You were doing our insurance companies job for them, then. No doubt it did speed things up.


Not on the first one, as my insurance in that case was TPFT. On second COMP one yes, but knowing the tardiness of insurers and the cosy "let's hump both parties with increase" attitude they like to have, I'd call it doing myself a favour.

A girl I work with went through her own insurance after a non-fault minor bump.
As is the fashion now, as soon as they knew it was non-fault they palmed her off onto some claims management shitehawks, no doubt earning a tidy referral fee in the process.

Anyway these bastards had her in an overpriced credit hire in no time, her car got fixed but now, over a year later, she is getting stressed out as the credit hire company is taking the other parties insurers to court as they're refusing to pay the £130 a day hire fee, they keep ringing her to send this and that as evidence, threatening that she'll be landed with the bill if she doesn't comply.

When my Subaru was stolen my insurance company also put me through to one of these sets of bastards, although once they were clear that I wasn't injured and had another car available they transferred me back.

Dealing with the other parties insurance direct is the best thing IMO, saves cost all round and may contribute in some tiny way to reducing everyone's renewals.

Your insurance is not there to look after you any more, I'm afraid. Report something like this to them and they just enter Infinite Gouging mode.

That's a grand result on the Almere, best you could hope for I think!

My insurance company told me to deal with the 3rd party's Firm as otherwise I would incur an excess. Her insurers were Churchill and they were great to be honest, everything went smoothly.

I'm after a set of steel wheels in 15 inch flavour for the N16
Id take a whole car if cheap enough if anyone sees one up for sale for less than 200
