different in FL. I'm only licensed in CA

    I would love to help you, but I am only licensed to transact in California :(

    The advice I can give you, is to contact a "broker" (not an agent) in your area and ask them to shop around for you. Also, don't let them charge you a broker fee, it's not something that you HAVE to pay to be insured (again, this could be different in FL, i'm not sure of your insurance laws over there)

    Did the same thing on my corolla years ago... was sitting in my driveway with the car in reverse and the door open, foot slipped off the brake pedal, and the door got crunched when it stuck in the side of my garage. Damage was nearly identical. At this point, the corolla had quite a few miles on it, and it wasn't worth filing, so I bent it back into place myself. Other than the top corner of the door being a bit wrinkled, you wouldn't have known it had happened. The door and window both sealed just fine.
