- So what happens to all the flooded cars and caravans in mid Wales
When we had similar floods I know of a local car dealership who were self insured other than liability insurance. They shipped all the cars to one of their other branches and dried them out. They then just retailed them out.
I made a quiet call to both trading standards and press and neither were interested. I would hate to have bought onePosted 5 years agoprojectMember
Scrapped, or dried out.
A freind boughtan imaculate Peugot lastyear, when she braked hard, you could hear water sloshing in the bodywork, and if left in the sun, all the windows steamed up.
So are waterlogged cars supposed to be destroyed or can they be sold on, legally.
Oh she sold it on soon after.Posted 5 years agoavdave2Member
When the Sorting Office in Lewes was flooded a few years ago all the vans had to be replaced and someone came and bought all the old ones and I assume eventually they went back on the road. I imagine Post Office don’t actually insure their vehicles but have a fund put aside to cover claims against them thus none of the vans would have been written off.Posted 5 years agoglobaltiMember
I bought a transfer box off an 11,000 mile drowned water board Defender. It only cost me £300, was in immaculate condition but was full of the foulest smelling greeny grey emulsion. It actually smelled like EP90 mixed with garlic, really disgusting. Bacteria grow well in warm water/oil emulsions. After fitting it I ran it round the bloke three times filled with three changes of cheapo Comma engine oil before refilling it with EP.Posted 5 years ago
