    • 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.

I just got in touch with the prosecutions manager whow as friendly, and asked me to email him that i accepted i was wrong and willing to pay any costs/fines.

 

 

Hiya - How did you find out who the prosecutions manager was and his details to be able to contact him?

Many Thanks

Hiya all,

 

I'd really appreciate some help.

In late October I was caught using my mums freedom pass.

I have been sent a charge sheet only on the 13th of February with 3 options to plead within 21 days.

Either pleading guilty with the reduction of fine so altogether around £150,

to plead guilty and go to court

or not guilty and also go to court to attend a trial.

 

'Contrary to Byelaw 17(1) of the Transport for London Railway Byelaws Made under paragraph 26 of Schedule 11 to the Greater London Authority Act 1999 and confirmed under section 67 of the Transport Act 1962'.

 

I was originally going to go with the quick guilt plea with the small fine but I realized that you automatically acquire a criminal conviction.

 

This is something I simply cannot have on my record at the moment as I am moving to the USA.

I do not mind paying more for the fine as long as somehow I can rid myself of this.

I'm also unsure as to why my instance went straight to court as I am aware other people have gotten warnings and opportunities to pay off their mistake.

 

Is there any way I could contact the head of prosecution or someone to settle this out of court or is it too late for that?

Also, if so, where would I find these contact details or do I call up the court directly?

 

I would also be interested in hearing about any experiences in the length of time this all takes,

as say if I cannot get out of the conviction

- my visa is set to be finalized by April

so if I hold out long enough (ofcourse being aware that fines will increase)

could this be an ok idea to then pay a bit more later,

or will it make my situation even more severe?

 

Many Thanks to any who have taken the time to read.

Sorry, is this along with a guilty plea reply paying the minimum fine?

 

I'd like to settle the same issue out of court and don't know where to get information from of any contact details to pay any money but keep my record clean.

 

Please do let me know if you find out where to send this to as I am in the same situation.

 

Where do we send any apology letters to?

 

I have no address or email of anyone in particular in regards to my case.

 

Many Thanks,

Hiya HB,

 

Could you please tell me who to make an OOC offer to / write letter to? I have been provided with no address or names of prosecutions on my case, do I simply ring the court with my Case number?

 

And considering the letter I received are 3 plea deals, is OOC off the cards? Or is that always an option until court?

 

Thanks so much
