    • Hospital car parks are no place to employ sharks, at least in Wales Hospital parking is free, and PPCs verboten.
    • Update:   A couple of weeks further along, and the charge has now been cancelled. In that regard alone the outcome is acceptable.   In the interim ...  There have been additional demands from CPP/PE in the most glorious and laughable obfuscated prose/legalese I have pressured PALS I have chased past correspondence I have contacted other Execs I have involved my MP who has now acted I had primed the local newspaper who was planning a piece this week   However ...   - PALS didn't respond until I complained in person after almost 2 silent weeks; then promised to help and a couple of days after that advised that the Hosp had said thye had no authority over the Parking Co. I told them the hosp had told them wrong, explained why and pressed them to go back ... since when I have heard nothing despite chasing them. - UHCW Trust Estates & Facilities Dir. is yet to respond, though contact was *only* a week ago. - UHCW CEO/Chief Administrator has never acknowledged/replied-to any of my letters/chases. - UHCW CEO/Chief Admin reacted immediately to MP letter however by passing it and my correspondence to Estates and Facilities Dir to deal with, who in turn replied to MP with cancellation, who yesterday copied that to me for confirmation received this morning.   Passing thoughts ...   - People who could/should have been dealing with it for the injured party elected not to. - PALS has good intentions but is useless if they don't have a leaflet on it - will follow the Hosp line on everything else without questioning their words. - The Trust's Administration is not approach-friendly, in this instance stating "... car parking managed by a Private Finance Initiative Service Provider"  and that therefore  ".. Trust has no power ...  in the processes applied by CPP .." Oh, really?!  - Trust accepted CPP's word that the equip't was not faulty as claimed, not the rather more reliable word of a visitor having been put to considerable inconvenience at 5 a.m.and who went to some length with staff to deal with it instead of buggering off home. - CPP "have agreed (to cancel) as a gesture of good will." WHAT?! THEIR good will? THEY are willing to let MY failings pass and kindly make allowances? Couldn't be more self-delusionarily wrong!   Sadly, I can guarantee that what is actually important in all of this will not get any attention   - providing an alternative payment method for patients/visitors for when the equipment malfunctions ... at any time not just the wee-hours ...  and tell staff ...  and put notices up. - UHCW taking any notice of their culpability in CPP's unlawful breaching of GDPR in accessing keeper details now that it has been brought to their attention. Head In Sand.       All of this comes of course from pulling-up the drawbridge and deny, deny, deny. It is the knee-jerk response of almost all large organisations, but one for which there should be no place in a Hospital Trust that should strongly want to distance itself from uncaring attitudes and irresponsible practises.   Anyway ...   Anyone finding this because of a similar issue of their own, my strongest advice is to heed the advice given to you on this forum - it put me straight on to the right path and got rid of some nervous uncertainties which makes all the difference to peace of mind, something that CPP relies on to add pressure for those who aren't aware of what's what.   My thanks again to all who kindly helped.            
    • At the investigation yes, they are seeing if they can build a case.   Like the police interview you before deciding if you are going to be charged. Not everyone is charged as some people have done nothing wrong!   If you tell people what the investigation is about before they go in, a proportion will use that knowledge to prepare really good lies. That's why companies don't do it.   I would have a read up on the ACAS site of guidelines for both investigations and disciplinaries.    https://www.acas.org.uk/index.aspx?articleid=1874
    • So they've back-tracked on their original statement that his insurance has been voided. If it's not been voided and was in force at the time of the accident there is no role for MIB. MIB gets involved if a driver was uninsured at the time of the accident, but 1st Central are now telling you he was insured. In the response you have had from MIB that is what they say, he was not uninsured. Whoever it was who told you that the policy had been voided was, by the sound of it, telling you something that simply wasn't true.   I've never heard of 1st Central but from their website it's clear they are an insurance broker not the actual insurance company https://www.1stcentralinsurance.com/who-we-are  As a broker they are acting for their client, the driver, and have no duty to be impartial in considering whose fault it was.   So looks like you have no option now other than to start a small claims court action against the driver.

I usually take my car to kwik fit regurarly although people have a stigma that they are "rip offs" but iv generaly found that you get what you pay for and the works always been good so dont see the issue of going back.

 

Up untill the other day I asked for a wheel allignment which was fine as the price stated £44.95. So the guy asked me to sit in the waiting room while he carried out the work and I could see the progress on the screen they provided. Everything was great, guys were helpful and polite untill it came to the price!

 

I was greeted with a price of £104 for the wheel allignment which was a joke, I was astonished. They never told me it would cost this much before it was done. I didmt anticipate how much it would cost so had only had £100 cash on me which I told the person serving me and he managed to brimg the price down to £99.95!

 

Now if a price stated clearly at £44.95 then whacked upto £104 and then brough dowm to £99.95 this tells me theres something not right somewhere.

 

I need my clutch replaced, waterpump and top mounts done next week but certainly wont be going to kwik fit unless rectified.

 

I personaly think no work should ever be done without being given a full price, maybe I was nieve in thinking a price in the wall would be what I pay. I felt embaressed not having the full ammount there

So what was the reason they gave for upping the price?

Because for every adjustment they make they charge £19.95, so basicaly its £45 to just look at the alignmemt?

 

Doesnt sound right to me....never ever had to pay £100 for an alignment in my life......iv owned 15 cars. I just moved area amd used my old kwik fit garage in my other area for years and they were always between £30 to £45 dependent on who served me. I just moved to this area 8 months ago and the first time iv used the kwik fit in this area and its suddenly increased by a HUGE ammount

Can you post an image of their advertisement for the service please.

 

Also, phone 2 or 3 KwicFits in other areas and find out what they charge.

I have had 4 wheel alignments done at various places. Generally around £60 and that includes the alignment.

 

If they advertised a 4 Wheel Alignment Check and made it clear the adjustments were extra before you proceeded then that might be fair.

 

However, if they advertised 4 Wheel Alignment what you are purchasing is the alignment. Not the check. Trading Standards would probably be interested in this.

Hanks for the replies. I will most definately be taking a trip into the shop tomorrow to take a photo of thier advertisement. I have phoned 3 seperate kwik fit garages and all have given me a price range between 30 and 45 thats including each change I had to have done.

 

Basicaly when I arrived I seent he advrrtisement of £45 for the wheel alkignment and asked for it to be done with the views that it would be £45. The person then saif to me to wait in the waiting room where you can watch on screen how bad the toe, caster and camber are, he had done the front two and was taking a while so I oopped over to soeak to him etc then popped back into watch the rear being dne and after that well.....iv explained the rest in regards to how much I was charged etc.

 

I just dont understand how prices can vary between each kwik fit unless its some kind of franchise? You dont goto tesco and see the same thing for a different price......

I have just had my alloy wheels refurbished 3 weeks ago and redone in gloss black, I got my hunter wheel allignment done by kwik fit last week which I have already complained about in an earlier post as the price stated was £45 however they charged me £104!

 

I cleaned my alloys yesterday and noticed the exact same distinct mark on all 4 of my alloys and didnt know what it was.......I then had my car back in today to have the allignment recheckedas I wasnt happy with it.

 

Watching them this time I noticed they hooked something onto all 4 alloys and thats when I thought maybe whatever they are placing on the wheels is what made the first marks.......

 

As soon as the allignment was done I checked the wheels again and voila the exact same 4 marks where on the wheels again in different placed but again all symmetrically spread over the wheel the same as before!

 

The devide they attach onto the wheels has 4 arm type things that hook and grip onto the alloy!

 

Im not confrontational and was scared to say anything so I have wrote on here........

 

What should I do?

You seem to have had a good whinge about (probably) being overcharged £104 for alignment. Despite the sound advice you were given, you don't seem to have followed up on it. You certainly didn't post a picture of the advertisement as promised in post #6.

 

Have you got your £104 back?

 

If not I have no sympathy for your for taking it back to the same place for more abuse. Sorry.

Sorry I apologised for not updating beforehand. I did get in contact with a "Mr Wheeler" and did have money reimbursed in regards to the price for the wheel allignment.

 

This is now a new issue and didnt find it necessary to start a new topic.

 

Thankyou gor the reply
