Heck, I had a worse vandalism / theft problem that this in North Bend (Coos Bay) Oregon back in the early 80s. At the suggestion of a cop that the tow truck operator knew, I left my broken Landcruiser in the police impound lot for a week until I could get back to retrieve it.

When I returned the wheels were removed, back door window taken out and all the stereo system gone.

When I told the un-interested officer that took the call I figured it was probably some relative of his he just smiled and walked away. Got no help from the police department at all.

Coincidence, conspiracy, or....cause-and-effect?

When our towed got banged up, USAA went after Roadmaster with a vengence. Everything was fixed...I had zero deductable. (about $9,500.00 damage)

Let your insurance company do the work.

I agree. Even if inside a fenced yard they still would not have any obligation to pay for any of the damage, but they should have covered the broken window with a bag and some tape.

If the carpets are just damp I'd not worry too much, but if they were soaked you may want them removed until they can completely dry. Not knowing what kind of car you have, some have a "computer" under one of the seats. If this gets wet (or any of the electronics, for that matter) you can experience intermittent problems forever, if not replaced.

Having handled a number of flood claims over my years with State Farm, it was generally accepted that if the water rose high enough to submerge the dashboard area we'd total the car. Obviously that is not the case here. It can be "repaired", but you should see if you can find someone experienced with flood damage, even though it was not a full fledged flood.

Good luck!
Pretty much what I am finding out that Enterprise is not responsible. Just wish they would have told me before the fact that they have had several problems with theft and vandallism in the recent past... would not have left the car there. When I told the lady that, she said we can't tell people that. Right. Went by the body shop that is working on the car this morning and was told that they were taking all carpets out and still trying to see if the seat would dry out OK. So far the bill is $531. and my deductible is $500. But expect the bill to increase. Ron

I would write a letter to the Enterprise president and tell him your story. He is an ex Navy pilot and named his company after the most decorated carrier in WWll. Make sure you sign it with your ret signature.

Is this the correct information?
Andrew C. Taylor Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
Pamela M. Nicholson President and Chief Operating Officer

Do you happen to have an GOOD address? Thanks, Ron

Wikipedia says Jack is the founder and Andrew Taylor is the current Pres & CEO. Hqtr is in Clayton Missouri.

QUOTE...Enterprise Rent-A-Car was established in St. Louis, Missouri in 1957 by Jack C. Taylor. Originally known as "Executive Leasing Company", in 1962 Taylor renamed the company "Enterprise" after the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise, which he served on during World War II. In 2009, Enterprise became a subsidiary of Enterprise Holdings, Inc., following the company's 2007 acquisition of Vanguard Automotive Group, the parent company of National Car Rental and Alamo Rent a Car.[1] ....END QUOTE

Picked the car up from the body shop this afternoon, $500. lighter. They said they got it dryed out and did not need to replace the seat or carpet. All the electrical stuff in the seat seems to be working OK. Ron
