So, there I am happily driving to the clients on Friday morning, going round a dual-carriageway roundabout just outside milton keynes. I'm in the right hand lane and this young girl is in the left hand lane when she decides to try and put her foot down for some unknown reason. The road was pretty damp so she lost control, span 90degrees so the car was facing me, then gained traction again and careered into my passenger door, completely caving it in, and hitting the rear-quarter panel and taking a nice chunk out of the rear alloy just for good measure.

We swapped insurance details etc etc and she accepted fault straight away which made things nice and easy.

Now this is where I am going to sing the AA's praises non-stop. I'm covered under a family scheme with them (so my parents, my brother and I are on the same policy) so I rang them up to see if they could recover me, which they did, but what I didn't realise was that they offer to sort out the insurance etc and recover all costs from the other side without you having to claim on your own insurance AS LONG as you were the injured party and not at fault.

So, they put my car on the back of a lorry; took it to the clients offices where I was supposed to be working for the day; arranged for a local garage that they work with to come and pick the car up to assess the damage and repair it; sorted me out with a courtesy car that is mine until the claim is settled and I have my coupe back (although I have a horrible feeling it'll be a write-off!!) and the only thing I have to pay is a £50 security excess deposit thingy for the courtesy car.

Oh and the courtesy car is a 09 plate, Lexus IS 250, fully kitted out.

AND, the collision happened at 8am....by 3pm my car was in the local garage to be assessed and I had my courtesy car parked in the clients car park ready for me to drive home at 5 when I finished.

I cannot recommend this highly enough, and thought you guys should all know that a) my baby's probably not going to be around anymore and b) that this service is available and so much quicker because the other party has already accepted fault.

All I have done is notified my insurers that I was involved in an accident, that the other party has accepted fault and that it's all being sorted privately therefore not affecting my NCB.

So as I said, I cannot recommend them highly enough!
