    • Thanks guys. So, an update on this. One of the Directors called me earlier in the month. Not sure if they were pleading ignorance, but they genuinely seemed shocked at what I was saying about OPS. They said that once I was made Director, they wanted to discuss a way forward with me on this issue. I presume that meant putting in a solution that would mean that residents stop getting ticketed. Good result there, if so. Interestingly, a few days after, one of OPS's goons arrived at our site. One of my neighbours rang my doorbell, warning me that OPS were taking pictures of my car (which I left outside without a permit), and then were hiding behind one of our flats. I went over to confront said goon and gave them a piece of my mind; telling them that they were scammers and were trespassing, therefore should leave ASAP, or I'll take it further. Came back an hour later and was pleasantly surprised to see that they didn't ticket me, despite me not having a permit up. Not sure what this means, but maybe the Director and MA got spooked by emails and finally whitelisted me? I haven't heard a peep about my PCNs either, though no formal email to say they've been cancelled. Either way, very interesting results, which may indicate that my message is getting into their heads. I'll keep you guys updated as I hear more...

    • 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.
