Somebody crashed into the side of us on fri. Not a lot of visible damage, just rear drivers side door and wing. The back shock is clonking like mad and the engine is rattling, probably a sensor gone as a result of the knock.
Repairers came out this morning to look and said it'll probably be a write off as a door alone would cost £250 + respray. Its only a T reg vectra.
If it is a write off how do they work out what to pay? Is it the book price or the price you insured it at, or neither?
Thanks for any help, just would like to have a rough idea in advance so we can start looking for another car.
