Someones Just Hit My Car! - What To Do? (Picture In Post #68)

Well, its my first car and I've had it since April 2008 and it was parked on my street and someone has reversed into the side panel behind the door, not got a picture yet but have one of my car before and circled where the damage is.

Now I've never been in this situation before but I'm a little less concerned as my mum took the number plate down and the casualty was waiting for me to come down but I was stuck in the bath, they said they'll return tomorrow.

So, my main question is does the area where it has been damaged look easily repairable (POST NO.68), if so would I be better asking for money to get it repaired myself or should I alert my insurance company now while I'm still waiting on tomorrow?

Messed my whole weekend and days to come :-(

Well the damage is not mainly paintwork damage, the panel has curved in, I'll get a clear picture soon, can't bear to look at it again!

Yes, I would cover over the number plate in the photo.

Ok, ok, I had a corsa when I was younger and if I remember rightly, they are made to be easily repaired through the different sections. Best to take it to a Vauxhall dealer and get a data sheet on what needs doing - then take it to a cheaper car repairer to get it done.

if you have the plate number of the vehicle, why would you want to spend your own money repairing it?

Do it through insurance or if your worried about your vehicle going into a category d/c cant remember which one but i wouldn't worry tbh because its a corsa and a x plate the impact will be little because the car value isnt high.

looks like hitler.

Well, the car does give me problems as expected from a 10 yr old car, its done 108000 miles, worth trying to get cash and get it repaired or take it through insurance with the possibility of having it written off?

Why were you stuck in the bath?

Get that fixed before the car

Personally my first thought would be to ring the police and report them.............not go on a shopping forum. :pX)

Well its weird, i've never been in this situation, with the registration, do I tell my insurance and it might get scrapped due to the damage or try get cash and get it repaired locally.

You tell the Police first...........they've left the scene without reporting it.

Is the paint broken or is the panel just pushed in?

sounds like they tried too report it - but he was in the bath? oO
#27
panel's pushed in, I assume the car reversed and the corner of the other car hit my panel making it curved just after the driver's door.

Shoulda rang the police, informing them what happened with their number plate. See what they can do before considering digging into your own pockets.

Not a big job if the paint is not broken......speak to the person first if they are willing to pay cash and they seem legit then do it like that...your car,your call

Not thinking of digging into my own pockets, considering the best option, I could be car-less :-(
1) Inform police/insurance, await for their details tomorrow and let insurance see the possible options, too much cost to repair then they class it as a right-off, good thing would be I get rid of it, 108000 miles, it wouldn't give me many years of peaceful journeys but then I'd be without a car for god knows how long

2) Get the other person to pay me a suitable amount and get it repaired locally and I get to keep the car with a few days of hassle getting it repaired.

The Swastika is a old Chinese symbol anyway. Just because one nutbag used it as a symbol shouldn't deem it offensive for everything.

That's like saying all people with one eye should be shot because they are like Gordon Brown. :D
