    • I've just noted that in Section 4 of the ebay powered by packlink T&Cs, there is a link to a list of webpages for each Transport Agency including Evri. When clicking on this, it redirects to Evri's send terms and conditions, which says: Our contract with you When you send a parcel with us, you enter into a contract with Evri. These terms and conditions set out your responsibilities and our service commitments to you, along with some legal bits about our liability and how you will be compensated in the unlikely event that things go wrong. Link to Evri send T&Cs: https://www.evri.com/terms-and-conditions the extract highlighted in bold above is pertinent as in Evri's own T&Cs, by sending a parcel with Evri, the sender and Evri have entered into a contract.

    • Hi, Evri provided a copy of the Ebay powered by Packlink T&Cs in their WS/Court bundle - this is already uploaded in post #246 yesterday. I copy and pasted the actual wording of clauses 3b and 3c from there into my post #246. see points 3b and 3c in Section 3 (General) through this link to the T&Cs:  https://support-ebay.packlink.com/hc/en-gb/articles/360004768420-eBay-Delivery-Powered-by-Packlink-Terms-and-Conditions#h_01HFXQJBTB441YZGPB7CQP9KFV Screenshot attached below. I cant answer why its not been picked up before. In my opinion, this is called Ebay powered by packlink T&Cs so it could be intepreted to mean Ebay and Packlink's T&Cs rather than Packlink and the delivery couriers T&Cs. In regards to seeing Evri/Packlink's entire contract in original form, in my WS, Evri has been invited to provide this. They have not provided the contract in their WS/court bundle.

    • 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.

Clinch/Blackhorse Finance Advice for now unaffordable car please - want to VT


Recommended Posts

I hope someone can offer advice.

Asking on behalf of my daughter who has mental health issues and can't cope with this sort of thing.

Thanks in advance.

My daughter, who is on benefits due to quite severe mental health problems, purchased a car through Cinch. I think it was between £8,000 and £10,000.

I appreciate it's probably not their business to check on affordability, but at the time I thought it ridiculous she could buy such an expensive car while on benefits. This happened about a year ago I think.

Fast forward to now and as she has moved out of my house, where she lived free, and moved into a privately rented place she can no longer afford to pay for it. These things happen and I'm certainly not blaming anybody.

I just want to be able to help her out of the situation with as little drama as possible 

I was thinking maybe best just to let them repossess the car ,which I guess they will do eventually ,or inform them of the situation to speed up the repossession.

Then apply for something like a DRO to deal with the finance shortfall which I think will be a considerable amount as the car is not in a good way.

I would be really grateful for the opinions and suggestions of the kind and helpful people I know use and run this site.

Many thanks,

Billy.

It is absolutely cinch's business to check on affordability. If they haven't and you can prove that they have given credit to someone they know couldn't afford it at the time then that would be irresponsible lending.

Naturally this doesn't apply if they could afford it at the time and now can't (cinch aren't fortune tellers)

Don't do anything yet!

How long have they had the car and how long is the finance? Who is the finance company?

We could do with some help from you.

Thanks for replying Lolerz.

She has done nothing as yet apart from being unable to pay the last payment or two.

I believe the finance is with Black Horse.

She has had the car about a year and the finance has about 3 years or slightly less to run with an option at the end to return the car or pay a large payment to keep it.

Thanks

so PCP agreement with blackhorse i will guess?

if she has not paid to the 1/3rd mark (see back of agreement for the figure) then the goods are not protected under the consumer credit act.

DO NOT HAND THE CAR BACK OR LET THEM TAKE IT!! it will cost you dear!! 

where is the car parked, on private land or a driveway? if not get it parked there ASAP and NOT ON A PUBLIC ROAD. (they can simply snatch it once they issue a default notice)

you could start an unaffordable lending claim against CLINCH

Irresponsible lending (IRL) PDL Reclaim Guide - Indepth Step By Step - PayDay loans and Short Term loans - General - Consumer Action Group

if its works everything might be rolled back and cost nothing other than handing the car over but let's see. 

was she on benefits before the move out only too? was her file shot with defaults and lots of outstanding lending when she got the car?

DO NOT do a DRO if you can poss avoid it. as it wont only be for the car finance but all her debts and that turns unsecured debt into a legally binding order. not a good idea. esp as she is renting, they wont like that on her file.

if the IRL  fails then best bet is to do a Voluntary Termination ONLY , she must instigate that NOT let Clinch do a Voluntary Surrender!

VT costs only to the 50% mark.

VS cost the 100% loan amount minus what they get reselling the car.

let us know your thoughts now please

Thanks dx.

She has never looked at her credit file so I am going to try and help her do it tomorrow.

Pretty sure she hasn't reached the one third mark but I'll check with her tomorrow.

I just read the unaffordable lending thing and didn't really understand it.

I do know it mentions a Voluntary Termination is available in her paperwork.

The car is on a public road but I could get her to move it to my drive if this helps.

She was on benefits while she lived at mine too.

She only really had money for the car because I let her stay for free.

Many thanks for getting back to me. I'll try to find out more tomorrow

Regards

Billy

IRL is a complaint the finance was mis sold because they might not have done any credit checks on her, which under lending laws they must.

I have now seen her credit file. It only really shows the car loan and the car insurance.

I guess this means she can't claim they didn't do affordability checks so what would be advice as to her next step?

Thanks in advance

ok

well BH aren't known for being nasty etc, they are lloyd a mainstream bank. not like moneybarn motonova etc etc. that can be very nasty.

does she want to keep the car?
but its just going to be if truthful there is no chance of being able to pay for it realistically going forward and ofcourse use = running costs too?

the cheapest option here is going to be VT (has to write) whereby she will only owe to the 50% mark detailed on the back of their agreement. and as its BH i suspect once that is done and dusted , will most probably be persuaded to accept even lower payments.

your thoughts

Thanks for replying dx.

No she doesn't want to keep the car. It's cost and other running costs are impossible for her now . I just want to get the situation settled with the least amount of stress for her because of her mental health. 

Cheers,

Billy
