    • thank you. Under the Consumer Rights Act you are entitled to have a vehicle of satisfactory quality.   If a defect appears within the first 6 months of ownership which means that the car is not satisfactory then you are required to give the dealer a single opportunity to repair or else refund you.   So the question is what condition would a car of that make model, age and mileage and price be in.   I think the best way forward is to raise the issue with the dealer but also start to make your own researches as to whether the rust damage to this vehicle is beyond what would be expected of a vehicle of that character and in those circumstances.   When you have discovered. then come back here.   Additionally, you haven't told us the cost of the vehicle. that would be helpful to know because it will affect the quality of vehicle that you would reasonably expect.   Also I asked you the name of the dealer and you haven't told us. Are you trying to protect them?                
    • Thank you Slick132. I don't have in writing how long the actual works themselves would take but believe they said it was two weeks.   I spoke with CAB earlier today and they've said I can cancel this order as the company are already in breach of the terms, plus catching them out re the manufacturer's and the buildings regs she said to put in writing that I was cancelling and mention breach of consumer protection, unfair trading regulations and the fact that they are wilfully misleading me.   She said the credit card company will handle the refund as I hoped. I don't want them working for me in any way shape or form now.
    • Hi thanks for replying, The car was registered in 2009 ½, as I said a 59 plate. Mileage, when I got it it had circa 45K miles, it now has circa 72K miles. I have had it for 3 years almost to the month. I got it from a dealership in Loughborough, on the selling point that it was low mileage and was dealership serviced. Shortly after my return home to Southampton, I took it into my local dealership for a once over, part of which entailed one of their mechanics sitting with me while I drove around locally. I wanted them to take over looking after the car for me. Hope this helps?
    • just remember a DCA is NOT A BAILIFF and have ZERO   legal powers on any debt no matter what it's type.
    • Hi.   You've posted in the self-employment forum although as I understand it you can only be made redundant as an employee.   I've moved your thread to the Employment forum, people should be along to advise later.   HB

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

I hope this is the right forum, feel free to move if not.

 

I bought a wood and glass display cabinet and paid £25 delivery charge. The driver phoned to say they would arrive between 1 and 4 on Saturday. I queried them to ask if they were still delivering at 20 to 5 on the delivery date and they said they were a few minutes away.

They arrived at 5.20 and one delivery man carried the glass shelves in and the 2 of them the cabinet. I have ordered items from the firm before and have always had to sign on delivery. I turned to get a pen and the drivers were literally running away. I then noticed ( and this was seconds after they had left) that the entire top wooden corner of the cabinet had been torn off . I had not been offered any paperwork to sign.

 

I went into the shop and asked to speak to the manager. She was off that day and the assistant manager dealt with it. I had taken some photos of the damage which was extensive. The shop would not have allowed an item to leave in that condition and it was not fit for purpose or of merchantable quality. The stockroom supervisor told me that he had helped load the cabinet on the van.

 

I showd him the photos and he confirmed the item was not damaged when it left the shop. The assistant manager told me that the item would be picked up the following Saturday.I would receive a refund but not before the item was back in the shop. The shop did not have another cabinet to replace the damaged one, and refused to repair it. They told me that once the item was returned they would "just bin it".

 

I live in an apartment building and the lift broke down on the day that they were supposed to come and pick it up. I told the Assistant Manager and he said they'd just collect it when the lift was working. In the meantime I asked advice and was told that the cabinet was easily repairable..my preferred choice. The lift was repaired today so I went into the store and asked to see the manager. I explained what had happened. Her attitude was unpleasant from the start but the assistant manager confirmed the situation.

 

I offered the manager the drivers phone number, the images of the damage and my receipt for payment but she was dismissive. She just repeatedly stated that " the first thing to do is to get the item in and then I'll investigate". I am a litle reluctant to part with the item with no assurance of a refund or what,if any, action would be taken when the furniture was returned, especially given that when I asked what the company's complaints procedure was she refused to tell me.

 

I assume that the delivery drivers have insurance. Could I get the item repaired and send them the bill? Thanks for any advice

Hello there.

 

As this is a voluntary forum, people may not turn up immediately to answer your question. I expect they'll be along later with advice for you. :)

They have the right to get the items back and are not obliged to get them repaired by your repairer. If you don't want to let them go then they will not give you a refund, your choice

It is easier to enter a rich man than for a camel to pass a needle
