    Default Grange ripped me off

    Hi there
    just took a garage to small claims court lost against this garage but the mechanic was told he is liable for payment to me but I have to start the claim again but this time against this mechanic. The owner of this garage told the court that his employers could buy and sell cars and they are insured to do so. I have been in touch with a number of insurance companies and told this is known as fronting and totally against the law. where do I stand

    any help

    Report the garage to the Insurance Industry Anti Fraud agency.

    And report it to your Trading Standards department.

    I suggest the CAB and/or Trading Standards.

    Waste of time claiming against a mechanic.

    Without sufficient information, it is impossible to answer your question. Although you have been told that your problem is with the mechanic, I don't think this is a guarantee you will win against him.
    I am going to assume you have bought a lemon from the mechanic working for the particular garage. In which case, why did you feel the garage were responsible?
