Are they liable too?

Very bad start to the week, but these things happen...

I park my Golf GTI at my sisters place every Monday morning because it's on the way to work.

This morning, there was a large commercial van blocking her driveway because one of her neighbours is moving.

I tried reversing to ask if they could move, and in doing so I scuffed & damaged an opposite parked car.

Of course it's my fault, but -

1. Shouldn't the commercial van also accept some responsibility?

2. Should they have even been there?

3. Shouldn't they foot some of the repair costs?

None of this would have happened if they weren't blocking my sisters drive.

Please share your thoughts, thank you!
