    Default The hail stones in Leicester have ruined Insignia!

    Hi all,

    After the hail stones today in Leicester (they were huge!) my car is covered in bumps. This includes all over the bumper, roof, boot, side of doors (where handle sticks out) - see what I mean.

    I have two choices, the first is to leave it but I bet it will be devalued massively.


    The second is to claim on my insurance, but what is the likely outcome with something like this? I mean it is everywhere so will they pay out of replace pretty much the whole exterior of the car?

    Any advice would be great thanks! With the co-op.

    i would like to say that the Insurance company would repair, but seeing how most of them try to get out of paying, they may say its an act of god

    Its a bit dark to take photos - it looks really really bad, apparently I can claim on my car as it is damage and it looks dreadful.

    If you have fully comp insurance, then this should be covered
    You are probably looking at a complete loss as repairing each panel will no doubt be greater than the residual value of the vehicle

    I would suggest waiting until full day light and take photographs of the entire vehicle (walk round) then one from the front and rear, both including the roof
