    • Sorry the picture is not clear re boundary. Is it just the asphalt of a few inches before the white cable or the whole asphalt shown in the picture ?
    • These dates stated are within last 6 years. So what is the challenge here. Are the dates/amounts wrong ?   "for the period 01/04/2014 to 08/07/2015. The claimant claims interest under section 69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at the rate of 8% a year  from 08/07/2015 to 11/06/2019 on £304 and also interest at the same rate up to the date of the judgment or earlier payment at a daily rate of £0.21"
    • I repeat, the seller has the right under the CRA to repair. That is exactly what they have offered.   The OP doesn’t even know what the fault is, you cannot simply reject if a light has appeared. OP is being completely unreasonable.   The CRA is designed to be fair to both parties, it is not one sided.         
    • I only got the car 3 weeks ago, had the car serviced as it was coming up to the service date and was advised by the garage that the Tyres were illegal so I think it’s cut and dry really. The fact is I was allowed to drive a car off the forecourt with 2 bald tyres and I was told by dealer the car had been checked and surely Tyres should have been part of the check.
    • Less than 100 miles not enough miles or time to wear the Tyres enough according to the garage. I’m more angry I could have got up to a £5000 fine and 6 points, what would the dealership responsibilities be then?

    • 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....

Samsonite suitcase broken after first use, need to know what my rights are regarding replacement

Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

This is my first post as I'm currently having issues with Samsonite and a suitcase I bought.

 

I bought a small cabin bag size suitcase from a genuine Samsonite outlet store in York during the Black Friday sales at the end of November. It cost £41 which I knew was really cheap for Samsonite as I already have a couple of their cases.

 

I used the case for the first time during a trip to London in mid January, during which time the retractable handle broke while waking along a train platform (so much fun!). I took the case back to the Samsonite store where I purchased it, and was told it would have to be sent away for repair as it was more than 6 weeks since I bought it.

 

I've since received a voicemail from the store advising that the case could not be repaired, and to visit them to discuss.

 

I'd really like to know what my rights are before I travel to the store (which is 90mins from where I live, so I need to be prepared), as to what I can get as a replacement.

 

I do not want store credit or my money back, as I know I won't be able to buy a replacement suitcase without putting a lot more money towards it. As far as I can see the suitcase wasn't fit for purpose, and I'd like a replacement at no cost to me, but is this what I'm entitled to?

 

Any help would be much appreciated so I can be prepared to fight my corner.

 

Thanks

Claire

It's less than six months old so you have certain rights under the consumer rights act.

 

If a defect appears within six months then you have to give the seller an opportunity to carry out a repair and if that repair fails then you are entitled to a refund or a replacement – at your choice.

 

In addition to that I would say that you should be entitled to recover any losses so if you have necessarily incurred costs of travelling to the retailer to return it – particularly because if that's what they have told you to do (and I hope you have that in writing) then you should be able to recover the cost of the round voyage.

 

I would say that 7 to 10 days is a reasonable time to expect it to be repaired. You ask if you are entitled to a replacement at no cost to you? – The answer is yes as long as they have had an opportunity to affect a repair. – Plus you losses of course.

I thought the choice of refund or replacement was the retailers, not the consumers.
