The alternative is they ring you up at 4am tell you your bike is 120 miles away in the arse end of the roughest council estate and by the time you get there it's been nicked again only this time they find it the next day burnt out after its killed a four year old child playing in the street. Your insurance then has to pick up an even bigger bill. This is why all major UK insuances are more than happy to pay £150 + £20 a day.
However, if it was recovered by the Police for forensic purposes, then they are liable for the charges.
Hi Stu, Thank you for the reply.
I have paid the money as I wanted my bike back.
I need to clarify, that if the bike was needed for forensics then the Police are liable? Because if so, then I am owed £150.
Is there anywhere I can print this off from please?
