Insurance Company Bastardry

A long story, but worth reading.....

About 2 months ago some prick ran into my gf's car out the front of our house in the middle of the night. I come out to go to work at 6:30am and find what you see below.

1) Asked the neighbours, didn't see anything.....
2) Rang the cops, wouldn't do anything.....
3) Rang the insurance company, couldn't do anything.....

SO, I decide to go for a drive and.....I find the prick about 100 metres down the road and around the corner.:s3

Knock on the door, wake him up and have a few "choice words"

Anyway, he had no insurance but the insurance company said "no worries, just get his details and take it to the panel beaters".

Cut a long story short - car is written off, 2 and a half months later still no cheque - lucky gf has got her sister's old car to drive around in otherwise WTF would we have done? I hate these bastards!

There's nothing like thrashing your boss's car! :s6:

There is an insurance complaints body that can help in these cases and make orders binding on the insurer if it won't voluntarily resolve the problem.

All insurers are bastards. Some are just bigger bastards than others.

Shyte mate.. that's some serious damage..

Bloody insurance companies suck.. Very happy to up your premiums, but very slow in paying up if they have to..
