    • This article in the Indy has some interesting views on how Brexit has affected the Uk's response to Covid.   https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/coronavirus-lockdown-government-death-toll-boris-johnson-a9551516.html
    • Small attachment to an iPhone that cost £288.00.   I know anything that relates to Apple can be very expensive, but what was the attachment ?   Did you return the attachment product in its original packaging ?   How often do you buy products from Amazon ?   How often do you return products to Amazon ?   Could Amazon believe you are buying products to simply try out for a period, with no intention of keeping the products ?
    • So I make a post and ask you some questions and you then go in and make a response which deals with something completely different and which ignores the questions which I have asked completely. I don't see how we can move forward on that basis
    • Thank you. First of all, this is not chronology so we don't have any sense of the timeline. It's still rather complicated – but maybe when you produce a chronology it will come more into focus. However, there are a few things that we can start to tease out. You say that you accepted £250 in an offer which was intended to reflect distress. Although you say that you accepted this offer mistakenly, it may well be that you have no further rights on this issue because of course it would have been up to you to understand the situation properly before accepting any kind of financial offer. However, it would be useful to understand the reach of this offer and so please could you post up the offer letter by uploading it in PDF format. You say that "high-volume messaging" is not explicitly covered in the terms and conditions – but there may be references to "fair use policy" and it may be an interpretive problem rather than looking for words which specifically match your situation. So it will be helpful to know what words Vodafone were relying upon and also what was the extent of your high-volume messaging. Did they give you any warnings. You say that they referred to terms and conditions which you did not sign. However, it isn't necessary to sign terms and conditions. We would have to understand more about the context – but generally speaking if there is an agreement which refers to terms and conditions from the outset and you then embark upon the agreement and use the services, then all the signs would be that you've accepted the conditions of use. Signed written terms and conditions are generally speaking only required in contracts for property or copyright or shares. You say that the contract was put in your sole name despite the fact that the company name was on the agreement. We don't have a chronology so we don't see how long this went on for and you don't explain why you didn't raise any objections to this – or maybe you did? You say that you have sent Vodafone and Lowell an SAR but "so far" you are waiting for a response. This suggests that you sent the SAR some time ago – but you haven't told us anything about when this might have happened. You are referring to obligations under the Consumer Rights Act but I'm afraid that these obligations refer to contracts between a trader and a consumer – and you are not trading as a consumer so these probably wouldn't apply to you. Finally, you are worried about expressing a claim in legal language. If you begin a small claim then you certainly don't need any legal language – and in fact that kind of approach simply gets in the way. Also, it seems to me that you are gearing up to bring a court claim – which is fine, in my book – but you haven't identified your cause or causes of action and you don't have a plan. I think we need to slow down and have a more careful and methodical look at the situation. Otherwise you're simply going to find yourself in trouble
    • Late to this, sorry - my wife claims contributory ESA and got her P60 about two weeks ago. Now I know she's overpaid on her tax and I'm just waiting for HMRC (the department I currently work for) to figure it out. They owe her about £150.

Parcel2go/Hermes lost my parcel.

Recommended Posts

Hi

I've used Parcel2go to send parcel with Hermes

I didn't buy insurance because I was sending broken tv anyway.

Of course they lost it.

 

I spoke to Parcel2go and they just kept saying that I should buy insurance and that they don't take responsibility.

Also that I can't contact Hermes directly because contract was signed with Parcel2go.

 

Is there anything I can do to receive compensation.

Tv was sold through eBay so I have some kind of proof of value of the item.

 

Thank you for any advice.

Did you declare a value for it?

 

How much are you trying to claim back?

Hi thank you for quick response. I'm pretty sure that I did declare a value while there where asking to purchase insurance. And the value is £200. Parcel2go offer as good will gesture to refund money we paid for service.

Well I hope that you have read enough threads on this forum to understand that the general view is that you should be entitled to claim up to your declared value – regardless of whether there has been insurance.

This of course assumes that the declared value is the correct value.

Also I hope that you have looked at the channel four investigation into Hermes the other day and you have seen that they routinely send loads of stuff off for auction – even though there are labels clearly displayed – and presumably they are pocketing the money along with the auction house commission. I find myself wondering whether there aren't regular buyers who are looking for this kind of stuff and are buying it all at a very low price and then reselling it on eBay.
Clearly your TV is broken so that probably wouldn't happen to it – but on the other hand, it shows the rather cavalier attitude that Hermes have towards their responsibilities and also towards goods belonging to other people. It's really quite disgusting and I'm amazed that the authorities haven't stepped in and taken action against what amounts to recklessly dishonest behaviour.

If you want to get your money back then I think you're going to have to do two things. You are going to have to find out the valuation that you made. In future when you send off these things, you should be more careful about recording the information you provide. Send Parcel2Go an SAR and see what comes back.

Secondly, you are going to have to you get at least one – and preferably two independent estimates of the value of your broken TV. If they all match up then we can help you. It's a shame that you didn't keep a record of the value that you put into Parcel2Go because it could have all happened a lot quicker. Maybe you can have a look at your Parcel2Go account and you might find the details there which will save you load of hassle. If not send off an SAR straightaway.

I completely agree with you about Hermes and that is one of the reasons why I don't want to give up to easy on this matter.

I will try to find record of the value if I don't I will send  SAR and see what happened. 

Is picture of the auction from eBay any form of valuation ??

 

I will put an update here later on.

 

Thank you

If I were you I would send the SAR anyway. It doesn't cost you any money and it will save time to get it going quickly.

In terms of the value of the TV – why don't you tell us about it.

Who are you sending it to? Why was it broken? Had you sold it? Let's have more information

Ok I will send it to them.

Tv was sold on eBay auction won by lady from Salisbury area. It stated that is faulty. It didn't have any physical damage. Tv constantly turn on and off every few seconds.

Okay, presumably you receive payment for it which has now had to have been returned to her. Presumably the payment was made by PayPal.

Make sure you have got screenshots and printouts of everything. We don't want to find down the road that you are missing some important information because you have lost it we didn't bother to get it. Find out what valuation you put in – and once again, in future do this as a matter of course. We shouldn't need to have these delays.
