    • 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.

Evri lost my return parcel, refusing to pay/cover

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I recently bought some clothes from a US website called Hello Molly (I am UK-based), and returned those that didn't fit. I (*foolishly*) used Evri international courier service, it's been almost 2 months and the parcel is clearly lost. The value of the parcel was almost £1,000 and I paid £114 for the delivery and they are saying all they'll cover is a laughable £20.

I have screenshots of the entire process proving they did not state that they only cover £20, nor did they offer me the option to buy more insurance. This might potentially be a glitch/bug as others in a forum I've posted in have tried the process and DO get this notification. I'm wondering if this can help my cause. I input the value of the parcel and have since provided them with proof showing how much it was worth.

The retailer is saying they won't cover this because they don't offer the returns service and it was something I arranged myself. Evri is refusing to take any responsibility and ignores most of my emails. I've tried emailing the Evri CEO but apparently, this has nothing to do with him because this is Evri International. I'm really stressing about this as it's a lot of money I'll be losing (over £1,000).

Do I have any rights here as a consumer? Can my bank help? (it was a credit card payment). Any help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated.

If you check the website carefully, you will probably find that you didn't contract with EVRi you contracted with parcel2go.

It doesn't make a lot of difference. They are all out of the same stable but anyway the claim you will be making will be against P2G.

Double check that I am right.

Start off by reading the stories on this sub- forum and also the pinned topics at the top. This means lots and lots of reading. The process is fairly straightforward but you need to understand what you are doing because although we will help you, you need to be confident and in control.

Read lots of the stories on the sub- forum.

Also have a look at this thread which has just begun involving the same company

come back here when you have done the reading. I suggest at least a couple of days

@BankFodder thank you for your response and for the link - will spend some time getting really familiar with these other threads. Very saddening to know this is happening all the time, but love that there's a community willing to help and fight!
