Help With repairing an in warranty x220? Damaged X220

Today my basically new x220 dropped from maybe 2 feet and the case ( where the heat grill is) broke a bit. The edge of the screen is split and the entire back and hinge where the monitor meets the keyboard is dented ( it looks as if the heat sink may be bent up. what are the steps I need to follow to get this fixed? I have ~270 days of warranty left.  There is a "compucom" service center near me, but what is the quickest way to get this repaired?

Your standard warranty won't cover the repair on user induced damages.

You should call Lenovo warranty to find out the best way to get it fixed.

But i would imagine it won't be cheap.

that is high likely hood that these items will need to be replaced.

That's some extensive damage for a 2 feet drop. I'd better be more careful with mine... :/
