I did mean in the context of some other person causing it and claiming off them

This bloody language of ours, so easily misread

I have enough trouble with spoken word :D
I knew what you meant, only joking........but would be interested to hear what happened to the van just the same:D

could be worth buying back from the insurer and having it repaired with second hand parts. sounds dodgy, but its not and is frequently done. some people make a living from such easy write offs.
second hand parts about £1000 insurer and new parts 4 x as much, so it would qualify as an economic write off

Glad my gal is tucked up in a shed today, that's the second van whacked in 24 hours, shan't bother with the lottery, seems luck is in short supply this week. Norrie that looks ugly and expensive, hope you haven't whacked your head/knees or other bits and it is only the wallet that is hurting. :whistle::whistle:

Hope everyone's ok. Break my heart if I bumped my home like that. Hope it's sorted with little fuss.

Hopefully it looks worse than it actually is. I know its awful when we have an accident but at least there is no injuries. Hope you get it sorted or paid out for it ok.

Glad no one was seriously injured ..
Just be thankful you weren't driving a Vdub camper.. :eek:

Sadly, it does look bad and may well be an insurance write off.. There was a mini bus on here recently that was written off with just a damaged rear tail light ..

Please keep us posted with the insurance outcome.

as said, theres plenty of vans that age in the scrapyard being broken for parts. the excellent thing is all the damaged parts just unbolt to bolt the replacements on. being white, its bog standard too so may not even need paint if youre lucky

insurers will almost definitely write it off though as they always price for new parts and painting. if you dont fix it, somebody else will and will make some cash from your misfortune

If you are going to repair it yourself, I did notice there is a Ducatto, with straight Panels in one of our local wreckers, last time I was there was about 6 weeks ago . PM me if I can help!

Probably write it off mate. Not only the damage you can see, but looking at that oil on the road...........:(:(:(
