I'm in NM too, that's why i said to park miles away too. Maybe a NM thing. ..

Hi Rosariors3 and anyone else that does not know this.

YOU NEED A POLICE REPORT TO FILE WITH ANY INSURANCE COMPANY

I sure hope nobody would ever think otherwise.

No, you do not.

A parking lot is private property. You do NOT need a police report to make an insurance claim for damages to your vehicle on private property.

Not in California. As I said earlier, in most jurisdictions, they tell you to exchange information with the other party, and get your junk off of the road so that the other motorists can pass by.
Frankly, I never really understood how having some goofy kid in a uniform show up and write a report about an accident that he didn't see, could possibly be any help at all.

A couple of years ago I got a big door ding/dent in a private parking lot (grocery store). My insurance company instructed me to file a collision report (online) in lieu of calling the cops. They used this as part of the claim process and covered the repair (minus the deductible). My door ding was pretty big. The metal was actually pushed in and there was a pin hole in the center. Body work and paint came to over $900.00

Good luck.

A few years ago I had my 3000 GT and got a door bang at Daytona Community College and at the time had Nationwide insurance. I don't know who did it so I did not call the Police.
Nationwide would not pay the $1,500 because I did not have a stupid Police report. That was 1994 and maybe things have changed sense then.
From then on, I swore I would never go without a Police report if anything ever happened.

In my state, Texas, there is what's called a "blue form." Otherwise known as the driver self report crash form. In accidents resulting in damage less than $1000, 99% of the time the police will give you a blue form and leave. On collisions that occur on private property, the Police will virtually always give you a blue form. State law mandates law enforcement "investigate" accidents that occur on public roadways only. Private property collisions are civil matters in the eyes of law enforcement as they cannot issue traffic citations on private property, and therefore have no authority there in reference to traffic related incidents. In these instances I suggest anyone in Texas log on to the Department of Public Safety website and download your own blue form. Filling it out and mailing it off to DPS will generate a suitable report number for insurances purposes.

However I'm not going to classify a door ding as a collision, due to both vehicles being stationary at the time of occurrence. In Texas there are two possible charges one could pursue, and that is criminal mischief which is defined as someone intentionally or knowingly damaging a persons property without permission and reckless damage, which is defined as someone damaging another persons property when a reasonable person would have known their actions could result in said damage. Reckless damage is a class C misdemeanor (ticket), and criminal mischief starts as a misdemeanor and goes up from there depending on damage amount and type of item damaged.

Your not going to articulate criminal mischief from your average door ding. The best you could hope for was reckless damage.

Why is this important? Because if you call the police and state "I'd like to report a collision" in reference to a door ding, you are not going to get anywhere. If however you call them and state you'd like to report criminal mischief, you might have a bit more traction.


That said, I would not call the police. If I had the time I'd wait for the vehicles owner to come back and make contact with them. If I did not have time, I'd leave and do like I have always done and chalk it up as a fact of life and consider it a character mark on my car. Its not worth my time or law enforcement's time to come out and investigate a damn door ding.

^ also in Houston tx the cops don't even respond to minor events like such. A friends window got busted and things stolen he calls the cops they say someone will be there soon, after 2 hrs of waiting he gave up and left. Big city cops really don't care.

It depends on the state you live in. In California, especially if your on the major freeways, CHP main job is to keep the freeway open. Unless you have an injury, you can contact your insurance company.

HOWEVER, if the individual is under the influence of drugs and or alcohol, does not have insurance nor a valid driver's license, you want the goofy guy in the uniform to take the dirt bad to jail!

I despise things like this. My '12 got hit in a parking lot. Damaged the hood only. I didn't notice it until the next morning. I was furious! The lack of respect of some people drives me insane.
My girlfriend's daughter dinged a car with the door and I left a note with MY name and number. The lady called a couple hours later and I told her what happened and asked what she wanted to do. She said not to worry about it so I apologized many times and thanked her for being understanding.
I guess I think differently than the masses and own up to any mistake that I or anyone with me makes. The lady very much appreciated me leaving the note.

From the photo, it does not look like a paint chip, but rather some black paint transfer from his car to yours. If this is the case, it will buff out in less then 5 minutes with some polishing compound and a rag. Total cost would be under 20 bucks.

It's definitely a chip. You can see in the close-up of the darker vehicle were his yellow paint transferred.

I didn't see anyone else mention it, but what about the impact of having record of body work done on the vehicle? If/when it's traded off or sold, it'll show up that it received minor repair and couldn't that dock the value?

My wife and I are in the process of upgrading her wheels and that's something my salesman is leery of. On the flip side, my sister's Escape has been in the shop three times for minor scratches.

When I was in college, my house was in a residential neighborhood and my pickup parked in the drive. Went outside on a Sunday morning and someone had leaned up to it, must have slipped, grabbed the mirror, broke it and bent the door down, and left. I was furious. At least the OP will get it fixed on someone else's dime.
