My BJCMicro has been broken on the plane. Claim on insurance, repair or just replace?

Just got back from Turkey and my bjc micro has been broken on the return journey sad

Its the harness bit, one of the bits that plug into the lap strap has snapped off.

Any suggestions?

claim for new one

Definitely claim.

Baby Jogger might be able to send you a new bit if you could work out how to get it onto the strap I guess but presumable you have insurance just for this sort of situation?

Give Kooltrade a ring on Monday. They are absolutely lovely and hopefully can help.

Yeah I have insurance but have never ever had to make a claim for anything and thought it would be a bit of a ball ache iyswim.

I will ring to see if I can get the part first, if no joy then I will contact insurance people.

Do I send them the whole pram?

i would not send the insurance company the pushchair unless they ask provide them with photos of damage along with your claim, can not see it being a hassel just a form to fill in and photos. but yes babyjogger may just give you a new strap with clip, so may be worth a phone call.

what a PITA!

(is it the one you bought from me? <think it's you> get in touch if you need any info)

Yep its me Frigg.

Thanks for that. I will try bj first for the part, then insurance if no joy.

Will it affect the cost of my holiday insurance in the future?

we claimed for a camera that got nicked on holiday and it didn't affect any future holiday insurance, not claimed for a buggy but do know it's a nightmare trying to claim if you didn't report it at the airport and get a reference number etc.

Just letting you all know that I spoke to the lovely people at baby jogger and they are sending me a replacement clip.

So easy to do and only £7.

I did buy a quinny zapp in the meantime though blush

Y'know, to cheer me up grin
