Bumped another car while parking

Post by Kenickie »

I stupidly had a moment's lapse of concentration a few days ago and reversed into another car's bumper while parking and cracked the number plate. I left a note and they have contacted me and said they'll get a quote for getting a new one. If I just pay them directly which seems easier would you want anything in writing to confirm what this was for and if so, what should it say?
If your back's against the wall, turn around and write on it.

How annoying, Ken. I think you’re right it’s probably easiest sorted between the two of you rather than getting insurance companies involved. Some kind of waiver sounds very sensible, I know insurance companies use them when settling claims. I guess asking them to confirm in writing that the payment for the repair of number plate is in exchange for them waiving their rights to any further claim - and couch it in such a way that you’re just keen to cover yourself :breezy:.

Obviously don’t pay for anything until they agree that they waive the right to any further claims.
