My dad's van got hit by an EU worker today.

Could it be a right off?

I just hope that said EU worker was taxed and insured.

Doesn't look like it. Seems like the bumper has taken the brunt of it (as it's supposed to) and there's just a bit of a dent, unless there's been some structural damage underneath that we can't see, which the assessors will figure out. Assuming it is just what we see, that would only be a write-off if the van has depreciated to the point where it was practically worthless before the event.

A new bumper end cap costs £7. I can't really tell from the photos whether the wheel arch trim needs replacing. If it's still in one piece it should go back on with some new retaining clips, which are about £2 for 10. If it's broken, you can get a replacement from a breaker for £35, possibly less locally. The bodywork damage isn't worth fixing, as it'll all be covered by trim.

Looking at the state of the other vehicle, I'm genuinely impressed at how well the Transit Connect has held up.

It's clearly some nice, hot Stella he's got there.
