hi all :)

 

im new here and im curious to know where i stand in order of receiving a Euro Car Parks parking ticket for parking my vehicle for more than 2 hours due to being in B&Q designing and picking out a new bathroom, (who would of thought it would take so long) but inevitably it did, and a notice came through over a week later, (offence date 04/05/13 but a week later i was off shore for 23 days from the 10/5/13 till 01/06/13, so when i got home, the "parking fine" was in amongst my stack of mail.

 

so bang goes the special so called offer of £40 and now ive just received a 2nd letter asking for the £70 so now its also stated on the 2nd letter

 

quote "failure to pay the outstanding amount within the time specified will result in Euro Car Parks forwarding the outstanding amount to a debt collection agaency. further charges will apply" unquote

 

 

so i guess my question is, where do i stand on this matter? are these things legal? will i be taken to court? will i have a bad credit rate?

 

 

any info or any forwarding ideas would be very much appreciated :)

Mouse over the word ignore and read the pop up.

 

Or you can simply ignore them.

You could always contact B&Q customer service, they will almost certainly cancel the charge in the circumstances. These companies mislead people into believing that their credit rating can be affected, the reality is that this could only happen if they took you to court an won and you failed to pay at that stage. The chances of this happening are as about remote as me winning the Euro Millions and becoming the Archbishop of Canterbury in the same week.

I agree with crocdoc, Contact b&q manager and get them to validate your purchase, then tell them to jog on!

 

Even if you did not make a purchase they can only do you for civil tresspass and as I understand it, the car park is free for 2 hours, so offer the minimum,(ie £2.00), and if no fees displayed, let them take you to court my friend. :wink:

So, if the store is able to negotiate having the ticket cancelled if you make a purchase, does that mean there might be a "secret clause" in the contract between the PPC and the store. If so, then that's sharp practice, becuase the motorist is not aware of such a clause when he is deemed to accept those T&Cs when they park up.

Most certainly, retailers are fully aware of the implications of allowing this highly questionable industry to have a free hand.

 

I cannot imagine any major company allowing these minor contractors to impact on their core businnes
