They kept us waiting for 2 hours with no update as to where my car was. They called and asked me 'do you remember what the guy looked like who you gave your car keys too?? When the police called Gold parking, ONLY then did they call me back and say the manager was coming to meet us because they believe my car has been stolen!!

Until then they ignored ALL my calls for about an hour. The Manager came to meet us and took us and our luggage to their office at around midday. He tried to reassure me that his staffs were looking for my car in all the car parks they used. He told us he could not work out how this had happened because all the keys are kept in their cabinet which is locked, but the keys are missing and there has been NO forced entry! To that I replied well it must be someone within your company? To that he replied that they had a disgruntled staff member who they fired 2 weeks ago as he was stealing money from the company.

He had a feeling that their ex-employee might have stolen my car!! He obviously saw ' a window of opportunity when the van driver takes all the keys out at the same time and moves cars around. The so called ex-employee must have quickly identified my car keys as the tag would have said MERC Firstly, Purple Parking at Gatwick is not under cover.
It was pouring with rain when we arrived and had to unload all of our luggage in the rain, rather that under a covered facility as per Heathrow. It was not made clear to us on arrival that we would need to leave the car keys with the member of staff in the car park, rather than at the central control desk.
I therefore had to walk out in the rain again to give the keys to the correct person. This also meant that I missed the first bus to the airport. The buses at Heathrow are small minibuses that depart frequently as per the customers' needs. The buses at Gatwick are large single-deck vehicles that seem to operate to a nominal timetable. The buses at Heathrow travel directly to the respective terminals. The Gatwick buses service all terminals on a 'round robin' route.
Our flight departed from the South Terminal, but the bus went from Purple Parking to the North Terminal first, at which several dozen other people tried to board the already packed bus. Eventually, we arrived at the South Terminal over an hour after leaving our car at the car park, after a very uncomfortable journey on a packed bus.
On return, at least the bus travelled directly from the South Terminal to the car park. Collection of the car was straightforward, but we were disappointed to find 2 sets of very muddy footprints on the car mats both sides - driver and passenger and a lot of white stain marks on the windscreen and driver's door window, which I had to clean off before we departed.
