    • 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.

 

Here's a link to the forum stikky about answering questions for an ESA assessment. Sadly leemack wasn't able to complete the mental health version, hopefully someone here will link to an organisation whose website can help. Have you looked at Rethink?

I need to be brutally honest and I am not a troll as I have been/am in the same situation.

 

I was on ESA and called for a WCA based on my anxiety/depression/mental state.

 

Needless to say I scored ZERO and shoved on to UC even though my GP says I am not fit for work.

 

Just console yourself that some practitioner who does not know you and some oik at the DWP knows you better than your GP and can say you are FIT FOR WORK.

 

Unless you are a danger to yourself,

have loads of evidence from a mental health team etc you WILL NOT keep ESA after the WCA.

 

Sorry to be so brutal about it but it is best not to worry about the WCA,

 

you WILL NOT pass it and keep ESA just on depression and seeing your GP as I was in the same position.

 

Hardly anyone passes the WCA so you are not alone.

 

Simply it is the nasty party and DWP setting you up to fail and make you iller than you already are ...

 

As I said, I am not being nasty just truthful based on my own experience and the experience of many others.

 

You will be shoved on to UC.

 

I know you did not want to hear/read this but it is best to know what is goingto happen than over worry about it.
