    Just for future reference, Wal-Mart has the best security systems of any store in the world just about. If it was a car that did that, and you get the police involved (if you can - if it's enough damage) they will give a digital copy (or let the cops see their monitors) of the accident and they can pull license plates and more with their cameras.

    That's the aftermath of the baskets, the scratch is a lot worse than it looks in the picture.

    Wal-Mart attracts some totally belligerent riff-raff.

    That stinks, but I can offer you a little help on the repair side.

    The marks that look like white chalk marks which you are not able to remove by hand; if you have a 6 inch variable speed orbital polisher, I was able to get rid of the ones on my bed in about 5 minutes using a medium and fine liquid polish and then waxing the truck again to protect the clear coat.

    The one that looks like a round rust spot is another story, that will need some sort of body repair.

    Check with walmart to see camera of that time. If it shows a shopping cart did it they will pay to have it repaired. You may need law enforcement to view the video, as I had to. It cost Walmart 1100 dollars but it covered the repair on my vehicle.
