GEMMY "I've been asked not to. Apologies. "

vicdicdoc Without naming the Ins Co, just allows other to fall into the same trap, I see nothing wrong in naming

redkite93 I've been asked not to. Apologies.

cabby Can we at least ask if it was a UK insurance cover on his vehicle.Because if it is I do not want them for my vehicle. 6 months without a motorhome, just the thought has given the wife vapours.

redkite93 im really not sure why it took so long as they said very early on that it was a right off....

Pat-H If you have full comp insurance then you would expect to get paid out in a reasonable time.
They would need to decide if the van is a write off (pictures taken at the time would probably be enough to show that)
The rest is down to the insurance company.
Even if you are at fault they still pay. It's just the recording of it as an accident of your fault or not that may take some time.

One tip is to advice the insurers of the lost enjoyment time and the possible cost to them in the form of a claim for a hired alternative.

cabby Assuming that his own insurance was a UK company, then no, 25 weeks(6 months) is totally unacceptable.Even if the claim is against a Spanish insurance co.
MaŮana springs to mind.

redkite93 Hi again, just to update you all with the good news.... the cheque finally arrived 10 days ago for an agreeable amount to father in law.
he drove back to portugal without a hiccup and he is currently enjoying the cycling and sun.
All is well.....
But it did take 25 weeks to pay out. im not sure naming his insurance company would be helpful as surely the claim was on the spanish lorry drivers insurance? correct me if im wrong..

Penquin Thanks for the update, you might like to name the insurance company so that others can be aware of their slowness in sorting things out....
