This is an interesting one. I don’t know exactly how theft claims and insurance work in Canada, but here is my best guess. You don’t have an insurance claim, the repair guy resolved that with his. You have a contractual/business relationship with the repair guy. He needs to be able to replace the machine that you brought in to him or give you what it was worth. You should get out of the deal whatever you think is fair, but not worth more than the machine you brought in. I wouldn’t take the check unless you were planning on upgrading to a new one anyway or if you can’t work anything else out. If he doesn’t have something else to offer as a trade, then Greg’s idea is great. This is a repair shop after all. They should have a pretty good idea how the machine will work and be able to back up the warranty. If they won’t consider the warranty, consider that a good sign you don’t want that machine.
