It just says

...appeals should be adjudicated within 28 days.

...in the event your appeal is unsuccessful we will provide you with appropriate details enabling you to lodge an appeal to the IAS.

appeals can be submitted by email or online to athena parking online or by post."

 

If you have received any other correspondence, please mention it here

nothing else received

 

the other thing i wanted to mention is that apart from not having the receipt im sure the notice stated free 1.5 hours parking and i was parked about 60 minutes

get a picture of the signage there and we will advise.

 

 

You have the bests part of a month before the parking co gets shirty

so plenty of time to do things right rather than hurry and get it wrong.

 

They are members of the IPC so your appeal will be rejected and you wont get an independent appeal either.

 

 

Again, not a problem a long as you use the correct arguments in the first place so they cant just ignore or steamroller you.

another sign says " controlled parking area/ private land, terms and conditions apply, see notice in car park".

 

a friend has advised to write to lidl and tell them I lost the receipt and didn't know or remember to register the car details at checkout. A while ago someone I know got a ticket for exceeding the allowed time at freeport braintree, wrote ot Braintree Management and they waived it, but they were able to produce receipts as evidence of shopping; i have no receipts.

I honestly don't understand your response; you seem to be asking about how I paid for my shopping? I don't see how it is relevant to my situation if I paid in cash or card. I usually use cash for small purchases.

 

I'm here to ask if Athena have a right to claim £90 from me for parking in that car park because I don't have a shopping receipt or other proof of payment.

Hello there.

 

I think dx might be asking if you paid with your debit card so that you can prove that you shopped in Lidl, as you don't have your receipt. We're just trying to help you fight this. :)

 

And no, they probably don't have the right to charge you money, but if you tell the guys what they ask, we'll be able to help you.

every purchase at Lidl is logged on their computer system so if you can name some of the items you bought and the time you were there Lidl can look you up as a customer and cancel the charge as you were a customer.

 

The end result of your enquiry here would, we assume to get the thing cancelled, not just complain about the unfairness of it all and then go away and pay up.

 

 

There are many ways of defeating these spurious claims and getting the store to cancel is one of the easiest as it doesnt involve the bandit parking co at all.

 

That is why we ask about your payment method, make it quicker to get the charge cancelled if you can show a card payment rather than the trawl through the shopping list but as said, they can do that.

 

Contacting Athena first will mean that when Lidl speak to them to get the ticket cancelled Athena will tell Lidl that they are processing your appeal and to leave it to them. They then will not cancel the ticket and you will have lost the easist route to success.

 

I honestly don't understand your response; you seem to be asking about how I paid for my shopping? I don't see how it is relevant to my situation if I paid in cash or card. I usually use cash for small purchases.

 

I'm here to ask if Athena have a right to claim £90 from me for parking in that car park because I don't have a shopping receipt or other proof of payment.

 

their sign isnt a contract, t has no core terms, it is what is called an "invitation to treat" at best and you can either ignore it or make further enquiries as to waht they are offering and then decide if you want to accept the contractual terms.

 

Bit like a sign in a shop window saying 50% off most items. If you go into the shop to ask aboyut what is in the sale you are not obliged to buy anything and the shop cant charge you £90 for not buying something.

 

Nor do they have to sell you a suit at half price just because something else is in the sale. The offer and acceptance bit doesnt start with the sign, it starts when you ask about a specific item the shopkeeper tells you about it and indicate you agreement to purchase if the terms are right.
