    • 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.

My Wife got a letter of fine for parking in an Aldi car park in Ayrshire from Parking eye of £70.00,

with an offer of £40.00 if payed within 7 days,

 

 

she had been in Aldi for some of the time but did not keep the receipt.

 

 

we have ignored the letters as we consider it an unenforceable [problem],

 

 

the third letter mentions possible further action.

 

 

Is this action legal in Scotland ?.

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

and they

Thanks DX100uk and renegadeimp Ericsbrother,

The letter says

Outstanding Parking Charge Amount Due.

 

We note from our records that the previous two parking Charge Notices we have sent you,

which refer to the Parking Charge issued in accordance with the terms and conditions for parking in the Aldi Car Park on 22/01/2015, Remain outstanding.

 

The amount now payable is £70.00 * This payment is required within 7 days or further action may be taken.

 

If this letter is ignored, further action may include instruction of solicitors to secure immediate payment or the issuing of court proceedings

which could incur further costs which may be added to the amount owed.

 

 

To avoid further unnecessary costs or action, please pay the outstanding parking charge amount as stated above

or make arrangements for the driver to pay, in accordance with the parking terms and conditions.

 

Yours faithfully

Legal Department

ParkingEye Ltd

 

 

My Wife parked there to go into Aldi and made purchases in the shop, then left the Car there to go and pick up our Daughter from the nearby Dentist,

A few days later she received a letter from ParkingEye with a picture of the Car and registration number, We have since ignored their demands.

 

 

Am I correct that in Scotland that only Police and Local authority notices are binding and that private companys have no Legal enforcement right to collect,

so rely on fear for collection ?.

In Scotland, contract law is the same but no PoFA so no keeper liability from breach of contract can ever be created.

 

It is for PE to prove who was driving at the time and thus who the contract was with.

 

No-one has to help them in this task

 

so if it was me I would write a letter as registered keeper of the vehicle saying that no liability is accepted

and that PE provide "strict proof" of any evidence of their contract being formed with the keeper of the vehicle as the PoFA does not apply in Scotland.

 

They will then have to either identify the driver at the time or give up.

 

They will be forced to do the latter for economic reasons if nothing else.

Thanks ericsbrother,

 

I contacted Aldi customer services,

 

Aldi own the car park and hire ParkingEye to collect money from non customers who park there and go somewhere else

 

I was told that we should go into store with receipt,

which we don't have and try and trace sale so charge can be scrapped,

 

then the customer service rep asked my surname,

 

then the line went dead as soon as I answered.

Thanks ericsbrother, I will write to them tomorrow. I went in to Aldi today and explained that a purchase was made that day, the Manager said that the time parked and with no receipt they could do nothing, and that I would need to take it up with ParkingEye.

They cant do anything anyway. PE know this and they would be extremely stupid if they even considered court action.

Thanks for the Links determindator, very interesting, I am getting different advice on the matter, some advise to write to ParkingEye LTD and other advice to ignore them as they have no right of enforcement in Scotland and that a reply gives them ammo to harass further. The Town we stay has never had parking charges from the Council due to a local bye Law, so as the Council cannot apply parking charges, surely private Land owners also cannot.

Today I spoke to a Shop worker who works in a Shop at the same parking area covered by ParkingEye LTD, and he told me that we don't need to pay the charge and to ignore it. I am getting two sides of advice, which is send them a letter, or ignore them, and I have great respect for everyone who offers advice to us. Anyone got experience to post here of dealing with ParkingEye in Scotland ?.

I personally think you should follow the advice you have been given on here, these people have gotten to know a lot about these kind of things and know what they are talking about, all its going to cost you is the price of a stamp and 2 mins of your time.

 

Do it :)

 

Elf.
