    • 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 guys please can you help me with this charge for staying too long on a car park in Preston

 

The Notice is from Parking eye and it states

On 20 September 2015 vehicle ******* entered the Corporation street retail park at 11:21:43 and departed at 13:04:24 on 20 September 2015.

 

The signage, which is clearly displayed at the Entrance to and throughout the car park, states this is a private car park and is managed by Parkingeye Ltd, the maximum free stay authorized is 1 hour 20 minutes, along with other terms and conditions set out in the signage.....it goes on and on :(

 

How do I fight this charge please?

 

The car park serves 4 largish stores

Akaban...a craft store...I could spend a good hour there at times

Poundland

Poundstretcher and

Aldi

On that day I visited all 4 of the stores....the queue at the Aldi store was pretty busy as well! Plus I walk at a slow pace and use a walking stick but I dont have a blue badge

 

Have I got a chance of getting this parking charge cancelled for my daughter please?

Do you have your receipts for the day in question?

 

If so, then a simple appeal from the RK denying liability for the charge and enclosing copies of receipts.

 

The driver should not be identified.

bank statement showing cash withdrawl?

Check with council to see if there are planning restrictions/consents that express parking period as many developments say 2 or 3 hours customer parking as part of PP. In the mannwhile write to all of the stores where you bought stuff complaining about the problem asn ask them to nag the landlord to get the ticket cancelled. tell them that you would like copies of their correspondence as you feel it is vital for the shops to support their customers or they wont be customers for much longer if you can only make a flying visit. Leave them thinking that the matter is of interest to the local press so they respond/react

Use gpeol. There has been no loss. Infact, Aldi made a profit off you parking there as you shopped.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Explain please? Oh and I got some rather nice photos of the signs, one hidden behind a bush, another at least 8ft up a pole and one where the print is so small you need to go rigth up to it to read...I will post tomorrow, tonight I am exhausted :(

Well, if the signage is as you state, then that's one appeal that will get this closed. Gpeol makes 2. Then planning permission/contracts can make 3, but parking eye can be crafty with those

Just had a letter from Parkingeye that states

The requirements of schedule 4 of the protection of Freedoms act required for the keeper liability have now been satisfied and as a result , we must inform you that in accordance with schedule 4 Parkingeye now has the right to recover any unpaid Parking charge from you, the registered keeper.

 

This is because either, not in receipt of the correct name and current postal address of the driverand/or no information has been provided or you have identified someone who has denied they were the driver at the time of the parking event or has not responded at the address given. In these instances, as outlined in schedule 4, the registered keeper becomes liable for the parking charge once 29 days pass from the date given(which is presumed to be the second working day after the Date Issued]

 

We have not had a letter asking for the driver at the time of the parking event! what do we do now please? We c an not risk getting a CCJ in my daughters name as she is applying for a mortgage :(
