    • then i'd simply stop paying the HSBC OD debt for an A/C of that age, there will undoubtedly be far more OD fees and the interest those have caused than the outstanding balance.   £4k debt on a credit Card is quite a sum, when did you actually last use it, bar paying anything into it? 2007 is of a date whereby agreements might possibly be dodgy...it does make one wonder why HSBC has never sold this debt on, as paying a small token payment since 2016? is only ever achieving one thing...running the SB date to infinity.
    • Yes i still have all the customers names addresses and phone numbers of all the leads, so i thing i should ring them all up and see what they say.
    • The largest single trading block and largest trader in services in the world - right next door Whoever would want to pay £188 million a weak in just customs bureaucracy alone rather than be part of it?   Rejoining is going to be looking over your shoulder forever because it makes solid business and social sense - and when we do rejoin, this experience we are currently suffering will mean it will be a generation at least before anyone without solid self interest reasons  consider leaving again.   Anyway, So which of the demonstrable Brexiter lies are you basing that statement on?   Cost savings ? - nope quite the opposite - already cost more than the entire cost of being in the EU and as stated above + £188M a week in customs bureaucracy alone, let alone all the businesses fleeing or folding the pound falling and unemployment increasing.   Trade deals across the world larger than the EU? - nope - no sign of that, quite the opposite, - even America whether Trump or Biden wins - although they will happily dump crap on us while letting naff all in from the UK   Sovereignty of parliament? - Nope - just scummy little liars unlawfully proroguing it and breaking UK AND international law and the UK's reputation.     Turkey joining the EU? - Nope - but they have got a far better deal than no deal   So which lie are you basing that wretched opinion of yours on?
    • It sounds as if there may be other leads which have led to pricing visits and may not have been paid to you either. Do you have records of these addresses and is there any way you might be able to visit to find out what has happened? If you have evidence that you have satisfied the requirements for payment on the various visits, and there should be no problem enforcing a breach of contract

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

HI

 

I purchased a kitchen from b & q, which was price matched. Good deal, plus a nice kitchen. Kitchen arrived, but hob missing.

Rang sthe store, spoke to the manager, he apologised nad said we will get that out to you. Arrived week later. In between that time noticed one wrong size unit and one damaged unit arrived too.

Anyway that was all sorted, again by a manager..different manager.

 

On Thursday came to fit sink and realise the waste pipes etc are missing.

Again rang store, manager adviced it will arrive, in the meantime you can buy one and we will refund you the cost..no probs there easily sorted.

 

Friday opened the doors, wrong colour, I wanted white but cream arrived.

 

Rang the branch again, kitchen staff said it will take 3 weeks for arrival, as this will be a new order. I stated its a replacement and 3 weeks is too long, can you sort this out quicker.

She said I will call you back, I need to speak to my manager.

 

I get a call back that the manager said he is not going to replace the doors. That was too much so I said I would come and speak to him face to face.

 

When I met him,he wanted to talk in middle of the store in one of the isles.

I refused to do that, and finally managed to get him into a cubicle.

 

He said when I got the units I paid half price for the doors, and now they are full price.

I adviced him, I dont know anything about half price, All I know is that I brought in a quote and you price matched it and beat it by 10%, thats your policy.

 

This idiot acting manager refused to exchange the doors, on base of price.

It was the same design, only different colour. todays price on cream and white is same and same all the time.

Then he says to me bring the doors back I will refund you for the doors and then buy white at full price.

 

I then said to him, may be I should return the kitchen in full, and then buy again and get it price matched, and he said ok.

 

Anyway this argument went on and on, he was rude and in my opinion had no brain or sense...not sure how he got into a managerial position.

 

I then stated your policy is 90 dyas for an exchange if not satisified yet its your fault for wrong doors.

 

He stated I am not going to exchange these doors, you can do what ever you want, complain to who ever you want,YOU GUYS NEVER GIVE UP, so go.

:sad:

THAT IS A RACIST COMMENT

 

At this point I lost it with this guy, I was so close to hitting him, as he kept talking to me when I told him I no longer want to talk to him.

 

Anyway another manager told me to get my old quote from previous company and if that states white we will change it. So 10 minutes later I arrived with that quote, then they said they will change the doors.

 

Now I am not bother about the kitchen, this manager is really bugged my and cant get the situation out of my head.

 

Anyway the main store manager arrived back from training today and explained to him the situation, and told him I am going to take this further, local paper and your head office.

 

So he apologised and said he assures me that the doors will be changed.

 

I told him, I am not bothered about doors anymore, I want to know what you are going to do about what happened.

 

He said he will fully investigate the situation in full and will meet up on friday,i can go to store or he will come to me.

 

I dont want the doors changing any more as the joiners cant hang about, so i need advice what I should do about this situation??????

No offence to the OP but has soon as someone mentions the race card in a dispute I tend to lose interest in their case

i think you are missing the point, if some one made a racist remark against you in that situation when you have spent thousands, you would know what i mean.

 

i am not using the racist card, if that was the problem i would have caused chaos.

 

how am i out of pocket, see if you can understand.

 

ordered a kitchen, paid over £7000 for it.

 

arrived 7 weeks later.

 

joiners started to fit the kitchen, i was quoted for 10 days from start to finish.

 

Along the way things have been missing from the packages or damaged.

 

so far the joiners have worked 14 days due to these delays, thats 4 more days, that means 4 x £125 =£500 loss.

 

Some things have still not arrived, one item due on 14 and one due on 19th oct.

 

The final straw wrong colour doors, first they would not not change, eventually when....and quote WHEN I PROVED THAT THEY MADE A MISTAKE, AND THEY HAVE NOW ACCEPTED THE MISTAKE, they said they will change the doors and will take 7 weeks to arrive.

 

I live in a house not a tip, means mess for another 7 weeks and on top of that means more expense for the joiners.

 

YOU ASK WHAT HAVE I LOST OVER £750 LABOUR 17 WEEKS OF MESS, NO KITCHEN.

 

THEY OFFER ME £50 COMPENSATION AND YOU THINK THATS GOOD.

 

SORRY NOT WHERE I STAND.

 

90% OF REGULAR CUSTOMERS MAKE COMPLAINTS OVER £10, AND THIS IS ON THOUSANDS.

 

WHAT DO YOU THINK, SHOULD I FORGET THIS AND LET THEM GET AWAY WITH THIS SO THEY CAN DO THIS AGAIN TO SOME OTHER CUSTOMER, OR SHOULD I MAKE A COMPLAINT TO HEAD OFFICE.

 

LET ME KNOW YOUR VIEWS, IF YOU AGREE WITH ME PLEASE LET ME HAVE SOME IDEA'S ON LETTER.

So, directly due to this issue you have lost £750?

 

If you are basing "you people" as a racist remark, then I think you are stretching at best.

Its rude to SHOUT.

 

also £750 is not thousands, and if you pay a joiner to do the work then it would have been a one off fee not on a daily basis

I think you have every right to be upset, wether is £7 or £7000.00, a customer should not be treated with disrespect in this manner by local management. I think you should use the main points from your original posting and persue this matter with head office. I wish you all the best.

If my advise is good feel free to tickle my scales

I Don't Think Your Reading My Text At At All.

 

I Have Spent Thousands, on the kitchen which you have albeit not exactly has you ordered so you have not lost thousands And £750 Is In Losses. - this is what you paid extra to the joiners, again I state a job is paid gfor until completion not by days worked, unless that is what you agreed with the kitchen fitters

 

And I Don't Think You Have Really Have Dealt With Joiners. nope do it myself, then I can only blame Me

 

This Is Not How They Work

 

They Quote You For A Job And They Tell You They Will Be Finished By So Many Days. Day Or 2 Give And Take.

 

But Stretching To Weeks Is Taking The Mick. why if the bits are missing, did you not check the kitchen when it arrived, I am sure I would have opened at least some of the door fronts etc to see what was delivered

 

Because I Don't Have Everything DELIVERED, ue to incompetence of b&q does not Mean Joiners Are Going To Hang Around On My Job For Months For The Same Fee. why not you paid them to fit a kitchen, and they aint hangin around they would come back and finish the job

And They Will Come When I Call Them

Did B&Q know you were employing someone to install it for you?

 

As they haven't delivered what was ordered, there is a breach of contract, but it may be that the joiner costs are too remote from that breach to recover them - if some missing screws, etc, or whatever it is, didn't prevent full installation, it may simply be too remote from the damage to be recoverable. If they didn't know you were getting someone to do it for you, they will use that as a reason to avoid culpability for those damages.

 

With the joiners, as well, did you agree to complete snagging once the work was done? Was there an expectation set surrounding paying for the installation to be completed, as a whole job or based on days work required.

 

With respect, we know you are angry, but lashing out at folk trying to help you here isn't going to get you anywhere. Asking for help, then attacking those that don't agree/see things your way is very silly. Of course, we don't know what you feel like, (you haven't told us) so you have to take the words written at face value.

Always happy to help where I can!

Well reading the story,its a pretty poor experience of service-lets be honest we are not talking of one mistake here but a multitude.

The OPs interpretation of a racist remark is perhaps only known to him/her,so maybe thats something that they believed to be the case-we dont know enough about the OP to be judgemental on that-so cannot dismiss it.

 

I am not an authority on the policies of B&Q but I would imagine that they are pretty much the same as any business of the size of them.

 

That is to say,that the first port of call for customers with complaints or disputes,should be with the store,and the managers there who are paid to do the job.

If after exhausting the procedure there,then you should follow up a complaint to their head office,giving as much info as possible,and asking them to respond.

 

If after their involvement you still remain unhappy,then you can start to look at taking other action-but my feelings are that you should get some answers and possibly resolution.
