    • 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 recieved a parking ticket today whilst displaying a pay and display ticket.

 

I had drove along the road (Arley Hill, Cotham Bristol- new residents parking scheme set up nov 2012) looking for a space

and noticed a bay opposite the pay and display meter,

 

I parked, paid my money and merrily went on my way however

 

on returning to my car I noticed the dredded yellow ticket,

 

stating contravention 16 : parked in a permit space without displaying a valid permit.

 

I had mistakenly parked in the sole residents parking bays (between 9-5) instead of the dual use bays.

 

I hadnt seen the sign as it was a few metres up the road attached to the wall and the van infront had obscured my view.

 

By walking across the road to the pay and display meter I didnt have to walk past the sign.

 

Is this hard luck on my part or is their grounds for appeal?

 

any help would be much appreciated!!

 

Thanks in advance

So it's a bona-fide PCN, as it is titled "Penalty Charge Notice".

 

You can try appealing on the basis that it was a genuine error. Point out that you paid for a ticket and had no intention of trying to park for free, or of defrauding the system. Say it was a geniune mistake and please would they consider cancelling on this occasion, and next time you will make sure you check the bay markings thoroughly.

 

You have a chance.

Thanks for your swift replies, I was thinking of appealing on the basis it was a genuine mistake however wondered if there was some loop hole I could exploit as reading though the forum they seem as though they're tricky customers and will stick to their guns!

maybe their are some signage issues, but a sign that was blocked by a van wouldnt stick, maybe not enough or wrong type etc

 

i would appeal on the grounds that you genuinly made a mistake but you paid the correct parking fee, just parked in the wrong bay, maybe the council will be nice!

if you dont ask you dont get etc!! lol

The sign in question is actually attached to a wall which is approx 15 metres from where I had parked so looking down the road it's impossible to see however the sign opposite (pay and display and residents parking) is attached to a pole and was the only one clearly visible from where I had parked.

Hopefully they will see its a genuine mistake as I had atleast paid for what I thought was the correct bay (not holding my breath though!)
