    Default Dam! Someone reversed into me!

    Well someone reversed into me whilst I was in the pub, they just drove off. They cracked and pressed the grill in, and put a crease in the bonnet. We think we have them on two sets of CCTV, so should find them.

    Any guesses on cost to repair? I've no idea yet. Its only relatively minor damage but my excess is £400 because of my age. So if the other party don't pay it might be worth me doing it myself!

    Needs new bonnet/dent pulling out, grill, and obviously a spray to the scratches!

    Blimey a lot of bumps on here of late. I didn't think insurance counts as it's on private property? I hope you find the person to make them pay for the parts.

    Insurance covers anywhere the public has unrestricted access (as do normal traffic laws) unless specifically listed otherwise. Otherwise even car parks wouldn't be covered etc.

    Had to cancel the claim. Insurance was due and so if there was a claim in progress I lose no claims discount, which means it over doubles for renewal (from £600 up to £1300) My excess is 550 so it really isn't worth me claiming.

    The insurance won't chase up the other party unless they think there will be a claim. so looks like i will be footing the bill.

    If it helps I made a claim 3 mths after it happened one time, woman hit my parked car, reported it but nobody put 2 and 2 together until a bloke up the road asked if I'd got it sorted, he had all the details indoors for me, so you could possibly wait until after you renew.
