Training in Quarantine – Day 45

Dropped an email to the insurance brokers to ask when I would expect to see the final cheque for my car and they advised end of this week, early next. And I then asked about the hire car and they advised I am entitled to the car for another 7 days after the receipt of the final cheque.

Problem is, I can’t get another car right now due to the lockdown, but I did check on Car Wow and Auto Trader. Car Wow seems much easier to use. And I have already got an offer from a Toyota dealer in Woodford Green, about 1.5 hours bus journey away (three buses) and only about 10 miles.

Doing early shopping tomorrow, so only did my 1hr walk today, and no FitBit workout, but should be able to finish this week’s set if I work out Friday/Saturday/Sunday

A nice hot day, no queues except outside Sainsbury’s, and a few at Co-op on the way back.

Training in Quarantine – Day 36

My car was picked up and the salvage agent drove off into the distance in the pouring rain….

He drove out with fuel leaking from my car as he drove the card hard up against the van’s ramp and it made lots of scraping sounds as he was trying to force the broken bits of my car up the ramp too. The ramp was wet, so also lead to my car’s wheels spinning.

He tried to avoid signing the V5C, saying the office would sort it but I insisted he sign (I can do the SORN online, but would rather have something in writing in case).

I did the SORN online (https://www.gov.uk/sold-bought-vehicle if you’re curious) and got the confirmation from the DVLA that I’m no longer the owner of the vehicle, but will get a letter in the post. I still have the Section 9 from the V5C but will not need to send it apparently.

The pouring rain continued throughout the whole day and after I finished work, so no after-work walk as I normally do and have been doing every day after work.

I did do my FitBit workout though. 29 minutes today.
