At my work we share a depot with Parcelforce and even at Christmas when the place was packed out with Parcels there was nothing that looked anything like the carnage in those photos.
I'm in the depot for about an hour before I start out on my run and I can honestly say that any breakages ect are accidental, I know Parcelforce get a bad name but in the 9 years I've been there I've never seen anything that would make me worry about using them.
I know a good few drivers with Parcelforce and they also have to do between 80 and 100 drops per day, It's the self-employed drivers that struggle to make a decent living working for them.
My daughter sold her car privately at the weekend. There was a small oil leak which became apparent after she advertised it for sale and she reduced the asking price to take account of this, having had a quote. She made the purchasers aware of this. They checked it over, test drove it and were happy to go ahead with the sale and paid by bank transfer. They took all the documentation, including the V5 which she should have retained, saying that they would transfer ownership and save her the trouble - highly dubious I know as it is her responsibility to inform DVLA but without an address it seems impossible.
They then contacted her saying that there was a smell of burning oil and fumes as they drove home and there were other leaks as well (they didn't specify) which they said she knew about (she didn't). There was not and never had been a smell of burning oil while she was driving it. They now are asking for return of their money. She does not have their address and so is unable to transfer ownership with DVLA online which puts her in a very vulnerable position. She sold the car to them in good faith with no attempt to mislead. They are refusing to give their address. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
