    • 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.

Hi all,

Complete newbie here, been having a read around, great site with lots of useful info!

I’m hoping someone can help/give me some advice on the following.

I had a Vodafone contract for about 5 or 6 years up until last year when I moved to O2 because voda weren’t offering the handset that I wanted and thought I’d go for a change.

I had never had any problems with them at all; I always paid my bills on time as I do with all of them.

I even regretted going to O2 and wanted to move back to Vodafone because I thought that the Vodafone customer service was better (!).

Anyway, a number of months ago I was trying to get credit and was being refused. I contacted Experian and got a copy of my credit file online, only to find that the reason I was being refused, was due to a £25 default (at an old address) still outstanding on my credit file.

I phoned Vodafone and after a quick conversation with a guy named James, he came back and advised that the reason this had gone into default was their fault, not mine, that they would pay the £25 themselves as a sorry, and that they would sort it all out for me.

James told me that he would tell the QA department to have the default removed from my file and I should see this within 7 – 10 days.

I waited for much longer than 10 days, keeping an eye on my file, but the default still remained outstanding.

I phoned Vodafone again and told them the story, I was told that the debt had been cleared on their system and the debt collectors etc and was all cleared by them, but they did not know why the default was still there. Again, another fax/message was sent internally to QA asking to remove the default.

A month went by (I went on holiday) and still the same thing, I phoned again, was told the same thing again, QA advised to remove default and that I had nothing outstanding with Vodafone.

This time, my credit file got updated, but the default was simply marked as satisfied but was still on there.

I have phoned again and the woman I spoke to this time even read the fax she was sending to QA out over the phone to me clearly saying the default should be removed not satisfied as it was a Vodafone error.

Another month has gone by and the default remains on my credit file. Each time I ask to speak to QA directly, I get told they can’t be contacted by phone.

Needless to say, I haven’t moved my contract back to Vodafone, which I wanted to before all this started.

I am at the end of my Tether, not only is this ruining my credit file and my finances, I also work in the financial industry and if this remains for much longer I will be at risk of losing my job.

Can anyone please help me?

Thanks.

Just thought it was worth adding, the default was added by voda, no third parties or anything, my contract was always direct with vodafone and they've the ones that marked my credit file.

I moved house after I changed my contract from vodafone, hence why the default was under an old address.

Hi,

WTF are Vodafone playing at. Something as simple as this should have been sorted ages ago.

 

There is a meber of the forum who works for Vodafone and he has been helpful to other posters.

 

I post this link with apologies to Lee. He is on holiday at the mo but his workload is astonishing. One of the team should pick this up though.

Hey silverfox, thanks for mega fast reply! :)

 

I know, thats what I was thinking, I can't understand why they haven't just done it, but just felt like a losing battle.

 

When the customer service people are telling you they're getting it sorted and to wait a couple of weeks and then nothing happens over and over again its like banging your head against a wall.

 

So you think it would be best to follow the instructions in that thread, email them with the code etc?

 

Really,thanks for such a fast reply!

Hi SnowmanAndy

 

From what you describe this is definitely something I want to investigate for you further.

 

I can see that your last experiences with us haven't been positive ones. Although I can't change that I'd really like to resolve this matter for you so that you can move on and no longer be concerned that this will have negative repercussions for you.

 

I've tracked down your email and will be investigating this for you later today. I'll keep in touch with any updates via email as they arise.

 

Speak to you soon

Guys,

 

Just wanted to say that Kirsty sorted this default out for me pretty quickly. I can confirm after reviewing my credit score and file that the Default has now been removed and everything is back to the way it should be.

 

Big thanks to Kirsty and the VF Web Relations team!

Hi Andy,

 

Thanks for updating the thread with confirmation that this has been resolved for you - we really do appreciate it.

It does seem to filling up rather quickly of late and I am awaiting a few more updates from others I know are resolved too.

 

Good that's been resolved. I'm in a similar boat but not heard anything back. How long did your case take to get sorted? Lee is dealing with mine..I also wrote in but no joy as of yet.

 

Hi Nathan,

 

I can appreciate your keenness to get this resolved as soon as possible.

 

Whilst I can't provide a timescale as to when I'll be able to come back to you I can promise you that as soon as I've got an update I'll let you know.

 

Many thanks,

Hi Lee,

 

Yeah, I'm keen to get it fixed cos I need to do balance transfers on cards and can't get one. As it stands this default is gonna be costing me around £60 a month in interest, which sucks.

 

After all the phone calls to Vodafone and the letter I wrote in, I don't understand how it can take so long for something like this to get resolved. I know its not your fault and in no way blame you. I fully appreciate the work you do here for myself and others. But, this is having quite an impact on my life through no fault of my own. Vodafone should be quicker at addressing issues such as this. When a customer owes them money..they want it yesterday lol.

 

I look forward to getting your update in the near future.
