    • 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.

Hello, Me again! :roll:

 

I received a charge notice for parking on their clients property for a

 

CHARGE NOTICE from Highview Parking, Bradfield Road Car Park, Sheffield S6 2BW

Date: 18.12.18

Time: 19:47

Time left: 22:27

Duration: 2hrs 40 mins

 

I had been for a meal at the Italian restaurant for my managers retirement hence the late time of arrival. The car park was empty and so presumed it would have exceeded the time period with it being unsociable hours.

 

Having spoken with friends and family, I decided to ignore the first letter but have received a second one today to state the charge is now £85 instead of the reduced amount of £50. and if not recieved within 14 days an initial debt recovery charge of £40 will be incurred????

 

Can I please have advice on what to do next as I don't know how best to go about these sort of things- I do think it is disgusting and the owners should not be allowed to charge these ridiculous amounts.

 

I am concerned that I will get taken to court etc???

 

Please help??

 

Many thanks in advance

It doesn't state the maximum time permitted on the letter? I haven't done anything as of yet- should I contact the restaurant? What's PPC off? (Sorry I have no idea about the charge notices)

 

Many Thanks for you help so far by the way! :roll:

Also, have a good read of the private parking forums. Youll soon get an idea for how these companies work.

well, this isnt an NTK as they have missed out a key phrase so no liability is created at all as they dont say who the creditor is. They also make an unlawful demand of £2.50 admin fee so again not a lawful invoice. They dont provide a service address for documents so not a lawful invoice.

 

3 errors that will cost them dearly in the long run.

This also suggests that they will be just as slapdash with their signage that offers the contract in the first place such as not bothering with planning permission for their cameras and signs,

 

the signs are probably too poorly worded and sited to offer a contract etc. It would be good if you can get some pictures of the entrance to the land from the public highway and also of the signs so we can see what is what

 

. If there are no signs at the entrance from the proper road then we need to know as that will be their undoing even if they have 100 large illuminated signs elsewhere.

Here are two pictures I took, of the signage - The second image is the first sign you see as you enter and isn't very big, it wasn't let up when i arrived at around 7:45pm it was pitch black - hence me presuming that because it was unsociable hours that it wouldn't be in effect :x

all the businesses there will be tenants and mightily peed off that their landlord is killing their business by bringing in these cowboys and allowing them to dictate the terms their customers have to abide to.

 

Get on to the restaurant and to any shop there that you may have even looked in the window of and complain about this.

they may not have the authority to cancel but they sue as hell will be telling the agent or LL that they are losing business because of these bandits.

 

What may well happen behind the scenes is they ask for a rent reduction and that may get the LL to be rid of the parking co or at least change their terms.

Even though this wont get your ticket cancelled the more complaints the better it is in the long run as they will get the boot when they cost the LL enough money

Would the resteraunt even have any power to do so?

I haven’t contacted them no.

I’m debating this.

 

I have received a third letter today from them.

The charge has gone from £50 early fine to £100 and now £125 with threaten of debt collectors.

They have also mentioned in red about my credit rating may be affected.

 

I’m honestly disgusted and don’t know what to do about it

- I don’t want to pay it under principal of me parking there in unsociable hours for one!!

Please see attached letter from today

 

Update: I have contacted the resteraunt and he says he has had a few enquiries regarding this matter.

His is more than happy to write a statement to say that I was in the resteraunt etc.

 

He did also state that he is appalled and has written to the council and MP

- and that people have paid and also ignored the letters.

Aghhhh ....?!?!?

Dont worry. They cant add any of those charges. Theyre trying to scare you. They certainly cannot touch your credit file until they have a CCJ and y ou dont pay it within 28 days. That will NEVER happen.

 

Relax.

I have spoken to the business and they said that they would verify I was there if needed but if I did that Highview would then have my details and they will come back to say that I still over exceeded the stated time limit even though it was Poorly lit to which is I presumed it wouldn’t be implimented during unsociable hours

coo, they have adjusted their unicorn food tax tariff. that must be due to a no deal brexit.

 

if you had read any of the thousands of similar posted letters you would know that you just igniore this. it is also too late to waoory about asking the restaurant for help. by the way, highview already have your details and that is why they are writing to you. The tenants at the site have the ability to moan like hell at their landlord for ruining their trade but if you dotn force them to complain to teh landlord they wont do anything as they arent in the firing line. you should ahve made thej part of the problem if they werent willing to be part of the solution

I presumed it would be to ignore it. I posted in here because of the protection of freedoms act 2012 has been stated so it has worried me a little as to what to do next about it?! 

I contacted the restaurant a while ago to complain and he said that he’d complained numerous amounts of times previously and that he would back me up if needed. 

How does Highview have my details?  I haven’t acknowledged any form of letter from them?!! 

Thanks
