Accident

Rather annoyed had an accident in my Blackhawk the other day see photo ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1469817469.384938.jpg

Insurance have got back to me and tell me they are going to right it off due to the replacement parts costing more than $35,000.00 and the cars present value $42,000.00 luckily I am just inside the two year limit so they will replace with a new car.
I just want my old one back,can't believe the price on parts
$4,000 for a single headlight ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1469817790.744429.jpg
Has anyone else had similar issues

Re: Accident

Wow. That's a surprisingly small amount of damage for the car to be written off Mick. Try to monitor where the car ends up... I'd be interested to see if it ends up being shipped somewhere overseas to be repaired. My Overland went to the UAE!

Can you recover your accessories?

Cheers,
Steve

Re: Accident

Thankfully it wasn't any worse and you got to walk away.

I would be happy it's getting totaled. I hate having any body work done on my ride. And usually after 6 months to a year I want a different car anyways lol

If you really want it, why not buy it from your insurance and fix it? Can you do that in Australia?

You'll get way more than 7k to strip it and sell the parts. Look at the motor & gear box

Re: Accident

Would bet they fix it and re sell it.
Can you buy a written off car these days and re register it,I thought they made that almost impossible to do unlike years ago.

Again, I reckon it'll go overseas. My Overland did... and it was in considerably worse shape.

Steve
