    • I am getting conflicting advice from friends about this issue. I am hoping somebody can end my confusion. A couple of weeks ago I took my Mum out for her birthday. Another driver scratched the front passenger side near the bumper of my car as it was parked up. There are no dents just quite severe paint work damage. He scraped his car against mine. The other driver drove off. Luckily there was 2 witnesses who got the other drivers reg number. Cut a log story short the other driver said he didn’t realise he damaged the paintwork on my car. He has however admitted liability. His insurance is paying out. Last Thursday my car was taken away to have the paintwork done. Today I been told my car has been put down as a total loss (not a write off).  As it is only paintwork damage and not body work or mechanical damage, I don't understand why it has been put down as a total loss. I have been told by the insurers I can either write the car off and receive payment to the value of the car or I can take a lower payment and get the car repaired myself.   I am getting conflicting advice from friends. Some are saying if I keep my car and get the repairs done myself the car will then be classed as a category S or category M and I will no longer be able get insurance on the car as it will be classed as written off. As it is only paintwork damage and not body work or mechanical damage, I don't understand that. My questions are  If I take the payment to get the paintwork repair done myself will I still be able to insure my car when the insurance is up for renewal? If I take the payment to get the paintwork repair done myself will my current insurance policy be voided? If my car does get classed as category M or S will the stop me from selling it on the future? Thanks
    • Yes, it is just for Tesco. But as that manager explained, those two spaces on that ground are now rented by the electric company. "What appeal?  Private parking companies never, ever, ever accept appeals - ever." What is my next move then, please? Just wait for them to issue me with whatever it is they issue, and then what? 
    • so how are you doing OP?  Letter of claim ready?

    • 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.

Right other thread which went on for ages is resolved, just this niggle with tesco broadband has totally gutted me and even my bank tell me I am not being over the top and my phone provider seems to be making me do all the leg work.:sad:



Phone and broadband back up and running finally as said, sky apoligised for their mistake, so all sorted you think. NOPE but not a problem from sky but tesco again. What turned out to be little mistake last month and sorted has carried over and they want me due to lack of facility to alter mistakes carry it over to next month again.


Last month a certain amount of credit was owed to my account, this in error was not credited or it seemed to me the woman didnt know how to do it, or wether possible but also telling me the dd would go ahead and take more money.


I was asked and I agreed that they couldnt sort it there and then and hey I was back on the phone so no big deal. They told me the amount would get credited to my account this bill and low and behold it hasnt been. I was politely told they realise they have again made a mistake and unfortunately I will have money took again this month and the credits will appear next month, still with me?:madgrin:


I said due to me being so patient over last months I feel they can do more than that, they should reissue the bill and sort it their end and only take what appropriate. BT can reissue a bill if faulty and prevent taking too much, after all they control the ammount from the dd and its not as if its going out next couple of days its I believe over a week away and my bank said not as if raised yet.


So I said no. Was told they will take it anyhow as direct debit cannot be altered, bank differ in that opinion and tell me it is not my place to have to keep stopping dd's and reinstating them to protect my monies. but I did it anyhow. It is up to company to make sure they sort it and dont inconvinienc me, or am I over the top there?


Anyhow tesco know its thier fault and they did get manager to ring me back who said that the woman who inputs credits from a spreadsheet which I was on for credit, decided as I had another problem on account not my fault from earlier and adjustment made, that she would hault it as possible error. Fair enough I think but looking at my account if she bothered to check she would see all that had gone on since starting with them and have the forethought you would think to query it? hhmm:madgrin:


Nope without checking into it, they cancelled the credit and left me to do the leg work again and ring them up once more. Thing is they are reassuring me it wont happen again, same as last month and asking me to pay money I dont owe this month and get credit next month.


What if they make the same mistake next month? My lucks not been great lately:lol:


To be honest I dont need the stress, so have to do some thinking. They are willing to let me leave with no termination fees and I am seriously thinking of paying more and returning to bt.


Why when firms make a mistake do I need to have my bloodpressure monitored? :mad2:


I can let them do it again and hope and pray they dont charge me again in error next month or leave. What would you do, if I were you?:madgrin::madgrin::madgrin:

Thing is last time they told me to prevent monies going out by stopping direct debit and time takes to alter bill, it was either on the day or day later dd due to go out and I get a curt call.


Why has the dd failed? Along with a letter telling me there was not enough money in my account as the reason. I had money and was not amused. Seemed they were unable to update systems as promised.


Am I the only one or they must really hate me :) I know gremilins exist like in the film :lol:

I decided to do as they asked and cancel the dd and reinstate it next month:|


I send an email asking for them to make sure and look into getting my bill correct next month and in the meantime I can at my leisure decide if I want to go or stay when in a calmer state. xx


This morning I get an email. ooooh a reply I think as I know billing were involved in it yesterday.



Nope just an email warning me it is part of the service to have a valid up and running direct debit and they rather PROMPTLY have noticed mine has cancelled:lol: Laughing now, but peed off as have to again email them to make sure service is not turned off.


One arm does not know what other is doing it seems, you could argue mistakes happen with depts liasing with one another, but this is within billing and doing my head in:jaw:


So for tesco when up and running broadband and phone is great, but wow betide you if have to liase with billing or sort out billing erros as they use third party billing. I mean if you can afford to just pay this month, not get so het up and think okay they will get it correct next month. No big deal, but this month it is a big deal. I have just had to get another convection microwave as last one went caput and I timed it well to get it this month so as on benefits have to be careful when addding direct debits up. 25.02 is a lot when its not in your account :-)
