    • 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,

Hope someone can give me some advice. I bought a computer motherboard from a UK seller. 
 
When it arrived I put the system together, it wouldn’t post. The motherboard LED’s showed a fault with both the ram and CPU. As they were also new, I thought it unlikely that they were both faulty. But with no way to check, I disassembled the PC and followed the seller's return procedures, as I had no way to test which part was actually causing the fault.
 
The seller has come back to me saying the damage was caused during installation and as such they won’t refund or replace.
 
I genuinely don’t believe it was caused by myself. And quoted both the distance selling regs and consumer contract asking for proof I damaged the item and if they couldn’t provide it then a full refund or replacement.
 
They’ve replied with this
 
“With regards to the damage found, this is consistent with installation damage and would have been covered under our insurance if this had been taken out. To however be clear, this was not an accusation of you causing such damage. We are only advising of the condition in which the goods have been received back at Scan. As the goods had been installed, with no damage being reported at any point, this would be deemed as evidence that the goods were not received by you with physical damage. Prior to any form of testing or processing, all goods are subject to a routine inspection. As part of the inspection process, our checks not only cover the item, but also the packaging in which the goods have been received back in for any signs of tampering or transit damage. In this case, there is no evidence to suggest either.
 
With regards to the Consumer Contracts Regulations, this outlines your rights for goods that have been sold at a distance. For goods that are unwanted/non-faulty, returns would be carried out in accordance to this. The goods would be required to be returned in the same condition as sold and complete. As a fault had been reported in this case, your return was initiated in accordance with the Consumer Rights Act 2015. Unfortunately, due to the goods being received back with physical damage, we are unable to process the goods in accordance to either of these regulations.
 
In accordance with the information we have and the condition of the goods, we are unfortunately unable to issue a replacement or refund.”
 
Do I have any recourse here? I paid with paypal.
 
I’m currently out £150 and don’t believe I caused any damage.
 

Thanks for any advice.

I will be if they don’t refund but again I don’t trust PayPal to do the right thing either. So it would be 50/50. 

If I have rights in this situation I’d like to know what route to follow in order to convince the seller to refund. 

And because if I haven’t then I don’t want to take money off them if I’m in the wrong.

no dates on any of the info so how can we tell if your 14 days or faulty 30 days under 2 differing consumer laws apply?

and why are you protecting the seller by not naming them?

simply tell Paypal the items didn't work.

they'll side with you.

and you can always do a chargeback to your bank.
