Don't fall into thr trap of presuming your premium won't increase even if you have protected your 'no claims bonus'. All you are doing is protecting the percentage discount NOT the actual premium an insurance company will quote you.

Had another call from Merseyside Police just to tell me once again they haven't come across my van. After asking the question, i was informed they have excellent mug shots of the person who took it, they are circulating on the police system and he is confident they will get him. I asked if i could have a copy which i could get put on Face book or even join and put it on myself, he said i couldn't do that but it will end up on the Internet. So fingers crossed.

No claims protection is worthless. Eg. Make a claim, next year your insurance WILL go up and they will say it's just an increase through the whole company. So you shop around and they ask if you've had a claim, yes but I had no claims protection, yes but not with us you didnt so you pay a higher premium still.

Good to hear they've got a shot of the thieving git bert. Hope he gets what's due to him. Wonder if he is local or just a chancer....seems odd that he went for a van with tools in it. Anyway hope it ends up with a result for yourself either way.

Knock me down with a feather, just had a call from the insurance company and they have offered me £1500 less excess, so a payout of £1350. Its come as a bit of a shock as i was only expecting about £350 after the excess was knocked off which i was going to refuse due to losing my no claims, also she tells me i have NCP which i don't recall having, so that must have been thrown in on the policy. Sitting here now waiting for the phone to ring and a voice saying," sorry we've made a mistake"

Good result Bert - I was told by a friend who worked in insurance "never accept the first offer no matter how pleased you are!!!"

Some years ago I too had a very good offer from a car insurance claim - told them I wasn't happy with £750 - How much do expect then they said - I said £800 - I'm not sitting here arguing over £50 Mr*** - should have asked for £900!!!!

Thanks all, good advice Buddy which i put in to force some years ago when my car was written off after someone run in to the back of it, actually got £1300 more than the first offer, on that occasion i knew they were trying it on. On this occasion, knowing the age and condition of the old van, this really feels like a Brucie bonus. In all honesty, if i was trying to sell it previous to it going missing i doubt if i would have put it up for more than £500-600.

Glad all's worked out well Bert. Every now and then things DO go right. The only downside to this affair is that the wee scrote(s) that took it are probably still alive !!

Nice one bert but you still could have done without the hassle. Let's hope the git still gets caught.
