    • 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 Guys.

I am in need of your help once again.

I was in London on the weekend and parked on a Unnamed road in Harrow.

This is the road:

 

//g.co/maps/faext

(please add the begining of the url your self)

 

I was parked directly opposite the bins. Which had a single Yellow line, with a dash (blip) on the pavement.

 

I received a parking ticket stating:

"Parked or Loading / Unloading in a restricted street were waiting and loading / unloading restrictions are in place"

at 21:15 in the evening.

 

Having looked at google maps (see image below, i added the red line for the approximate location), the road isnt marked on the maps, also it is unamed. I suspect it is a private road.

1. is this the case?

2. If it is a private road can council enforcement officers give me a ticket there?

if you are going to post links/pics use:

 

scan the required letters/agreements/sheets

as a picture[jpg] file

remove all pers info inc barcodes etc using paint program

but leave all figures and dates.

 

goto one of the many free online pdf converter websites

it would be better to upload a multipage pdf

than many single ones

or if you have PDF as an installed printer drive use that

or use word and save as pdf

open a new msg box here

hit go advanced below the msg box

The fact that the on-street yellow lines continue around the corners of the junction suggests to me that they were painted in one operation, and deliberately so - which in turn suggests that this is part of the highway and legit - the end part in any case, where pedestrians have obvious right of access.

 

However I think you'd be better off enquiring with the council - not the Parking people but the people who deal with highways. You need to find out if this is public highway (not whether it is privately owned, which is different!!), and if where you were parked is within the highway boundary. If it is, then the yellow lines are enforceable. If it isn't, they probably are not.

 

Out of interest, if this street has no name, what is the location stated on the PCN?

I presume this then includes the place where I parked? So its legitimate?

Was there a plate to support the SYL?

 

Do you mean the yellow notice? To be honest i cant remember, my partner said she looked and thought it was fine. Although on google maps you can see one at the other side of the road.

 

Unfortunately i am not from London, so getting down there would be costly in fuel lol.

I've just had a look on street view and there does appear to plates although I cannot see what they say. Street View dosn't actually cover the road in question. It looks to me as if it's a typical service road to serve the rear of some shops.
