R.I.P Clio GTT - Sorted with Insurance



  Skoda Fabia vRS


well as some of you will remember i crashed my car on Feb 15th this year, and i didnt agree with the valuation i was offered by my insurance

basically i was offered £950 for it, which later rose after lots of phone calls to £1350

i still didnt agree this was a fair amount even though i did realise that the market for such a car was very limited

i made probably over 50 phone calls to them, and in the end sent a 3 page letter to the CEO which received a very prompt reply that told me this would be investigated

after 4 weeks i received a letter saying it would take longer to sort out, i waited and waited, another 4 weeks went by and i received another letter thanking me for my patience but advising me that i could now take this matter to the ombudsman

i was about to type a letter out to them again but just havent had the chance, when i received a phone call today

i know its probably worth more to some people, and to me, but after the hell ive been through i cant take it any longer and i owe my dad money for the valver ive got now

£2100 is what ive been offered which ive accepted, cheque is in the post

Were they only offering you RT money for the car?

I work for an insurance company I know what b*****ds they can be. Underwriters are roofless

they just kept saying thats what they thought it was worth and wouldnt budge, but i stuck it out and its more than doubled from the first offer

yea its been hell, luckily my dad has let me sort it out rather than hasslin me to pay him back asap, if he hadnt id have been stuck with accepting the £1350 which would have really annoyed me

still wish id been offered more but i cant afford to wait any longer and its not that bad an offer
 


So you actually succeeded in getting blood out of a stone - may not seem much as a replacement to what you lost, but i think youve done bloody well Brun. A moral victory to you kid!
 


If youve got a bit left over after paying off debt then get a £100 sh*tter from the auctions and save hard - dont get back into debt if you can! :cool:

Well done on getting them to cough up though. :)

god knows, ideally i would have liked to have been in a position to get it back and make some money from it, but i dont have the time, money, or land to do that and id rather not think about the accident anymore to be honest i just want to move on from the last car
