    State farm is usually pretty good when it comes to handling claims...call your agent

    Hey man, you might want to go hit up a rental agency if there are any open and you really have to get somewhere. I'm dealing with a bunch of financial & software firms in Jersey, D.C. & NY right now who are using duct tape, bailing wire and buckets just trying to keep connectivity up. The biggest issues all day have been with telephone circuits getting overloaded and going down. Or just straight up lack of hardlines. I've got Disaster lists from some real big EC firms that probably won't be lifted this week. There's a bunch of software companies that lost both primary and Disaster Recovery datacenters.

    Sorry about your car.

    I actually live right off of the island but left on Sunday... My roommates going back tomorrow and if it's accessible I'll be back down too and let you know then. They keep showing pictures of the north end of the AC boardwalk being destroyed but it's been falling apart for years.

    And back to the OP, he's from NY, so I seriously can not think of any possible situation where taking your car there would be practical.

    I have two coastal properties and have been through my share of hassles dealing with insurance companies. The last time I finally was so fed up with the whole game I hired an attorney right out of the gate to handle the whole matter. I never thought that was a good idea because I would be paying them and cutting into my rebuilding fund, however, they fight like hell for you (and themselves because most work off of a percentage of the total claim) and because of this most of the time you probably come out ahead even after their cut. Not really applicable for a claim on a car only but if there is significant property and damage at stake it might be worth checking in to.

    Been there before and will be there again. Take one day at a time and things will be better than they were before the storm one day.
