    • 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.

On 11/05/2018 at 12:36 I was amazed to spot a gap in the red and yellow lines on the hospital perimeter road close to the Willow Annexe which I was visiting for pre surgery assessment.

 

Since I have very troublesome arthritic knees and ankles only having a 200 yd walk was like a gift from the gods.

The gap in the lines was twice the size my car would need and I assumed that whoever had been parked there must have just moved.

I parked up and went off to my appointment.

 

When I came back, to my astonishment there was a ticket on the windscreen.

I took some photos to prove I was not on red or yellow lines, got in the car, opened the plastic envelope and found that the accusation was, in fact, "Causing Obstruction".

 

he perimeter road in that area is wide enough for two buses at least to pass each other,

I wasn't obstructing the road, and I certainly wasn't obstructing the footpath.

 

Any advice as to whether they can make this stick would be appreciated.

 

I have not yet contacted Liberty Printers who issued the Parking Charge, which says £80 or £40 if paid within 14 days.

Hi

I am currently looking on Google Streetview around the hospital and I have managed to locate the Willow annexe but I am having extreme difficulty locating where you parked. If you were driving along the road with the annexe on the left, did you park before it or after? I have located a tree space parking just around the corner where there is a staff pay and display machine which looks to me an ideal spot but if you could pinpoint us to the exact area and take some pictures of where you actually parked and the surroundings, this will help us-a lot!

 

 

I did notice that it is a one way system in parts so I would agree that buses could pass with ease.

 

 

So pictures of the site and the signs nearby and wait for the NTK.

Yellow lines are interpreted by judges to mean what they want them to, red lines have no common usage. What about green lines or purple ones?

 

Wait for the NTK as suggested and chances are they have got that wrong and you are home and dry without any effort on your part.

 

Reasons why you were there never come into it so no need to even mention them as you wont get anywhere as a result

As for causing obstruction, that MUST be one of the written contractual clauses offered by the signage or it doesnt exist. That may get the parking co into hot water if it is the case but agin that is for the future.

they are apparrently relying on clause 4 of ther contract regarding parking to inconvenience others.

well, if the car park is full and I want to park there can I ticket someone else who is alreday there because I am inconvenienced?

 

Also they mangle the english language so you agree to a statement that is prohibitive and that means the only way of forming that contract is to breach it!

We cant tell from what you have posted how the signs refer to the site as a whole and where you were in particular so it may not be applicable at all

the last photo is actually quite telling. Esentially if you have a condition and dont enforce it then it dissapears due to dereliction. As the cluase is subjective the lack of tckets on these vehicles means that that cluase is worthless as it is subjective and thus either unfair or because of their action and inaction confusing. It isnt like a motoring offence where if you get done for speeding you cant say that it is unfair that others didnt get caught, this is about the necessity to enforce a contract or it doesnt exist

Well, your pictures (7 & 8) do not show any obstruction that I could think of. You were not parked on the pathway. The sign you have posted of the entry sign is way too small to form any contract. How is a driver able to stop and read the terms without causing an obstruction??

The road layout is one way only and there is plenty of room to park. Just before where you parked is a staff car park and just after is an area for the lorries. There could be no obstruction, simple as!

 

 

You will get a NTK eventually then I think that you should appeal (your choice of course) but don't name the driver. ONLY say "The Driver". Never say "I" in any respect to you being the driver.
