    • 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.

Nice to see you, Renegade. :) These days we suggest replying to an LBA/LBC with a 'snotty letter'. Tony, you can do a search of CAG for suitable examples.

Ahh. So advice has changed. I need to read up then.  Thanks for the welcome.  Real life took a front seat for a while,  but i thought its time to see whats up.

If its like mine, no DX. its a 1 page letter just saying to contact them.  No pack at all. Basically a threatogram headed as a LBA.   Seems to be bog standard for gladdys now.

 

 

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

with the snotty letter you just send that, none of their I & E pack or other guff, and you could also send a copy to the Fleecer's themselves with the addendum of if they want Gladstones to waste their money on a court case they are unlikely to win that's their problem assuming it is a proper LBC

Don't have the means any more.

I`m a pensioner now and don't use it, this computer is nearly as old as me.

I`m struggling even to find how to reply to the kind people who are trying to help me.

Can I say.. its not an actual pre action letter. Its just a threatogram headed as one.

 

Post it up to make sure  ut from a nosey around the Internet, it's a big standard form threat letter.  Mine is pretty much word for word with dozens of others.

In fact just upload the photos anywhichway, we can do the editing at this end.

 

If a real Letter of Claim has turned up recently it needs to be replied to, otherwise the fleecers will likely do court.

They will do court anyway..it seems they Try and bluff the rk/driver so they don't even defend.

 

Gladdys are known for running off when they've been rumbled. Unless itsforna considerable amount.

 

In this case adding on charges they're not allowed as well as a likely non compliant preaction letter.

 

I'd like to see how far this goes as I'm.in a similar boat but it's an open and shut case.

 

No windscreen ticket, no anpr, no ntk, no communication at all until 5 years later, unlawful signage at the car park amd what looks to be dca charges and sols added on.

 

I'm.mindful that the op has a very similar journey as well

I`ve still got all the paper work and tickets, original's, as you can see from the photos they could have been taken anywhere, no windscreen ticket just a letter 2 weeks after the photos. Surely this is attempted fraud.
