In Topic: Accident Damage= Total Loss

09 March 2014 - 01:03 AM

my mondeo (2004  2.0 tdci 130) was written off just before christmas, they started by offering me £850, so i refused it and did some research of my own and within about a fortnight of me sending them all the info the offer had shot up to just under £1400. so its definitely worth persuing them for a better offer

well their first offer is £1200,  have told them that i am in the process of getting independent quotes so will see how it pan's out,

by the time the excess and final premium have been deducted it leaves me with £ 875 (solicitors will be claiming excess back though)

update:

 

well the car was inspected on the 27th of december nd i rell am not happy atall,   it has been clssed as a cat C  with damage to:  front bumper, o/s front wing, both headlights, bonnet, front grille, o/s front wheel

 

they have valued the repairs at £1650

 

what has annoyed me the most is that the "engineer" has stated that it was in below average pre accident condition,  all was imculate apart from the gearstick gaiter being worn. and that there are dents on the front n/s door (luckily i took pictures of every panel about 15 minutes before collection,

 

i have requested that another inspection be carried out (in my presence) and that thes issues are sorted very soon,

 

 

will keep you all posted on the progress

 

(on a lighter note i have seen a 52plate 2.0 tdci 130 ghia x for jst under £1100 with 115k on the clock)

cheers for the info so far guys,   well it was collected for assesment this evening soshould know soon,  

 made a call to the local dealer and the wing,bumper and headlight came to just under £700  so by the time paint and labour are added on i think i can safely say its probably gonna be a cat c,

 

i suppose the only plus to it is that it wasnt my fault,  just a shame they gave me a new astra for a hire car  (2.0 cdti 165bhp)  that drinks diesellike its going out of fashion
