    • If you didn't specifically claim interest in your particulars of claim then you won't be able to claim it
    • I couldn't agree more Maffster. I really hate when I read the sanctimonious bullshine from the likes of the BPA and the IPC when trying to justify the existence of their industry. This is from the new IPC Code of practice "This updated Code of Practice for members of the International Parking Community (the IPC), the parking trade body that drives up standards across our industry, will create a better parking experience for the law and rule-abiding majority of those who use our members’ car parks, whilst ensuring that those who flout the rules are encouraged to change their behaviour." Do they really believe that they are driving up standards.across their Industry????? They are the depository for some of the biggest rogues . Birds of a feather spring to mind. Hot off the Press. Apparently Excel has just switch ed from BPA to IPC. Above the headline there is a statement from BPA. BPA says appeals service is independent and scrutinised.   You would think that it would be something that was welcomed by an honest, transparent car park company........

    • Essentially there are organisations that, despite the tightening of legislative practice, remain committed to extracting money as they always have done - by way of underhand, strong arm tactics.  My neighbour paid up, she was sure she would end up paying more, and it was the narrative that caused her to panic and pay up. Of the others that I’m aware of, they’ve done the same. Some have appealed, lost, paid, others just paid, and from what I can tell it’s the surface seriousness of the appearance of the NTK. Most of the NTK’s have been related to overstaying, returning twice within, or overnights when none have, and they’ve had proof they didn’t contravene but they ended up paying out of fear of the original sum increasing. I’m wondering if there’s a higher authority to turn to, one that will investigate the practice of such organisations. The retail stores on the site don’t, or won’t, get involved, it’s nothing to do with them, the car park is managed privately etc etc.  My neighbour is a typical, hard working single parent, no spare money, everything’s stretched, she felt it when she paid up. She said it was the unfairness of it that stung more than anything because she paid a fine for a thing she didn’t do, Excel took her money regardless of their deception and funky ANPR wizardry.

    • 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.

in the meantime - do i or do i not agree to sign up to their solicitors?

 

 

 

I would, you have 2 issues here, one is the misinformation complaint from Hastings, the other is you have signed (I'm assuming signed) a credit agreement to go into hire, part of the agreement will be about co-operating or bear the costs - any complaint about that is against the hire company or the introducer. 

 

Chances are this will never go to court, both sides have a massive amount to loose by allowing this to court, not just about the financials of this claim, but precidents get set which can upset what is a pretty fine balance for the majority of claims that go through.
