Vehicle was not properly insures - police was correct in impounding it

Ok. Has your car actually been sold at auction?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No - whereabouts of car Unknown - we are assuming it is at Charlton police car pound as we were took by a member of staff of JohnPyre Ednonton branch (they handle most if the cars being auctioned off by the Met police) after he checked his computer data base that the car is still at the Charltin police car pound but when asking directly the police either via email or phone they say they have now off where the car is
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
The reality is that we need to find out where the car is and they will know.
Generally speaking, if a car is not collected within the time period alloted then normally it would be handed over the auctioneers for sale.
If that has happened then that is not good but you are better off knowing that not.
It is possible that it has been retained in a pound but it isn't likely if you have exceeded the time period.
If they have denied you access to your tools then you would have a claim for the value of those tools.
The pound should tell you which auctioneers they deal with and whether the car is there. If you can get to that information then you can post back and I could probably offer more.
