    The insurance has decided on the car;

    We're getting the money for the car (cheque arrived this morning), we get to keep the actual car and the premiums are staying the same for the next year

    Apparently it's called 'cash-in-lieu'.

    I am absolutely stunned. Insurance that pays out when it needs to...

    That, and those floods in the States... I reckon the end of the world may be actually be nigh

    Congratulations.

    About two months ago my mother's car was tailended by a truck.
    Basically wiped out everything from the rear glass back.
    I thought they would total the car for sure but it fell just below the "write-off" figure, so they went ahead and repaired it.

    I was skeptical, to say the least.

    I checked in several times during the repair though and it's amazing how perfectly they were able to rebuild the car.

    During this time the insurance company provided a loaner (which they delivered to her house and picked up from the body shop) and dealt directly with the repair shop...my Mom never saw any forms or paid out a penny.
    It was completely painless (from the insurance standpoint at least) and amazingly efficient.
    I revised my opinion of insurance companies forthwith.
