Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am sorry to hear this.
What province are you in please?Approximately how much will it cost for the repairs?
I suggest that you wait a couple of days as this happened on the weekend.
Then if you do not hear from them you can send them a letter by Registered Mail setting out the facts and demanding that they reimburse you for the cost of the repairs. Give them a deadline for replying to you.
Tell them if they fail to comply you will commence legal proceedings and then will be seeking and order for your costs as well.
Then you should try and get three estimates for the cost of the repairs.
If they don't comply you can then sue them in Small Claims Court and can self-represent and if it gets that far and you find you need some help as you go through the process you can always post on this site again and I can assist you further.
Does that help as a starting point?
Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
You can call the police but it is not likely a criminal issue.
You should not report it to your insurance unless you want to make a claim.
Yes you can phone first but that is not necessary. It is up to you.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
