  1. MBNA sold debts that belonged to both me and my husband. Idem bought mine, Moorcroft bought my husbands. I emailed Idem regarding reduced payments that I would make, and eventually they responded agreeing to my reduced amount. However, Moorcroft ignore emails (sent day after day) and they will not reply despite my husband requesting that they not call, but put in writing instead. They call anyway, and to whomever called, I asked them not to call, but to respond to my husband's emails - however, the chap then called my husband's mobile immediately! I got
  2. Hello All, I received a PCN from HX Car Park Management in the mail a few weeks ago. The contravention was that the pay and display ticket was face down. The "charge" was £100, discounted to £60 if paid quickly. Needless to say, I appealed, pointing out that: I would not identify the driver. There was no suggestion that the daily parking fee was not paid. Their photographs show a ticket displayed on the dashboard. The tickets issued at this car park are a different colour each day making it obvious that a valid ticket had been purchased. These is an attendant on duty to take p
  3. Having received a parking invoice for parking on private land from UK Parking Management LTD, I failed to respond or appeal. As I am unlucky enough to be subject to another private parking charge , I had confused the two and thought I had appealed but it seems I did not..... ..I have now had a letter from Debt Recovery Plus asking for £160. I called them upon receipt and asked for copies of the original invoice and some other information (such as the address of the parking company - so I could write to them directly). All of my requests were (quite rudely) refused
  4. My dad bought a used Peugeot 3008 from a main dealer. It had low mileage. He paid just under £7000 for it. The car came with a 3 month warranty. My dad has done around 600 miles in the car since he bought it. The warranty had expired only 2 weeks earlier. He took a friend to hospital which was a 200 mile round trip. On the way there the car suddenly lost all power and went into limp mode. AA came and said something was wrong with the injectors and he couldn't fix it. AA had to tow my dads car home. My Dad took the car back to the dealer. They said some of the injectors had
  5. I got a NTK through the post today. Attached is the NTK and sat view of the layout. The entrance ANPR camera is before any car park signs, It does not say whether the driver was parked in the actual car park or on the forecourt. Street view shows the signs, I am unable to get a picture of the sign without a drive into London to get there. https://goo.gl/maps/yh1ehnDVUsR2 For PCN's received through the post [ANPR camera capture] please answer the following questions. 1 Date of the infringement 27/09/2018 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days
  6. I wonder if anyone could advise me on behalf of my son. His car recently had a problem and he called the RAC out to deal with it. The car, which is automatic, was towed to a garage. The car was hooked up and driven at 50 miles an hour or more, this resulted in his gear box being damaged. His car was repaired for the original problem when it broke down but the garage commented on the problem with the gear box. Renault recommended that a car being towed should not be over 15 miles per hour. This has been taken up with the RAC who have taken 3 weeks to get back to him to say after spe
  7. Hi, new to the forum, thanks in advance. The PCN came though the post, ANPR capture, no ticket. Date of infringement 08/12/2018. NTK was issued on 12/12/2019 for £60. I've been working away, so effectively ignored it. I received a Keeper Liability Notice on 16/01/2019 but I was still away and have just returned and opened it (28/01/2019). Schedule 4 Protections of freedoms Act is mentioned. I have made no contact with them. The parking company is HX Carpark Management Ltd The car park address is Vulcans Lane Car Park, Vulcans Lane, Workington, Cumbria CA14 2BP They oper
  8. hi everyone, I have a problem with a dealership where i purchased a car. I am currently at deadlock with a well known UK car dealership. Background. I saw a car advertised on their website, I took it for a test drive and returned at a later date so my partner could take it for a test drive. When she was out on the drive I saw a different car, one that i always wanted and this was not advertised on their website. My partner returned and she told me she did not like the drive of the car she took out i decided i would take the car that I was looking at when she was out
  9. First time poster here desperate for some advice after google has proved fruitless. This is a long ongoing story so please forgive the length and thank you in advance if you manage to read everything. I bought my first car 28/06/2018 from a car dealership in Hounslow, ATM Motor Trade. I found the car on Auto Trader, the dealer had good reviews and it was a good deal for the car that I wanted. The drive from my house was around 90 minutes each way but I was confident I was going to love the car. The saleswoman seemed knowledgable and friendly and I bought the car that day. I paid by
  10. Just into the New Year I obtained a second car for the wife. It was a 2004 mitsubishi carisma DID. Although it had 141K on the clock it was in immaculate condition and had a FSH. It was cheaper for me to change my single-car policy to duel-car than she take out insurance separately, so that's what I did. A week ago Thursday someone decided to steal it. I rang the police, who asked if there was any cctv. I told them where they could find it, and left it at that. I rang back a couple of days later to find out if there was any progress, only to be told that they were
  11. Hi, I bought a car which is currently taxed in the disable category. I only have the MOT and the green slip of the new buyer. How can I tax it?
  12. Hi, I've just bought a car from a private seller. Very happy with the car but when I went to tax it before picking it up I noticed that it is classed as disabled for tax purposes. It is currently SORN. I have the new keepers supplement but the seller retained the rest of the V5. I have the MOT certificate. Can I change the tax class at the post office and pay for tax at the same time?
  13. I'm livid - today we have received a £100!!!!! 'charge' for parking 'longer than the maximum period permitted' (which is 60mins) on the 9th Feb 2019. We went to see an evening performance at Theatre Deli and parked in the carpark directly outside the theatre, which is on a small retail park (it used to be a carpet shop). A theatre performance is obviously going to last more than an hour, and as there were no pay machines we presumed it was free to park (especially on an evening). The notice is dated 21.2.19, the envelope does not have a post mark. The PCN is from VCS Ltd who are mem
  14. Sorry its long just want to include all the details. On the 17th March I bought a 1.6 16v petrol Citroen Xsara Picasso 77k on clock from Trade Cars of Cleckheaton http://www.tradecarscleckheaton.co.uk/ for £1200 paying £700 cash and £500 on a debit card. On viewing the car when I first started it the car gave off quite a bit of smoke for about the first 30 seconds which cleared, the garage staff said, "it will be just condensation as its been standing for while". I test drove it and it drove ok apart from a front anti-roll bar needing replacing which I agreed to do so I bought it
  15. Hello, Me again! I received a charge notice for parking on their clients property for a CHARGE NOTICE from Highview Parking, Bradfield Road Car Park, Sheffield S6 2BW Date: 18.12.18 Time: 19:47 Time left: 22:27 Duration: 2hrs 40 mins I had been for a meal at the Italian restaurant for my managers retirement hence the late time of arrival. The car park was empty and so presumed it would have exceeded the time period with it being unsociable hours. Having spoken with friends and family, I decided to ignore the first letter but have received a second one today to
  16. morning all travelling back from holiday and have had a bit of a bump, stopped and swapped details of course but not sure how its likely to go. came off M60 on slip road and theres two lanes to go around onto M67, i was in left hand side of the two (video shows markings on road) went to go around the lane (stayed in lane) and unfortunately someones come from the 3rd lane and tried to go straight on - straight into side of the car not sure how insurance is likely to view it to be honest (especially as its wife insurance as named driver) the only other detail is that
  17. Purchased a car in May on finance, car was £5k so not a small amount (7.2k after all finance is paid over 3 years - sub prime) I arranged the finance and was given a list of approved garages I could pick a car from. Went to see the car, signed the paperwork and it was delivered to me on the 21st May. I found out after buying the car it had a reconditioned gearbox and made the finance company aware of it - I was not happy. Anyway, a week ago I noticed the coolant looked weird, it had gearbox oil in it. I have taken it to two local trusted garages and neither will touch it. The last garage
  18. Hi all, I'd appreciate some help/advice regarding the above please. On 29th September, I parked in a Euro Car Parks location. I paid by phone, and have the receipt/proof of purchase from 14:31 to 17:31 on that date (£3.20; £3 for parking plus the 20p service charge for using the phone service). According to their CCTV, I entered the car park at 14:13. I remember spending quite some time driving round waiting for a space, found one but re-parked (I couldn't get out; it was clearly left as everybody else had that issue!) so it took some time for somebody to leave. I now understand t
  19. I bought a Mercedes GL a couple of years ago from a garage who sold me a GOLD Car warranty. My Mercedes GL has a broken Front Diff and I have called in A1 approved to make a claim and they have REJECTED is sighting that it is 'general wear and tear'. The garage has confirmed to me that the part is deemed a a mechanical failure and premature in it's failing and NOT general wear and tear. I also contacted the car sales garage I purchased the vehicle from and they confirmed that the part if a mechanical failure. The garage have been in contact with A1 Approved to go over the br
  20. Evening. First I apologise for literally signing up to the forum and asking advice. I am unsure of what to do next. I am from Northern Ireland (UK), I traveled to the south of England to purchase a car off a small used car dealer on the 26/1/19. He has roughly 14 cars for sale at the minute. It is a 2010 Volvo C30 automatic/powershift. Full history with only 1 previous owner and 50k miles, cost me just over £5k. On the face of it the car it is very well presented, good bodywork, service history etc. 3 month warranty assist 'gold cover'. The first issue was on the 27/01/19. I wa

  22. Saw my car with a clamp on it this morning and found out it was due for non payment of a PCN which I appealed against. Now i never received the council's response to my appeal and the only letter i recently received was on the Wednesday ( which i was told by the enforcement office, was hand delivered! which I think was posted via royal mail) The letter from the bailiffs stated i owe £200 as the for the PCN and court an legal fee due immediately. I was actually going to response to their letter today, but then saw the car clamped and i was charged £438 which had to be paid
  23. My wife confessed to me today that she had been in prang last Thursday, and now our insurance company have emailed saying: “We’ve been told that your vehicle was involved in an incident on 13 December 2018. At the moment we have the following information about the incident: Location Description: xxxxx. Your Vehicle: xxxx. We have tried to call you to clarify these allegations but we have been unable to reach you. We need you to call us on xxxxx. It is important that we speak to you urgently. If we don’t hear from you within the next 5 days and the information provided to us by the third party
  24. Please can you guys advise me what I can do. The Third party insurance making it very difficult and seem like they are looking for ways not to pay. If this is the case I will be liable for the costs, which would set me back in life. Background 1.I had a collision, and claimed for the damage to my car personal injury. (it was non-fault but the Third party claimed 50/50). The case went one. 2. Third Party gave me a cheque for half on non-prejudice basis. The day they sent this, My solicitor took the hire car back from me. 3. Cheques take some time to clear, However I
  25. Hi, I entered the Damside Street Car Park in Lancaster on 09/09 2018 at 11:57:47 with a 5 years old daughter in distress. While my partner took care of her I had to go around to find a place where to change money because I didn't have enough loose change to pay for a parking ticket at the ticket machine. Therefore I bought a parking ticket valid for 1 hour at 12:10 (just over two minutes after the 10 minute grace period finished). I left the car park at 12:13:02. In total, I stayed there for less than 16 minutes but purchased a ticket allowing me to stay for 1 hour (plus the 1
