Re: What should I do next? My car got hit...send the quotes to your insurance company. You are paying them to work for you. Seems to me they need a kick up the backside. You have to keep on at them by phone and letter.
Re: What should I do next? My car got hit...That looks to me as if The dent could be pulled out with the right equipment. A good panel beater would make short work of that. Have a look at "chips away" company they handle that kind of work. trot along to you local outlet and ask them
Re: What should I do next? My car got hit...RS is correct in his advice, TessA - when we contacted our insurance, we were given the name of the individual who would be responsible for handling our case and it would be good if you could establish someone specific who is dealing with your claim.
Re: What should I do next? My car got hit...Could you open the door and take a photo of the A-post (the bit the door hinge is attached to)?
Re: What should I do next? My car got hit...Thanks. It looks like the A-post is slightly pushed in putting the door out of alignment. It could probably be pulled out but it would have to be done by a bodyshop. If the car is driveable take it to a bodyshop and get them to look at it. Tell them it's not an insurance job and you just want the car to be safe to drive and for the door to close properly. It does sound like the woman was uninsured.
Re: What should I do next? My car got hit...It might be both the frame and the door frame, if itís an older car I doubt the insurance company would want to repair it as itís too labour intensive ( thatís where the money goes) if they decide to write it off, then you could offer to buy it back, and source any parts from a scrapyard and if itís economic, have it fixed, although any body shop may not want to do it and may give you an exorbitant quote, it sounds a bit dodgy to me, that your insurance company doesnít seem to want to rush to help you, also just be aware that a lot of insurance companies use claims management companies, they will give you a hire car, and if your insurance decides that itís a knock for knock claim, they may persue you for the cost...which can be a few thousand quid...
