Well went down back to the shop to watch video. Manager was rly defensive the whole time and as we play back video that's shitty as hell it keeps cutting out for the back in the garage cams. Didn't happen out in the parking lot.
Not sure what I can do besides file a BS report where nothing will happen.
Wish they would just own up to it, because it's obvious they rubbed something up against it.

Is it a independent shop? Might be hard to get them to admit fault. Worst case get the Local PD involved. Don't really think that it's worth that trouble. Maybe write a review on Google and Yelp to give others a heads up.

If it's a chain store contact HQ.

Honestly the damage looks very minor. More like scuffs than anything else.

Yeah it's minor scuffs. But I certainly can't be paying for that right now. I'll take more pictures so you guys can give me some informed advice.

It's NTB. Of course it has me second guessing myself now, like it was there before and I didn't see it or something. Maybe my neighbor with huge obnoxious truck tires. It would've been seen though. And the fact none of the guys there working closely to that area said "oh yeah that was there when you brought it in" is also a clear indicator to me.
