    • Thank you for these uploads. I've had a look at the documents – both your claim form and the defence. They are both pretty sparse but from what I see, I'm afraid that I don't rate your chances of success very much. Why haven't you sued Interparcel or Evri? I asked you earlier on to post a bullet pointed chronology – and you haven't done that. I think we need to see the whole story. You bought an item from Amazon Germany – what date? The item failed – what date? You notified Amazon within the warranty period – what date? They then said you were outside the warranty period – why? You then sent the items back to Amazon – who made the arrangements for the return? You chose Interparcel – why? I don't see where parcel2go comes into it. They aren't a courier company they are simply brokers. I then gather that it was transported by Evri and it was lost while in their care stop You really have given very little the story either to us or to the court's or to the defendant. You came here in April for some advice but rather than answer our questions you went off on your own and am sorry to say I think that you might have thrown this case away. Give us more details and we will see if it can be rescued. You may find that you are in a position where you have to abandon this case and then go directly after Interparcel or after Evri. This would mean that you have sacrificed the claim fee on this particular case but at least you stand a better chance of getting your money back. Please answer the questions. It's very tiresome asking you questions and then not getting responses or having to chase you for them.     Also, have you prepared a witness statement and a court bundle? If so, where are they? If you haven't – then why not

    • 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.

Been trying Win Phone Sat Nav (Here Drive+), not bad. seems v good in fact, quite accurate, with speed limit prompts, spoken street names, etc. Partic as can be used 'offline' once a map has been downloaded (via wifi). ie no data charges. :)

any thoughts/experience

My experience is with iphone and TomTom app :

 

Advantages :

"convergence", only needs 1 bit of kit, easy to remember to take it so it doesn't get left in the car to get nicked, free map updates as app updates (rather than having to pay for new maps)

 

Only downside so far : risk of getting a call you need to take just as you are about to reach a critical junction .....

Garmin Nuvi and M8 on Android, with a remote village house name, and postcode, then so long as there is phone signal when you plan the route, M8 will most likely get you there whereas the Garmin takes you to the centre of the postcode,

 

Only problem M8 seems to have vanished from the Google Play Store.

We could do with some help from you.

I use Mapfactor Navigation on my Android phone and tablet pc. With this app you get the choice of using open street maps (which can be occasionally wrong-not often) or paying for the TomTom maps.

 

I use the free maps which download fully to my sd card so all I need is a GPS location, no wifi needed (although it helps)

 

This is the best free app I have come across so far. Within two or three seconds of passing a new speed limit sign, the app changes display and an audible warning sounds if I am going even slightly over the limit.

 

The only disadvantage I have found is that it doesn't tell me when I am being a kn*b on the road :lol:

I use Here Drive+ on my Windows Phone often and find it not only reliable route mapping but also very accurate.

The best bit is at the bottom of the screen where it does tell you the correct road speed limit.

I have never used the voice spoken directions, I also have a Garmin and after using the voice on that I have been put off for life using them.

NEVER telephone a DCA

If a DCA rings you, refuse to go through the security questions & hang up!

yeah, on the garmin 2447 i tried on loan, sometimes a speed limit wasnt even shown. yet on the same roads the phone nav did. also some of the voice street pronunciation on the garmin is incorrect, phone nav being ok.

also, phone has similar useful mapping/route options, and reroutes quickly. and has the same onscreen info eg speed/arrival/distance...

though the garmin does have speed cameras, lane guidance, and traffic option. traffic on the phone requiring realtime data connection (at cost if no unlimited/free data), havent tried that.

wld've thought a dedicated nav wld be the way to go, but seems maybe not? (unless i suppose is for professional use eg lorry/courier driver)

overall, was surprised tbh to see how good the win phone nav is. all free with a phone, of which a decent one can be had for the same or less price as a dedicated sat nav!

I use the free maps which download fully to my sd card...

.

 

this seems to be an issue with win phone, maybe to addressed in w10. but, there is an app that bypasses this limitation, but re maps downloaded after install of the app, prior ones wld need to be re downloaded.

 

also, with w phone nav set to no 'unpaved roads', it still directed to go on one. a minor issue, as apparently garmin does that also sometimes. dont know about tom.

 

free world maps though, in case ever go driving in kuwait or vatican city for eg :)
