On my way to work this morning and i was met by a BMW leaving a side road. Slam the anchors on, air bags go off and i think SHIT. And the fact that the cartridges that set off the airbag smell like burning doesnt help as i scrabble to get out. Drivers door is wedged and i have to give it a good kick to get out. Fortunately, the guy that pulled out said straight off 'i know im not meant to say this, but its my fault' which makes things a little easier.
So, ive had it towed away to VW in harrogate who say its a write off. Prudential will go out with an engineer and assess, but am i right in thinking that if they think it is a write off, then they will make me an offer on what they think it was worth pre crash?? think i need to start looking at cars with the same spec and get some prices so i dont get a duff offer. good thing/bad thing that they decide its a write off?? Also, i think i get a free courtesy car covered by the other guys insurance company.
Any advice in the post accident time?>????
That pic still makes me
