My husband and I used to park our vehicule in an underground parking space in a building a couple of blocks away. We live in a country where youth are known for burning cars just for fun so we thought that it would be safe. We rented a parking space from a person and a couple of months later, my husband needs to run errands and voilà, no car. We’ve reported it to the police, our insurance company and the building’s security guard. The security guy says that unfortunately, cars are stolen or broken into every two weeks or so. We’ve informed the parking space owner that we no longer need his services and now he’s posted little ads around the area stating that he’s renting a parking space. I’m so angry and I want to write a little note discouraging people from parking their cars there, especially if they own a certain type of car.
What would you do? I’m also thinking about the owner. Maybe he needs that income but then again, the next idiot to park his car their is probably a poor punk like us who can’t take another blow to their finances.

abricot_chat: Is the parking garage code protected? Honestly, you yourself said : We live in a country where youth are known for burning cars just for fun so we thought that it would be safe.
This could have happened anywhere, no matter where you parked your car. Should it have been more safe in a parking garage? Well, possibly. But that doesn’t mean that someone can’t get access. To me, it’s no difference than the parking garage at an airport or anywhere else. Anyone can walk right in. Does it suck? Absolutely!! But, how do you know it’s not happening in other parking garages, and you just don’t hear about it because you weren’t parked there?
I would let it go. That’s what having insurance is all about.

I don’t think it’s your place to “warn” others. Maybe post a review online about this particular garage, but why directly sabotage the owner’s attempts at income for something he had no part in. Sorry to hear this happened to you, but try to move on & let it go!

Thank you both for your replies! You put things into perspective and I think you’re absolutely right about letting it go. I’m still dealing with the anger of having something taken away from me that it’s difficult to contain my emotions. It’s just a car and my health is fine so I’m dropping it.
