Smashed my bike off the roof rack

Post by Graearea » Wed Jan 10, 2018 11:58 am

Managed to drive into a height restriction barrier with my bike on the roof rack. I've dented the roof really badly and destroyed the frame of my mtb
Can this be claimed for on my house insurance or are they gonna hear the word car and tell me to get lost?
I'm with aviva..
I'm not gonna claim for the car roof as I don't think k it's worth it. Might just get it filled and re wrapped :(

:( Certainly have a go on your Home Insurance, any barrier damage will go on your car insurance though.

Will the roof dents pop out?

Try and pop the roof dents out or even see if a PDR guy can come and do it.

The barrier was fine. Just rang the insurers.... No cover for my bike. Oops!

Graearea, dude, I admire your honesty!

Good luck with the dents, I hope they'll come out as filling etc sounds like a can of worms..
