  1. If the total is over £135 (I think) the carrier will be looking to collect duty/VAT from you before delivery. Are you sure 123 have the correct contact details for you? Another one of the joys of Brexit
  2. Just to clarify the delays with cars is more likely due to a global shortage of chips. There are very few silicone manufacturers and one in China had a fire and was/is closed. This is why deliveries are generally much longer just now and the likes of JLR are on reduced working. I assume you don’t want to hand the car back?
  3. I thought VM had a moving home clause that let you out if either they did not have coverage or it was not appropriate to transfer
  4. Ok that clarifies things, so where did the £2500 go that you got for the sale of car 1? If this was a recent swap then the garage may not have sent the payment yet. I would talk to the garage personally and ask them where it is. However you did use the term part ex, which does mean the valve of that car was used against the new one. Have you double checked the paperwork to ensure it’s not shown against the new one?
  5. So was the list price on the new car £4900? It sounds like they used the trade in as said part ex against the new one. So you would still have to cover the outstanding balance for car 1 unless they rolled it in to the new car finance. But from the sound of your post that did not happen.
  6. Their brochure shows the suppliers equipment / pipes are not included. So if the leak is between the tank and the intake it’s out with the contract. is it an LPG tank buried in the garden? Ours it rented from the company we get gas from, but even then there are strict rules in place should it fail.
  7. Yes the V5 reference number changes when you change the plates, so the one you have is obsolete. it’s difficult enough normally to get through to the DVLA, so I don’t hold too much hope. My son bought a new car a couple of weeks ago. He got his V5 in the same week. If the car is being sold fairly soon, while it may be inconvenient, I would be tempted to leave it and ask the garage to collect it using their dealer plates. If it was their fault the sales was delayed I’m sure they would support this. other than that you should get the document in the next couple of days. Just one question, did you update the insurance details with the new number?
  8. Remember, if they are doing their job properly, they won’t have much about you, unless you only just left their employment. We delete almost everything after 3 months
  9. So let’s say you won’t get more than 1 hour for lunch, so 48Hr/wk is your paid hours. That gives you 2496Hrs/yr at £20k yours hourly rate is £8.01/Hr. if you are 21 or 22 you should be on £8.36 23 or over takes you to £8.91 so unless you are younger than 21 you are below minimum wage and they are breaking the law if those are the hours you are contracted for.
  10. Can you confirm the hours as you have shown 7 days?
  11. We pay our staff a salary. That is however broken down to an hourly rate to ensure they are above min wage. They tend to work the contracted hours. However if there is something exceptional they would be paid OT based on their rate. How many hours do you work over the 6 days? By reading your post it seems that you are not going to be happy working 6 days, so the contract is almost immaterial. Perhaps start looking for a new role?
  12. You need to see a contract to understand what your payments will be. However £20k at 40 hours is not much above minimum wage, working 48 without overtime payments would bring you below min wage (potentially). Regarding your hours, I assume you have not opted out, but 48 is still the continuous max without doing so. But the holidays is interesting as you are entitled to 5.6 weeks paid time per year. I’m not sure they can force buy them from you.
  13. From the Pirelli website Repairing Instructions Premise: examination of a damaged tyre and execution of a proper repair are the responsibilities only of a specialized tyre dealer. Pirelli does not assume any liability for operations performed by third parties. To perform the repair of a tyre with Seal Inside technology it is necessary to remove the layer of sealant in the puncture area within the tyre until you reach the impermeable butyl layer, for an area with the same size as the repair patch to be applied; after removing the sealant the repair operation is equivalent to that of a standard tubeless tyre. As is evident, this operation to remove the sealant from the puncture area inevitably means that the treated area loses the special technical feature of Seal Inside.
  14. Cancel the order and wait a few weeks/months. The manufacturers will start loosing orders and have no choice but to reduce the list price. There is hardly any choice left sitting below the £35k mark, so it won’t take long for them to fix it.
  15. Some tyres have what is called rim protectors. It’s an extra part in the side wall that give some protection against kerb marks, but it’s only a piece of rubber and it is absolutely possibly to deform it and damage the wheel, so if the op was prone to marking them it would be of benefit. Also if you change the tyres the next set might not have the feature.
