#429154 E-Bay Seller Doing My Head In!!!!!!

Posted by The Dark Knight on 17 November 2014 - 06:36 PM

Looking back through this and the PM you sent, it seems it was faulty well within 28 days anyway so their argument falls over! You requested a refund within 28 days.

I'd ask them what makes them think they can enforce the 28 day limit on a refund. They will probably agree that had it become faulty within the first 28 days of purchase, they would have refunded.

 

Well perhaps we should inform them that any goods that prove to be NOT of satisfactory quality (seems so to me in this case) within 6 months of delivery to the buyer, are taken to have been unsatisfactory from the very day of delivery to the buyer.

 

I'm sure eBay will sort this but their failure to repair having been given chances means (in my opinion) that you are entitled to request a refund. You must of course tell them that you are rejecting the goods under SOGA and requesting a refund (if eBay don't sort it that is).

 

Case law supports that all this time spent requesting repair and waiting for replies etc, is NOT to be counted when determining if enough time has passed for the buyer to have accepted the goods in the eyes of the law.

 

You would also inform them (letter before action) of your intention to take them to the small claims court. Whether you saw that through is up to you but sometimes the threat is enough.

There's always Sale of Goods Act 1979. They are dealing in the course of a business and you are a consumer.

 

Expectation of quality etc is lessened with used or re-furbed products but you still have rights. Within 6 months of purchase, the burden is on the seller to prove it was fine when delivered to you as opposed to you having to prove it wasn't.

 

You are supposed to give the seller chance to repair under SOGA and they have had that chance and failed. You are well within your rights to request a refund but they will claim that sufficient time has passed that shows you have accepted the goods rather than rejecting them.

 

That argument falls down on the basis that case law (name escapes me now), shows that time taken requesting or carrying out repairs is not to be counted when deciding whether or not sufficient time has passed which shows the buyer has accepted the goods.

It is 1.6kg apparently but it's weight is infinite to those who are not worthy lol.

It feels really substantial and just right with the weight. Well pleased with it.

Indeed Phil. A couple of weeks ago, I went on eBay whilst drinking whisky (always a bad idea). Ended up spending almost £100 on a proper replica of Thor's hammer, Mjolnir.

 

It arrived today (from China) and it is brilliant to be fair! It's going on the desk at work as a nice paperweight or useful tool to vent anger lol :P :lol:

Well make sure you enjoy LA! I went in August before hitting Vegas and San Francisco (and lots of places in between, including Grand Canyon). Ours was a coach tour holiday and I can't recommend it highly enough. Best holiday ever! (Far too hot in Palm Springs though lol).

 

One of my fave memories was the night we got seriously drunk in a small bar in Sonora! We packed the place out and had a right laugh with the locals. Some of the guys off our bus were from New Zealand and they could certainly put it away!

 

We are meeting up with some of our new friends at Christmas who were on the tour with us. Some live in Birmingham and the others are from Bedford. We are meeting at the Birmingham Christmas Market and will head down on the train. :D




#426310 The Finished Product: Winter Tyres Fitted!

Posted by The Dark Knight on 07 November 2014 - 06:29 PM

I used a guy I know who does them. Charged me £35 per wheel. So £100 for the wheels and £140 for the refurb is still cheap at £240 for what are now new wheels! The damage was only cosmetic, no cracks or anything.

 

It took him 4 hours to sand down one of the wheels, they were so manky!

They're releasing like 6 new marvel films over the next few years, super excited!
No clue what the interesting part at the beginning is though?

 

The interesting part is that Captain America managed to move Mjolnir just a little bit!! Nobody can move that other than Thor!

 

You remember in Avengers that Hulk tried to lift it during his battle with Thor on the Heli-carrier and it wouldn't budge.

 

From memory of the first Thor movie, Odin said that "For whoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor"

 

The slight movement of Mjolnir by Cap (Thor looked very worried), shows he is slightly worthy of lifting it. Perhaps he will need to be worthy should Thor be knocked out by Ultron or something during battle.

I agree that cars get dirty more quickly at this time of year but we can't win really. In the summer, if/when we get a good run of warm dry weather, one drive down the motorway or any fast road really and you can't see through the windscreen for dead flies! :angry:

 

The front of the car is also splattered with their guts. You would think they would choose better places to hang out really. Oh, and you need napalm to fetch them off.

#422620 My St Has Had The Mobile Pro-Valeters Treatment

Posted by The Dark Knight on 25 October 2014 - 10:47 AM

Having been ill this week and certainly not feeling up to cleaning the ST myself, I phoned Careys mobile car valeting who have come out this morning to wash and polish my ST using a special paste wax.

 

The ST was filthy (should have got some before shots) and has not been cleaned for weeks now. The relentless wind and rain made me think there wasn't much point in cleaning it. Lovely dry, sunny weather today and forecast to stay that way for at least several more days here.

 

He is almost finished and for a mere £35, the results are superb. I will post photo's shortly and a link to the valeters website (unless the mods say that such a link breaches rules of course).




#422458 Avengers: Age Of Ultron

Posted by The Dark Knight on 24 October 2014 - 06:23 PM

from what i read Avengers 3 is gearing up to be a cival war between them.

 

Potential Spoiler to follow!!

 

Ive never read the comics but IGN.co.uk have reviews every now and then and Falcon or Bucky (winter Soldier) take over as captain america steps down. (if i read right)

 

In the civil war storyline (in the comics), Steve Rogers was killed in an act orchestrated by the Red Skull, following the end of the war and Rogers approaching trial for his role against the registration of superpowered beings. Stark wanted Barton (Hawkeye) to take the role of Cap but Rogers had written a letter saying he wanted Bucky to take over.

 

Years later, Marvel brought Rogers back who wasn't dead afterall. The shot had effectively taken his consciousness back in time to past life events and battles.

 

Honestly that man is the main reason I went to go see those films. He's so beautiful :(

 

I used to look like him before I got a desk job :lol:
