What Happens If Someone Hits My Fence With Their Car?

Neighborhoods may experience this more often because in North Texas there is an alley system that when someone is backing out of there driveway the neighbors fence is right there. However, if the home is located on a busy major street, they may be more susceptible to this situation. So the question is:

“What Happens If Someone Hits My Fence With Their Car?”

If this happens with a neighbor the best option is to let them know you hit their fence as soon as possible.  Tell them about the damage and you will cover any reasonable costs to repair that damage. Don’t let them come home to a damaged fence panel.

In most cases the situation can be rectified calmly when your honest about what happened.  Accidents happen every day for many reasons such as being in a hurry, late for school, late for work or just having a stressful day.

Depending on the fence damage, a homeowners property insurance policy usually will cover the damage. Sometimes paying for the damage out of pocket may be easier for both parties involved.  Most repairs we have found at Fence Makeovers are under $1,000.
