    RANT!!! Not Impressed!!!

    so as some will know an old dear went into back of me other week, requiring a new bumper etc, which in turn as delayed a few sales of bits etc and new bits arriving.


    well left car woth brother this morning for uk assistance to pick her up for repair, guy comes and collects, opens boot and the slams it shut ripping spoiler off in process!!!!


    next up gets it on low loader, rolls back off straight into lamp post denting the boot, brothers now shotuing and not impressed ready to hit the guy like.


    eventually brother has to put it on low loader instead of this thick t***


    i aint seen it and ive spoke to the company and reported it, said they look and then ring me, apparently accordding to brother on second phonecall the guy has marked paperwork saying it was done in accident lol


    gods knows rant over, feel free to comment

    Hey Wardy, sorry to hear about your troubles, some of these recovery peoples are right d**** as it's not their car, it's damaged already they dont give a hoot. Did you take pics before they took the car? you can submit these to your insurers so they know what the initial damage. Anyway, hope it all gets sorted mate.

    That sounds awful mate and I'm not surprised your angry. Hopefully it will all be sorted at no expense to you - I take it the original damage is being done through the lady's insurance?

    the same thing happened to my mates belmont
    this resulted in the car being written off as more damage was caused

    alot of these guys only have HGV certs and are not trained how to load a car

    hope it all gets sorted
    What is cross posting? Is it when you get angry and post it on a forum?

    That is awful mate.

    Did you take any pics of the damage after the woman shunted you?
    If so, you can show this to the company & prove the extra damage was done by their idiot.
    Your brother is also a witness to it.

    The dent in boot & ripped off spoiler will be hard for the woman to do unless she was driving a transit or summit.

    Is there any paint on the lamppost?

    That extra damage may write off your car, depending how bad it is.

    I'd write a formal complaint to the company too.

    Make the company pay the excess on your claim as compensation.

    Good luck.

    Too be honest Wardy, your borther did well not to pound the guy on your behalf. If that was my car I would've lost my head. When something means something to you and some thick moron with no brain cells get's involved and reaks havoc on your pride and joy it is never a good look.
