    • 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,

This is my first post. Please find details below. 

1 Date of the infringement 15 October 2023

2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 13 December 2023

3 Date received 20 December 2023

4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [Y/N?] Does not seem like it

5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes available on their website after punching in my info

6 Have you appealed? [Y/N?] post up your appeal] No

Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up N/A

7 Who is the parking company? MET Parking Services Limited

8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] (346) Southgate Park, Stansted, CM24 1PY

For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under.

Has BPA Logo at the bottom of the front page but refers to POPLA for the appeals

I have used this car park complex many times whilst picking up relatives from the airport.

I decided to park in this particular spot opposite Starbucks and walked over to McDonalds to grab some breakfast.

I was blatantly unaware that I had parked spot that had a sign that said Starbucks only.

I mean in this carpark there are so many signs I've just realised that one is specifically for McDonalds, one does not matter and the other for Starbucks and so on.

It has been 66 days since 15th October.

Do I have any grounds to appeal this?

I have read various other posts for this site whereby the keepers have sent emails to Starbucks and Eurogarges etc.

Please advice as I really would rather not want to pay a £60/100 parking charge.

Thanks in advance

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

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...

Welcome to the Forum.

This is a well known scam site where Met is so easy to park in the wrong car park. Therefore it follows that the signage is not good enough. As it has been going on for a long time, it also follows that there is no inclination on behalf of those involved to amend the situation.

And why should they.  So many visitors there will just pay up to avoid either paying more once they pass the 14 day discount period and they want to avoid going to Court. So Met collects all their money and shares it out with Starbucks and Macdonalds

It is a disgusting situation. So many people are handing over money needlessly. it is unlikely that Met will take anyone to Court because the ripoff may spur the Courts to financially punish them. So yes they will threaten court action so that some more people will pay up but why risk having their scam being broadcast when they are doing very well financially without taking anyone to Court.

As far as the lateness of the PCN is concerned, because the land is covered by airport Byelaws they do not have to send out their PCNs within 14 days as the keeper can never be liable for an airport PCN. Only the driver is liable.

Expect to get loads of rubbish from Met, low life debt collectors and a bunch of rent-a-mug solicitors which can all be ignored. All you have to watch out for is a possible letter of Claim. Come back to us for a snotty reply to them. They should then crawl back into the slime where they belong.

Well done for filling in the forum sticky and doing research about contacting Starbucks/Euro Garages.  We wish everyone who comes here would do the same!

You've seen how to get the invoice cancelled by Starbucks/Euro Garages - copy what the others who have success stories did.

We could do with some help from you.
