Hey guys

some of you may know I had a bike crash last sat when a car pulled out on me. I need to claim for a new helmet but I can't find the recipt at all.

It was bought over 16months ago. What can I do?

Did you pay cash or use a card? If you used a card then the insurance should be ok to use the statement of proof.

Maybe if you used a bank /credit card to pay for it,a bank statement might help ???

I had the same prob with my bike. You can get a shop to value a new replacement for you in a letter on headed paper. Failing that you can always just take a picture of it and send it along with a catalogue print out of a similar helmet.

My mountain bike was 15 years old when it got ran over by a car. I had no receipt and they still paid out 200 for it, the bike wasn't worth a fiver.

I'd get in touch with a solicitor if you haven't already as insurance companies are useless at recovering costs.

Where did you get it from and (roughly) how much did you pay for it ?

Most shops can tell you how much an item, or it's replacement, costs. I know on our tills we can look to see every time we have sold a certain item so it's easy enough to trace, but Neil_c is right a simple letter from any bike shop (or Halfords) giving a replacement cost will normally suffice, a helmet isn't worth them arguing the cost over.
