    • Yup sounds it !  I did mention to the salesman I hold no issue with him because I think he did his part  Servicing would have prepped the car, ticked the boxes and handed it over to say now go sell this.  He could be the worlds biggest car fanatic or the best salesman with no knowledge about cars so I can't expect him to have known or to even checked after the MPC.   I will ask if its just easier sending a tyre fitter or getting it done locally - at just over £400, its silly to send two people down, do 100+ miles in the Q3 + 100+ to get here and back + workshop time + ultimately new tyres (I assume)  
    • Thanks. It looks as if they are behaving very responsibly so far. Keep a close eye on it though and keep good notes of everything that happens.
    • Salesman just called essentially saying they will be speaking to the various managers tomorrow to put together a plan of action - more to the point, its looking like they would come to me, pick the car up and take it back to PA to resolve the issues if I am not comfortable driving it up myself.   Lets see what they come back with tomorrow and go from there- He did ask if I had a car and I said yes - in hindsight I am now thinking its because we could be without the Q3 for a few days so this might also need to be raised as the "owner " is a heavily pregnant person hence the upgrade and don't want her to be carless if I am out at work and she needs to go for a scan/app ...   Will update tomorrow

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Wonder if anyone can provide advice on this issue with paypal. Bought some goods of a web site, good were wrong contacted the compamy and was told to send back which I did. Got an -mail message from paypal stating that a refund was made by the said company and pending 2/1/13. Up to now no refund has been refunded. The goos were paid via my Nat West Debit card. The refund was made by the provider on the 22/12/12 and now it is the 4th Jan. What can I do about this any input would be greatly appreciated.

 

Regards,

hi, normally takes three to five days for paypal to credit your paypal account with the refund, then you can transfer the funds to your bank account.

waht does it say on your paypal account with regards this, does just say pending?

you may have to contact paypal and ask them why after this length of time. They are good at hanging onto other peoples money.

you can contact them by email, from their site.

The paypal refund is coming from 1 of 3 sources, money held by paypal, a charge card or a bank account.

 

If the refund comes from a bank account it can take up to 2 weeks to clear.

 

This is because the request for the payment has to go through 2 banks and paypal and then back again.

 

It is a bit like writing a cheque which is then cashed,

the refund requested made by cheque and then banked and cashed.

 

they all take a bit of time and it adds up to a long time.

 

your original payment may have not cleared when the refund was made so that would add a week to start with.
