I have my appointment to declare onthe 26th of janfollowing simons advice.
However on the 22 Oct last year I recieved a parking ticket from excel parking UNBEKNOWN TO ME
its a strange story because i was issued the ticket at 7.25am on the 23rd Oct the noticeofnon payment wasfor aticket issued at 9.37 pm on the 22nd of october well either way i had paid £110 to excel i queried the ticket and they then said i was issued two tickets on in the evening and one the nextmorning i wet my self laughing as you cant be issueda tickettwicefor the sameoffence
so i rang them no help then wrote a number of letters and every time they changed their story from i was issued one ticket then itmust have been removed firstby myself so they wer entitledto reticket then by someone else then they suggested i had moved the vehicle and as such recommittedthe offence.
so i ring trading standards as there is no controlling body for private parking tickets to complain to and they said get a copy of the issued ticket so back to excel can i have a copy of the ticket ?no you will have to go to court to get proof.back to trading standards who say this is illegal as they are in fact billing me ,to pay a bill first they must provide evidence i owe them the money not a summons to pay the money as i have never evenseen the first ticket
also excel at this stage then say they are checking photographic evidence to assertain if the vehicle was moved and they had the copy of the ticket so could not send it to me
now im getting pretty convinced they are using tactics to delay stall force people topay whentheyknow what is right wrong or unfair they also reduced the £110 not paid to £70 uponmychallenge
so as this is not a council or local authority ticket and i have already paid them £110 for the offence would i be better off just letting them take me to court and charge their 100 quid solicitors charge and £20 for every correspondence in the knowledge that i could have the last laugh
im not declaring because of a parking ticket but was just wondering how this was dealt with its a debt by a private company in my eyes and a method of extorting money at that excel parking agetting abit of a reputation for it so should i screw them like they have tried to screw me
