Yesterday, while my car was parked, someone reversed into it and caused this damage - see pictures below.
I've spoken to my insurance and they have deemed it a write off because of the value etc and have offered me a price for the car however I do have a couple of questions I hope you lot can help me with.
- how can I keep my car and stop the insurance company from taking it away for the scrapyard or whatever it is they do with it?
- there doesn't appear to be any structural damage, just a knackered front quarter panel and the front bumper is slightly scratched. What are the best ways to get this fixed? Go to a scrap yard and find a replacement bit and swap it over myself or just take it to a recommended garage to get it sorted - if so please can you recommend somewhere...I'm from Wirral in Merseyside? Does it look fixable to you?
Any advice will be appreciated.
