    • There's a thread somewhere about someone sending the baillifs against Wizzair that is quite hilarious. I would love to see someone do the same to Ryanair. Question is, should you be the one to take that role. You are entitled to the £220, if your flight was from the UK. If it was TO the UK I suppose it is more of a grey area... though the airlines I know have been using £220 as standard. Not that surprising for Ryanair, the worst cheapskates in the universe, to go for the lower amount, and if you forward this to the CEO he will probably have a jolly good laugh and give his accountants a verbal bonus. After all he's the one who said and I paraphrase "F*** our customers, they'll fly with us again anyway". While we would all love to see Ryanair get wooped in court again, I have to join my fellow posters in thinking it's not worth the hassle for (hypothetically) £7 and not sure it will expedite the payment either. It's already an achievement that you got them to accept to pay.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

I have my own IT company, but have been looking at branching into selling laptops and desktop computers to my clients. I'm totally new to sales of goods etc and just wondered if a few of you could clear things up. This is what I want to do - firstly buy the laptop from a company at discount prices, then sell the laptop to consumers with a cost plus on top of what I paid for the laptop.

 

Firstly is this a popular way of selling computers? Secondly where do I stand with guarantees and warranties. I have bought the goods off a company so everything will be in my name, how do I transfer everything into the consumers name or do I just give them the warranty that I had and invoice them with the cost of the product? Is the invoice proof enough that goods have been changed hands and that the product is now theirs?

 

If the warranty is for six months does that mean that after six months the consumer can no longer come back to me with any faults?

 

Lots of questions in there, I would be obliged if someone could put me on the right track!

 

Many thanks

Hi, we dabbled in selling on PCs and laptops a couple of years ago and gave up due to the fact that PC World and the like could supply better spec machines for less money than we could actually buy them for. I will say nothing about their after sales service etc etc but it just wasn't cost effective. OH does still do the odd bespoke computer but mostly does networking and repairs.

 

As far as the warranty thing goes, the suppliers we used would honour the warranty as they knew we were selling on to third parties. but the warranty we offered was only as good as theirs.

 

Unless you can source good quality machines and make a profit by matching the prices charged by the big boys (including now of course the supermarkets) then I think you are better off using your skills rather than trying to sell the hardware.

Let me just caveat - I'm still half asleep. Someone please correct me if I've stumbled anywhere...

 

Secondly where do I stand with guarantees and warranties. I have bought the goods off a company so everything will be in my name, how do I transfer everything into the consumers name or do I just give them the warranty that I had and invoice them with the cost of the product? Is the invoice proof enough that goods have been changed hands and that the product is now theirs?

 

If the warranty is for six months does that mean that after six months the consumer can no longer come back to me with any faults?

 

The Sale of Goods Act will apply differently to each individual customer's situation. Generally speaking though, the 'six month rule' is that if the product develops a fault within the first six months, it is assumed to be an inherent fault, and the buyer can rescind the contract or receive reparation.

 

(3) For the purposes of subsection (1)(b) above goods which do not conform to the contract of sale at any time within the period of six months starting with the date on which the goods were delivered to the buyer must be taken not to have so conformed at that date.

 

The Sale of Goods Act, however, doesn't just 'cut off' at six months - you are still liable as a seller for refunding, repairing or replacing a product that proves to be of insufficient quality, or not fit for the purpose for which it was bought.

 

14. Implied terms about quality or fitness

(1) Except as provided by this section and section 15 below and subject to any other enactment, there is no implied term about the quality or fitness for any particular purpose of goods supplied under a contract of sale.

 

(2) Where the seller sells goods in the course of a business, there is an implied term that the goods supplied under the contract are of satisfactory quality.

 

(2A) For the purposes of this Act, goods are of satisfactory quality if they meet the standard that a reasonable person would regard as satisfactory, taking account of any description of the goods, the price (if relevant) and all the other relevant circumstances.

 

(2B) For the purposes of this Act, the quality of goods includes their state and condition and the following (among others) are in appropriate cases aspects of the quality of goods—

(a) fitness for all the purposes for which goods of the kind in question are commonly supplied,

(b) appearance and finish,

© freedom from minor defects,

(d) safety, and

(e) durability.

 

If the fault was not caused by accidental/customer damage, and the product could be reasonably expected to last longer or perform better, you as the seller may still be liable to repair, refund or replace the product. Factors used to define reasonable may include price, advertised lifespan, a professional brand's reputation, and so on. You may have the faulty product tested to determine the cause of the fault and any possible liability before you decide which action to take.

 

If you are serious about this, please buy/borrow a book or two on the subject, and take a look around the retail:PCWorld/Currys etc. forums - you could find yourself on the wrong end of a civil court case or two if you get this wrong.
