Great news,

I have a couple of set of 10" wheels reasonably priced if your friend wants to get it back on the road cheaply and not claim on thie insurance

Great news, sounds like you,ve got off light. As someone mentioned time to invest in a good alarm. It,ll pay for itself.

Your a lucky bugger there mate. Could have gone so much worse!

Was there no other damage then other than the wheels gone?

Really glad it has turned up so relatively unharmed!, it is pathetic they risk a criminal record for such comparatively inexpensive parts!

Not sure if this is 100% correct but somebody told me that the police refused to allow the owner to collect it, they insisted using a recovery company.  The recovery company picked it up with a strap through the doors and have caused loads of damage.

 

Such a shame, just hope the recovery people are well insured.

That is absolutely diabolical so unprofessional. If that is true about the recovery company should be named and shamed.

Yep, name and shame.

 

You have photo's prior to the removal, I would raise a claim on the recovery firm
