    • @fkofilee thanks that’s definitely what I intend to do 😁. I Would just like to know if there is any course of action to stop them from spamming me with letters/emails in the future?   @dx100uk I know you are just trying to help however I think you have misunderstood. I have only dealt with them via post. They replied to me via email which I assume they have from when I signed up for the gym originally, which is why I stated I had yet to receive any further postal communication. I hope that clears up any confusion.
    • Hello i was hoping someone might be able to give me some advice please. It’s a bit complicated, but I’ve ended up with a claim form and I’m terrified.  I moved house two years ago. At my old address I was with npower. I lived there for 3 years. We had some financial issues and we were in arrears with npower, but we also were making some payments to them, as agreed with them. When we moved, I had health issues (problematic pregnancy)  and was in hospital a bit and I don’t straight away try to resolve the npower issues. I heard no more from them u til just over a year ago when I got a letter from William chapman solicitors, it was demanding over £4000 from us for npower. They said they’d sent me an incoming and outgoing letter which I hadn’t received, so they emailed me a copy, I sent it back to them and heard no more from them and didn’t chase them. I then received a letter before action a few weeks ago and I now have a claim form from them, dated 14th May. I don’t dispute that I owe npower some money, but I have no idea how the bill can possibly be as high as they’re saying. Even if I hadn’t paid at all for three years that would still be a high bill, but we did pay, even though I know there were arrears. I don’t know how to proceed at all. I can’t afford to pay them over £5000 which they now have the bill at, and I also can’t afford to get a ccj. I’d like to come up with a payment plan but they didn’t respond last time I sent them one. I’d really appreciate any advice please!

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

Parcel2go Hermès Lost/Damaged Item ***Won***

Recommended Posts

On the 1st October i purchased a window from a ebay seller, due to the large distance he was from myself (350 miles) i arrange a courier to have the item collect, which the seller was happy with.

 

The courier i decided to use was Parcel2Go (hermes light and large service), due to the high value of the item £500 i decide to pay a extra £14 to cover the £500.The collection was arranged for the 8th Oct but the collection never took place, i contact Parcel2Go which is a joke as they only appeat to allow a chat system, i was told they would rebook it for the 10th. This collection also failed and was told driver did not have van big enough :???: , the nest collection was successfull and tracking got to around the 17th then stopped on the web site.

 

I was now getting most concerned i decided to ring hermes direct, i got a better customer service and was told the item has been damaged and will be sent back to the sender, which of course is the ebay seller. I have contacted him and he has not seen any sign of it as of today.

 

I have now had enough of waiting, do i have the right to put in a claim ? i noticed that parcel2go mention claims need to be put in 28 days from order.

 

Any advice much appreciated.

I would put a claim in now, for the full value of the item up to the £500 that you have paid the extra insurance for.

As you've used parcel2go your claim will be with them and they will need to liase with hermes and sort it out. Even if they do find the item it's no longer usable if damaged so they should compensate you.

You are not alone in this, when I've tried to use parcel2go in the past for a collection nobody showed up either. And hermes are terrible for large or delicate items. Almost every large item I've ever had shipped with them was either returned to sender as damaged, or lost completely.

Claim letter emailed to parcel2Go claims department, will now await there response, interestingly i got a email from hermes as follows:

 

 

Response By E-mail (Navita Gwalani) (25/10/2018 06.10 AM)

Dear Sir,

 

Regarding parcel number: 89103xxxxxxxxxxx and sorry for the delay in response.

 

Thank you for contacting myHermes.

 

I'm sorry to see your parcels tracking hasn't updated since 18/10/2018 . The last tracking point was at the Hub but as millions of parcels go through the Hub a week, we can't arrange a specific sweep for your item. Weekly sweeps are carried out at the Hub so any parcel that is located is then scanned back in for delivery straight away.

 

Just keep an eye on the tracking as we allow 5 days to make sure there has been enough time for it to be found and scanned back and as it has been more then 5 days we deem the parcel lost.As you have booked the parcel with Parcel2Go please contact them for further assistance on refund.

 

 

Kind regards,

 

 

Navita Gwalani

Oh dear. You have used Parcel2Go. Once it is declared lost or damaged, all you will get back is the price you paid for the shipping as nearly everything sent by courier isn't covered by their restricted items list such as items containing glass.

 

 

Other courier companies are the same. They will take your money and any extras to cover loss/damage and when you make a claim, they refer back to their terms and refuse to pay out.

 

 

All is not lost. Parcel2Go accepted your parcel and you paid for the extra insurance so if they try to fob you off, you sue them.

 

 

If you read other threads on here, you will see what has happened in other cases.

Its a joke they can get away with this sort of thing, when you book the collection online you have to put the contents into one of the boxes which appears to indicate if its covered, i just run a test on it and a windows appeared to be covered for loss, knife being prohibited.

Sorry to hear you problem.

 

I had a similar experience with them and they kept fobbing me off.

 

Spoke to trading standards and sent them one last letter to get it sorted, when they didn't reply I started legal proceedings and they paid up.

 

They will try and put barriers in your way hoping you will give up.

 

Good luck and hope you get the result you want

Got the response we all expected :-x

 

 

 

Unfortunately your enquiry has been rejected.

 

Reason

 

We’re very sorry to let you know that we were unable to approve your claim in this particular instance.

During the booking process, we asked you to check your item against the list of items we’re unable to compensate for on our website.

Unfortunately, the item you decided to send appears on our prohibited items and no-compensation list, which means we’re unable to compensate you for damages to this item.

 

 

Time to start court proceedings i guess.

Letter Before Action first. Give them 14 days to pay up then when they ignore this, on the 15th day file papers on the MCOL site. You can register with the site in advance.

 

 

Companies like P2G don't want their terms and conditions questioned by a judge and they may just decide to settle. This has happened previously in other cases.

14 days now passed, and no response from letter before action, i am now going to submit a claim on MCOL, have included my claim wording, should i also tick the box for include detailed particulars to defendant, or is the below enough ?

 

 

The claimant paid the defendant £38.00 pounds on 1st October 2018 to carry out the collection and delivery of a Sash Window valued at £500.00 to my UK address. The cost of the delivery was £24.00. The claimant also paid £14.00 to the defendants as an insurance cover to protect themselves against the possible breach of their contract by the defendant.

The defendants have lost the parcel and have admitted this. Despite this, they refuse to reimburse the claimant for the value of the parcel and cost of delivery.

The claimant seeks £500.00 being the value of the lost Sash Window plus £38.00 for the insurance cover which the claimant now understands is unfair because the defendants were obligated to carry out the contract satisfactorily in any event and are responsible for losses incurred by their breach.

 

Total: £538.00

 

Thanks

HI

I will alert Bankfodder to this case. He 'loves' P2G :lol:

 

I am pretty useless at court claims but to me it seems a reasonable POC

Sorry, I have only just seen this.

 

It all looks great of course and AndyOrch has signed it off. However, have you issued it? I would also have claimed for the insurance money as well.

 

It's absurd to be required to pay insurance simply to protect yourself against somebody not carrying out their side of the contract. That's what the purchase price is for. You pay for a service to be done and to be complete and to be satisfactory. If there is a breach of contract then the purchase price is the consideration for the contract properly executed and if they fail to do so then they are liable. Otherwise they are saying – pay us the money and we will deliver your item but we won't be liable for breaches unless you pay us even more.

 

By not claiming for the insurance premium as well, you are effectively validating the absurd culture that seems to have developed within the delivery industry.

 

If you have issued the papers then fine – no problem. However, – and this is just my personal bugbear – I would advise you to claim back the insurance money as well if the papers have not yet been issued.

Received the following email from P2G.

 

Good Afternoon Paul,

 

I am contacting you regarding the above Court proceedings.

 

Firstly, please allow me to apologise for the problems caused when using our services.

 

I would like to settle this for the full amount on the Court Papers which is £598.00.

 

In order to settle the said amount can you please provide me with your sort code and account number, I will then set up a manual payment with our accounts department.

 

Once the payment has been received can you then file a notice with the Court that this matter has been settled and no further action is needed.

 

 

Thank you for your cooperation.

 

 

Kindest Regards

Another one bites the dust. I assume it must be financially viable for P2G to pay out when they are challenged where most people will just accept their word for it when the case is rejected.

It is people like you who challenge them and they will pay out to avoid court action.

 

Well done
