    • Thank you. Please will you repost your images in one single multipage PDF file – the right way round et cetera.  
    • And just to reiterate – I'm sorry if the message above sounds a bit harsh. We have to get the message out to other people who visit this thread as well. I realise that you are having a difficult time and we will do our best to help you, of course
    • The last photo shows the overflow carpark looking at the block which our room was located. When we got out of the car my partner thought that the building was for staff accommodation.  The unsecured bedroom window opened onto this car park.
    • Also I see that you are doing a lot of this on the telephone – and without any written confirmation. This is a big mistake. You need to start taking this matter seriously and so everything should go in writing. If you have telephone calls then they should normally be recorded. Read our customer services guide. You should make notes about every telephone call and then you should send an email to your telephone correspondence confirming what they have said or what they have agreed. It is important that you keep detailed paper trails here. Of course we may be jumping the gun and maybe big motoring world will step up to the mark – but I'm afraid that they have a lousy reputation has you have seen and so you need to start practising survival techniques and protecting yourself. You say for instance in your letter of rejection that the mechanic told you on the telephone that the gearbox needed replacing. Do you have any other evidence of this conversation? This is going to sound a bit harsh – but other people will be visiting this thread as well for their own purposes. You conducted their research about this company before you bought the vehicle. You now are fully aware that this is a company which can be very difficult to deal with and causes a lot of problems for many of their customers and yet you are still taking a telephone/verbal approach. Do I need to say any more? Also one of the documents you put up is an email exchange but it is not clear who is writing to who or what dates. If you showed this email to somebody in a pub they would be asking lots of questions about who sent the first message, who sent the second message, what dates were they sent et cetera. Please think about this before you post things. Please can you clarify the details of that email exchange. Please will you present the information carefully. We are all volunteers here and we have to rely on you to do the spadework
    • I told the DM that the room was not acceptable because of the reasons already mentioned. He informed me that they were full that night and that they could move me to the room next door (would not solve my problem with the rooms location). Told the DM that I could not stay in the room provided for the night so left no option but to leave. DM did not reply and I walked out.

    • 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.

Hi All,

 

Got a parking ticket for "parking in a restricted street during prescribed hours".

The CEO took photos of my car on a double yellow, however, there were fading parking box paintings that caused confusion.

Do I have a case?

Then you in advance and for the help you all give.

the car is parked on DYL's and in a space designated only for motor cycles and only within the restricted hours on the sign.

The black car you see in photos was parked where motorcycles are meant to.

I was parked in front of it.

The pictures you see where there is no car parked but a double yellow with faded box markings is where I parked.

Let me know if I should circle where I'm talking about to make it clearer.

but you didnt tell us the photos are yours not from the CEO.

you are still parked on DYL's and the only parking allowed was motorcycles, in the next named space

i suspect that box says deliveries only.

there appears to be no car parking allowed at all,

the PDF has page numbers ....WHICH are the page numbers that are the CEO photos please

you parked in a restricted street.

the street and it's bays are named for their differing purposes

outside of these 'prescribed times' car parking IS allowed in the motorcycles space and the sign details this. the black car is there at 02:45AM on a friday which is outside the sign times. there appears a single yellow line in that bay, as there does in the bay the otherside of the deliveries bay you parked in.

the delivery bay has DYL's but the CEO stated 'parked in a restricted street during prescribed hours' 

which indicates there must be another sign apart from the motorcycle one that details the prescribed hours that delivery bay CAN be parked in....where is it?

Pages 8 and 9 are the CEO's pictures. Pages 2, 4, 5 and 6 are my pictures of the empty spot where I was parked at the time of the contravention. Page 3 shows the only signages there. This signaging can also be seen located above the black Toyota you can see on pages 4, 5 and 6. Hope this makes more sense?

there are 2 signs on the road thats well enough. and the first is no more than 25 ft from where you parked.!!

the bay 'markings' faded or not mean nothing, not sure why you think they do?

you CANNOT park on that road between 6.30pm and 8.30am.

Pic 4 shows from left to right:

M/c bay: Mon -Sat 7am-7pm and between 8.30am - 6.30pm a P&D bay, but for m/c's only

DYL's

P&D bay : Mon-Sat  8.30am -6.30pm which then becomes a Taxis only bay  6.30pm-8.30am

You were parked between the two bays on the DYL's which although not necessarily in the best condition were nevertheless clear. DYL's do not require signage.
