Hotel compensates for theft of vehicle side mirrors
A hotel located in the Buji Subdistrict paid the owner of a Porsche SUV 4,000 yuan in cash plus 2,000 yuan in hotel gift coupons as compensation, since the owner vehicle side mirrors were stolen while it was parked in the hotel premises.
The side mirrors of the Porsche Cayenne were said to cost around 4,100 yuan each, the owner only accepted the compensations because he had no time to file for a lawsuit. But a lawyer with the Shenzhen Law Firm said the hotel should fully compensate the owner’s losses. The vehicle owner checked in the hotel located on Dongxi Boulevard found his side mirrors missing the next morning.
The hotel director also reported that owners of Mercedes Benz parked nearby had their side mirrors stolen also. Police said the thieves might be the same ones responsible for the stealing of the Porsche side mirrors. The hotel security manager at first refused to compensate when the Porsche owner checked out the next day. The security manager even suggested to the owner to claim insurance or buying buy the side mirrors from the thieves, he even promised to look for the thieves and deliver them in four days.
The security manager comment prompted the police to suspect that the thieves have an inside connection, since the manager can deliver the thieves in four days. The Porsche owner even found it disrespectful when he was asked to claim the theft to the insurance company. Negotiations between the both parties ended with the hotel compensating the owners with cash and hotel gift coupons.
