The damage may be worse than you think - I would suspect with that amount of damage the boot floor and possibly rear chassis legs may be wrinkeld or damaged a very common occurence in modern cars due to the rear end crumple zones. I would also suspect the insurers are letting you keep the car as the scrap value of metal is low at present and may cost them more to transport it. If you haven't already sourced the cost of repairs by a registered repairier I suggest you do so. Also remember the vehicle will now be listed as an insurance write-off so you may have great difficulty in getting insurance cover.
Before going any further it may be prudent to have the vehicle assesed by a competent vehicle repairer to ascertain the full extent of the damage
