    • 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

 

I know this is a silly question but here goes. Headboards come in 4 Foot and 4 Foot 6" sizes.

 

However, the width of my bed is in-between these sizes, its about 4 foot 4". What do I do?

 

Help! :)

Oh Maro, I have just worked out why this is a stupid question. Sticking out is fine I was worried that it wouldn't fit onto the attachments. However, I take it that a 4 and a 4 4" would both still fit the attachments.

 

Oops, I knew it was a stupid question :o

Actually it much more realistic than you think. We had a furniture shop which sold beds and headboard. Sometimes due to space limitations customers would have to get a "Custom" made bed adjusted either in the width or length to fit the space they needed. Now the bed was sorted we would than have to get them made a custom sized headboard. It occurs more often than you would think and you will probably find more smaller shops are able to source custom made for you instead of the big brand names who only sell what they have.

 

For all those who dont know a small single is 2'6", a standard single 3' a double 4'6" and a king 5', superking 5'6" (plus occassionally you have a queen 4'). All have the same length think 6'3" or 6'6".

 

Never assume that a bed is just standard as can you be caught out ALWAYS use a tape measure and dont forget about the space a skirting board takes up especially in a small box room, some wont take a normal length bed.

 

Good luck and never feel silly to ask as its only when you ask you can find the answer.

go back to the shop where you bought the bed from and tell them your problem, unless you have now sorted out, very good question anyway.

we had a similar situation a few years ago, went back to the shop, and they had sold us a bed, with a different headboard, wrong size, took it back, and had to re-order the correct one, and got about a week later.:lol:

True for the UK. Beware if you buy bedding from the USA. There a 5' bed is a queen and a 6' is a king. Some of mainland Europe is also starting to use these definitions.
