    • I understand that the item was correctly declared but the value was under declared. When you enter into any kind of contract, there has to be in agreement as to exactly what is being exchange for what. You agree to pay a certain amount of money for the delivery. They agreed in return for that to carry out the delivery safely – but they also agreed to shoulder a certain level of risk based on your own valuation. This means that the value that you gave for the chair is what they reasonably expected to be the extent of their risk in the event that the item was lost or damaged – or stolen. I'm afraid that by undervaluing it, our view is that you would be unlikely to recover anything more. There is never any advantage in declaring and undervalue. It effectively gives a gift to the service provider because when something goes wrong then that becomes the extend their liability. If you want to try and sue for the proper value then we will be happy to help you but I don't rate your chances. If you want to sue for the undervalue then I think your chances are extremely high. The item was lost – it wasn't damaged. Even if it was damaged, there was no particular suggestion that not being flat packed in some way contributed to the risk of damage but certainly it is impossible to conceive how being flat packed or not flat packed would affect the risk of the chair been lost. In fact in my view, because the item was a large item one would imagine that it would be more difficult to lose it. If you want to continue with this claim either for the full value of the undervalue then we will be happy to support you. Please make sure you've done the reading. I can tell that you've done some reading but I'm afraid the fact that you don't appear to have appreciated the consequence of an undervaluation suggest to me that you haven't read very thoroughly. I think it is important to make sure that you understand the principles of claiming for failed parcel deliveries completely. It will put you in control. It will give you confidence. There is no downside. Do the reading. Post a draft documents here so we can check before you send them off.

    • 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 there

 

Quick question, one which would be helpful for many others as well.

 

1. Can someone have a friend with them when they go to the Job center to sign on? EG to act as a witness?

 

2. What part of the regulations allow this?

 

I am pretty sure the answer is yes, just need the regs to back me up when I go with my friend next. Today he opened his claim and I was refused permission to go up with him.

Thank you all kindly.

 

Now as the representative, can I make a complaint, or does the claimant have too?

 

The situation was that the claimant needed to go upstairs, I went to go through and I stated that I was with "him"

She said no, you have to wait down here.

No questions asked etc

 

I later asked for details to make a complaint to the center manager and explained why, she said I had no right to go up there. I explained that the regulations allow me to. She got quite rude about it.

 

Question is, as the non claimant do I do anything this time, or just take that handy document that I just printed out, with me next Wednesday :)

 

Along with the universal toolkit etc.

 

To quote a song, "I predict a riot"

Your prediction of a riot may well come to pass. At the very least, there'll be lots of faff and fluster while the work coach goes to seek guidance from on high. Here's some more ammunition;

Personally, I wouldn't bother with a formal complaint over this cos you don't need the stress. Complaints to Jobcentreplus are hard work for little, if any, reward. However if you want to complain; as your friend's representative, you'll need written third party authority from your friend to act on his behalf.

 

Best wishes, Margaret.

Thanks Margaret.

 

Im determined that my friend will not get ripped off like he did years ago last time he signed on when he was sanctioned, won his appeal and then they closed his claim and refused to backdate the sanction etc. Basically it meant that he lost all faith in the system and has existed pennyless since then.

Im determined to get im back in the system and back to a postion where he can get a job :)

Also bear in mind that as an interested party and on a previous occasion been subject to a worker not correctly following the rules, you may wish to state that you want the interview held in private and recorded. Again special rules apply and this will need to be asked for in advance so that the interview room is prepared and available, this will save further delays.

Then you can use this information at a later date if it is needed.
