    • Indeed.  It's them that will have to take you to court if they ever want to see any money.  They know full well how difficult it is for the private parking companies to win residential cases,. 
    • The MO of these companies is not exactly sophisticated. Send the invoice. After X days send a reminder saying the amount is now £100. After X days send a final demand. After X days get a DCA to send a letter pretending the amount is now £170. After X days get a DCA to send another letter with another threat. After X days get a third-rate solicitor to send a letter with yet another threat. After X days send a Letter of Claim. Or some variant of the above. Ridicule them now if you want but they will just continue with their bi-monthly (or similar) letters. It only really makes sense to contact them after a Letter of Claim, which is the stage before court, to let them know that if they proceed you will be big trouble for them and will make a big hole in their wallet.
    • i know,  fantastic eh - Cost of repairs that did not need doing (why would you repair something that isnt broken) Also some new lies there.. two deliveries - they imply they fixed it and sent the car back - they didnt, they took it back and its up for sale!  Also have all evidence of emails, confirmation of calls via email, confirmation of calls resulting in them being abusive (so resulting to email)

    • 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 have been claiming IB since 97. It was then transferred over to ESA.


Since last year I have been harrassed by the Advisor that I am under to either Undertake Training, or get a job.

My illnesses are: COPD, Raynauds, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Carpel Tunnel Syndrome and I am also awaiting to see a Hip Surgeon about a hip replacement.


I have always attended the Interviews with the advisor except for one and I phoned because I was to ill to attend.


All the training things she want to send me on have been silly like: Plastering, plumbing etc. You get the picture.

Then she booked me on a IT course with some company that thought they were god. I went a couple of times, but being spoken to like I was a child wasnt on plus I do have trouble with pens and keyboards after about half an hour of use.

Their attitude was you will attend 15 hours a week or we will stop your money and we get paid for you being here.


She has now put me on another course for English. Now she knows that I have trouble some days even getting out of bed because of my hip. I was due to go on that course today, but, can hardly walk this morning, and bearing in mind it is a 15 min walk from the bus stop I would not be able to do. I emailed the provider so I had a written trail and they were fine about it.

Now, what I would like to know is:

Can I be sanctioned because I did not go. I do not know from day to day how my illnesses will be until I get up in the morning.

If I lose that money, I will be in hardship.

Do I have to participate in these activities at present.

They have had letters from my consultant outlining my illnesses but have chose to ignore them.

Can someone help me to understand what my next course of action is.

I am not due to see advisor till sept 14 but have a feeling I will be called in earlier.

I have been seeing the advisor since Jan 13. So it is not as if they do not know my illnesses.


Shall I get a certificate from my Doctor to say I cannot go to these things yet?

Shall I write to the head office (Belfast) and complain about this.

I am due to be reassessed in October.

I am not saying I will not be able to participate in any activities in the future but not at present.

What will happen when I have my hip op?

I am on Income Based ESA.


The stress this is causing me now is making me sick. I am not sleeping or eating. Eating I am trying to save the money for other bills in case they sanction my money.


Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.


While writing this the post has been and I have appt with Hip Consultant on the 14th July 2014.


Thank you

Those who know more will be along to answer you properly, but I couldn't just read and go. Two things come to mind here, the first being the struggle you have complying with the wrag rules, but if any of this has made you worse then I would hope the GP could help, and the apt with the hip consultant, if I would get in writing their opinion and if whilst waiting for the op they consider you need to not be under so much physical stress maybe that would help?........I hope someone comes up with the best advice and whatever that is, that it helps you. Good Luck.

Thank you for the reply.

The original letter from my consultant that I am under for my COPD did a letter and also stated that my ability to walk some days is impossible with my hip.

They dont seem to have taken any notice.

Hopefully as you said someone will be along to help.

Thank you

Hi, Yes I did and lost.

I was on IB from 1997 then was transferred to ESA in 2012. I was on Contribution Based. This ended in 2013 and I was then transferred to Income based in Dec 2013.

Where next?


My hip problem only came to light last November 2013. The DWP was informed of this but I was told there was nothing that could be done with my claim until it is reassed in October 2014.

When you say you appealed the wrag decision and lost, did you


appeal the decision, the DWP sent it to reconsideration and turned you down and left you in the wrag


or did you


appeal the decision, the DWP took it to reconsideration and stood by their wrag decision so you stated you wanted to appeal and it went to an independent Tribunal and the Tribunal upheld the DWP decision?

If you're too late for appeal, you can put in for a change in circumstance. Have you looked at the support group descriptors?


They can't force you to look for or apply for jobs. You also can't be forced to do things that you can't do and they have to make reasonable adjustments.

I'm guessing this was a conversion award to employment n support allowance from December 2012, praps without a face to face assessment, and possibly without the implications of a time limited award being explained. Nevertheless you're well beyond the absolute limit (thirteen months) for appeal to an employment n support tribunal if you didn't take your appeal that far at the time.


So what are your options now?


During December 13, you were incorrectly advised that nothing could be done until the recommended time for reassessment. Correct advice should have been to declare worsening condition as a change of circumstances and request reassessment of your limited capability for work related activity. Which is what you should do now, with as much medical evidence and supportive evidence as possible from carer/partner, to your benefit delivery centre about how how far you can reliably and repeatedly walk cos of your arthritis and pulmonary disease. Given the resultant chaos from disputes between Government and Atos, it may be a lengthy wait for a decision. But given that some routine reassessments have been delayed indefinitely, it could be an even longer wait if you don't ask for reassessment.


In the meantime, claimants in receipt of employment n support with the work related component shouldn't be hassled by advisers (or work programme providers?) to look for work. Any mandated work related activity should be reasonable for the participant's circumstances and not contraindicated by the ESA85/85A Atos report. Available on request from your benefit delivery centre if you've not already got a copy.




Yes the adviser may try to get you sanctioned for today, but you'll get the chance to explain why it wasn't possible for you to attend. Should a sanction be upheld you may be able to claim hardship (60% to 80% of personal allowance plus work related activity component) from the first day of the sanction.


A Med 3 (unfit) note won't help a claimant in your present position, but if you can get one, a supportive letter from your doctor to explain why your condition impairs your ability to undertake the mandated work related activity might.


A Med 10 note from a hospital doctor, or a Med 3 (unfit) note from your doctor during the recovery period, should evidence good reason for missing work related activity during your hip operation.


Unless you live in Northern Ireland, Belfast is a merely dead letter office. Tasked with sorting all Work n Pensions undeliverable and returned letters. :-)


Best wishes, Margaret. :panda:
