    • 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

I need some advice from anyone who has made a claim in a Scottish court.

Is it true that the max claim that can be made in Scottish small claims is £750, if this is true it is very worrying forme, as I am trying to claim back £1395.

 

any advice would be appreciated.

 

Cheers

Steve,

 

Without wanting to sound patronising, you need to read up a little more on case studies and FAQs if you can't answer this one. It's important to make sure you know what you are doing so you can preempt any problems rather than waiting for someone on the forums to sort it for you!!

 

In respose, yes you are correct, 750 is the maximum. It's quite straightforward to resolve this. Make two claims. However you split it is up to you. Find a date where either side of it the amounts are less than 750 then you can claim from start date to this date then another claim from this date to end date.

If my post has been useful, tip my scales and let me know

Hi Steve

 

Alternatively you could raise an action called Summary Cause which means you can claim from £750 up to £1500 instead of splitting into 2 small claims. The cost of this is the same - £39. You will find all the info you need here Summary Cause Guidance Notes

 

You can complete the forms (1 & 1b) online then print off and hand into your nearest Sheriff Court.

Hope this helps

 

Cheers

Thanks T4FF

I have read the FQA's and others threads and know a lot more about the process.

I will probably raise two claims, but I looking at the summery cause raised tanzi10.

Thanks for you help

I have never heard of this process, I was about to start raising to claims in the small claims court, but I will look at summery cause first.

Have you or do you know of someone who has used this process.

Thanks you've have been a great help.
