  1. OK I've done that. I also realised that I have CCTV in my workshop covering the area where he loaded the car, so this should show exactly what he was up to while I was away and how the car ended up pole-vaulting over the anti-roll bar. I've asked him to make copies of his CCTV, and offered a G-Drive link for him to upload them. If he refuses, what do I do? I have never had to initiate any kind of legal action against anyone before so have no idea where to start.
  2. Hi all, Yesterday I had my classic car transported to a new storage location via an agent on Shiply and the driver damaged the car twice - once during loading and again when unloading. The first instance is a little complicated: I had forgot to tighten the anti-roll bar bolts and it had dropped down, rattling on the loading ramp. However, rather than check what the problem was, the driver heaved the car back off the ramp with such force that it inverted the ARB and crushed the chassis rails underneath. I had gone to get cash while this happened and only returned in time to see him h
  3. Yes all forms were sent one PCN at a time in separate emails, and all got receipts. From speaking to the various parties involved, TEC have sent notification to Islington but they have not processed it yet, and the EA is waiting for the info to trickle down. I'm hopeful the clamp will be removed tomorrow morning as you also mentioned.
  4. OK thanks for clarifying. I've been on good terms with the EA throughout and he's been nothing but polite and professional with me, thankfully. He's said he will remove the clamp as soon as he gets notice through but this is the bit that seems to be taking time - I assume because there are several PCNs involved and it's a complex case. I'm going to continue to be polite as that's of course the best way to get a reasonable response. Plus he's just doing his job.
  5. I didn't seek any legal advice, if that's what you mean. I was honest on the forms, however, so I don't expect to have any issues. Is this not contradictory? If the EA has been notified to temporarily cease enforcement, yet they keep control of the vehicle, are they not disobeying the instruction? Further, if there is no current order for enforcement, due to the LA's instruction, are they not therefore seizing the vehicle without grounds? I'm chasing the EA as I am self-employed and this is my only means of doing my job. I'm now missing two days of work and income.
  6. Thanks for the reply. Yes I had moved address and neglected to update the V5; I didn't include that info as I had already submitted my forms to TEC so wasn't looking for advice there. The above has come back to bite twice now, as I picked up several PCNs within a short space of time while moving house - some were paid, some were not present on the vehicle, but the majority were CCTV-related with no physical ticket (as OP) so I was unaware of them until the van was clamped. My forms have all been approved by TEC and sent to Islington Council, who have sent notice to the EA, but
  7. Hi All, Last year Islington Council put a really nasty bus lane * camera at the entrance to the street I parked on.. I thought I had got away without falling foul of it, as I'd used the lane several times prior to a friendly neighbour warning me of its presence, this morning I found that's not the case as my car is currently clamped for 5 outstanding PCNs! I'm not wishing to dispute the PCNs as it's a fair cop and I should have been more aware, but I would like some advice on how to handle Equita today. I called the EA at 07:20 asking for PCN details and explained
  8. It was paid by debit card online. I've just ordered again to a relative's address and will look in to reclaiming my original purchase with my bank.. I'll update this once I've spoken to them.
  9. Hi all, Back in May, I ordered some fabric from an online store (Tissens) in France which never arrived - the tracking info said there was an issue with the address being incomplete. I contacted Tissens' customer support at the beginning of June and they responded saying they would investigate and asked me to confirm my delivery address. I did this and heard nothing back for a further 6 weeks. When I chased it up, they eventually responded to say the shipment had been returned to them, and that if I wanted it shipped out again I would need to pay 14.5EUR. I asked for them to c
  10. Thanks for the replies, we managed to solve this diplomatically in the end. I responded to the trader's offer by stating if he were to reduce the cost by the £20 he could reclaim from Royal Mail and send via recorded delivery, I would be happier with the outcome. We spoke on the phone this morning and his concern is that he won't be able to reclaim anything due to RM saying it has been delivered (according to their system), so we have met in the middle. I'm still out of pocket £30, but I think that's the best outcome I can expect given the circumstances.
  11. We aren't talking much - £60 originally and now £45 with the discount. From our phone conversation, the trader uses a franked delivery service and apparently tracking info on this is extremely limited. From what I can ascertain, I can claim £20 compensation from RM for loss of the items, but only if the trader doesn't also do this. I'll still be out of pocket £25, which sucks, but it's better than nothing I suppose.
  12. Hi All, At the start of June I ordered some tools from an online seller (Uni-Thread LTD) which were shipped via Royal Mail with an un-recorded next day service. After about 3 weeks* I called the seller to find out what had happened and after some investigation RM tracking said the parcel had been delivered - no signature or any further details. *The reason for the 3 week delay is I didn't get a confirmation email or invoice from the seller, so assumed there had been some error and it had failed to go through. It's only when looking back through my accounts that I saw the money had a
  13. Some interesting replies to this.. Firstly, sgtbush, making an OOT declaration is not being an "obstructive person" it is following due process - processes that are set up to protect people (such as myself) who have been blind-sided with charges they were previously unaware of. Would you pay an EA for a debt which you had no prior knowledge of, or would you want to investigate it and follow the available channels to avoid an EA's enormous fees? I don't think the latter is at all unreasonable or "obstructive". When I called the EA originally, I was polite, because I am alw
  14. Hi All, Firstly, this isn't strictly a PCN issue but it is related to one, so I'm not sure if this the appropriate forum and please let me know if not. My vehicle was clamped on 30th June and I discovered this and spoke to the bailiff on 1st July. I've submitted TE7 & TE9 forms to TEC so this should all be resolved this afternoon. However, I am going to make several complaints about the bailiff's actions as he was not only extremely rude and unprofessional when dealing with me, but also probably broke the law. Some background info: I called the bailiff (MO
  15. I know, I just felt I should clarify. No, not at all.. in fact I submitted my company's bank statements when applying for a loan to expand, but that's entirely understandable as it's a transaction between my business and the loan company. In contrast, this is a transaction between myself - an completely separate legal entity - and a letting agent, so I only expect to submit my personal bank statements / credit history etc. I understand they would like to ensure that my business will continue to operate and can afford to pay me, but that can all be determined by looking at the BS /
