The paper trail is what you have to work with. The adjuster quoted 4,000+ before the actual documented quote was given to you?

Did you get anything in writing? If it's not documented it didn't happen.

How can someone "quote" you for "$4,000+"? As I understand the term, a quote is for a specific amount, not for a specific amount "plus." It sounds to me like he gave you an estimate, not a quote. If so, then I say you have no claim unless you can prove fraud.

We mention about the rental to the guys, they say they will reimburse $350 if we dont rent a car, and receive nothing if we rent one... We are not going to rent...

What happened to the car? Your insurance or someone elses? It's a day late, but you should never let the insurance company take possession of your car until you have the payout in writing. Demand the car back, immediately. Get the claims handler on the phone and demand the estimate and rental car, immediately. Call the local rental agency and give tell them you need a rental, and give them your claim number, they will verify with the claims handler, which moves the ball a little faster. Call your state's Attorney General and tell them what is happening to you.

Been there and done that, they will pay you the $4000 if you know how to talk to them, like I do. I had a car run into my Printing & Sign Shop a few years ago and the Ins. co. said that they would give me $7900 to fix it, and when I got done with them they wrote me a check for $15,550. If you want to know how I did this, send me a 6 pack of beer and I will tell you.
