    • 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,

Apologies if this is a silly question but my wife and I are thinking about buying a sofa and like the idea of buying online because of the distance selling rights of being able to send it back if it turns out to be unsuitable.

 

Please can I ask if buying in store and then having the goods delivered is classed as distance selling or am I really embarrassing myself here?

no its not

and DSR went out the windows in 2013 I think

its now CRA.

 

 

but I think the same basic rules apply

i'e because you didn't physically ' view it

you can send it back for a full refund within 14 days as long as you tell them.

 

 

watchout for things like restocking fees or extra charges to come and get it if you do.

read up on CRA.

Just to check - the sofa we are after is not the colour of the sofa in store (but they do sell the colour we want) so where would we stand if it arrives and it's not the shade of colour that they promised?

most of the furniture stores like to boast how their items are hand made to order.

 

This is partially to get round the law for returns but they are not strictly made to a customer specification,

you just get a choice,

same as when you buy a new car

they add the extras at the factory (well find one in the airfield car park that matches)

Hi all.

I went to my local (45 mins away) SCS store to look at a sofa and chair on Friday.

A long story cut short is that I managed to get a good discount over the phone this morning and paid £1000 of the £1750 total.

 

However, the guy on the phone was insisting that I need to go in to the store to sign the documents within 7 days.

I am concerned that the distance selling element will not apply if I go and sign.

Would this be a valid concern, please?

 

Their website states:

This Cancellation and Returns Policy only applies if you made your purchase with ScS online, over the telephone and via our website.

If you have placed your order in one of our stores, please refer to the Terms and Conditions on the reverse of your order form.

 

At ScS, we understand circumstances can change and that you may need to cancel your order or return a product you have purchased from us.

 

Whatever your reason, as with any purchase, your order with ScS is a legal agreement.

This applies to any orders that may need to be cancelled, and products already delivered that may need to be returned.

Hi there.

 

Thank you for that,

I have today received the contract from 'SCS' following my payment of deposit over the phone.

Funnily enough, it does include the line 'given it is a special order being made just for you'. I'm guessing this is what you mean?

 

Also see the 'patch natural scatter' and 'self stitched' that we didn't ask for?

I emailed the following email three times to SCS this week.

 

Hi xxxx

 

Not sure if you got my email but before I come in, I sure would appreciate you replying to my questions?

 

Thank you for the sales documents.

 

A couple of questions

(I have attached scans along with relevant parts highlighted in red):

 

1. There is writing that says something like ''self stitched' - please can you confirm what this means?

 

2. Also, something that looks like 'Patch natural scatter' - please can you confirm what this means?

 

3. You will see that I have underlined a part that states 'given it is a special order being made just for you' - please can I ask what this means?

 

This is not a bespoke product so I hope this does not preclude our right to return if we are unhappy (which I'm sure will not be the case)

 

4. There is no mention of a returns policy on the contract?

 

Hope to hear from you soon on this,

xxxx

 

This first email got reply of 'xxxx will reply to your questions when he returns. Nothing from the next three emails. Hmmmm.....
