Bike "write-off" quote

    I was involved in a cycle accident with a car a few months ago. The other party has admitted liability, and I require a quote to give to the Defendants insurers.

    As I needed to knock together another bike, I had taken the good bits off it to build another bike. The insurers are now requesting a quote from a reputable bicycle shop which confirms my bike is a write-off. The bike is 4 years old, and I dont have the original receipt. Frame, forks and wheels are all out of alignment.

    Shame they didnt ask for this earlier, as I'm now going to have to knock it back together for a quote. Any idea, how much a bike shop will charge for this? I suppose I should be able to claim this back.

    My LBS charged me £5, though that was 10 years ago.
     
  4. your looking at £5 to £10 but you can send a copy of the receipt with the quote and get it back.

    Just take the frame - should be enough to declare the bike a write-off.
