wtf? write off woes
« on: 26 April 2007, 00:08 »
hey guys - I just need some advice

my missus was in her pug 306 when an idiot drove head on into her & wrote it off... she ok - the kids are ok, but the car is 'beyond economic repair'. The insurance company umm'ed and ahhh'ed for a while then offered us pretty much bang on the money with £1500. They made the offer verbally on friday the 20th april and the paperwork arrived on monday - she posted it back this morning.

We spoke to the insurance company today and they agreed that we would go along and take the tax disc, the alloys (and 6 day old yokohamas!) and cd player from the car at the garage that inspected it.

Slight problem - they salvage guy they authorised collected it on the 17th  :sick: !!! They won't even have the paperwork yet!

Are they allowed to fugging well do that?

Gonna phone them in the morning & kick up a stick, but now i'm worried that car is already broken & the bits are gone


DD :cool:
