What would you like to know about this please?
What will be the cost of putting this right?
Ok but is there any independent evidence of that?
Will the new garage confirm it?
You do need to ascertain the sum of the claim clearly.
In principle, there is a claim here. The work was done and has had to be corrected. They are not entitled to claim for that.
However, the difficulty here is that at least some of the work that was done is of an adequate standard and they are entitled to be paid for that.
The cost of subsequent repair isn't really a reliable means of ascertaining the loss as at least some of it would have to be done anyway.
It should be simple enough to get the garage to clarify exactly what it would cost to put right the failings of the first garage. Then your claim would be for that amount.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Well, there isn't really a way of achieving that. if they refuse to pay then you either write the money off or sue.
You can always send them a letter before action warning that you will sue if they do not pay within a specified time period but unless that works you will have to sue.
Yes, you would get something. It will only end badly if you don't clearly ascertain the sum of your claim.
No problem. All the best.
