If bluecycle have it you might as well forget it, they are a firm that buys all damaged vehicles and auctions them..that is the bad news...The good news is that if you haven't already accepted an offer you can tell the insurance company that you want enough to buy a replacement bike of your choosing.as they have already sold the bike on you should be able to hold out for something better than you had..You can claim that the bike was of great sentimental value..or something..even if you claim modifications they cant argue because if they say you are not covered because of the modifications they still can't hand the bike back..

If you have already agreed to a settlement you could send the V5c back to the DVLA with a letter from the insurance company saying it has been written off and they should knock it off the lists so that bluecycle cant sell it on after they have patched it up..once you have confirmation from the DVLA that the bike is registered as destroyed you can notify the insurance that unfortunately you returned the V5c to the DVLA because you didn't want to be responsible for the road tax..

John.

that sounds like fun, if its with bluecycle then it sounds like its been sold already.

sorry that your having such a bitch of a time, why is it that insurance companies etc can mess you about like this

totally wrong, its compulsory to have it, so they should be watched over a hell of a lot better and forced to give a decent service

its my albeit very basic understanding that until you have accepted a payment, the bike is still your property.

having an accident doesnt mean that you lose the ownership of that bike, only that its in theory being stored while the claim is processed

in these case`s you have 1st salvage rights on the bike, you own it not them
they can not refuse to return it
i bought 2 of my bikes back after being writen off, not cat A`s though
if they have already sold your bike on, they have basicly stolen your bike

if you want to keep ownership of the bike after an accident, you really need to make sure that you get that in writing when you take out the policy. asking after an accident is a bit like shutting the proverbial stable door,,,

Default Bluecycle

Hi gothtec,

I'm the Customer Experience Manager at Bluecycle. Please contact me at charliestewart@bluecycle.com to discuss the below further.

Reading the thread there is some incorrect information and I should be able to help.

Thanks,

Charlie

Its all right, its the lack of contact I've had... Asking repeatedly to be phoned from before they got the bike and yet nothing....

A simple phone call would have helped with sorting stuff and helping with the stress of the situation... The bike was my baby, I'd worked hard on it to keep it in good nic and make it run as it should.

Just a case of too many cooks making it too complicated!

From the bike they could tell it was a nasty accident, if they work with bikes they should know that being a little bit friendly will help so much with the whole situation.

Thankyou for the offer its now been sorted and my concerns have been met

good to see that companies must be googling their company name and seing if its being discussed anywhere.
