  1. Accident damage.

    My life just gets better and better. Hope my beloved Celica can be saved. Stupid tw*t in a VW run in to the back of me when I was stationary and pushed me into an oncoming car. My car drives perfectly and everything works. Back of tailgate is a bit bent but still closes and locks. Bonnet opens and locks but is a bit tight on the catch. Considering the damage to the VW it shows hoe tough the celica is.

The cost of the paint and materials would be £730.64, The cost of the replacement new parts would be approximately £2,972.10, The specialist/sundry charges would be £234.00, and the VAT liability on the total would amount to some £942.75 giving a total repair cost of £5,656.49 including VAT. There is also a recovery charge outstanding, the amount of which is yet to be confirmed. The labour charge is based on 18.5 hours at a rate of £42.00 per hour. PRE-INCIDENT CONDITION The vehicle was found to be in average condition for it's age and type. PRE-INCIDENT VALUE According to the information available to us the vehicle was first registered in Mar 2002. The corresponding Glass's Guide (model code: 6PN6) adjusted retail value for vehicles of this type and age in the February 2018 guide is £1,285.00 at 117000 Miles, trade value is £410.00 and mid value is £847.50. We place the pre-accident value of this particular vehicle at £1,285.00 bearing in mind the condition described herein. We would emphasise that this figure is subject to consideration of the vehicle registration documents, purchase invoice and any relevant service records confirming the recorded mileage and vehicle details as contained in this report. Our valuation is also subject to the usual vehicle checks via H.P.I. And M.I.A.F.T.R. SETTLEMENT We consider that an equitable settlement would be £1,285.00 which represents the pre-accident engineer value of the vehicle of £1,285.00.
  9. In my new role as a NHS community support worker I will be using my car to do my rounds. On average I will be doing about 70 to 80 miles a day visiting about 10 patients. I will be getting mileage at 45p per mile after the first 20 miles. Is the Celica a suitable car for this job?
  10. Wright Off Valuation

    Can an insurance company force me to accept the wright off valuation of my car? They have made an insulting offer and I am disputing it.
  11. Wright Off Valuation

    The car is a 02 Gen 7 but I had a 06 engine with only 25k on it put in to it. Before the accident the car was immaculate inside and out with a full service history from new and I am only the second owner.
  12. Accident damage.

    Yes. I insured it with a value of £2000.
  13. Accident damage.

    Car is a CAT B. They offered me £1285 but I told them I want close to £200 due to the rebuilt low mileage engine and the immaculate condition of the car plus the full service history.
  14. Is a Celica the right car for the job?

    It is. Would the Celica survive the 1000 per month and the day made up of short journeys?
  15. Is a Celica the right car for the job?

    We do not get paid from the commute to and from the office. I live 10 miles from the office but someone living 4 miles from the office gets mileage after 8 miles. I am looking at a late 2004+ 140.
  16. Accident damage.

    That is my plan. Should get a few hundred for the 2006 engine. My only problem is storage and removing of parts. I live in flats with a communal car park.
  17. Accident damage.

    They want to get it into there possession first.
  18. Accident damage.

    Car being collected by the insurance company on Thursday. So today I took it to a local trusted bodywork fitter for a quote. He simply said it is too fare gone. The boot floor is crumpled there is a damage to the front behind the bumper. So my beloved car is dead Engine is from a 2006 model and has done less than 50,000. Leather interior is perfect as are doors and all the electrics are fully working. Still drives a dream,
