    • its a 12mts contract else why would it say till 2021 and first month..   simply states they don't charge a joining fee clever marketing ploy as people don't read things. it IS a monthly payment, that runs for 12mts.   but anyway there is stuff and all anyone can do to you.   dx        
    • Hi Slick,   Amazingly fast reply, thank you!   According to the reference on the payment it says "ON 24 SEP BCC" and the payment cleared 25th September at 11:26   I was simply told to sign up on the website by a staff member in the gym, no further information was given to me by them. The website stated that it's a rolling monthly membership that could be cancelled at any time "No contract membership JUST £14.99 a month, until 2021*" As far as I am aware there was absolutely no minimum membership length, unless there's some small print I've missed somewhere. But Harlands haven't mentioned anything about me being obliged to pay for a certain length of time so... I've attached a picture to this post of what I signed up for.   Also, I'm not sure if this has any relevance at all but the building is plastered with £9.99/month signs EVERYWHERE yet it costs £14.99 when you go on the website. False advertising 🙄 Could perhaps use that as leverage in a letter if it comes to it, I dunno? 😂

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Hi all,

 

I've had a good google around for an answer but seems to be misleading.

 

 

I purchased a car from the lovely Carcraft and had this drive happy guarantee pushed on me

which at the time seemed like the wise thing to do.

 

 

I've since come to the point where it really isn't cost effective for me to drive from my home

in Macclesfield to either Liverpool or Rochdale for a car service,

 

 

As such I'm yet to get the car serviced at all and have now paid roughly 6/7 payments at £50 a go.

 

Is there a way out of this contract?

I'm such it could be arranged to get it done locally

 

we have a car craft rep that very good

I have alert them to this thread.

 

as a side issue, there is no legal requirements at all to take out ANY insurances or warranties when purchasing any item on HP

 

 

you could reclaim it like PPI.

Hi Matt

 

Thanks for that, the cancellation policy is 30 days from purchase, so sadly we cannot cancel this for you at this stage, however, if you can provide me your registration number we can try and look into this further for you.

 

Many thanks

Linzi,

 

I am aware that i can't cancel under the 30 days from purchase clause.

 

 

BUT i have not used this service i am not looking for a refund of monies already paid

 

 

i just want to not pay anymore for a service that is no use to me.

 

 

The car reg is .....

 

 

I have made two attempts to book the car in for service but unless i get there before dinner on a Saturday

i will have to take day of work just to get my car serviced!!

 

 

And god forbid they say it wont be ready or there is a problem waiting for a part etc.

 

 

I'll be car less stuck in Rochdale!

 

Regards

 

Matt

AND...... before you say i can get the car serviced at my local dealer then apply for payment,

 

 

Your rules/Regs for doing so are far too complex for me.

 

 

I pay you a monthly payment already to then pay for a car service

and try and justify and claim that back from carcraft..

 

 

..Id rather not have the stress.

 

Regards

 

Matt

Hi Linzi,

 

Have we managed to make any progress with the above? I was contacted by carcraft merely to let me know they were looking into this for me but still to date have not had anything back.

Linzi,

 

I would like to thank you for your help in dealing with this matter.

 

 

I would also like to note to those who have commented/read this thread the end result.

 

Carcraft's drive happy guarantee carry's T&C's which only allow cancellation up to 30 days - as DX said above this could be challenged,

 

 

In my case however carcraft have emailed for speed and posted a letter offering to cancel my guarantee with no further cost's to myself.

 

 

In my case i did state that my priority was to cancel the policy to prevent further costs

and not seeking a refund of monies already paid.

Again you could possibly challenge that too?

But in any case I am very happy with the outcome.

 

Another note seeing as I am relatively new to this site/forum is big thank you (via donation)

 

 

as i really did not think i would get to this stage

 

 

and i could not have done so without CONSUMER GROUP ACTION!!

 

Regards

 

Matthew
