I rejected the first offer for my car because it was considerably lower than market value (£6900 offered and I felt £8000 was reasonable in my case). Two weeks of exchanges followed and eventually we settled on £7650
Anything else let me know
Yes it was a credit hire rental agreement. I can attach a copy if you need it
It does say that liability rests with me but is this not deemed unfair?
I was reluctant to sign but felt I had no choice as i was in a desperate situation as we have no other car between my partner and I, and we need one
I received the hire car on Monday 23rd March
The first valuation was sent to me on Wednesday 01st (9 days)
The request from solicitors to return the car came immediately that afternoon with a collection for Thursday 02nd (as discussed I was away on business)
The car was returned Tuesday 07th (15 days)
We agreed on the car settlement on 16th
Cancelling within 14 days was thus not an option
Yes I did. When I called the solicitors to get some assistance as I was concerned that in the agreement the hire charge per day was excessive (£338 per day) I was told that this was excessive because it is a negotiation piece between them (solicitors) and other party's insurer and not to worry
I was therefore confused at where the liability sat
Yes.I haven't been charged that amount either (£110 per day)
It is beginning to sound like I'm out of pocket here, is this s lost cause?
