    • I am getting conflicting advice from friends about this issue. I am hoping somebody can end my confusion. A couple of weeks ago I took my Mum out for her birthday. Another driver scratched the front passenger side near the bumper of my car as it was parked up. There are no dents just quite severe paint work damage. He scraped his car against mine. The other driver drove off. Luckily there was 2 witnesses who got the other drivers reg number. Cut a log story short the other driver said he didn’t realise he damaged the paintwork on my car. He has however admitted liability. His insurance is paying out. Last Thursday my car was taken away to have the paintwork done. Today I been told my car has been put down as a total loss (not a write off).  As it is only paintwork damage and not body work or mechanical damage, I don't understand why it has been put down as a total loss. I have been told by the insurers I can either write the car off and receive payment to the value of the car or I can take a lower payment and get the car repaired myself.   I am getting conflicting advice from friends. Some are saying if I keep my car and get the repairs done myself the car will then be classed as a category S or category M and I will no longer be able get insurance on the car as it will be classed as written off. As it is only paintwork damage and not body work or mechanical damage, I don't understand that. My questions are  If I take the payment to get the paintwork repair done myself will I still be able to insure my car when the insurance is up for renewal? If I take the payment to get the paintwork repair done myself will my current insurance policy be voided? If my car does get classed as category M or S will the stop me from selling it on the future? Thanks
    • Yes, it is just for Tesco. But as that manager explained, those two spaces on that ground are now rented by the electric company. "What appeal?  Private parking companies never, ever, ever accept appeals - ever." What is my next move then, please? Just wait for them to issue me with whatever it is they issue, and then what? 
    • so how are you doing OP?  Letter of claim ready?

    • 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.

 

I am having issues trying to pay an outstanding water bill to United Utilities,

it's a final water and wastewater bill.

 

 

I received this bill a few days ago at a property I gave as a forwarding address when I moved house back in May

( this bill is for the last few months that I lived at the property ).

 

I have contacted the number(s) on this bill and they connect to a company called Orbit which is a debt collection agency.

 

I informed them That I wanted to deal with this bill through United utilities and not Orbit but they weren't having it.

 

I rang United Utilities on a general enquiry number to get some sort of answer

but again the operator at United utilities said I had to go through Orbit,

 

 

I made it clear to them that I would only deal with United Utilities and not Orbit and when pressed said that it has nothing to do with United utilities.

 

The thing is does anyone have any idea how I can get through to the water company and get them to deal with this bill?

 

Thanks.

yes it would but ofcourse you'd need your account number with UU

most interweb banking portals [your banking site]

you can select via pulldown list - utilities

and sometimes UU are listed there

then all you do isput in your account number as their ref number so the money goes off the right account shall we say.

 

 

strange UU wont deal on the phone

pretty grass IMHO.

they could take payment there and then.

 

 

but you are totally correct

you don't have to deal with any no powers DCA

they ARE NOT BAILIFFS

and don't even own the debt

Yes I have paid UU through my internet banking in the past for this address so I will dig it out.

 

They want a payment of a little over £200 ( bank giro attached ) and as I've said it needs to be split paid.

 

Would this action keep the wolves from the door so to speak ?

 

Just to add, as I've no old water bills would the likelihood of the account number on this final bill be the same for previous bills or do you think it has changed due to Orbit getting on board ?

 

Thanks.

I've just been thinking, the reason I wanted to contact UU is to sort out a payment plan over a couple of months as I have stated but to no avail.

 

I can't really make a payment till the end of the month which I a couple of weeks away.

 

Do you think a small gratuitous payment will suffice ?

Thanks dx, this is the problem, actually ringing them and getting anywhere !!

 

I will go down the Internet banking route and go from there.....

 

Just for anyone reading this thread who has similar issues with outstanding water bills just be aware that the bill you may get for any outstanding charges may direct you ( upon contacting then ) to a debt collection agency, in this case Orbit. I do believe they 'work' with other water authorities.

 

Thanks again.
