We have our trailer back!

Click here to view the 'The Trailer Story' page

Our Horse Trailer has been found! Thanks entirely to a man who is from either Ifor Williams (the trailer people) or Identequip, who was at an Auction just South of Manchester and saw a trailer he was suspicious of and checked out on his PDA, and saw it was ours!
What are the chances of that? Although the truth is it is known as a place where many a dodgy deal is done.

It's been held in a secure compound near Macclesfield. And all down to a brilliant system where Ifor Williams tell a particular company the serial numbers of the trailer that's been stolen, and this company has dudes going round auctions etc looking at what they think are 'suspicious' trailers etc. Excellent dude man was at the auction and thought 'Hello hello hello, what's going on here then?' and checked the number on his PDA and Voila!
Thank you so much Mr PDA checker man. I bet you were woop! woop! when you saw it was a stolen trailer.
The Police suspect the seller will say he bought it off a big boy who ran away, so they may not be able to charge him......

Of course, there was always going to be a sting in the tail, and who better to cause it than the Insurance company? Yes, true to form they've tried to wriggle out of much of their responsibility, even to the extent that they have refused to arrange it's return and we have to drive down to collect it from Cheshire. And we have to pay all the storage and recovery charges and then claim them back.

And we have to pay all the storage and recovery charges and then claim them back. Their argument is that as the trailer hasn't actually been stolen they haven't had to pay out for it's loss, so it's technically still ours and so it's our responsibility to go and collect it! Talk about taking the Mickey! Blooming cheek!


Well, we went down yesterday (nearly 200 miles) and collected it and they've obviously mistreated it a bit, it looks to have been crashed into something as well, damaging at least two wheels and tyres and a mudguard, it's lost one of the springs off the ramp and the cover off the forward ramp spring, and absolutely everything from inside is missing, except the partition. We're really mad about it too as the Police had released it a week after it was recovered but the Insurance company and the police and the Equipent Register couldn't all agree when it would be ok to collect, with the result that it accumulated over £500 in storage charges while they all mucked about.

Suffice to say that I'll be sending a very strongly worded letter to the insurance company about all this. You put yourself in their hands and then this is what happens.

Insurance Companies? That's why they are in my Mr Angry pages.......
