  1. Hi Was just after a bit of advice if possible, I joined a local exercise 4 less on 16.02.2015, I chose to pay £19.99 per month as this was a rolling membership at that time i was still residing in a different part of the country so there would be periods of over a month without me being able to go . After a couple of months I cancelled my direct debit as I was going back to were I resided and didn't want to get a charge for the month although I haven't been to the gym (as i know some companies do this). Came back to permanently live here and re joined the gym under a
  2. Hi ,I would please like some advice please regarding this matter. me and my partner signed a 12 month contract at exercise 4 less last December 2016. In August 2016 I decided we wanted to end the membership and cancelled the direct debit. Since then to which it is still continuing they will not leave us alone ,to the point of harassment now. I've been in touch with citizens advice and consumer helpline but they are not helping the situation , they told me to pay up. I've wrote to Harlonds/CRS numerous times and the matter is not getting dealt with . I have writhen
  3. Hi all, I bought an exercise bike last April online from Amazon using a 3rd party seller. The braking system has developed a fault which means now the bike is useless as pressure can no longer be applied to the spinning wheel using the friction pad. I have unscrewed the braking system today, it is an extremely simple mechanism using a bolt and a nut and a couple of springs. I have discovered that the nut that screws onto the bolt which you turn to control the tension is slipping which means that no pressure can be put upon the brake pad. Here is a vid I have made t
  4. Hope somebody can help advise me how to proceed with this, sorry is a bit long. I work as a support worker for people with mental health problems as part of my job I promote healthy living and exercise with the service users I work with. In July I agreed to take a service user to our local Exercise 4 Less (Wigan) and train with him, I can claim back my expenses from work as long as I am taking service users. We signed up but it was never pointed out that it was a 12 month contract I even asked "what if I can no longer make it to the gym due to work", in fact the
  5. Hi all so sorry for this... been a member for approx 2.5 years re joined January 15 so now out of contract, not used the gym for some time prob 6 months or so went on there site to cancel but couldn't find the "W" no that i was given when first joining to fill out the cancelation form, So instead Thought I knew better and canceled the direct debit now Im thinking I've done the wrong thing as I have received a letter from Harlands stating the normal- " ref your membership to exercise 4 less harlands administer the collection of all payments due under your membership agre
  6. Hi everyone, I was hoping someone could help me I joined exercise 4 less under a year ago with no 12 month contract paying 19.99 per month, around the new year I moved and it became increasingly harder to get to the gym as my house is now further away from it, I submitted a cancellation form to exercise 4 less website on 29th February as I wasn't going anymore, they said they would take one more payment off me as there was a 30 day cancellation period and not to cancel the direct debit myself they would do it for me. I recently checked my bank accou
  7. Hi, I am sorry for yet another thread on the same companies...I have been reading through a lot of them and it seems a common theme, but I struggled to see one that suited my case. So, I went to the gym for 13-14 months. When I was due to finish I asked the guy in there if once id finished my 12 month term I was OK to cancel my direct debit. the reply was 'yeah your only tied in for 12 month' So I then cancelled my direct debit and started at my new gym. I received letter from harlands saying the direct debit had failed and I now owed them the months fee plus a £25 admin fee. I tried

  9. Hey, I recently received a letter from Credit Resolution Services regarding my membership at exercise 4 less . Think you know how it goes: "We'eve been employed by exercise 4 less as your membership remains in arrears despite previous letters being sent to you. As a result of this, our fees totalling £102.50 has been added. Therefore, your account balance now stands at £207.47. WE WANT TO REACH AN AMICABLE RESOLUTION WITH YOU In order that we can do this, please ring our non-premium rate number - 01444 449165" I joined the gym about 2 years ago on a 12 month
  10. I cancelled my direct debit, a few weeks ago to exercise for less because the 12 months was up about 3 months ago. I didn't think anything of it, i thought it ended after 12 months but i was still paying i don't even go anymore. Today i got a letter from Harland's, wanting me to call them to reinstate my direct debit and charge me £34.99, even though membership is £10. Ive just cancelled my membership on exercise for less website, i didn't know that you could do that or i would have in the first place. I don't want to pay 34.99, ive payed it before when ive missed a payment,
  11. After obtaining probate to deal with my late mother’s estate I was contacted by the DWP in one of their standard fishing exercises re: benefit overpayments. This initial letter included the line “We will let you know whether or not we need to make further enquiries within 20 working days”. If only. Despite returning the form the next day I was chased for a response a month later. 2 days after that they confirmed receipt of my original response! Based on this my expectations of response time from DWP are poor. That was 2 months ago and I have heard nothing
  12. http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/health/nhs-chief-in-dignity-and-respect-vow-1373842 I got the feeling this is a pr excercise. Let alone the ridiculous situation of NHS as a subcontracter to a private firm for the Dwp assessments. At the very least Scottish PIP claiments wont have to face atos.
