    • 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 all,

 

I was wondering if anyone can give me some advice,

 

my dad took finance out with a company called Motonovo finance in July 2015

 

he paid £500 pound deposit and paid a double payment the month after taking the finance out with Motonovo.

 

All payments have been on time and are up to date the payments get payed 21st of every month.

 

Last month December 2015 my dad was working and has his own van which he is fully comp on, I was in the middle of moving house so he said I could lend his car to help me out doing me a favour.

 

I insured the car in my name on the Friday 10th December 10am.

Two days later on Sunday night at midnight I got stopped by police for no insurance

 

I advised the police I had insured the car on Friday and phoned my mum who confirmed to police I had took the insurance out on the day I had said.

 

The car was filled with all my belongings as I was in the middle of moving house.

 

I begged for them to let me go in the following morning with the proof but they dismissed what I had said and compounded the car

 

As you can imagine I was really upset a week or so before Christmas an also as the car was filled with all my stuff and I had done nothing wrong

 

. I was crying so my brother rang the police and made a complaint about the police as they was very intimating towards me when I was stopped

 

it was pitch black and they had pressed the panick button

all police came from no where

there wasn't any female offices there just all male cracking joke and laughing whiles I was crying I got treated disguising a young female on my own.

 

The following morning I rang my insurance and they confirmed I was insured and informed me that it was harsh what had happened as police know it can take up to 7 days to show on the police data base.

 

My policy got sent to me by email and I had printed it out to take to the police to show them I was insured,

 

I then rang the police and they said take it up with Motonovo we haven't got the car no more

 

my dad then rang moto novo who said the police had the car and had been in touch with Motonovo to inform them I had been the police station and could not provide the documents I needed to so not to release the car to us

 

we was confused with this as we had been told not to bother going the police station as they never had the car.

 

I then sent the proof over to Motonovo showing the car was insured at the time it was taken from police.

 

We got told to take it up with the police

this went on for days and days

police refused to release the car even though Motonovo didn't have a problem with the car being released at this time.

 

Motonovo recovered the car

we then spoke to the manger in the recoveries at Motonovo who said if we could get the police to confirm the car was insured they would release the car either though the proof had been sent to show it was he wanted the police to confirm.

 

I then went on to get in touch with the police man who had took the car who confirmed to me he had looked it up and the car was insured and legal to be on the road at the time it was taken, he refused to put it in wrighting but said he was speak to Motonovo direct.

 

I then rang moto novo who then said they want full settlement due to the terms and conditions being broke because my dad wasn't on the insurance policy

 

they took another payment on the 21st of December all payments have been on time and they have had a payment whiles having the car.

 

The car should never of been took in the first place

also there are no missing psyments on the account

but they are refusing to release the car

 

I think this is completely unfair on my dad he's a honest hard working man who had provided for his family all his life

 

, they are saying they will sell the car at auction then he will have to pay whatever remains so not only has the car been took unfairly and payments are up to date he will be in debt with them.

 

if anyone has any information on what we can do thatvwould be grate

 

thank you for reading this and I look forward to hearing back

 

sorry if there is any spelling mistakes also in advance

 

ha thanks again, Lois.

Send them the ins policy that shows he is insured to driver the car?

 

There were two policies...so what..doesnt matter to moto

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Possibly, were you added to your fathers policy or did you start a new policy

Did you have existing insurance on a car of your own

 

What does the finance agreement say as to your fathers use of the vehicle

 

However really you have tried to do the correct thing, common sense should prevail

Thanks for replying,,,

I was the only one on the insurance for the car what's on finance.

 

My dad has insurance on his van fully comp and is insured to drive any car

but because he wasn't on the policy for the car

he has the finance with there saying he's broke clurs 6.1.9 of the agreement.

 

The car should of not been took by police in the first place

and payments have been spot on

 

I can't get my head around how they can do this..

 

However I am looking at my dads paper work now and I can't fine the clause 6.1.9 stated on his paperwork

the police matter can be subject to complaint as above but that is not the urgent issue

but what you need to concentrate on are motonovo

 

Technically what they are saying may well be correct, in order to protect their asset, he should have had a specific policy, but this is was obv iously unintentional

 

If possible please post up a copy of the agreement minus personal details

How much was the total agreement, and how much has been paid to date inc the deposit

 

have motonovo issued a default notice

The main problem you will find with Motonovo is that the vehicle wasn't insured by your father. Even if he had been driving the vehicle and the police seized the car, Motonovo would look to repossess if they took the car from the impound.

 

Car finance companies almost always include an insurance clause in their T&C's, they insist the vehicle is insured fully comprehensive.

 

What would have happened if the car was stolen or caught fire, it would not have been insured. If he had a fleet policy covering all his vehicles, that would suffice, alternatively the specific vehicle would need to be included on his policy. If the only insurance on the vehicle was in your name, with your dad not mentioned on the insurance, then this would be a breach of terms as it would suggest your dad had financed the car on your behalf, which would be considered accommodation/fronting.

 

Probably not what you wanted to hear, but Motonovo are not likely to be very helpful.
