    • 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.

In December 2012 my Mum entered a competition on a local radio station. She won a voucher worth £20.00 for a local restaurant and two bottles of wine. Thinking this was a lovely present idea, she then purchased 2 gift vouchers as Christmas presents in 2012 for £20.00 each along with 4 bottles of wine to package 2 in with each voucher. She gave these as christmas presents to myself and my siblings to use with our partners. As you can see in the picture there is no 'Voucher Expiry' date etc.

 

When my brother called to use his in FEBRUARY he was told the restaurant would no longer honour the vouchers due to a manager running off with money(although no change to the actual owners).

 

The restaurant will not honour these now, where do we stand? She paid on her credit card so may be covered by Section 75 however I do not want the restaurant to get away with this!

 

Letter (voucher) image attached.

 

I have also posted this issue on their Facebook site tonight! Family members have suggested ordering our food and then producing the vouchers with payment, if they call the police we have evidence of our vouchers and they will be embarrassed by a scene. :evil:

 

Advice appreciated!

 

sorry image is too small, there is no expiry date and no condition of pre-booking.

Can you post the image in PDF format or hose on an external site please. Did the voucher say anything along the lines of "this voucher/offer can be withdrawn at any time", or " we reserve the right to amend the terms and conditions of this voucher without notice".

Very VERY bad idea. You could be arrested for theft. Thats why you need to check the vouchers closely.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Sorry but I disagree. You shouldn't be arrested fro theft because it would be clear that you had no dishonest intention.

However, the police can be a bit think and make mistakes and anyway there are less confrontational ways to go about it.

 

My favourite is to write a letter, give 14 days and then bring a small claim in the county court.

This is very effective

I cannot do it now as not working but says "it gives me pleasure to forward this gift voucher to the value of £20.00 which entitles you to take lunch evening meal or perhaps afternoon tea at a time convenient to yourselves. It can be used in conjunction with any of our speciality evenings.....or with our evening a la carte menu, the choice is entirely up to you.

 

We look forward to welcoming you and should you wish to arrange a time in advance please call.... And we will endeavour to seat you in full view of the stunning bay.....

 

Please present this letter when you arrive and we look forward to welcoming you soon.

 

Yours truly

 

....

Manager

 

 

 

 

No other text at all other than standard letterhead and removed list of deals they offer for ease of reading. Thanks :)

Ok sounds good, although my brother has already had a verbal battle with them. Apparently old manager ran off with money however they are still trading successfully!!

You shouldnt be arrested, but there have been various news articles that report that people did get arrested, even when they had vouchers or gift tokens. Thats why i mentioned it. The vouchers are usually at the sole discretion of the restaurant or business. Thats why i said the terms and conditions need to be checked carefully to see if there are any clauses allowing them to withdraw the offer.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Thanks everyone, I see it as two seperate issues - the radio needs to deal with the prize and I/my mum will deal with the paid vouchers. Can anyone advise on what we can claim to add more of a stong in the tail? The vouchers total £40.00, we have consumed the 4 bottles of wine purchased (hic) but can we claim for more i.e. interest/compensation for the time wasted and hassle? Thanks

The manager running off with the cash has nothing to do with you. If you turned up andhad a meal would you expect to pay twice the advertised price because the restaurant owner had lost a few quid at roulette?

They dont seem to know their obligations under contract law so you should write to them and remind them that you have entered a contract and paid for a service or consideration and you expct to receive it.
