    • Get a 2nd opinion ASAP. Dealerships are notorious for saying that cars need brakes/tyres when they don't. Take it to someone completely independent and get their opinion.
    • nothing to do with any warranty. consumer rights act or contract law claim. dx
    • Thank you for the response; I'm very grateful for the help and i'm open to all feedback. I'm afraid I don't understand what is meant by properly declared and valued? On the Evri app, when completing the process of sending a parcel, I did declare that I was sending a 'watch' and gave the full value of the watch (£429.99). I'm not an online seller if that helps. The parcel contained my own personal watch; a Garmin which cost £474.99 (inclusive of 'protect plus insurance' from John Lewis of £45). The £45 Protect Plus insurance from John Lewis covers the Garmin watch, and as they have lost it, it is no longer valid. So i'm adding that to the total claim.  It was a birthday gift bought for me this Jan/Feb by my partner.    Re: understanding of Parcel delivery insurance; "Part 1 Chapter 4 of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 means I have a legal right to expect that any service I’ve paid for should be carried out with reasonable care and skill". So I understood from this that I have rights under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 that protect me, regardless of not choosing to purchase their insurance protection.        
    • HI all, I work for a company who offers a review service for large companies, whereby customers can review products and/or services and the reviews appear on the companies own site My job, along with roughly 10 others, is to moderate those reviews. We're all on a zero hours contract, we do work as and when it's available. The way the system works is for every 120 reviews we moderate, we get paid the equivalent of the basic minimum wage, so £11.44 per 120 reviews. If this were a steady supply of reviews, it could be a decent income, but it's not, so you end up spending a lot of time doing nothing and not being paid for it, such is life For the last 3 months or so they've had an issue whereby a lot of reviews were duplicated up to 15 times and we were told to moderate those as we would normal reviews, You can imagine how many reviews we've been having to moderate, my moderated review count was probably around 4x the number I normally do, almost throughout the entirety of June this was going on for. being quite excited about the prospect of a boost in income, to me and other mods surprise and shock, we're not being paid for all those extra hours and work done, for the past 3 months when the issue started.. We're only being paid for the non duplicate reviews, plus 5% on top. In my case, instead of receiving around £1500ish for the month of June, I'm only receiving around £500 I mean, I get it, marking each of these duplicates was very quick/easy, as it was a repeat decision from the previous 14, but to let us do all that work and not pay us for it?
    • That's good news, well done. From  memory, self-employed people didn't pay into SERPS, it was for employees. And I believe SERPS stopped in 2002, being replaced by S2P. HB

    • 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

i have a static caravan on a lovely site and surroundings ,been there a couple of years,we settled in and we said this is the place for us for the next 15 years fantastic,:)also i thought:(the next door neighbour who nobody warned us about is making our life a misery,he his nothing but a vindictive bully who we have since found out he has driven up to four caravan owners away by his aggression towards them,the company have had letters of complaints about him and he is on his final warning,

but he still keeps on harassing us,we now feel stressed out and all the fun has been taken out of our lives because he is still on the site we have no alternative but to sell up,but all we would get for our caravan is boot price the caravan is 2003 new model very good condition we would lose about 15,000 pounds, surely there must be some law and compensation when you are bullied of a site,after all we were not told about this mans attitude.it has been suggested to me he is of great value to the company because they are leaving for a pittance,then there van is sold on for a very high price,bit like in the old westerns when they forced ranch owners off there land they used to hire gunslingers to scare them off,

i would like to know if anyone has suffered a similar experience,? what do i do?!

 

thanks

Agree wholeheartedly with PGH

 

 

If you don't stand up to this obnoxious lout you'll just be contributing to the misery he'll put the next owner of your site to.

could you move your caravan to another site, then you would not lose the value of your caravan, just resite it, get rid of all the hassle, and get peace of mind and a nice time, which is what you have bought the caravan for in the first place.8)

Not always that easy to do and that would be another notch on his tow-bar for the bully.

 

Bullying is bullying whether in the street,the playground or on your caravan site.

 

Is there a legal solution that might be applied here?

Anti-social behaviour order. Report all incidences to the police and/or local authority.

My advice is based on my opinion, my experience and my education. I do not profess to be an expert in any given field. If requested, I will provide a link where possible to relevant legislation or guidance, so that advice provided can be confirmed and I do encourage others to follow those links for their own peace of mind. Sometimes my advice is not what people necesserily want to hear, but I will advise on facts as I know them - although it may not be what a person wants to hear it helps to know where you stand. Advice on the internet should never be a substitute for advice from your own legal professional with full knowledge of your individual case.

 

 

Please do not seek, offer or produce advice on a consumer issue via private message; it is against

forum rules to advise via private message, therefore pm's requesting private advice will not receive a response.
