Re: Kids threw rocks at my Kodiaq and dented bonnet

Hey everyone. I am still getting quotes but £400 seems about the going rate round here. I got fed up with waiting and phoned the school again. Apparently they have found a solution. They need to fill in an online form with the DfE and then someone will contact me to arrange an insurance settlement. ...

Re: Kids threw rocks at my Kodiaq and dented bonnet

Thanks for all the replies and sorry for not responding sooner, I have been at a conference in Birmingham. By way of update I phoned the Head of the school and kicked off that noone was taking it seriously and I had not even received an apology or even a sympathetic comment. I also gave him the crim...

Re: Kids threw rocks at my Kodiaq and dented bonnet

So I visited a school last week to observe a trainee teacher and parked my car in the school carpark. Matt, Are you a member of the teachers union, as they used to have a fund to help members whose cars got damaged like this. Been retired a few years now, so do not know if its still active. When I ...

Just out of interest, if you were using your personal car on work business, should your employer not be responsible really?
A good point and I don’t know the answer. It is worth finding out about though. Thanks.

Re: Kids threw rocks at my Kodiaq and dented bonnet

This is why when some bell***d smashed off my wing mirror, and another t**t keyed my car I just sucked it up and paid for the repairs! With this experience and the comments here I have decided insurance claim is not the way to go. I will try to get the school to help out, otherwise it looks like han...

Re: Kids threw rocks at my Kodiaq and dented bonnet

It’s all so depressing. Even protected no claims won’t stop your premium going up if you declare a claim in the last 5 years.

Re: Kids threw rocks at my Kodiaq and dented bonnet

Thanks all. I will try contacting the school for an amicable settlement on Tuesday. Otherwise I will have to let the insurance company deal with it. I don’t want to let this go out of principle. I would much rather not have a claim on my insurance but if that’s the only way...

Re: Kids threw rocks at my Kodiaq and dented bonnet

Hi

I am in Lincolnshire. Problem is it’s not just a dent, it was a chunk of concrete so it has scratched right through to the metal. Good news about the repair to yours that is a great price!!

Re: Kids threw rocks at my Kodiaq and dented bonnet

Thanks for the quick reply. I am hopeful that someone knows who it was as the school had notified the owner of the car next to mine. That was who the person was who alerted me as they had come out to check their own vehicle. I will call on Tuesday and ask to speak to her and see where it goes. Not t...

Kids threw rocks at my Kodiaq and dented bonnet

So I visited a school last week to observe a trainee teacher and parked my car in the school carpark. When I got back to it a member of staff was there and asked me to check it over as kids from the school next door had apparently been throwing rocks over the fence at cars. It was dirty so I couldn’...
