They better! those bastards...

Make sure they repair/replace everything properly until you are satisfied it is back in good condition again.

if repaired properly, the value will remain unchanged.
I'm not saying there's anything wrong with a properly repaired bike. It's just that the uninformed public automatically wants to haggle when they hear "dropped." It doesn't matter if you say it fell over parked in your garage or at 11mph in a parking lot, dropped is dropped to most people. In fact, most people I know will avoid any bike that's been dropped regardless of the price. Of course it wouldn't be a problem if you didn't tell the buyer, but it's usually the first question anyone asks when they want to buy a bike.

yep think carfax... slamming into a semi is the same as hitting a parking curb with your bumper.
