    • 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.

Hello,

 

Last autumn I was a season ticket user of FCC during the industrial action that deeply impacted their services. As a goodwill gesture to their season ticket holders, they had a promotion whereby users could either get a free month added to their subscription or receive a certain number of complimentary tickets on the network.

 

I opted for the complimentary tickets and was sent about 18 of them, all good for day returns on the FCC network (from King's Lynn to Brighton or Wimbledon and everywhere in between). Although they don't expire until 31 December 2011, I'm rather sure I won't use them all myself.

 

I don't want to contravene any laws or rules, but I would like to know if I can gift some of these tickets to family members or friends. Moreover, can I sell them on to some people at work who might be willing to buy one for, say £10 each? I won't do either of these things if it's illegal to do so, but I don't want the tickets to go to waste either.

 

I've attached a copy of a ticket and its reverse-side conditions to this post. I've had a look to see if anything is specifically prohibited, and nothing seems to be. They seem like a rather liberal gift! But I just wanted to be sure before I proceeded.

 

Thanks a lot!

Given to you and your freinds I guess, which would sujest to me that you can gift them to your friends, I just would'nt directly sell them to no one, however if who ever you gift them to wants to buy you a pint for asnother reason then that would be ok as far as I was concerned.

 

The above is my personnel opinion and should not been seen as offering legal advice..

Thanks to you both. I'll proceed accordingly.

 

I do wish they had just said on there: It is a prosecutable offence to re-sell these tickets. That would have made it abundantly clear for mooks like me!
