    Jill was phoned back by James from Claimline this morning. He took all the details of both incidents to deal with the various companies involved.

    Later on Jill had a call from Craig at Highway (part of LV) who are our insurers arranged by Frank Pickles. Couldn't have been more efficient. Checked the details and said they would sort everything out. He rang back later to say that storage had been arranged for an assessment of the damage/cost and the van would be picked up this afternoon by an agent of Britannia.

    Britannia rang to keep us informed of when the recovery vehicle would arrive and it did so when they said. Driver from Ron Perry Recovery very efficient and took the van off to the arranged place a couple of miles away.

    Next thing we know is a call from the servicing company saying "we were only asked to give an estimate not store it and we charge for storage". Told him to ring Craig. He rang back later saying he had spoken to somebody else, not Craig, and still wasn't clear. So, Jill rang Craig back, he said straight away that storage charge is a normal cost that they pick up in any case (so what was the servicing company on about) and that he will sort it out. Goodness knows how the service company think they can examine the van sufficiently to give a price without storing it.

    So the story so far is Claimline OK, Highway OK, Britannia OK, Ron Perry OK, service company ???

    Watch this space :BigGrin:

    Might as well, nowt on telly.

    I see a new TV series. I'm rich.

    Strictly Come Bumping.

    Naturally I'm head judge. Clarkson has agreed to be number two. Vickie Buttler Henderson for the bit of glamour. Boris Johnson for the slapstick.

    Does any council grit estate roads these days?

    Thing is the van was hit by a full time delivery driver and a local resident, both of whom should know and expect that the road would be icy and (as a default) drive slowly to compensate. Given that the first impact shifted the rear of the van by about 2 feet and the second impact (from a Corsa) shifted the front by about a foot it would seem that neither driver was going particularly slowly :Doh:

    Redcar and Cleveland Council???

    I once drove the motorhome back from Keswick across the A66. Everything was fine till we hit Marton Road in Middlesborough (main trunk road to and from town) It was 6 inches deep in hard packed snow/ice.
    When every other council in the North grits the roads you can tell when you come into Redcar and Cleveland area as you bump up onto the snow/ice. :Angry:

    Grit?? doesnt happen, Dave.
    Our place is known locally as Narnia.
    The place has been like a skating rink for the last week.
    Not even bus routes gritted so far.
    Father in Law (81) had a fall on black ice near to his home, all day in hospital, thankfully nothing broken. Couldnt admit him as no broken bones.
    Sent home on Saturday, into the care of?????
    Socal Services to assess him today with a view to respite care until he's mobile. Nothing as yet. I told him not to expect anything from them until after the new year.

    No money to grit due to government cut backs, they tell us. Conserving stocks for when it gets really bad.
    Another thing for some to blame the previous govt for, no doubt.



    Hope you get it sorted, Graham.

    Marton Road Ken? Still Robocop's Middlesbrough Council that, not Redcar & Cleveland. Mind, the standard of RCBC might have gone down a bit since April 2006 :Laughing:
