At least the story has a happy ending (sort of - your pride and joy's been hit!) and that your getting it all paid for and new bumper and radiator. It also saves you the headache of going through the insurance to get it sorted. I wonder if he had insurance (wondering why he agreed to sort it all out for you (not withstanding the fact that his mate runs a garage)
, but hey if he's paying who cares eh !
Now then, I hope you told him you get paid £50 an hour
Im sure its all Kosha, just make sure the repairs are carried out properly as you'll probably have no comeback like if you went through his insurance.
He had stopped at the junction to turn left but realised he needed to go right. Because the junction has a wide end to it he had to reverse! What are bloody mirrors for
I did say "I take it you're insured", to which he replied he was but didn't want the hassle of ol' bill and insurance company etc. He said he'd only had the car a week and hadn't gotten round to taking the towbar off of it so forgets it's there.
With regard to the loss of earning's I only had one window cleaning job today which would have netted me £15. I told him that I'd be loosing £40.
Hi Scatz sorry to here this but as you said at least its going to be sorted out,well just make sure you have all details of his like name and address if you need to follow through if necessary cheers all the best Donald.
Got his name and address and his mate in the car, who is picking me up later to pay the £50 and take me to the garage, gave me his mobile number.
I rang my OH cousin, who's a mechanic, and asked him if he knew the mechanic that's doing the work and if he was anygood/cosha. He told me he is a well respected mechanic but like him hates French cars
Currently in scatz's garage:
2004 Subaru Legacy GT Spec B, a 2013 2.0 TDCi Titanium X Sport S-Max and a 2001 Honda NSR125R
