Apparently the police have identified the culprits, it’s all on cctv. They’ve jumped on my bonnet of my fairly new car and dented it.
My neighbour says it’s a no fault claim and I can claim off the uninsured drivers bureau.....but I thought that was only for drivers not criminal damage.
The dents are only cosmetic and I’m not sure it’s worth losing my £300 excess over. But annoying when the car is only a couple of years old. Neighbour says my car will be badly devalued but I’m the sort of person who keeps a car until it’s an old wreck so not sure it matters. Plus my insurance changes to a new company next week so it’ll be a right pita trying to do a claim with a company after I’ve left them.
