Send your other half to Specsavers.
50/50? Between what and what? Surely we're not talking about a write-off?
I reckon it looks quite hard-squeezed, so it might need a new section welding in rather than bending and stretching back. The door definitely needs replacing too - probably the whole door, not just the skin.
It's shocking the damage you can do at 10mph. I can't talk - I reversed mine into a lamp-post, despite having sensors. I was proper annoyed after, I thought the beeping was just it sensing the kerbstone. It was a very unusual lamp-post, in that it was right up to the kerb rather than being at the back of the pavement. Luckily I just got a scuff, as bumpers are lots tougher than doors.
yes the fella said 50 repairable and 50 write off wont know til the assessor has had a look at the report which i will probably hear monday or tuesday next week its a 15 plate so damn annoying not knowing whats happening maybe he to kill my partner in the meantime !!!!!! the mobile fella also told my partner to drive the car until we know whats going on with it
Ah ok Moe, a year old mobility car must surely be fully insured so just let the insurance company sort it out.
Yep, we have all done similar in various degrees. The first time I put my Berlingo in the home garage I totally forgot about the shelf on the wall that was above the roof of my previous car, The back door still has the scars!

That won't write it off! It's 5-600 quid at most, most places would sort it for that I'd think including new trim and clips, he's talking out his arse or you misunderstood what he meant! Main dealers might charge 1-2k to fix, but that's a simple panel damage job presuming floor hasn't gone which as the door rubber looks straight I'll assume hasn't been touched
