    • 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.

Will need to incorporate references to this in your witness statement.

 including the Bradbury vs UPS case was to be even handed with the judge about a case which has an adverse judgement in a similar scenario to me, and why this judgement should not apply to my case 


It should be noted that in the Bradbury vs UPS case, the claimant did also point out the same Packlink terms and conditions to the judge as i did in my case. Yet the judge did not find in the claimant's favour.

Therefore, i think it may still be needed in your case to show the judge you are open and upfront about a similar case which has relied on the same T&Cs yet received an adverse outcom

BF also explained to me the Bradbury vs UPS must be included in the bundle and that Hugo Martin had been made aware that it would be included in bundles in future.


Re: my case transcript - I believe BF has applied for it but this can take 6 weeks+.

Re: mediation - RT  I hope you point out to the judge that you tried mediation but Evri were unprepared for the appointment and it became a waste of time and resource because of this.

please people, stop using @username. and unnecessary quotes...

they are unnecessary in posts, as anyone thats already posted to your thread automatically gets an alert when someone has posted in threads.

makes threads twice as long and doubles the amount of alert emails that go out.




  • Thanks 1

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...

Hi everyone,

I am compiling my court bundle and witness statement, due 30th July. 

Within it I obviously would like to reference @occysrazor recently successful and very similar case, however as I understand it the case summary is not available yet.

Is there some way I could still reference it, and if so, how?

As always, thank you for your help.
