Yesterday after posting that Piglet hadn’t had a wash in weeks. A courier in a LWB Mercedes Sprinter misjudged the angle pulling out of her parking space and dragged her van along the driver’s side rear bumper quarter.

She did knock on all the doors in the street to find the owner of the car she damaged (which is legally required that you at least make an effect to mind the owner so there is that). Her father came round later to see if we’d do the repair without involving the insurance companies but said no.

So new drivers side rear tail light and rear bumper respray. On a five and a half month old car. Doh.


Leaving it to the insurance company and the driver’s father to sort out the finances. Insurance is providing a free rental car as the bodyshop can’t give us a like for like courtesy car.
