Bizarre occurrence of the day [Aug. 13th, 2009|10:21 am]
Douglas Spencer
This is odd.

In the post today is a letter from my insurers, telling me to wash my car and providing a list of hints on how to do it properly.

Here's an idea -- why not knock a quid off my premium next year and don't bother sending me letters like this again.

They tried to knock £500 off my insurance claim because the car was dirty ... no, really!

They offered me £800 for my totalled old Mondeo, in part because when they saw it in the repair yard a couple of weeks after the accident they claimed it wasn't in great condition and wanted to offer me a "fair" or "poor" valuation ... I pointed out it was in perfect condition and had gotten dirty while sitting in the yard, did a lot more fighting on it, and got the valuation up to £1,300.

Also a clean car apparently uses a little less fuel (in my case it's because of the plants growing on the roof! ... no, not really ...)

But isn't a clean car more likely to get nicked?
