I paid a locksmith 145$ to unlock my car (rip off) and I want to know what the general consequences of sending the bill to my AAA insurance company.

Also, what do you need to include in the envelope in order to mail the bill to AAA? (information wise, forms, signatures, etc..)

    Any charges you forward to your insurance provider, increases the premium amount you pay for the coming periods. To be honest I wouldn’t if I were you.

    Have you talked to AAA at all? That would be the first and smartest thing to do! They will answer all your questions and you won’t have to guess!

    If it is for covered road service, call your provider. They’ll give you the exact procedure to follow.

    If it is less than your deductible, no consequences. If more, expect a small increase if any. $145 is such a minor charge compared to a $20,000 property damage to another vehicle or house.

    The consequences ? lol. I guess they will either reject it, pay all or some of it. Why don’t you ask your agent about the “consequences” and the paperwork while you are at it?
    If you are concerned about a rate increase, know that these types of claims are normally not surcharged

    It depends how cheap you were when setting your deductible.
    There’s a chance they’ll send you a $250 bill and raise your premium by $150 a year.
    He ripped you off you rip them off they’ll rip you off. (past, present and future tense for you, you get ripped off twice, the second one bigger than the first)
    I get a spare set of keys the moment I get them, for anything.
