He has a Toyota Corolla which lives here for his use when he’s on leave. It is a UK car, but French registered.
Due to a mess up with an insurance company (Direct Insurance) where he thought he was insured but they had cancelled in writing to his address here, thus he never received it, the car remained uninsured for six months. Now he has lost his NCB, the premium has tripled and it’s no longer economical for him to keep it running . The CT has expired, and the carte grise has been lost.
Can he legally sell it for parts? It has a new battery and 4 new tyres.
Such a shame, it’s a brilliant little runner, never had any mechanical problems, but now it’s just an ornament.
Good point, Sue, but adding windscreen cover to my car increased the policy by about 200€ per year and a new windscreen (fitted) is 375€. It’s always good to do your ‘what if?’ and risk analysis before committing.
