Am I just unlucky?

A week after I came out of Tescos to find a stray shopping trolly had scuffed my back bumper, some old goat had drove in to the overside not happy with this he has dented the passenger door with his wing mirror - yes it is possible.
So I waited for 40 minutes whilst he did his week shop and confronted him, he did not have his insurrance details with him so like a fool I took his name address and phone number.
I have called him and spoke to him and he decided that he was going to settle it without involving our insurance, but after getting a quote for the damage he has decided he is going to invole the insurance companies.
Now the problem is I still do not have his details - do I keep trying to contact him, chap at his door and demand his details or give him a good kicking?

Give his name and address to your insurance company and let them chase him.

Insurance companies are relentless. Get them to chase him as well.
Keep knocking on his door. If it helps, get someone else to chap his door while you hide round the corner so that he answers.

All you need is his registration number and your insurance will do all the rest, you don't even need his name or address. Speaking from experience.

From personal experience try these guys or a similar operation. Give them the details of the offender and let them get on with it.

Why use an accident management firm if you have insurance?

Re: Am I just unlucky?

a) because it didn't touch my insurance company
b) because they organised a hire car & collection/delivery of my car
c) because it was all so bl**dy easy rather than chasing my insurer

I don't work for them - I'm just a satisfied customer

cheers everybody.
going to phone insurance now after phoning the guy no less than 30 times.
Was unsure how much my insurance would do as i can only afford 3rd party after putting the 145 on its roof.
