Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Know the vehicle was not insured so under public liability is a responsible to repair my vehicle or not
Expert:  Daniel replied 12 days ago.

Hello
Well it would be a public liability issue. As the car park owners would be liable.

You need to send them a demand letter and attached to that document is a quote for repairs.

Sadly you need to do this as you are not insured. otherwise the insurance company would do the chasing up for you.

I wish to help you in this situation.
