    • 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.

Hello Every one

 

I am Not sure what to do and i am looking for your advice on what i should do here is the story

 

In July 2014 I borrowed a neighbour a tool set for the day and i asked him many times to return it but he said he hasn't finished with it that was a few months after he borrowed it.

 

Then he stopped speaking to me now the other day my partner asked him to return it and he said he did not have it or not sure where it is, or some one he let in house stole it ( I do not think heis telling the truth and think he wants to keep my tools )

 

I was going to leave it at that and not bother with him. but the tools hold sentimental value as my late farther bought them for me and i borrowed them to him in good faith.

 

I know this person has stolen tools from work colleagues before as he told me he did when he worked in a garage.

 

i was thinking on just going to the shop where tools were bought and sending him a bill for a new set and if he did not pay after bill take him to small claims court. but i do not know if this would be good option.

 

I think its theft but not sure what do you people think

 

Thanks for any advice

To prove theft by him you have to show that he has them (or disposed of them), rather than they were stolen from him.

So, unless you can show that, it isn't provable theft, regardless of your suspicions.

 

However, he is liable to replace them or pay you for them, if they were lost or taken from his care.

Hi Thank you for taking time to reply

 

Not sure what next port of call would be i was considering a bill letter maybe giving the person 30 days before action but i need to find exact set.

 

if the tools say cost £30 does any one know what charges i can add on at fist i intend to just ask for replacement but after the time is up.

 

i wont pay fees but no idea if you can charge them or not or interest as this has been going on since 2014 I am having issues as i do not like the person Thank you for any help

Charges aren't added until you start incurring them.. eg if you were to issue a claim against your neighbour.

 

 

What type of tools are they and if you loaned them to the neighbour in 2014, when did you start asking for their return ?

I guess your first move would be to write a letter to your neighbour - point out that the tools were loaned on the understanding they were returned.

 

 

You either want the tools returned, intact, undamaged by DATE or the replacement value of £amount. Failing which you will issue a claim via the County Court with out further reference to the neighbour.
