Do they say you are responsible for the damage?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Yes because van was still in my possession, I am not worried about the 180£ but the rest of excess is over 1k£ and they are holding it for almost a half an year now
Expert:  Jo C. replied 9 months ago.
Ok. Did you pay by visa or by debit?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I pay via debit card but in the meantime it got exported, I did give them new card detail which they accept and response that transfer will be make but never did

Expert:  Jo C. replied 9 months ago.
Are you prepared to sue them?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
At this point I think I am, just not sure how to go about it, never had any experience with law
Expert:  Jo C. replied 9 months ago.
Send them one letter giving them 14 days to pay and make clear that in default you will sue and seek costs and interests. If they do not pay then issue against them here www.moneyclaim.gov.uk Costs will be about £50-£100 and you will be able to recover. It is quite unlikely to come to a contested action. Can I clarify anything for you? Jo
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I will do that. Is there an certain form to this letter? English is my second language and I just want them to get the message clear.Thank you
Expert:  Jo C. replied 9 months ago.
No, not really. Just tell them you want a refund of X by Y date and in default you will sue.No need for anything complicated.
