  1. Thanks for the information to date. I rang Companies House - Parking Control Management Ltd is in liquidation. Parking Control Management (UK) Ltd is not and the latter is the company I am dealing with. Trading Standards - totally unhelpful. Said it was a civil matter and are not getting involved. Land Registry - I have to write in with a map and highlight the area that I need to find ownership of. Online services will only allow you to pick a numbered house on that road and get the details but I need to know who owns the other half of the private road. I don't have Doherty
  2. PIN1ONU - thank you for all your advice in your post. A few questions:- Tom Doherty took the vehicle. Paid PCM via Tom Doherty. Who do I put on the claim form? Both of these people as first and second defendant AND the owners of the private road? I don't have the address of Tom Doherty unless I put it c/o PCM. I don't have photos - I also live 150 miles away. They have photos of my car but wouldn't release them. I have to appeal first. The signs on the left seemed to be for some parking bays off the road. The sign on the right was obscured. I checked the public sign f
  3. No - I got smarmy comments from PCM about how they win their claims. After ringing the SIA, Tom Doherty, who took my car, is licensed, has been for four years and recently renewed his licence. They are sending my complaint to the ahead office. We parked 9:45 am. They clamped 10:45 am (when they don't work on Sundays) They towed at 1:05 pm (because they wanted to go home no doubt). Reasons for towing - causing an obstruction and lapse of time. Point 1 - if causing an obstruction, should remove it straightaway - they didn't. Can't be causing that much of an obstruction then an
  4. I just rang the SIA. They say the person I spoke to is named with them - Tom Doherty. Whether he is employed by PCM, the car clamping company, I don't know. They said they would look into investigating once I provide their licence number, which my husband has in his wallet with the receipt on it! They also said to contact Trading Standards because of the way they were operating - picking up your car on a Sunday with no prompt release upon payment of the fee - trying to force me to pick it up on the Monday. Anyone had any success with Trading Standards? I'm getting confused n
  5. When we parked, we saw a sign high up on the side of a house, on our left, about clamping. The sign was in order as far as I can see having researched it. But it was above four parking bays to the left of the road. You drive over a pavement to get to them. Just a bit further up from the pavement, I parked on the road ahead of some other cars, on the left hand side also. When we came back, we only saw the other sign after which was staggered further up the road on the right hand side, with a bush obscuring it somewhat. The road starts to become private about four or five car lengths o
  6. Thank you for your response. I paid by Debit Card, not Credit Card and I tried my bank. They said I authorised payment but I said I did not willingly authorise payment; I authorised payment under duress - what else was I supposed to do with needing medication, a 1 year old with no provisions for overnight, over 150 miles away from home. They said I don't meet their criteria so we can't claim. Is the Road Traffic Act only applicable to public highways and not to all other companies operating on private roads? Not that it helps with no photographs of my car in its location - I've on
  7. Yes, I read through the long post following all that research the poster did but nothing was mentioned about the law I found that the signs must be three cars' length away and at a reasonable height under the RTA 1991. I noticed it mentioned about the fee having to be reasonable the case law refers to the clamping release fee, or at least, I read it that way, rather than the towing and recovery from the compound. They also have to promptly release my car once an offer of payment is made, but they didn't without getting the police involved but I still got it released on that day, even though th
  8. Thanks to those who moved my post. Sorry - new to this sort of stuff.

  10. Hello Could someone please advise me on my situation? I parked on what I thought was a public road with parking restrictions from 8 am to 6:30 pm Mon to Sat - no parking at all during these times. I was there on a Sunday. Where I parked, the line was broken and faded in places but right opposite, the line was very definite but as people were parked on the left, I didn't want to park opposite so I parked on the left. Just a little further ahead, the road turns private. On the side of the first residential house on the left is the clamping sign but below out are four marked bays up ove
