About Me


  1. I ordered something of significant value and size from Aldi and it was due for delivery last Monday by Yodel. I have ordered many items from Aldi in the past all of which have been successfully delivered by Yodel. On Monday, I tracked the delivery until there were just two or three before mine and then kept an eye out for the Yodel van in anticipation. Then, when mine was the next delivery, the status said that the driver could not get access to my property. There are no obstacles to my house whatsoever. Contacting Yodel seems to be a choice between hit and miss on Twitter
  2. Hi I'm wondering if anyone can help. Received a parking Eye charge and appealed but it's been unsuccessful. I wasn't aware of a time limit, shopped for Christmas and I'm disabled so it took longer because a) I can't walk very well and b) the shop was busy with Christmas checkout queues/busy aisles. I was there 1hr 57 mins apparently. In my online appeal I couldn't find the receipt so uploaded a copy of my bank statement showing a purchase on that day. I've since found the receipt. The error I made from reading these boards now is that I named myself (regist
  3. I don't have a Lidl within a reasonable distance, but there is an Aldi. Are these two stores similar in price and quality ? I would appreciate some comments from customers of these stores - Thank you
  4. Default Re: Aldi customers told to register their vehicles in-store or face a fine. I drove into Romsey on 8th Feb at night (in the dark) and the first safe place I found to park was Aldi. I live in Staffordshire and had travelled down for a family wedding. I went with my daughter to find the registry office, then went into the Aldi store to pick up some munchies for the B&B. I returned to Romsey Aldi the next day (9th Feb) for the wedding, sent my 16 year old daughter to the parking meter for a ticket as we weren't going into the store. A few days later
  5. Hi all Looking for some advise with regards to PNC This is on behalf of a friend. He parked in the Auldi car park to do a shop. What he did not do was punch in his reg number. He was there a total of 29 mins (according to PE) He has now received a Notice to Owner, an invoice for £70.00 reduced if paid quickly. He said he is going to appeal. any advise would be gratefully appreciated. Leakie
  6. Hi there, I wonder if you can help. I purchased a bike rack from Aldi and assembled it according to the instructions. I put the bikes on the back and headed off on holiday. We had been travelling less than 10 minutes on the motorway when the 2 of the bikes flew across the motorway. By some miracle nobody was hurt. The strap had snapped as the cradles had worked loose and there was nothing to stop them flying off. The motorway patrol came and retrieved the bikes, one of which was totally destroyed. He then put the other bike back on the rack, used the snapped strap to attach and en
  7. New Aldi has opened up in Portishead, Bristol - and includes ANPR cameras for Parking Eye, with an hour and a half parking limit. They have made two mistakes..... (1) They bought the store from the Co-Op who decided to pull out of the town due to increased competition (Waitrose, Lidl, Iceland, Sainsburys etc) but the original covenant when change of use was placed on the land and Co-Op got planning consent was that a minimum of 2 hours free parking is provided. (2) The planning application for Aldi to make various changes to the store appearance & to redesign the car park di
  8. http://www.stokesentinel.co.uk/Aldi-customers-told-register-vehicles-store-face/story-27985958-detail/story.html I don't see how this really helps with the congested car park as anybody is still allowed to park there without using Aldi...
  9. http://www.kentonline.co.uk/medway/news/mouse-infestation-closes-supermarket-41346/ I like one of the comments from readers of this article.
  10. Hello. Parkingeye run the car park in our local Aldi, when you have finished your shopping and paid, you then go to a terminal and enter your car reg details and then leave. We shop there on a regular basis, spending £50 or more per visit, on Sat 13th June my partner entered the car park, shopped in Aldi, spent £8.05 and then left the car park 27 minutes later. On Monday 22nd June we received a PCN for £70 reduced to £40 if paid within 14 days. I have been reading with great interest some of the advice regarding appealing this fine and I think I have grounds for an appeal!
  11. Hi guys. Just thought I would share a hopefully helpful experience and would like to hear if this works for anyone else! I recently got a ticket through the post from Parking Lie and was fuming. I received it in a small town which only has free car parking so it's weird how Aldi has managed parking but the other 500 council spaces are free with no time limits! Anyway I phoned Aldi to complain and let them know I was not happy after doing my weekly shop there and it costing me an extra £70 in Parking Lie charges and they said they would help me appeal the ticked but could not gu
  12. My wife went to local Aldi for first time using their car park. Have today received parking charge notice for £70 (reduced to £40 if paid within 14 days) for parking in the Aldi car park. Allegedly my wife should entered her registration at a terminal inside the store to qualify for free parking. She did not see the sign. She did her shopping in the store then departed (33minutes later). Have read through other threads that suggest this is virtually a [problem] and should be disputed. Appreciate some assistance/thoughts from anyone who can
  13. Hi I have today received a Parking Charge Notice (PCN) from a company called parking eye. It is for an incident that occured on 12/11/14 and was issued on 19/11/14 but only received today 24/11/14. My question very simply is are these notices enforceable or can I just ignore it? If anyone needs any further information please just ask and I'll give it, however I wont be able to do so until this evening Thanks in advance.
  14. waiting in anticipation of aldi's new PE parking charge for an overstay ,now on day 2 of the alleged parking offence, more will be revealed when/if the I receive the said threatening letter. keep your eyes peeled on this one.
  15. Just got a £70 fine for 'overstaying' in Aldi's Boscombe store. As a paying customer I would expect to at least be informed that this time restriction was in place. Signage is appalling. I would have gone elsewhere to do my shopping if I had known about the ?70 tax on shopping at Aldi. Apparently there is a machine inside you're meant to put your registration number into - only they try not to let you know as it is more profitable for them to get their hired thugs to send court threats and fines. I now have to deal with Parking Eye - a well documented bunch of cowboy bullies with a n
  16. You'll Love This - Supermarket staff broke into a woman’s car and rolled it into a bush so a truck could make a delivery. Janina Wasiuta says she had just finished work when she noticed that her Ford Fiesta was no longer where she left it that morning – parked in an alley between an Aldi and a railway line.
  17. As this was a hot topic in a recent thread when I received my latest invoice,I thought I'd try it. Posted appeal on same day I received invoice. Appeal was simply- I am not liable for this charge and wish to invoke your appeals process.Enclosed is a receipt for the date concerned. From date I received the parking charge notice to cancelation of charge letter ,12 days!
  18. I have recently received my latest bank statements, after checking through them I noticed two Aldi transactions had been duplicated and funds with drawn from my account. The first for £23.87 on the 24.03.2014 the second for £18.78 on the 25.03.2014. The statements show that on the 26.03.2014 another £23.87 and £18.78 had been with drawn from my account. On the 27.03.2014 £18.78 was refunded and on the 28.03.2014 £23.87 was refunded. Unfortunately this caused me to enter my overdraft and although I do have an overdraft facility the Nat West now charge £6 per month for the us
  19. I did this and wish I had not. Absolutely disgusting food. Threw the lot of it in the bin even after my pooch stuck her nose up at it. Bland is certainly the word, everything was just tastless, cheddar cheese like rubber, weetabix type cereal like cardboard and bread that went off and crumbled in my hand just 12 hours after buying it! I have to say, people who regularly shop here must have a palate like a cat's toilet tray if they put up with that muck. Disgusting in the extreme, will never patronise either place ever again. Money wasting more like!
  20. I'm expecting court papers from ParkingEye shortly and will be submitting a defence based around them not being the landowner, not a true pre-estiamate of cost etc as well as a mitigating circumstance (the mitiaging circumstance wont hold much weight in law, but may help get some sympathy). I was however wondering about a further line of defence and that is the definition of parking. ANPR records when you enter the site and exit the site and parkingeye issue a ticket based on the differance between the 2. However at the point of entry and point of exist you arent actually parked as t
  21. I hope they didn't park in Aldi's car park. Could be a risk of over staying! http://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/thousands-queue-40-jobs-offer-german-discounter-aldi-043031416.html
  22. Hi, I have been an avid reader here for many years the amount of things you have helped me sort out is unbelievable and thank you for that I regret that my first ever post here is one asking for advice but here we go. I today got a PCN through the post from Parking Eye from my recent and only visit to them on the 6th September times were hard and after seeing the advertisement on the telly boasting how cheap they was we took what little money we had at the time to stock up the cupboards as much as possible I parked my car in a designated bay unloaded my two sons and went and did my s
  23. I have been asked to post this here by somebody over on PePiPoo:- Ok Guys, this is a self help posting, today I spoke to a lady at parking eye who guarantees to get any PE parking charge, even at court stage cancelled if you are able to demonstrate you are a customer, I challenged her that not every one keeps till receipts, she told me there are a number of ways to determine shopper status and asks that if anyone has a PE charge to ring her department direct line on 0179 38 36 31 3 They are keen that no customer suffers, which means they only "penalise non customers"
  24. Hello all, I feel like my head is going to implode under stress of whats happening to me.. hoping someone has some ideas .. I'll try to keep it brief. Oct 2011 Drove my much treasured 1960s classic car to one of those German supermarkets East Grinstead (Sussex) Branch. Left store got into car, some guy follows me to car and accuses me of stealing something from shop (didn't!) I try to ignore him and try to leave but he then KICKED my car, damaging a rear lamp etc. I got VERY angry and shouted at him and he ran off, I caught up with him and grabbed him. Really felt like beating the liv
  25. Daughter got a Parking Eye fine, which she paid for fear of it increasing from £40 to £70, in Aldi car park - two people shopping (with my wife) only allowed 1 hour. Wife in process of trying to get money back when daughter gets another today. This week she did move the car. Have told her not to pay but looking for some expert advice as seems a legal minefield. Is it too obvious for her to tell them she does not know who was driving. Photo only shows driving in and driving out times. Could argue left before the hour was up and returned and then left at photo!! Not happy DVLA is
