Super Job.

Which insurance did you use?

Mine were complete A****oles, when it came to mine being written off.

Towed it to their approved repairers after a month,
stripped it down to bugger all (to assess the damage....)
left me waiting for another month while it was being assessed.
Then told me it was a 'total-loss'.
Wouldn't let me buy it back for repair (even if they did the approved garage had 'lost' or 'binned' the parts they had removed.
Knocked £600 off the value I'd agreed with them as the LEAST I'd accept in fees and excess.

And all because some low life scum had decided to steal a car and use mine when they wanted to stop!!

It sounds like you had good service from your insurance company, that's worth paying extra for should you have a bump (19 years of Fully Comp Insurance and that was my first claim!!)

...if wishes were fishes, we'd all cast nets...

Dude that sux ass, i was just lucky tbh i was with swinton who use Allianz, i got he cheapest price of money supermarket and went with them expecting to never have to make a claim.

The assesor was a top quality guy though tbh, he said and i quote

" i'm not in the business of writing cars off to make insurance companies money "

What a guy !!! and the best bit of all !!!!! they sent me a 4 years no claim cert the other day lol oh happy days

Not sure I would want the car back TBH, with the money from the write off you could be a nice "un-hit" one and maybe even buy the salvage back from your original one and fix it if you really want to.
Each to their own though as long as you are happy
