Slightly off topic, but IMHO mate if the insurance company wants to take your car before having made an offer I'd tell them to do one. The car remains your property until after they have paid up, just like if someone was buying it. Tell them you want an offer in writing before you let them scrap it.

EXACTLY I have heard to many nightmare stories of insurance use a local breakers to collect there car they then get an offer from there insurer but dont agree to it so agree to icking your car back up and you then find half of teh smods have been stolen due to the pikeys who work at the breakers yard.

seriously tell your insurance company to get ****ed and send an official offer in black and white.

who is your insurance company by the way?

rite I have helped you out here bud lol just really quickly sent my mate a txt who works in the law side of things.

said insurance companies pick up your car so they can take it to a garage so it can be properly inspected and not done just by the side of the road!

if they say thats the reason they wish to take it then there is nothing you cna do.
they then evaluate what is on the car (modifications etc) and then the damage if it comes to more then 15% of the value of the car then its a write off! plus they do it to see if you have all your modifications declared to your insurer!

year of the car?

it all comes down to what is on there books and and to them if its an early/mid 90's car which It most probs is it wont be much value to them. you mightr be better off buying it back off them then strip it for parts.

Good on you for not letting them take it away.

I'd guess they would go to £3500ish.

DON'T accept their first offer....it will be shite.....ask for examples of similar cars at the price they offer you.
