    • I will admit one thing but please please please, its not time to start blaming me, but it was covid peak I had my sister unwell, and initially did try mediation. That was part of it. the other reason was that the private parking appeals company who had written my defence and had a latter of authority just vanished and were uncontactable. so when I received the DQ, I was panicking and worried about covid and sister that I decided without admission of any guilt or that i owe them anything to go for mediation. However, that was unsuccessful.     Please Please its not time to start blaming me because I am a lay person and not familiar. However, I do ant to get this in time.   Finally, I will visit the site tomorrow and see if I can get any photographic evidence of the signages.   I have got a copy of the leasehold of the land from the registry.   I have also emailed Dudley council to see when the PPC applied for permission for  putting up the signs as well as permission for the ANRP. I sent it today so wont be ready for 18th January.    Not sure if we can get a bit extra time though because none of the two documents that I will be uploading  have reached me by post. they have been emailed to me by their legal team    Thankyou for all your comments.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hi all,

 

Purchased a car from Carshaft on the 21st Nov this year and looking at my online bank statement I seen a payment thats gone out to Premium First.

 

On further checking with my bank its associated to Creation Consumer Finance Ltd and Carshaft sorry Carcraft.

 

At the point of sale at Carshaft the sales guy stated that due to my finacial history they could not get the full cost of the car so a 2nd agreement has been taken out to cover the shortfall, this we accepted and signed for and at the point of sales the sales guy said to me and the misses that all warrenties are free etc etc.

 

Now we find out that Carshaft have made us sign an agreement making out its a top up loan but thats not the case, we have not received any paperwork or any agreements at all for this crafty, con way of doing business.

 

I've called the complaints dept at Carshaft and they said they cannot and will not do anything about it because its gone over the 14 days cancellation period and they have signed agreements stating we accepted them. Carshaft at Newport also say they cannot and will not do anything about it and Im pi$$ off and tempted to go to Newport with a baseball bat just for the fun of it.

 

How can they be allowed to get away with faulsly selling a unsecured load makeing out its a top up and in fact its for a warrenty we did not want or agree to at the point of sale but we signed because we thought it was just a top up load for the full price of the car and the sale guy said that.

 

Im fuming and ready to baseball bat that sales guys knee's I can tell you.

 

 

Anyone willing to help.

 

 

PS,

They never gave us any signed agreement at the point of sale and the only agreements we have are 2 copies of the same one for the car itself.

 

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh :mad2:

Further update.

 

Been in contact with trading standards and explained all, they say Carshaft are in breach under S56 of the credit act and they and Premium First are joint responsible.

 

I've again contacted Premium First and stated the facts and they say that they dont have any agreements and the sale was carried out as a Telesales account, therefore done over the phone by Carshaft.

 

They have stated for me to put my complaint in writing to there complains dept (which I will) and they will get in contact with Carshaft and get the agreement cancelled and payment refunded.

 

Now watch this space.

 

PS,

Did call Carshaft at Newport and said I'll be down and over their counter if its not sorted, not a happy bunny.

First thing I would do is cancel the DD through my bank and request (read as demand) that they refund the value paid against that DD back into my account immediatey. Remenber, the terms of the DD guarantee state that "if a mistake is made the funds will be reunded to you BY YOUR BANK" It is then up to your bank to get the funds back from the 3rd party.

But thats not quite right is it.

 

If I cancel the direct debit the finance company will come after me for the monies owed as they will say they have a signed contract and DD details so they are entitled to call for it. I will pay the DD so as not to cause other problems and get the agreement cancelled and then get all monies paid refunded.

 

Also, the bank will also say they have a signed direct debit giving them authorisation for them to pay therefore its not a reason for them to refund as I know where the money is going.

If it isn't for what you were told it was, then they are in breach of the DD guarantee.

You don't need your bank to "agree" to cancel the ongoing DD, you can do that online yourself or over the phone to your bank. They have no grounds or right to refuse your request, you only need them to agree to recall the money already paid.

 

I would still do it if I believed I have been misinformed of what charges are for and put the pressure on them to prove their charges are valid and correct. The first thing that happens when you cancel a DD to a company is they will write to you telling you your bank has refused their DD request and asking you to set up a new DD. At that point you can ask for "clarification" of what the payment is for.

I now what the payment is for, its for a unsecured loan for a warrenty that I was missold by a Carshaft saleman whom told me it was a top up loan and the warrenty they provided was free.

 

As far as the finance company is concerned they just paid Carshaft the money for a warrenty.

 

My argument is trying to get the warrenty cancelled because it was missold as I didnt want it or need it and the sales guy knew that right from the off but made out that it was a top up loan.

 

Crafty Carshaft and its under handed tactics.

Update.

 

Been contacted by Linzi whom works for Carcraft customer services on 01706 753*** after she spoted my post ON ANOTHER FORUM and within minutes of me contacting her she called me back and stated that a letter has been sent via special delivery stating the warranty has been cancelled and also a suprise was in the letter as well.

 

Will post back with the outline of the letter and what the suprise is....................... naa I wount.

 

Why, because I didnt get one cent of help from this forum and had to resort to posting on another site which provide a resolution within days.

Hi

 

A post seems to have been taken off - i got an email stating this was on there:

 

Hi Linzi

Thanks for helping out via this forum. I actually don't wish to slag off the selling techniques of CarCraft on the Premium First warranty - but could really do with some help regarding the aforesaid warranty.

If you can PM me that would be great. I tried to PM you but CAG wouldn't let me. That sucks :)

Thanks

Chris

 

As you couldn't PM me, please give me a call on [edit] and i'll be happy to discuss anything with you Chris.

 

Thanks

Linzi
