Default 16 year old son backed into Ford PU

My son, with drivers license for 4 weeks , backed up into a Ford PU at Marina.
Left note and waiting to here from owner.
Any thoughts to what this may cost to repair?

Good on the boy for doing the right thing!

AND being at the marina rather than any less desirable place/ persons!

GOOD JOB DAD!

My wife recently bent the bumper on our 2001 Excursion. It was a little worse than you pix, but not much. Total cost was @ $1K Original estimate was $750 but unseen damage to brackets holding the bumper upped the price.

PU wasn’t supposed to park there as it posted not to but it doesn’t matter.

If that were my son, if/when the owner calls, I’d be asking him if I could reach my son a lesson in making things right.

Rather than get insurance companies involved, I’d set the boy on a mission to find (and buy) a replacement bumper, then he and I would do the labor ourselves. Then the boy would thoroughly clean the truck. Of-course this hinges on the attitude of the truck owner.

Just bumper, a bolt on....$1000 probably an hr or 2 labor + part, depending.

Ins will want to pay for rechromed bumper....he will want new. New will be 2x the rechromed.

when I replaced that...2 times....on trucks... I took the insurance money bought the new part and replaced it myself

im sure you want to pay out of pocket

Your son was raised right and did good by leaving a note.

I would work with the other party and not turn it into insurance.

As said before if your handy with tools might want to get a new bumper and help your son put it on.

Great lesson learned

Insurance route would be costly.

Think that’s a 2012-2014 year model. Might be wrong.

Just looked over vehicle . Lots of dings a all over truck. Rusted ding on other side of front bumper. Trump sticker on back! I think I know the guy. Local LOE.

You should be very proud. FWIW, I would not go through insurance. A claim from a 16 year old will hurt for a long time.
