On the 8th of May this driver has reversed into my parked motorcycle (legally parked on a street motorcycle bay).
Since then I found out footage of the incident and I made a claim on his insurance, I think this is when everything went bad, it’s been over 100 days now, the motorcycle is not even repaired and his insurance first wanted to write off as category b the bike for a ridiculous settlement figure - even before the engineers have inspected the motorcycle.
Once their engineers seen the motorcycle they never shared the report with my representative and continued to delay the process by saying the motorcycle was still a category B.
Engineers from our side were instructed to check the motorcycle and it came out as reparable.
Later on, being fed up of not having answers I decided to do some investigation and found out who did the first report, called and they said the motorcycle was considered repairable on the report.
It’s been about 4 months without my own motorcycle, I’ve made a report to the police but ironically the officer and only contact number I had for this situation has disappeared.
The third party insurance sent a cheque to me (a payment in lieu they call it, and to me, not the mechanic) without paying VAT or all the invoice in full.
I’m not sure if this is the way things go about when someone hits and runs but I believe that 4 months to do a 2 weeks fix (maximum) is taking the piss. Although I do not know what else I can do from here, I’m still short of money for the repairs and the situation doesn’t seem to have improved.
Here’s some footage
