Accident damage.

Question

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.

Judging by the market,its not an unreasonable offer at all tbh mate.And yeah when you put down the approximate value of the vehicle when you insure it,it doesn't mean a lot in the event of a loss.Most policies will state clearly 'market value' unless you have agreed a valuation with them beforehand.personally i would try and agree a compromise with them and try to get nearer 1500 but if they dont then the original offer isnt bad anyway

I can't tell from those two pics., whether you have an electric sunroof. If so, the "Premium Pack", which consisted of Leather/Sunroof/Climate Control, was a £1500 option when new.

 

Just might help the ultimate settlement figure.

I sold a mint red premium one with a rebuilt engine for £950 about 5 years ago. That only had 92,000 on it. It took a fair while to sell as well. The prices have only fallen since then.

For the £45 I'd take the car back and strip it, then sell the shell on, for probably more than the £45 it cost you. Don't bother repairing it though.

So they want you to pay the storage fees?

Ok. That is the plan.

Who wants it?

Collection only.

 

Maybe put in the "cars for breaking" or "car parts" section? Just a thought...
