    • 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.

Yes its not unexpected.

Credit lines from banks are only part of the problem.

There are a number of factors why high streets are suffering.

Many were tied into long leases and face crippling rates.

There was the promotion of out of town retail parks and centres which have took lots of trade from the high street.

Coupled with the economic slowdown,internet sales growth etc then its not hard to see whats happened.

I saw Dixons have recently secured new bank funding for around £400m.

The bulk of that is to secure servicing debts of more than 300m

Many of these big names could not survive without these massive capital injections-yet what sets them aside to a corner shop with a £3k overdraft ?

I have a shop myself but specialise.I think that in a recession there are opportunities for small businesses and individuals,but the golden rules for new starters is to keep costs down,and to go into something you know about,and know your competition.You have to also be prepared to forget working 9-5

The internet has its limitations,especially for personal service.

You might get a cable on ebay for £1 less than I am selling,but you have to pay postage and wait 2 days for it.

I have actually bought things from the £1 shops and sold them in mine for £2....it costs a quid to get to the centre and then theres the queuing....so they are not complaining.

The recession also instills old values into people....why is there a need to buy a new plasma tv every 12 months when the old one still works ?

The big ticket items are the ones that will be seeing the likes of Dixons and PC world struggle with selling.

Of course a recession is a dream for buyers of second hand goods as people sell things for a fraction of what they are really worth...but anything is only worth as much as a buyer is prepared to pay.

A recession actually puts the consumer in the driving seat and it is them who call the shots.

My town is saturated by takeaways hairdressers coffee shops and restaurants of every national cuisine.

We used to have a pub on every corner,but now they can be counted on 2 hands.

It is a shame that the boom and bust years of the 80s and 90s have not only taken victims from that era...but have also taken things like pubs which have been part of our heritage and culture since the 1950s and beyond.

Lots of poignant stuff in there Martin. I had to laugh about the TV. Mine has been on the blink for about 2 years; people are varying shades of green or red depending on its mood at the time. But as I watch it relatively little and can't justify the cost of a new one it's become something of a family joke. luckily my kids are very understanding too!

Ha Ha I know what you mean.

I bought a large LG CRT TV from Cash Generators second hand about 4 years ago.

It was £250 and I thought it was a bargain.

Its very big and bulky but from the front looks like any Plasma.

After 3 years it developed a fault and I could not get round to fixing it as too busy fixing things for others.A few weeks ago I saw one on ebay in perfect working order and it started at £30.

I had planned to bid but missed the finish....guess what ?

It went unsold as no bidders !!

 

The TV is still here and I goy a 22" Sony triniton from the British heart foundation shop to get me by which cost £15 !!

 

If you go into these shops they cant give older TVs away,and there are rows of portables here going for £7.50.

You would pay more than that for a replacement remote control..........
