    just crashed 0013

    just ran in the back of some guy in a civic
    after he had just ran in to a merc clk
    we was all leaving a junction and a lolly pop lady stepped out in front of the merc
    she slammed on he hit her hard and i hit him soft ish

    i have rung insurance and they seem to think it will be a write off
    its only
    bonnet / bumper / wing / lichts + indicators / inner plastic wing
    thats all i can see coz bonnet is stuck so leaving it till its picked up tomorrow to be looked at
    she does say coz of its age it will prob be wrote off
    and i will get market value
    i see this is where the problem will be
    in my view its worth 3000 min
    i know they will say 1500 or summat
    so i will have a look for good adverts for williams and get a good price to show my case

    i have said i dont want to lose the car so will see what they say


    any advise would be greatly appreciated

    this is my first proper crash/claim so not sure how they will screw me yet
    but im sure they will

    thing to remember nowadays mate. insurance companies want older vehicles of the road now. so they will write a any car over 10 years old off for the slightest bit of damage.

    I HATE the way they say this - how can anyone safely insure a classic then these days?

    What about all those cars that a worth a fortune now but had to endure a period where it was worth **** all?

    God it gets me so mad!

    Who are you with by the way?
