Hi there,

After reading a fair few of your threads I believe you may be able to help me...

  • Returned a parcel I originally brought from a clothing brand "Solace London" as they do not offer a return service
  • Posted With Evri via their website in 15th April 2023 using their "next day service"
  • Did not pay extra insurance
  • Can not remember how much I entered as the value of parcel, and can't seem no way to find this on my Evri account
  • Parcel got stuck at "On its Way" on 18th April 2023 and remained at this status
  • 16th May I logged a problem issue with Evri
  • 17th May received automated email with a link to a claims form, however the link was corrupt and didn't direct me anywhere 
  • 17th May I replied back stating it didn't work - heard nothing back
  • 21st May reached out to Kerri Cooper who was listed as a senior exec on an online forum
  • 22nd May I get a reply from a PA and also a telephone call, due to the amount of the parcel they were going to organise a search of the depot as that was the location it was last tracked, they requested I provided items inside and also a description of the parcel exterior which I luckily had a photo of.
  • 24th May PA replied to confirm parcel was not found at depot and the parcel was now deemed to be missing but they would refund me £20 + the postage I originally made (how generous), I did not accept this however it has been refunded to my account 
  • 24th May I replied back to PA explaining how disappointed I was and stressed due to the value 
  • 25th May PA replied back explaining nothing they could do and £20 was all they were offering me, he also included the terms within the email 

 

Based on the above do you think I have a stance to submit a letter of claim and if so should I sent this directly back to the PA who has been fairly responsive throughout please?

Appreciate any help on this - thanks!

It is important to know how much you declared as the value of the parcel.

I  suggest that you send EVRi an SAR.

This will delay matters but it is essential that you know how much you are claiming for.

Yes you may as well send the letter of complaint. In the letter of complaint referred to the fact that you have sent them a subject access request and you are still waiting for the result of that as well.

Remind them that they have a statutory duty to comply

I have just had a reply from them regarding the value amount. I entered £999 which is the maximum the form allows you to enter. I believe I remember trying to enter more and the form presenting me with an error which on hindsight I should of took my business elsewhere at this point.

Will this mean I will only ever be able to claim back £999 instead of the £2200 of lost goods please?

You can certainly try and claiming for £2200 – and EVRi are so stupid that they might eventually offer you that much at mediation if you stick your heels in. However, there is a possibility that somebody who knows what they are doing may conduct the mediation in which case they will only offer you the amount that you declared and if it went to court it is quite likely that although you would win, this is the amount which would be awarded.

If you claim for £2200, your claim fee will be much more expensive than if you claim for £999 and even if you won, probably the best that you could expect would be the fees which would have been charged for the lower value claim – £999.

You are going to have to decide yourself.
I hope you won't mind too much when I say that you aren't handling this very well. First of all you seem to have no idea of how much you actually valued the item for even though it was a very valuable item – and then we discovered that you undervalued it.

As I say, you can claim for the higher amounts. We will support you and we will be pleased if you win it but - A hae ma doots.

Thanks for coming back to me.

Unfortunately I post a large amount of parcels therefore it hard to keep track of the values I input.

I sent my letter of complaint and have received correspondence back from them with the normal spiel they have sent/advised me before.

I will now proceed with my letter claim and post here for your sign off if all ok please?

As you mentioned above the fees will vary if I decide to go for the £999 or £2200, is there anywhere/anyway for me to find out what the difference would be to help me make my decision please?

Search on court fees on the County Court website. You will need to find the claim fee and also the hearing fee.

I would suggest that you find a way of recording all the information you give in your parcel delivery arrangements in future

Dear Sir/Madam,

LETTER OF CLAIM

PARCEL REFERENCE NUMBER REFERENCE: C00*********

On 15th April 2023 I used your service to send a parcel under the above reference number using Evri’s next day delivery service. The parcel never arrived at its destination.

Following my enquiries via email with Evri’s Executive Office, it has been confirmed that the parcel cannot be located since it was last scanned at Evri’s sorting hub on 18th April 2023

Evri’s delivery service was purchased and your service was not met therefore I am pursuing yourselves as I am entitled to do under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties Act 1999). Evri cannot locate the parcel at its own sorting hub, even after a thorough search was carried out by management, this demonstrates that it has not managed the delivery of my parcel with reasonable care and skill while in possession of the parcel.

Value of item = £2200

Total loss to me (amount of claim) = £2200 + any applicable Interest

In emails with Evri’s Executive Office, I have requested reimbursement for the full amount above, which Evri has so far failed to reimburse, they have only reimbursed me the original postage amount of £5.88

I therefore intend to issue proceedings against you in the county court without further notice unless you reimburse me the above amount in full within 14 days from the date of this letter.

Sincerely,
*********

No. Out of the 14 days refer to the letter of claim, you go on to issue a claim.

That means you should be issue your claim on about Tuesday, if the letter of claim was sent on 10 July.

This should be fully prepared and ready to go by now.

What date did you send the letter of claim?

Have you register with the County Court MoneyClaim website?

Have you drafted your particulars of claim? – So if so I think we should see it before you click it off.

Yes, that is exactly what I mean by the particulars of claim.

I hope you won't mind me saying, but you have a fair amount of money at stake here. We don't get the impression that you are taking it very seriously. You are allowing long periods of time to elapse before each step. You have only just now sent off a letter of claim which was ready to go and should have been sent almost 2 weeks ago – and now it is clear from the questions that you are asking that you really haven't done any reading.

Now that you sent off the letter of claim I would suggest that you start taking the matter seriously and begin doing some solid reading so that you understand what you're doing. We will help you and of course you will win – everybody does – but this is a self-help forum and you have to take possibility yourself.

If as you say you send off a large number of parcels and it is only a matter of time before this kind of thing will happen again and what you learn in this case we help you to deal with similar situations in the future.

Start doing the reading. Read a lot. There are lots of examples of particulars of claim on this sub- forum. Post a draft in a few days and we will have a look. Make sure you understand your way around the MoneyClaim website and make sure you understand the arguments you will be using to support your claim.

We can only do so much for you. We aren't charging you £300 an hour which is what you would pay commercially. We are helping you completely free but it is you who stands to benefit financially so you should take at least 50% of the effort with us – and probably a lot more.

Thanks for your thorough response I do appreciate the efforts the organisers go to in this forum in their own time.

I am currently receiving treatment which has caused a delay in me sending this off and unfortunately that has to take priority.

I have done a fair amount of reading however the process is confusing especially for someone who does not have experience in this and experience with the terminology. 

Because I have already submitted my claim on MoneyClaim website, am I able to submit a particulars form (N1) with more detail, as I was fairly brief on the moneyclaim form although my series of events is fairly straight forward I am not sure this would be required?

I hope you are able to put up with some criticism in this post.

On July 10 we helped you prepare a letter of claim which specifically outlined various bits of information including a tracking number and made it clear that if they did not reimburse you you would be issuing the claim 14 days after the date of the letter.

I did understand that you didn't send a letter but in fact you hung onto it and eventually sent it yesterday – 22 July.

So on 22 July – a Saturday – you sent a letter of claim giving them 14 days to refund you or else you would start legal action. Then today, you file a legal action which is going to be issued tomorrow Monday.
In other words, you sent the letter of claim and you gave them less than 24 hours to respond to it over a weekend when no one is particularly working – and then you went and issued the claim.

Please do correct me if I have misunderstood anything. However I notice on the claim forms you have posted it actually says that you sent the letter of claim on 22 July.

Did you send the letter of claim by email or by post? If you send it by email then they will have it on Monday morning. I expect they will have the court papers on Wednesday or Thursday.
If you sent the letter of claim by post then I expect that they will receive it by Tuesday or Wednesday – about the same time that they receive the court papers.

Once again, please do put me right if there is something I have misunderstood.

Apart from anything else there is a pre-action protocol which absolutely requires that a claimant gives at least 14 days notice to a potential defendant before issuing the claim.
If everything I understand here is correct then you have breached the pre-action protocol – and that is a fairly serious matter – and could be grounds for the court to strike out your claim – with a commensurate loss of your claim fee.

Also in the claim which you have filed you haven't mentioned the tracking number and that means that EVRi will have no idea which consignment you are referring to and therefore they won't have any idea of what they are dealing with in terms of your claim.
You need to remember that EVRi reckon that they are delivering something like 2 million parcels a day.

Secondly, in your claim you have scarcely referred to all of the details which have led up to the loss and your subsequent claim. You haven't explained that there was a contract – or when the contract was made.
You haven't explained the basis on which they apparently refused to refund you. The fact that they operate an insurance policy which amounts to secondary contract and which is contrary to the consumer rights act. The fact that they exclude or limit their liability if you don't buy the insurance policy.

Is this the entirety of the claim which you filed? Did you not include any other information at all?

You came here before you issued the claim. And yet in the end you went ahead and did it on your own and have ignored fundamental rules and made some important basic errors which could prejudice your claim and put you to extra expense.


Also you didn't make a claim for interest. Of course that is up to you but you are claiming over £2000 and 8% interest is a very good rate nowadays and would have been a useful bit of extra cash to accompany your winnings. 


Before we go ahead and try to rescue you, can you confirm my understanding of the above as being correct.

Yes as previously mentioned 22nd was the soonest date from the 10th I could post the letter as I have been receiving treatment.

I recently went through the claims possession process with the county court and I submitted the evidence and full details in a separate document to the original form I filled in online

I thought this would be the same case, which would give me a chance to give a more in depth account of the process and my tracking number and include exhibits such as the emails back and forth.

Am I right in saying I now can go longer submitted extra info to supplement my claim?

Apologies I understood the time scale process incorrectly, I thought I was sending a chase/reminder letter on Day 14, I understood incorrectly that I filling in the online form was in fact this.

First of all, don't bother to apologise to us. You may have to apologise to the court and of course if EVRi decide to object to the issue of proceedings because you didn't send a letter of claim 14 days in advance then you could find that the judge will accept this and strike your claim in which case you will lose your claim fee although you will be able to start again.

In the meantime, yes you can send some additional particulars of claim but we better get a move on.

You may have been receiving treatment but over the past few months you have been disappearing for days and weeks at a time and it is unhelpful to a continuous and consistent approach and this is one of the things that has caused the problem.

Also it is clear that you haven't done reading because if you had done the reading properly you wouldn't have made this very serious mistake.

You need to send the other side a more detailed particulars of claim. Although this will address the problem of not having made your claim properly in your claim form it won't address the problem of your failure to abide by the pre-action protocol and you have simply got to hope that either the other side don't seem to realise it or else a judge is prepared to let it go.

For the moment, we need to get a proper particulars of claim set out.

This means that you're going to have to engage with this thread – and this time do it properly – and take our advice and don't waste time with long absences.

You should realise by now that we are act very quickly here and we expect you to do the same. You are creating a lot of extra work for us and you are prejudicing your chance of a successful claim.

Please start off by setting out a bullet pointed chronology of what happened from the moment that you organise the parcel delivery until the moment that you were informed that the item was lost.

Please don't hang around. Please don't make it more difficult for us

you are confusing a particulars claim with a witness statement.

I have removed most of the paragraphs there and juggle things around a bit. Have a look.

The particulars of claim simply needs to lay out the very basics of your claim.

You refer to the contract and what it did

what the parcel contained in what the value was
give a reference number for the contract
what happened – the parcel was lost which was a breach of contract.
You didn't buy the insurance – say why.
You are claiming from the defendant as you are asserting your rights under the contracts (rights of third parties) act 1999
they have offered you unilateral payment of £XXX
you are now claiming the outstanding balance of £XXX plus interest plus costs.

That's all you need to put.

Head it with the claim number and the court and also head it "Particulars of Claim".

Post the draft please and let's have a look.

Make sure that the paragraphs are properly spaced – yours are far too close together – and numbered.

What you have produced above is really in the form of witness statement which is a much more detailed account of what happened – although even in respect of that, you have included too much unnecessary detail but we can deal with that later.
