Hi guys I was recently clamped & then towed in a private car park in Brighton. There were signs up, although not particuarly big & covered in text. As I was in a rush I didn't realise...

 

So about 2.5 hours later I came back to find the car missing. I phoned up the company & had to agree to pay to get the vehicle back. There wasn't much I could do at the time with it being about 12.30am & being miles from home so I paid the charge in order to get the vehicle back & avoid racking up further charges.

 

The thing is the sign says that they will come back & tow the vehicle 2 hours after fitting the clamp, looking at the receipt they gave me it states that the car was "detected" at 9.30pm, clamped at 9.45pm & then towed at 11.30pm, so 1 hour 45 mins after the clamping.

 

Therefore as it wasn't 2 hours later is the towing void?

 

 

Thanks

I'd say yes (dependent on the actual signage). But practically they hold the cards and won't give your car back unless you pay.

 

You could attempt small claims court for just the tow fee, and not the clamp charge.

The clamping guide in the stickies can give you some pointers.
