    • Hi, She said the machine actually tells you how much you have to pay and you pay on your card. I've actually emailed evology who make the machine to ask for an explanation as to how this can happen - in essence it is 1min over! With regards to the 8 mins one, she is adamant the the machine said no charge when she left - her ex-boyfriend was with her in the car and he confirmed this so god knows what is going on. Worth chancing the set aside? With regards to G24, not done anything yet - not sure I want to alert them to the other address - should I just write and confirm the Scottish address with no reference to anything else? Thanks for your time FTMDave. T.
    • Hi BankFodder, thanks for the reply. The firm was T B Plastering & Decorating in Callington, Cornwall.  They have a facebook page which I can't link. We have already sought the advice of a second plasterer. He has seen the work, conrfirmed its way out of any NHBC tolerance and well below the standard of any professional plasterer. We are currently awaiting his quote to remedy the awful quality work, but he has said it will definately involve ripping out and re-boarding two entire window reveals, moving two door frames outwards, possibly new fire-rated cement boards in the fireplace if I cant chip off the non-compliant rubbish which was put on there, and knocking off several blown corners and bodged internal corners. He also confirmed that the whole lot was plastered in one thick coat, rather than two thin skims as normal. This means that as it continues to dry, more cracks will appear as the outer face dries faster than the inner face. Indeed, cracks are still appearing one week on. When I confronted the original plasterer, I gave him several opportunities to get the work sorted, but he just stood there looking shocked saying "What do you want me to do?"  When I replied "I'm not a plasterer, what do you think you can you do?", he just repeated over and over "It's within tolerance, what do you want me to do?" It was clearly going nowhere, so at that point I invited him and his labourer to leave.

    • 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.

Right Some Advice


The Email Saying They Were Going To Cancel My Insurance Was Sent On The 16 June

Insurance Was Cancelled On 16 June.

Does Not A Recorded Letter Need To Be Sent To Confirm Receipt Of This. An Email With 12 Hours Notice Does Not Cut The Mustard.

I Could Have Been Driving Down From Scotland


It Was The Broker Who Cancelled The Insurance, All Payments Were Up To Date


So I Have Been Left With No Insurance Or Adaquate Notice To Cancel, Payments Up To Date


Can I Do Any Thing About This


Ive Requested Details Of There Complaints Dept

I think its common practice to cancel policies when no NCD has been received, though it would be better all round for the insurer to chase it or charge additional premiums whilst waiting.


I think you have been treated unfairly, and i also think the FOS would agree.

What About Giving 12 Hours Notice To Cancel By Email


I Thought They Had To Send A Recorded Letter Saying They Would Cancel On Xyz Date


Being The Insurer Would Be Liable For Any Accidents Being The Policy Holder Was Not Informed

The letter doesn't have to be sent recorded delivery, however I believe they do have to send a letter to the last known address giving 7 days notice of cancellation!


An email on the day the policy is cancelled is totally unacceptable!!!!!!

If you were paying by DD they could not take any increased payments for the removal of your ncd without your authority. Our company writes to advise of the increase and to call etc to confirm that you are ok to pay the extra. If no response they send the cancellation letter.


Agreed that emailing cancellation is a no no.

  • 2 months later...

My boyfriend's car insurance was cancelled for no proof of NCB. We had recieved a few letters and contaceted our previous insurer regarding NCB.

A month passed and we went on holiday . On our return their was a letter saying my credit card was refunded half the premium. The other half was on cost of cover , brokers fees and commision and admin charge which amounted to £100.

My boyfriend contacted the company NCI insurance services and was told as soon as he got the proof to fax it or mail it and they could reinstate the policy. A few days later and during which time he was commuting by train to work I faxed the proof of NCD and phoned them only to be told a new policy costing £270 would be taken out.

I want to complain as I didnot recieve a written notice of cancellation . Moreover I have not been refunded the entire amount I should have been . I did not receive a terms and condition booklet and didnot get a chance to reinstate the policy.

Will I be able to get some of these fees refunded? I have since paid out for a new policy with another insurer as I did not want to deal with these rip off merchants!!!
