hi guys newby here so please bare with me and I hope this is the right forum for my questions, last year my 17 year old daughter purchased a 1988 ford fiesta as a project ( needing work ) for when she passes her driving test, I was tasked to do the work on the car as i work at a garage involved in vehicle repairs and recovery, I asked my employers permission to bring the car into work and use one of the car ramps for the repairs needed and was granted the permission to do so in my spare time, a few weeks after the work had started in October 2016 the garage was broken into and a fire started which caused some significant damage to the car, blistering paintwork melting window seals carpets roof lining dashboard ect rendering the car beyond economical repair, at this time the garage was deemed unsafe and closed down for over six months before the companies insurance started the work on repairs and emptying the garage, about 5 weeks ago the fiesta was removed from the garage by means of a winch dragging it out causing more damage to the underside as the rear wheels hubs and fuel tank had been removed for repair purposes and then being left outside for 2 days before the insurance company sent another recovery company to remove the car, im actually a little upset at this as at no time as the insurance company spoken to me about the car to ask for value details or to inform me or my daughter of their intentions with the car, now in the past couple of weeks ive asked my employer 3 times for the insurance company details as I wish to contact them regarding the car but the answer from him is he will ring them to see and they are out of the office, this seems to me to be a stalling tactic, my problem is not knowing who is liable for the car now, the garage that employs me or their insurance ? as the car wasn't on the road my daughter didn't take out a policy of her own and now she as no car ( as we don't know were its gone ) and no pay out for her loss, can anyone shed some light on whether or not I have a right to make a claim against either the garage or the garages insurance for the loss of the car. many thanks mark
