Quick update; Hastings Direct finally responded to my email and have agreed to send an independent Insurance Assessor, who has been in touch. They say that Copart will "remain on hold" while they await the outcome of the inspection.  Progress  :028:.

I should bloody well think so too.

Final update on this. thread. I am very chuffed to report that my trusty V has been fully repaired and it didn't cost me a penny.  I even got  new front tyre out of it, which is good as the old one was near the limit.   :152:

The Assessor from AIA was excellent and authorised repairs instead of salvage and Hastings Direct finally did the right thing and paid up.

Thanks guys for your encouragement and support.

Great result that Mop.

Moral of your story is,  don't let insurance companies bully you into doing something that is obviously nonsense.

I'm really pleased for you.     :002:  Geoff.

Copart collected my Tiger Sport and scrapped it, but that was very definitely broken  :whistle:

They were reasonable to deal with, but I doubt if anything goes there it then goes back to the owner.

Hastings will just assume that your bike's forks, headstock and frame will have suffered damage, they will not want the risk of repair and re-insurance, it's a gamble on their part and the easy way out for them is to charge it on to bozo's insurer and wash their hands of it, your premium will go up at next renewal, even if you have protected NCD, but not by as much as a repair, rather than a write-off.

It's all a con to reduce the insurer's liability and make easy money for the scrappers.

Well done getting it properly assessed and repaired with a new tyre to boot, again they will assume the tyre has had some damage which could then cause it to fail in some way later  :028:

Don't understand how Mops insurance will go up, when he has made a none fault claim.  :lostit: :006:
