    • 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.

I work for a large dairy company as a Line manager, My shift work a 4 off 4 on shift pattern, As a management grade employee I recieve 23 days holiday, My operators do not recieve holidays as they work a annualised hours contract and their holiday pay is factored in to their salary! If our shift falls on Christmas day (Or a bank holiday) until now I have been given the day off and the annualised hours guys would be rerostered to pay the time back, My boss has now told me I too have to pay the time back? I feel this is wrong as for 4 years I have never had to, does that not make it common place? Also Line managers across all the other departments are not being forced to work the same re-rosters back? How can my equals not have to do something and me have to? is that not discrimination? I don't think i'd be bothered in the slightest about working the day back if everyone else was!


Thanks in advance for any advice :)

It's not a case of holidays, Basically at christmas the site is shut down on christmas day and new years day, My shift falls on christmas day this year but my employer does not want me to come in, The annualised hours guys get re-rostered because they start the year with a bank of 77 hours that they owe the company because they are paid for them in advance, Me being a manager I do not have bank hours, therfor we don't pay the time back because we are told not to work by our employer, until now that is

for a start custom and practice would come into this and would be enforced by an implied term in your contract of employment


the employer would need to do a consultation period on this


has this been done


has the change allready been implemented without due consultation and have you considered rasing a grievance if you hit a brick wall
