I went to work this morning, and unusually there were no spaces to park in in the usual carpark to the rear of my works building. So I drove round the corner and found a space in a nearby carpark. I thought it looked quite empty so I took a good look round to be sure that there was nothing preventing me parking there.

When I returned to my car so that I could pick up my son from school, there was a clamp on it, and some signs had appeared. I read the sign and it said that you must have a valid ticket to be able to park there. I walked around the whole car park, and found one small sign hidden round the corner that said club members only. But no where that a 'valid ticket' could have been purchased or obtained.

Now i'm £140 out of pocket just to have my car released, plus the £15 in taxi fare for the round trip to pick up my son from school.

The receipt I got for the payment says I have 7 days to appeal in writing to the company address, but I have no idea how this works or what to put in it?

Surely they cant be allowed to fleece drivers like this by putting up signs as when they feel like it???

Any advice greatefully received.

You can try appealing if you like but I can assure you that your appeal will be unsuccessful!


You need to identify the landowner and then send botht eh landowner and clamper a "letter before action" giving them 7 days to return your money. After that you need to lodge a claim to the small claims county court.


I think Al27 has some more info in clamping. If he's along shortly I'm sure he'll add his wisdom.
