I went to Smart Madness yesterday to have them look at it and provide an estimate. It's looking at around $1,400 worth of damage and may go even higher. Glad I'm not paying for it.

I'm somewhat pissed at the person who did the estimate for GEICO. Smart Madness estimated the cost of the repair at $1,400 and the shop GEICO sent me to was $930. Naturally GEICO only wants to pay $930.

You have the right to take your car to a shop of your choice and for the repairs to be made using only factory new parts. I would go to another shop and see if they will write a higher estimate then Smartmadness, and tell Geico you only want a shop that is experienced with smart cars. In fact, a smart Center would be a good place to get a 3rd estimate. You can always play the small claims court card with Geico, if they refuse to pay the estimate amount that Smartmadness quoted you. Also, always allow room for a supplemental claim as there could be additional damage, once the car is disassembled.
