What do you mean by first oppurtunity. I literally can request judgment now as i can see the tab and its clickable. 
when you say oppurtunity donyou mean that the request judgment button only shows when the 14 days have passed?

I mean the request judgement button is always there your comment to keep an eye and do it when i get opportunity seems to make me think that request judgement button only appears when its a right time as in my case i have always been seeing that button. 
my question is how do i know its a right time or the opportunity as you said. 
the issue claim says they have untill 11 of aug to respond , should i hit judgment at midnight today ?

Click the button. If it allows you to apply for judgement then continue. If it doesn't let you then you know that you'll have to wait and come back and check again.

I have requested judgement now. What are my chances of getting money. Seems like parcel2 go are intentionally ignoring my claim. What happens if after the judgment they still don't pay. What will be my further actions ?

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

If you have managed to apply for the judgement against them then that is highly unusual because they very rarely miss the deadline.

They may suddenly wake up and file the defence and although you have applied for the judgement, it has not yet been granted so there is a tiny possibility that their defence will be filed before your judgement is given.

However, once you get your judgement then you can be certain that you will get all your money but the next step will be immediately to apply for a warrant of execution. This will cost you £50 which you will get back.

Don't forget you are dealing with a reasonably reputable company here that won't try to cause problems about enforcement of the judgement. It's not like dealing with dodgy car dealers.

Keep an eye on the money claim website and the moment it allows you to apply for a warrant – do it and let us know.

Just an update i called at MCol helpline, and asked as i have requested judgement when should i expect to be processed and they told me that p2go has files their aos and i will get it in post. They told me they submitted it today after i requested judgment.

ta-da..told ya. no you wont get their AOS in the post, nothing to post you. 

 

i doubt they'll miss defence filing date now (day 33) 

 

so as most of the other threads here.. n180 next for you..agree to mediation and they should settle for the full amount if you stand your ground to avoid court judgement.

It's been sometime since we had from you. Could you just bullet point itemise the salient points in their defence.

In terms of the requirement for flexibility – we always suggest that you stand your ground. You can make it clear to the mediator that the advantage them is that they avoid getting a judgement and incurring additional costs.

But maybe you can just give us a quick resume of what has happened – and I mean Quick.

By the way how long ago were you given this appointment?

I had been away as i didnt have any update i had been only waiting for the mediation appointment to be given which is i think processed bit delayed due to their workload. I have been given the appointment last week. 
please see below their defence .

Okay so I see that the principal issue is about insurance.

In that case read the threads very carefully about what we have to say about the insurance requirement and how unfair it is that you should be required to protect Hermes against their own negligence or the criminality of their employees.

Point out that this was a laptop computer and you are well aware that instances of laptop computers disappearing are pretty common with Hermes and that the likelihood is that it was stolen. You will not be responsible for the criminality of their employees. It is for Hermes either to review their employment policies or to insure themselves.
If you read up on the pinned topics you will find that have set out a nine or 10 point explanation of why their insurance requirement is unfair.

You can tell the mediator that you will be inviting the judge to exercise his or her duty under the consumer rights act to examine the entirety of the Hermes contract and to decide whether the terms are fair or unfair.
You can also point out to the mediator that if the judge finds against them that it will put a coach and horses through their entire rip-off insurance scheme and that not only will they not be able to depend upon in future but they will also have to go back and compensate all the people who have accepted their position and have not understood that the insurance is unfair.
Point out the mediator as well that once you get a judgement in your favour as you surely will – that this will impact the whole of the courier industry – and Hermes will be even more despised by the competitors than they already are.
In terms of your flexibility – tell the mediator that if Hermes does the sensible thing and pays you out then it won't go to court, they won't get a judgement against them, and they will be up to carry on with their rip-off insurance policy as usual and deprive other more innocent and less well-informed people of the compensation to which they are entitled.

Tell the mediator that that is the benefit to Hermes and that you won't back down – not even a penny.

Read the mediation stories on this forum. You will find that Hermes will probably come to you with their £100 expiration payment. When you refuse that, they will come back to you with a further offer and they will try to avoid paying the cost of the action.

Tell the mediator that it is Hermes which had forced this action to occur and therefore you are not going to pay.

If Hermes comes back and says right okay they are going to court – then don't worry. Go to court. We will help you – although they will probably settle before court anyway.

Stand your ground. It's a reasonable amount of cash but it's not a massive amount so I would suggest simply just go for it.

It's exactly the same story. Exactly the same principle. Exactly the same arguments. We don't know whether they are more bullish than Hermes – but you should approach it in exactly the same way.
