    • I received a Claim Form issued on 19 Jul 2021. The claimant is ParkingEye Limited.    The alleged offence took place on 22/10/2019. The particulars of claim read as follows:   "Claim for monies outstanding from the Defendant in relation to a Parking Charge (reference xxxxxx/xxxxxx) issued on 25/10/2019. The signage clearly displayed throughput University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff - Staff 4, Heath Park, Cardiff, CF14 4XW states that this is private land, managed by ParkingEye Ltd, and that it is subject to terms and consitions, including auhotisation being required for parking, by which those who park agree to be bound (the contract). ParkingEye's ANPR system captured vehicle xxxxx entering and leaving the site on 22/10/2019, and parking without authorisation. Pursuant to Sch 4 of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012, notice has been given to the registered keeper, making them liable for the Parking Charge payable upon breach."   As they claim the PCN was issued in October 2019, I do not recall receiving anything in the post. I did receive a Final notice of Debt Recovery from dcbl, demanding £140. However, it had no reference on the letter so I just ignored it. I logged on to ParkingEye's portal to access photographic evidence and did not manage to find the complete PCN, however, there were just two pictures of the car with a time stamp (please see the attached files). I have copied the parking charge details from ParkingEye's website:   Parking charge details Parking Charge Reference: xxxxxx Vehicle Registration Number: xxxxxx Contravention date/time: 22/10/2019 19:41:52 Contravention location: University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff - Staff 4 Location address: Heath Park, Cardiff, CF14 4XW Stay duration: 0 hours 30 minutes Allowed duration: 0 hours 10 minutes Status: Open Outstanding balance: £155.00 (Please allow 24 hours after payment for it to be reflected on the balance)   I do not recall parking there, however I may have entered the car on multiple occasions on the day to turn the car around.   I visited the car park yesterday to take some pictures (please see the second attached file)   I have completed the AOS on moneyclaim.gov.uk   I am looking to file my defence based on the following points: The photographic evidence supplied by the claimant does not prove the car parked in the above mentioned car park. It just shows the front and the back of the car with two different time stamps. The notice which states that it is a staff car park is located right at the end of the car park, which is not noticeable as you approach the car park and the board seems fairly new to me, the claimant has not provided any proof to suggest that it was there when the alleged alleged offence took place? As they have allowed a 10 minute grace period, a £70 charge for 20 minutes is unreasonable.   Any advice would be much appreciated!! Thanks a lot.

    • Just need a bit of clarification on this. I run my own online business so I think I've got it right, but just good to have some clarification. I bought some items via ibidder auction site. Typically trade and liquidated items for sale there.  The items were men's fragrances and as I gather, auctioneers skip out of a load of the legal consumer right act jargon (from what I recall). Anyway. Several of these fragrances arrived smashed to bits. I logged it with the auction house with all photo's and evidence, and the staff responding even agreed with me that it was clearly damaged in transit.  Anyway, rather than refund me right away or ask me to return said damaged items to get a refund (as should happen right? After all, they pay insurance for their own benefit, to protect themselves as the sender), they put a claim in without refunding me. It's like they have been waiting for compensation to pay me, and if that didn't happen, it's no money for me.  To stop this getting long, the courier refused the claim because the items they sent were prohibited. Terms state anything made partly of wholly of glass won't be compensated and even so, fragrance rules is no more than 4 per parcel (they sent me around 10). Of course that's not my fault, they are responsible for shipment of goods and if they choose to cut corners, then regardless of it being trade lots, that's on them, not me. They've breached compensation terms of the courier and yet because of them not getting compensation, they wont give me my money back, even though they agreed from the evidence that items were clearly damaged in transit.  My thoughts on this (please tell me if I'm wrong): First port of call as they aren't forthcoming via emails is to put the pressure on them. Truthful bad reviews on sites like trustpilot will surely make them want to do the right thing? (That step is already done, by all means I'm happy to hear that I was wrong or it was stupid).   If that fails then it's down to an LBA, not just for the amount lost out on but also for loss of value of other items in the package (glass, liquid damage to those items reducing the value) and reasonable hours lost where instead of putting into my own business, I've been dealing with them.    The sum is low, some £50 or so. Yet it's the principal. I have to deal with customers day in, day out and if I cut corners by not fully insuring shipments, then it's me who takes the brunt and has to refund the customer anyway, so why should another businesses risk mean I've lost out?

Electric shower running into a bath with the plug in.

Topped up with water heated in a kettle or stove-top saucepan? (Caution : scald risk!! Both from moving volumes of hot water, not properly mixing the water in the bath, but also adding too much hot water).

 

I'm not sure turning the gas off to save on the standing charge is the economy you wanted unless you had a plan, if you still need 100 L of 40 degree C water ......

 

Bath at a friends? Are there Changing facilities & a shower at work?

 

How do you think they used to have the old fashioned bath in the tub placed on the floor in houses?

Some great suggests. Get the largest bowl you've got, fill it up with water from the kettle until it's full. A towel and your on your way, it's carried out in hospitals all the time.

 

Not ideal, but works, tried and tested by nurses throughout the generations.

 

Also it's eco-friendly. Also you have overestimated the number of litres, the requirement would be 80.

[ee that's nowt, when aa was a lad down 't pit n we shared tin ba" wi' 't neighbours, . . . ]

 

If "off permanently" means you've had the meter removed, I hope you've had the landlord's permission.

 

Why did you not simply move to a "no standing charge" supplier? The switch takes just a few minutes.

where is there a no standing charge" supplier? i asked most suppliers. they all charge 26p per day whether i use any gas or not, and thats a new thing that started in jan 2014 which is unacceptable bcause its tripled my bill

Some of the suppliers offer a 'non standing charge tariff'. Google 'gas non standing charge tariff'.

I chose them due to flexible payment choices plus they are non profit making; therefore, one would hope, more likely to treat customers fairly. So far I have no complaints.

 

But I'm confused - you said your gas is off permanently : doesn't that mean you've already had the meter removed?

its due to be removed but maybe i'll change supplier

 

why are ebico non profit making ? until jan 2014 british gas used to take the standing charge only when the gas was being used, so they wouldnt make a profit if no gas was used. ie. if i put 5 pound on the meter it would stay 5 pound without reducing by 26p per day as it does now with most suppliers

its not possible to use a kettle for 80 liters bcause it takes at least 5 minutes to heat 2 litres so by the time the last 2 litres has heated up the 1st lot of water will have got cold.

I was not suggesting you heat 80 litres using a kettle. I was just stating that to fill a bath 80 litres would be sufficient.

 

All you need is 2/3 litres in a large bowl, wet the towel and wash yourself.

In all honesty, this is your own problem.

 

You seem to be cutting your nose off despite your face.

 

SURELY, even thinking of boiling 40 kettles to generate 100 lts of water is just pain stupid and costly when you could pay 26PENCE a day saving all the needless hassle.

26p per day is too much compared to what i used to pay from the same supplier. yes i may change supplier.

boiling kettles wasnt my idea

Yes it wasn't your idea. Many ppl have been upset by the charge, so it isn't only "your" problem. You are wrong, though, to say you used to pay a s.c. only when you used gas. There was no s.c. at all.

 

You asked about ebico's not making a profit. In fact I should have stated that they operate a not-for-profit business model. Hope that's clearer for you. It is explained on their website.

 

Whether ebico or the other no-s.c. suppliers serve pre-payment meter users I do not know. I hadn't realised this was your situation. No doubt you can check on this for yourself.
