Re: back from holiday..bikes tolen,house broken into...

If you haven't got insurance high enough to cover the whole bike then don't claim for a whole bike. I used to work in a bike shop and we would do quotes for sets of parts separately, if it wasn't assembled then it was a pair of wheels, a pair of forks and a frame built up with the other bits etc. with nothing over the limit for one item you have on your policy I:

Get some photos of the bike up too as it may be spotted!

Re: back from holiday..bikes tolen,house broken into...

Came back from a lovely holiday and found the brand new Stihl 261 chainsaw had gone.

The old chain saw gave out just before we went so I dented a credit card big style for the 600 quid to get a full on monster saw.

We process about 10 cord a year to cover our heating and hot water. So yer clockwork meccano saw is not going to cut it.

The saw was brand new and stached in the depths of my wood store - you would need to know where it was to find it.

I am well bucked off as we simply don't have the dosh to replace the saw, the insurance will not cover it as it wasn't locked away.

I live in rural West Wales and nothing has ever been nicked from here - ever.

Did I mention I foster and we have had some seriously delinquent young people here but none of them has ever nicked from us. We have had some full on crims here, police down the drive wondering why our house was the centre of a ring of TWOCED burnt out cars, he never stole as much as a quid off us, when he left he used a hookey credit card to order us a state of the art computer, I had to send it back but the thought counted!

We are well short on cut firewood and we really need a mountain of wood cut in the next few weeks.

Even a hint of who did this and it's going to turn ugly.

Feel for you bud, not good at all when stuff like this happens especially when they've been in your house.

A sad thought but someone obviously knew you were away and what bike you had..

Keep safe :)

Foot prints are just as good as finger prints buddy. they can use specific details from whats left to actually determine the robber. More so if its a lowlife that the plod are familiar with.

fingers crossed they find them buddy. Keep an eye on ebay and also take a look around the local cash converters. They are industrious little buggers when they brake in but they are too stupid when it comes to flogging the goods.
It's a gut-renching feeling buddy and I'm sorry to hear you've come back to bad news. hey, at least its not the lock up?!! Hope you've been round to check it and you still have possession of the keys.
