  1. Hello All I received a PCN/NTK on 08/10/2017 from “Excel Parking” for parking the car at Peel Center Stockport. The PCN/NTK letter shows: Issue Date (posted): 03/10/2017 PCN Ref No: xxxxxxx VRM (reg no): xxxxxxx Vehicle Make: xxxxxxx Vehicle Model: xxxxxxx Contravention Date: 16/09/2017 Contravention time: 11:15 Duration of Stay: 36 minutes I was unware I had to pay for being in the car (waiting) for short time as my wife took my daughter to use the toilet while I was waiting in the car until they return from the toilet. The notice says if payment is made by 17/10/2017 then it will be reduced to £60. Could you please help me how I can appeal and with a draft letter to Excel Parking appealing against the PCN/NTK. Please let me know if you need further information. Thank you very much for the help...
  2. Hello, This site is great - thanks for all the information. I got a PCN from the Peel Centre car park in Stockport. I didn't even know it was pay and display because the signage is so bad and it was dark when I entered/left. I would have definitely bought a ticket had I realised as I was there for less than an hour (57 mins exactly). Usual conditions - pay £60 now or £100 later. Have no intention to pay but advice seems to be now to appeal? I think my grounds will be inadequate signage and unreasonable charge considering I owe them only for one hours parking. Can anyone give me some advice on how to word this in terms that sound more legally competent/aware. I have to appeal by 14th December. I am aware that there has been quite a few successful appeals against PCNs issued at the Peel Centre so if anyone has appealed and succeeded I'd love to hear how you did it. Also worth noting - I also got a PCN last June from Excel for parking at The Square in Chorlton (I wasn't actually parked, I was dropping something off so my partner never left the car - so therefore waiting?). I never received the initial correspondence about this, only the legal letters from BW Legal that started arriving in October this year. Stupidly I called up the legal department once they threatened taking me to court (realise now I should still have ignored perhaps). I informed them I had received no initial correspondence and as a result they have placed my account on hold for 30 days while they wait on Excel to re-send the original information (apparently Excel have no time limits to do this in! Ironic huh!). My plan is then to say that I want to be able to go through the standard appeal process as I never had the opportunity in the first place. If anyone has any advice on this situation too I would appreciate that. Thanks all, appreciate it lots. Sarah.
  3. I received 2 parking charge notices from Excel Parking for alleged contraventions of their conditions. The first was for parking on 15/05/2017 and the PCN issue date was 06/06/2017 the second was for parking on 17/5/2017 and the PCN issue date was 05/06/2017. There is absolutely no question that the appropriate tickets were purchased, displayed correctly and we did not overstay their duration. On one occasion my partner purchased the ticket and the other I did, so it would be doubtful if we inputted the wrong registration number although as the last letter of our registration is O it may have been possible that we both inputted a 0 (zero) I appealed these PCN’s (and may have implicated the driver i.e. stating the purchaser of the ticket) but they have both been rejected on the basis that no similar registration numbers were found in their system at that time. Their ‘independent’ appeals service is IAS who I believe from internet searches are an ‘in house’ company which rarely uphold appeals. I have now requested logs from the machine as I have now discovered (from another forum) that other people have had the same issue during that period in May 2017. I now have only a few days until the 14 day dead line for appeals is up before they increase the charge from £60 to £100 for each notice. If I can get any help on this forum which will help me sort this situation I will happily donate half the saving i.e. £60 to the forum fund.
  4. Hi everyone, I parked my car at the Peel Centre in Stockport to pickup an item which was reserved for me in Argos. Its my first visit at the Peel Centre and no doubt will be the last. Upon arrival there were no visible signs or parking machines around the perimeter so I gathered the parking was free. I went to the store to pickup the item but was told it was reserved by their other store just around the corner. The staff asked if I parked my car here, I replied yes and so she advised me to leave the vehicle here and its only a 5 minute walk. I took her advice but didn't return until an hour later after experiencing a small queue at the store and receiving a phone call from a friend. When I returned back, there was no ticket on my windscreen and so I left the Peel Centre. 12 days later I received a PCN from Excel parking via post demanding payment of £60 within 14 days. I contacted Argos and asked to speak to the store manager but was told there was nothing could be done which was disappointing. Since then, following the advice I received from my friends after the experience they've had from other parking companies, I continued to ignore all letters and correspondence relating to Excel. Currently I'm at the stage in which I received a letter from Wright Hassall solicitors demanding final payment of £180 within 14 days or else a CCJ will be imposed upon me which will have impact on future loans and credit rating. I have searched a lot of forums relating to this matter and the majority of the people on here suggest to keep ignoring them since Wright Hassall has no grounds to issue a CCJ since their client is ZZPS Ltd who are debt collectors and not Excel Parking. Although it might sound crazy but do I continue to ignore Wright Hassall if this is the case? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
  5. Hi, On the 18th Jan 15 I pulled into the Excel car park at Stockport as my baby had been sick, I didn't park in a space and i stayed in the car whilst my sister went to get my daughter something to put on while I cleaned her up. I then got a letter in the post from excel saying I owed £100 as had been there more than 15 minutes. I did nothing after taking someone's advise and heard nothing. I received a final notice letter from BW legal this week and I panicked so I called them to try and challenge the fact that it had almost been 18 months. Then I found this site, have i shot myself in the foot by contacting them?
  6. Hello there, i need help with a notice from Excel parking. About 2 weeks ago i went to Peel centre Stockport , i stayed in car and my wife went into a shop. I was under the impression that as iam staying in car i dont have to buy a parking ticket ( i know its my fault as signs were there). But today i received a parking charge notice of £60 for 40 mins stay by Excel parking. Iam not sure as it looks unfair to slap such a big fine for 40 mins parking. This is my 1st parking fine in 14 years of driving i dont know how to deal with it. Please advise what to do should i make appeal against it or should i ignore this as someone told me that Parking Excel are not allowed to enforce this charge. Thanks a lot.
  7. HELP I have lost my appeal with popla and now Excel are threatening me with county court judgment What shall I Do?
  8. On the 29th of July, myself my son and his partner drove to the peel centre in stockport and parked next to nandos. My son paid for the ticket with cash and placed it on my dashboard. On the 8th of August I received a letter from Excel parking telling me I had to pay £60 as I didn't purchase a ticket. The only explanation I have is my son is dyslexic and might have entered a wrong character In the ticket machine. If this is the case (which I am positive it is) I don't feel I should have to pay the fine as this was simply a human error and I still paid them for a ticket. I have explained this to them and they don't care. Where should I go from here? Can they take me to court? thanks in advance for any help maureen
