    Insurance Payout 20th Mar 17 at 9:26 AM

    I recently wrote my car off and I'm insured through direct line, they have in all fairness been really helpful and got me in a hire car the same day as the claim. We have agreed a price (must note, never take the first offer, even if it seems good they will go higher) of 11,900, I was wondering, that was on Thursday it is now Monday, I did not expect any work to be done over the weekend but would like to know how long until I receive the money and what the process is from here as I can't speak to anyone in the payout team as they are internal. I would like to get the money asap as Ive seen a replacement car and would like to buy it before it gets snatched up by someone else.

    Any help would be great.

    What did the claims team say when you asked them?

    And could you put down a deposit to secure the other car?
