    Sat in the house just before 8am.

    Bang, alarm going off.

    A woman who lives down the road had lost control of her car and gone into the front of our van. So, that's it clobbered at the back and the front now. Bloomin' marvellous.

    Well one things for sure now Graham. Your not going to get a badly repaired van now. The problem is which one of the now 2 insurance companies is going to pay to replace it.

    Sorry to hear about the frontal re-arrangement of your van :Sad:

    I would make sure you de-magnetise the van. It would seem to attract large metal objects :Smile:

    Bad luck Graham, that's all you need, might have been better chancing it on the drive with the builders.

    Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, we're only waiting for enemy action now! :Angry:

    Well Graham there is a good side to this at least you hadn't had it repaired from the first one, before the second.

    Hope your luck changes soon.

    What terrible bad luck, god know how the insurance companies are going to sort that one out. they usually say are there any other insurance companies involved.
    Thankfully no one was hurt, things can be replaced.

    I really hope this does not delay your claim :Sad: Your postcode just got elevated in their risk charts, lets hope your premiums don't go up too much.

    So sorry to hear about this Graham, and like all your other friends we hope the insurance companies manage to sort themselves out and that you have a replacement motorhome soon. If you need a courtesy motorhome I have one you can use :Rofl1:

    Happy Christmas

    Just think how cheap it will be to put in on a ferry now.

    Keep this up and you'll be able to take it on Ryanair.

    Unbelievable, you're not parking it up on the A19 are you?:RollEyes:

    Some say these things come in "Threes", I hope you are not on the flight path for Durham Tees Valley Aiport.....:Eeek:


    I do hope you get everything resolved quickly.

    Goodness gracious me - what's your number plate - make sure I don't park anywhere near you in future. :Eeek:

    On the other hand - if your motorhome is so attractive to other vehicles - parking next to you is probably the safest place to be. :Wink::thumb:

    Merry Christmas
