    a friend of mine parked his car in another friends shed.The car was an 18 yrs old golf.The problem is that the car went on fire and took shed and all.When the owner of the shed checked his insurance he had it under insured.My question is though should the car insurance cover the building of the shed and its contents?The grand total would be 23000 euro.The shed and contents were only insured for 3000euro and the car was only insured for 800euro?

    I think you'd really need to read through the fine print of both insurance policies. Either one could have disclaimers that get them out of paying, but also each could have fine print that extends past the covered limit for that type of incident. If the policies are with good insurance agents they'll work with your friends to maximize the coverage. I would think they should both put in claims, just my feeling.
