Man leaves car with airport parking firm and returns from hols to find it ruined

A holidaymaker returned to find his Range Rover ‘smashed to smithereens’ after leaving it with an airport meet and greet company.

Mike Savage entrusted his 4×4 to Meet and Greet Manchester Airport Parking before jetting off on holiday to Majorca on Friday, April 13 with his wife.

But on the day they were due to fly back to Manchester, he received a text from the firm informing him his car had been involved in crash.

Bosses at the meet and greet firm, which is not affiliated with Manchester Airports Group, confirmed the car had been involved in a crash with two buses on the M60 on Friday, April 13.

Mr Savage, from Glossop, believes his vehicle must have been driven at speed to have ended up so badly damaged.


The firm denies this is the case.

Retired Mr Savage said: “We got back to their compound in Stockport and there it was, all smashed up.

“I know accidents happen but you don’t expect to come back and find your car smashed to smithereens.

“It was badly damaged at the front and the back. That can only have happened if it was being driven at speed.

“There’s been so much confusion about what actually happened. I don’t know who was even driving it at the time.

“When I rang the company’s insurers they said they hadn’t even been notified about the crash.”

Mr Savage says he has been told his Range Rover, which he purchased for £109,000 could be a write off.

The 64-year-old, who had paid the firm £38 for the meet and greet service, added: “All they did was send me a copy of their insurance policy.

“There was no apology for what had happened or anything like that.

"It’s not what you expect from a reputable business. It’s been a shambles.”

A spokesman for Meet and Greet Manchester Airport Parking said: “Mr Savage left his car with us on the April 13, 2018.

"And while taking his vehicle to our compound site, his vehicle had a collision with the two buses, which the driver claims was not his fault.

“We also have proof of an email which was sent to our insurers on April 14 which entailed the driver’s name and details, his statement of events along with the details of both of the bus drivers that were involved in the incident.

“We also have proof of mail exchanges between ourselves and Mr Savage, and we answered all of his questions and provided him with all the information he required.

“If there is anything we can do to further help Mr Savage we would be more than happy to assist him in this matter.”
