    Just having a look now, not sure but I think i'm good for about 2000 with 100 excess.

    I really hate myself at the moment. I had debugged the screen washed and waxed the van and leathered all the windows. Had a cuppa with my other half and then was was thinking I would leave Hoovering out the van until in the week but decided I would come out put her on the levellers and finish Hoovering.

    Two things went wrong...
    I over shot the ramps
    I had put the ramps on the wrong mark (nearer the garage)

    I think its called a chain of events. :cry:

    Gutted yes, but I just checked my Insurance and Im covered so not feeling so bad now.

    Just need to find out what to do and how quickly it gets sorted.

    I said we might not make it to the Northern Show but if its an easy job maybe we will, just don't know "what happens next" until I call my insurance.

    It could have been that washing machine going into a spin that distracted you or similar.:BigGrin:
    I did the same some years ago, reversed into the open garage door, does make you swear.:Wink:
    Hope you soon get it sorted:thumb:

    Oh dear, I really feel for you. It's one of those 'but for the grace of God' moments and it happens in a split second. :cry:
