Not a right lot tbh the stripping it down, and mounting it on the jig, still an aprentice, and we work on bonus, so the guy i work with obv wanted it done as fast as poss to earn more pennys. So i was building up other jobs whilst he was on with this.

Thats what most people think, but in actual fact, its fuck all, its 7,500's worth of damage, but its not touched the chassis, just panels, that are easily cut off and re-welded on.

Nope, not classed as anything, To write a car off the damage must be around 60% or more of the cars value, or have completly fucked the chassis.

Not insuarance

Being paid for cash, its a company car and they have a daft excess like 10k or something, so its costing 7,500, so its cheaper to pay cash, than pay the excess.

5 :O lol weve just got the one like that, then a small quick pull system, still only one comp though. We got a new battery for the measuring arm, was about 500 lmao!! We just have normal clamps for general cars, where they bolt to the sills, then stuff like this BMW, we hire them from caroliner.
