Thanks for this, ive attached a pdf of my draft. Left out my name and the date as ill add them in when needed Not the best at english so any adjustments please let me know Letter of Claim.pdf

I've made a few edits. Also I notice that you haven't included the delivery costs. You should include those and amend the letter of claim to reflect that. We have to be careful about the wor

just seen it, its excellent, let them know they can't get away with this. Really intrigued as to what they have to say about themselves

Hi, back earlier than the 14 days.

Hermes got back to me, got sent an email from what im presuming to be a senior member of their team. 

They've stated they can't refund more than £300 and that's about it. Ive attached the email in pdf format 

I would assume that this voids the 14 day wait and we can now proceed forward?

I thought I would modify the wording of the particulars to reflect the partial refund, please let me know if there is anything I need to amend

 

Breach of contract and/or Conversion, unfair
trading the claimant used the defendant's
delivery service reference number
6200157247452489 to send a parcel containing
a laptop computer value £719.10 to a UK
address. The defendants damaged the parcel
and then destroyed it with no warning to the
claimant and without authority. The
defendant's actions are Unfair Trading within
the meaning of the Contract Protection of
Unfair Trading Act 2008. The defendant
partially reimbursed to the value of £300,
as per insurance taken out by the claimant.
The defendant refuses to reimburse any
further. The claimant seeks £519.10, the
remaining value of the laptop plus a maximum
of £100 damages for conversion in the
discretion of the court: total £519.10 – plus
costs

That's fine but you haven't actually responded as to whether or not you have received the £300 reimbursement.

I don't think you should refer to the insurance at all. There is a suggestion that you accept the validity of the insurance and of course apart from the fact that the insurance requirement is unfair, your claim is predicated on the fact that their insurance requirement is unenforceable.

That’s fair enough, thanks for the advice again

 is there anything else? should I wait for the 2 week period to expire or does the fact that they got back to me before then void that and allow me to proceed?

I think it would be best to wait for the expiry of the 14 days. There's not long to go anyway. Are you completely ready to click off on day 15?

Just a quick update, the 14 day period expired today and still heard nothing, so I have gone and submitted the claim on money claims. Hopefully this will stir up a positive result. I will keep everyone posted on any updates. Again, thanks for all the advice

Another quick update, got a letter today saying Hermes intend to defend themselves. I have a quick question too, does this mean that this is going to go to a hearing, because from reading stories on subreddits it seems unlikely that they would take this to court?

Please will you read the Hermes stories on the sub- forum. You will have all these answers to very basic questions and it's very important that you understand the way forward.

I think we've asked you often to read the stories – but clearly you still haven't.

I just had a read of the laptop one, and they did actually file the acknowledgement of service towards the end of the 14 days, and this letter came this morning. So am I to understand that towards the end of the next 14 days (ie, around the 29th) they will file the defence and suggest mediation.

I do understand your point and I assure you that I understand the importance of being self sufficient and not being spoon fed per se, so forgive me for that

But you seem to be saying that you only read one Hermes story. I keep on saying that you should read the stories – plural.

If you want to succeed on this and be confident about what you are doing – then you are going to have to put the time in and do the reading.

it's your case, you are the claimant, YOU decide if it goes to a hearing or not or mediation or not, nothing to do with the defendant.

hello again, been a while

Quick update, just received Hermes's defence and the form to send to the court for mediation etc. 

Going to post off the form tomorrow to the court. The notice of allocation to the small claims track form states to send it to the court, and also serve copies on all other parties. Am I to also send a copy of this to hermes?

Thanks in advance

If u need to see anything do let me know

Yes. That means that you send a copy to Hermes as well.

Monitor this thread for a fuller reply tomorrow but make sure you start reading up the mediation summaries that are on this subforum

sounds good, ill hold off on sending the form until your reply tomorrow. Shall I upload the defence that hermes put forward, if that's something you would like to have a look at tomorrow? 

 

Additionally, im concerned about something hermes mentioned. It seems due to my own human error I stated the value when purchasing the postage all those months ago as £720, rather than the true value of £719.10. I have no idea how I did this, bit of an idiotic mistake on my part admittedly. Their exact wording was that I have been put to strict proof as to the value of the item

Send the form now. I have nothing more to say about that.

Well it seems to be their standard defence. I have to say that the images which you post up are more than poor quality – they're sloppy and given the amount of support we give you, I would have thought it would only be reasonable for you to do a decent job. You can get scanner for about 70 quid and you'll have it for years.
 

The only difficulty with your case will be that you to pay an insurance for £300 and I can imagine that they may try to capitalise on that idea and say that this means that you accepted that was the limit of the liability.

Make sure you're familiar with all the arguments in the Hermes stories and wait for the DQ.

Let us know when you get it.

Buy yourself a scanner. Everybody will be better off with it
