    • 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 everyone,

I joined Xercise4less in september 2013 and my first direct debit came out on the 5th sept 2013. I signed up online to a 12 month contract and never actually went to the gym, yet still paid for the 12 months before cancelling on the 13th month.

 

I have recieved a letter dated the 26th march 2015 saying that the CRS are employed by x4l and my membership remains in arrears despite previous letters being sent to me (this is the first letter i recieved)

 

They then say that they have added their fees of £102.50 and my balance is now £207.47!!!!

 

I ignored this letter and then recieved another one dated the 16th april 2015 giving me two options.. either legal action or outsource to external agents.

 

I have spoken to the gym to which they were extreamly unhelpful and rude!! And i have also phone CRS themselves.

 

I have no idea what to do about it!

Hi Zek and welcome to CAG

 

Do not speak to the gym or to Harlands / CRS. Stay off the phone and deal with this in writing only. If they call you, tell them to write, then hang up !!

 

Clearly you were passed the initial 12 month agreement. But, when you cancelled the DD mandate, did you give Harlands or the gym a month's notice.

 

If not, you may owe one final payment.

 

But you should not pay any of Harlands/CRS's admin fees.

 

Be assured that Harlands/CRS have no powers and can do nothing other than annoy you. Court action is highly unlikley if you follow our advice.

 

:-)

In that case, write to Harlands offering to pay a final month's fee for the notice period.

 

See here for a letter to adapt for your own case - http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?441527-Harlands-CRS-back-down-**SORTED**&p=4695016&viewfull=1#post4695016

 

Send to Harlands but get a free Certificate of Posting from the PO when you send it.

 

Keep us posted.

Harlands and CRS operate from the same office and are essentially one outfit.

 

So write to Harlands at CRS's address.

Hi slick, sorry for not being in touch! I have recieved another letter from CRS after i sent my letter saying i would pay a further 9.99 using the guide that you gave me. I have had text messages and phone calls inbetween that i have not responded too. They have said how their charges are enforceable and as a gesture of good will have reduced the full amount from £207.47 to £132.47 if paid within 7 days. Please help :(

Hi Zek,

 

Reply to Harlands (not CRS) :-

 

Dears sir or madam,

 

I refer to your letter using CRS letterheading of xxdate and decline your "goodwill" offer.

 

In my letter of xxdate, I offered to settle the matter reasonably.

 

You chose to ignore my offer and it is now withdrawn. I consider the matter closed.

 

If you contact me further as Harlands or as CRS or if you cause any other party to demand payment, I will make formal complaints to Trading Standards and The CMA.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

Let us know how they reply.
