    Help on damage from major pot hole - HUKD community aleways knows best

    Hi guys just after some advice. My wife hit a big water covered pot hole last week, as two other cars did and the Fire Engine that arrived just after. It was a burst water main, the water company closed the road for three days. The RAC replaced the burst Tyre and the car is at the garage. We are awaiting the estimate on the Mini, but the belly pan, front bumper needs replacing as at the plastic mounts are now broken. I have sent pics of the road at the time, our car, fire engine, the road during repair, fire brigade and RAC report etc. I have contacted the council and water company whose insurance companies are looking into it and coming back within 40 days? Anyone else had a similar experience and who ended up paying eh council or water company please? Many thanks and appreciate the your time guys.

    My dad did a similar thing. The council reimbursed him fully for a new wheel.

    Thank you

    I tend to avoid holes I don't know as you never know how deep n dirty they are

    Always best to spend a little time investigating them before riding over them

    Precautions, precautions....now what was that offer @ Lovehoney again?
