rang up my insurance company about my claim and spoke to a lovely girl, and was offered a sum to replace the bike with ... didnt accept the offer as did say i would look around the net etc for prices.

but how flexable are they? can i get them to improve the offer easily?

did hear a rumour of them getting their prices from ebay, any truth?

dont have any contacts in the insurance business to ask unfortunately

I have known people to not accept the first 2 offers and the insurance company has just upped the offer. Just takes more time to get the pay out.

Mother in law recently had her car written off.
They made an offer based on current value ie how much people are selling them for on the internet.
I tried to haggle,but they said they couldn`t go to the other insurance company with a higher amount,as they would refer them to the prices on the internet.
