    • Done! Thanks again. Will update the thread accordingly.
    • Thank you for your message.  I'm concerned that by complaining to the IPC, and escalating the situation, PCM would be even more inclined to cause problems for me and take action to the fullest extent just to make an example of me.  I can still take the above action as a backup plan if PCM decides to go ahead.

    • 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 gane them my name and email/phone number but not the vehicle reg.

 

none of which can hurt you.

there is no ref no. specific to you on the PN you got so only your name could ever be matched by them to any subsequent incident once they get car details from the reg number the spycar took when issuing the PN back from the DVLA..> don't worry about it . POFA is still OK>

 

as for reverse or not trespass, i don't think there has ever been a court case upon that issue. its just a frightener to make people cough up.

I have a somewhat unique name! I can guarantee I will be the only person with that name getting this. 

 

 

I have read of the case VCS vs Ibbotson which seems similar - Leaving the property.

 

Once I receive the first angry red letter - Is it a good idea to write them explaining their lack of signings makes me not liable and showing them photos? or does this wait?

no you never reply until/unless you get a letter of claim.

That letter to them revealed that you were the driver-something that you should not do. Now they know you are the driver you lose the protection of PoFA so they can go ahead and sue you as the driver. it isn't fatal but it makes it easier for them to win in court should it get that far.

if you are the registered keeper as well as the driver on that day, then they may marry up your query and the keeper's name. If you are not the registered keeper then you might be ok. In future if you contact any of these parking crooks do not use "I" say the driver  so you do not risk losing the PoFA protection.

what you put in the contact box is immaterial, there is no ref no on the windscreen PN, there are no times and dates when it was put there.

they can't marry anything up nor even if they could does it remove protection under POFA2012.

The communication I sent them via the contact us slip:

 

'I was parked in xxxxxxxxxx yesterday. I understand there is a time limit and I did not exceed it. Received a privacy notice and have no clue why.'
