    • Thanks dx. I will ignore until I hear anything further from them.  
    • So, so far we have -   1.  Appalling signage with the £60/£100-ish charge in particular being illegible.  No PP either.   2.  Double dipping, you actually obeyed what was on their silly signs.   3.  No locus standi.  A blank unsigned template is not a letter, let alone a contract.   4.  Double recovery.  As well as £50 legal costs they have invented £60 Unicorn Food Tax.   WS in post 99 is useful for (1), (3) & (4)  https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/417771-cel-pcn-claimform-tenerife-buildings-station-road-south-gosforth-newcastle-ne3-1qd-claim-discontinued/page/4/#comments   WS in post 87 is useful for (1), (3) & (4)  https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/421029-opcdcb-legal-anpr-pcn-paoloc-now-claimform-overstay-st-johns-retail-park-wolves-claim-discontinued/page/4/#comments   WS in post 122 is again useful for (1), (3) & 4  https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/410445-ukcpmgladstones-windscreen-pcn-claimform-vista-centre-salisbury-rd-hounslow-tw4-6jq-claim-dismissed/page/5/#comments   WS in post 58 with comments in post 59 useful for (3) and (4)  https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/422971-excel-anpr-windscreen-pcn-claimform-brewery-st-car-park-chesterfield-on-0207-2018-claim-dismissed/page/3/#comments   I haven't got time to look at the lot, but there are probably useful WSs in the following (scroll down the pages till you come to the WS, which will always be an attachment)   https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/419899-ukcpmgladstones-spycar-pcn-claimform-no-stopping-trinity-park-birm-airport-claim-dismissed/   https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/414313-cpmbw-windscreen-pcns-bw-pap-loc-now-claimform-residential-car-park-the-citrus-building-maderia-road-bournemouth-claim-dismissed-with-costs/   https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/421756-vcs-pcn-claimform-broomfield-developements-broomspring-close-s37xa-claim-dismissed/   https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/429200-excel-pcn-claimform-broomhill-roof-car-park-in-sheffield-claim-dismissed/   https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/419312-vcs-pcn-claimform-no-stopping-in-restricted-zone-bristol-airport-claim-dismissed/    
    • I don't understand why Leave.eu would want to leave and then stay in Europe anyway. I'm sure you don't either, TJ.    
    • Because we've seen the PPCs' antics a thousand times.  They always refuse appeals.  On every occasion they send out the same standard "threatening" letters.  In each case they then involve a third party to pretend the matter has somehow got more serious and the sum owed has increased.  It's got nothing to do with "sticking by their guns", it's what they always do, whether their case is good or if it's pants.   What do you think an unbiased judge would decide when you prove there was no sign at the entrance, just one in the car park at the height of the stratosphere, that the cafè owners had to stick up their own signs to protect their customers, that ages after your visit PCMUK finally installed decent signage, etc., etc? 
    • Thank you Andy    The Court have not confirmed solicitors so we shall proceed as agreed with the DQ by 25 January 2021.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

I ordered a car part from a company called Autodoc.co.uk

 

The part was posted on the 19th of September and was due to be delivered on the 24th of September. As I was going to be out at work I arranged to have the parcel delivered to a local parcel shop so I could collect it later. I used the DPD app on my phone to do this.

 

On the morning of 24th of September I received a notification on my phone from the DPD app that stated I had changed my delivery date to the 30th of September. I used the live chat on the app to ask why this had changed and I was told that a shift manager at the local depot had changed it and that I would get a call back within the hour. I never received a call back. When I got home I telephoned DPD using the app on my phone and was told again I would receive a call back. Again this never happened.

 

I called them back again and explained that I needed the parcel urgently as it was a part for my car. The rep on the phone said he would make sure that my parcel would be delivered the following day to the parcel shop as requested.

 

The next morning I received a notification from the DPD app stating that they could not deliver to the parcel shop as the parcel was oversized. I used the app to rearrange delivery to a friends address for the following day. When I got home DPD had left a card stating they had tried to deliver to my house. This was left 10 minutes before I arrived home.

 

On the morning of Wednesday the 26th of September I contacted DPD on the live chat on the app to ask if they would be able to give me a delivery time. They were unable to do this.

 

My friend waited all day and no parcel arrived. I contacted DPD using the live chat and they then said that it may have been lost.

 

The next morning I telephoned DPD using the app and they admitted that they lost the parcel. I asked them to send me an email confirming this which they did.

 

I have also been in contact with the sender Autodoc who turn out to be based in Germany. They refused to believe that the parcel was lost, even though I forwarded the email from DPD, they told me I had to got to the local depot to collect it.

 

I contacted the bank as Autodoc refused to refund me, Visa have refunded me but told me that Autodoc can refute my claim.

 

Autodoc are being extremely difficult and are telling me to contact DPD, on the other hand DPD are referring me back to Autodoc.

 

In the meantime I have had to order the part from another company who delivered it the following day. My car was off the road longer due to Autodoc and DPD. I would like compensation for the delay.

 

Can anyone give me any help on what I can do?

Not a lot you can do I'm afraid. Your contract was with Autodoc, and it is for them to make a claim against DPD. You have already done the right thing in getting Visa to do a refund, but I doubt very much that you'd get anything more in the way of compensation.

this may not be correct. You may be able to use the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act which confers upon you all the rights that the original contracting party has.

 

This would allow you to sue DPD as a third party. However, it is possible to contract out of the Act and so you need to see the DPD terms and conditions see whether or not they have excluded third-party rights.

 

If that is case and the only other thing you can do would be to sue the supplier and you could do this by using the European small claims process which basically means that you issue the proceedings here. The judgement and then have it transferred to Germany for enforcement. I have no first hand or even second hand experience of this and if you tried it then we will be very interested if you will keep us informed as to how it works. However, try the third parties act first. Let us know.
