    • post re submitted  we are quite secure with that. it's ok to it here  you need to formerly WRITE to BMW AND to the finance co. (who is?) and REJECT the car under your short term right to reject. 100's of threads here on Big Motoring World, and they scammed you out of a useless warranty too, you dont need it ever, CRA covers you for FREE. dx  
    • Hey there, as the plane went tech you are entitled to the £520 x2 compensation under EC261. This is a clear cut case. Just claim straight with Virgin. However you are not entitled to a full refund, since you were eventually flown to the final destination; of course that second flight should have been totally free of charge; if not you must bill Virgin for it. Your mum+sis are also entitled to full reimbursment of taxis to and from the hotel, as well as meals+refreshments that they had for the entire duration of the unexpected stop, including both at the hotel and airport. (Just stay reasonable: no claiming for 49 pina coladas at the beach bar) Was their luggage returned to them during the unexpected stop? If not they may also claim for any toiletries and clothing that they had to purchase during the night stop. I understand the hotel has already been paid for, just don't forget the rest. Hopefully they have kept the receipts. Otherwise bank statements should do the trick. You need to claim for this in addition of the £1040 Other than the above there is no statutory compensation due for missing out on 1.5days of holiday. You could however talk to someone at customer service and make a polite request to extend your stay by another couple days and see if they will do it for you free of charge (providing they have space). Or if not, you could possibly get some token gesture of money back or voucher off your next holiday. It's worth trying. That you paid £700 for a name change is unfortunate but it's completely unrelated to the situation at hand. Above all I hope they don't worry too much about this mishap, and make the most of their holiday. Compensation is practically guaranteedwhen they are back. Just tell them to save all receipts they have and don't worry about the rest until they're back!
    • thats not a delay thats just standard processing.   it has to be 2+ months for it to be a delay

    • 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.

Ive never posted before and my spelling is really bad so I apologise in advance!

 

I went to drive my car this afternoon and it was gone!!

 

 

I panicked and called the police,

they told me it had been towed due to no tax.

I couldnt call the company because its shut.

 

 

I checked online and said untaxed!

 

 

I went in my direct debits and its still active,

went to both dates (read somewhere they will take it 4 days after if failed)

and a week either side of both and there is available money???!

THEY HAVEN'T TRIED TO TAKE IT?

 

Can anyone give me a reason why this would happen?

 

 

I'm guessing the clamping place are going to be a problem and I'm going to have to pay the release anyway but can I claim it back?

Also havent received any letter or email.

.it was only supposed to be taken out last week on the 2nd?!

 

Such a ball ache before christmas and majorly panicked as I thought it had been stolen!

 

 

Didnt think they could do that, thought theyd clamp jesus!

 

Many thanks for any help x

well do some checks from your end

your bank should be able to tell you if the DD was requested by them.

 

 

if its been running for 5mts and they just failed to request it

then its a DVLA error and your should not have to pay anything to anyone to get it back.

 

 

forearmed is a good weapon with the DVLA.
