    • 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 all, I'm home recovering but may not work again, selling my house and trying to end the blemain hell that I have endured for nearly 10 years now. Thx for all the get well messages.

 

Sometimes I guess you have to consider what's important in life, and your health is what really matters. I know this isn't a decision you and your family will have taken lightly, but I can't help hoping that you get something out of Blemain too. Take care my friend.xx

I f you choose to sell its your choice I totally understand why, but I dont want you to see after that JUSTICE CAME IN , cos that would be a shame Im believing justice before you sell) today I saw a homeless man with his dog , the man was drinking i asked wheres your dog lead gone he said someone took it . I went poundland got collar and lead and went put it on the dog cos the dog was running all over the place, normally the dog sits with man quiet, just takes simple act of kindness to make a difference.

Hello all, I am recovering and getting better and just wanted to post up that due to my health problems and being unable to work I sold my house and settled my blemain account in full. I hope everyone who continues to fight this lot get a happy ending but for me it had to end early.

I settled paying just under £12000 which was purely charges and interest and it is good to no longer have the harassment from them.

I may one day return to this but hope you understand my reasons for settling.

 

Xx

Some things are more important than bricks and mortar or allowing the likes of Blemain to take over your life. Health, happiness and quality of life for you and your family is far more important. It takes courage to know when it's time to walk away, I've seen many times how much happier people have been when they've taken hard decisions and moved on with their lives.

 

I wish you and yours the very best for the future. xx
