    • A mobile phone mine while I was out watching the football with all the lads.
    • Hi,   Stumbled upon this website and I see the general advice is ignore CRS and that they can't do anything but thought I'd make my own post as I'm still anxious and don't want debt collectors to turn up at my parents home.   Facts: - Joined Xercise4less in June, 2017. I paid £11.99/m - Finished uni in July 2019, so I wanted to cancel membership as I was moving back home and the closest X4less gym would be 50miles away.  - I initially put in a freeze request (thinking it's to cancel). When I told my friend he said I need to fill in a different form to cancel the contract. - I was confused so I confirmed this with someone working at the gym. They explained even though my 12m contract has finished, in order to cancel the contract I would have to give 30 days notice using a form online and cancel my DD. - So I completed this online form that same week and canceled my DD a few days later.   * Fast-forward to 20th January 2020 *   - Received a letter (to my parents address) from CSR yesterday (20th). Asking me to pay £213.47 including their fee of £102.50. - I was at work when my parents send a pic of letter. Return address said HGC - a quick google search shows them as Hutchison Global Communications aka Three.  - What did I do next?  Since I didn't have the letter in front of me I asked my parents for the number & reference on the letter. - Then stupidly called CRS thinking its Three and it's regarding my recently cancelled phone contract.   What I told CRS on the phone: - When I found out it was about my cancelled gym contract I explained in detail several times how I correctly cancelled my contract back in July 2019 and I will not be paying the outstanding amount. I didn't even use the gym. I did say I may be open to paying the monthly fee. - Advisor said Harland got my freeze request but nothing else, no proof = you must pay or they will continue to purse me. He also said outstanding amount is not negotiable and me not using the gym is irrelevant. - I asked for Harlands contact details, CRS refused to give it to me because Harlands will not discuss this matter with me.   After 15mins of going around in circles, me explaining what happened and advisor saying I must pay, I finally I said I am not in the wrong here. I filled the form correctly, and it said 'submitted. If their system didn't receive my request it is not my fault and I cannot be held accountable for an error on their part. So I don't agree with the charges and will not pay it and ended the call.   Other info: - CRS said the charge of £213.47 is for membership from October 2019 - Dec 2019 + late fees + CRS fees. - Told the advisor I no longer live at the address they sent the letter to. He asked for new address and I refused to give this out, so they will add an additional £36ish for tracing my new address. - Apparently they sent several letter to my old address but I know they didn't because I still have friends living at that address who would have told me if anything addressed to me came through. - I believe the system didn't acknowledge my cancellation request since a freeze request was in place but that doesn't mean I owe them any money and definitely not £213.47.       Thanks in advance!      
    • Here are the above letters vanquis.compressed.pdf
    • This got me thinking. There are only 4 parking bays on the site. They charge 50p for 1 hour, £1.00 for 2 hours, £1.50 for  3 hours and £2.00 for 24 hours. Yes, £2 for 24 hours! How is this site profitable? Do parking companies run these types of sites with a business model that is focussed more on issuing PCNs that intimidate motorists who lack knowledge of the law into paying up?

Hypothetical Parking in EV charger place

Hi

This really is a hypothetical question, Whilst not trying to outrage the EV owners amongst us, lets say I go to a service station in my diesel car and park in a Tesla EV charging place (Other EV chargers are available) could I get a ticket?

 

I would assume Tesla have come to an agreement with the car park owners to put their equipment on the site, but I would expect it's unlikely that the car park operator would update their signs to say no parking in the Tesla spots without a Tesla etc.

 

I know blue badge / disabled places don't actually have any standing, but they do tend to cover that notion on their signs along with parent and child etc.

 

As I say, hypothetical question only.

Hypothetically, what does the hypothetical signage hypothetically say?

My point was do you think the parking co's will have their act together to actually get enough signage to say you can only park a Tesla at a Tesla point etc etc

 

EDIT: But I'm sure you got that! :)

90% of the time, the PPC's don't even have their act together for form a valid contract for the car parking they do operate. The only way that they'd be able to enforce something along the lines of "Tesla parking only" will be..

 

A) To have staff on the ground and/or (Will cost them too much money and will eat in to their profits as they'd need staff there 24/7 to ever hope to enforce it.)

B) A more complicated ANPR system that will have to be manually checked per index for vehicle make and/or (Will cost them too much money as they'd need to install more cameras and employ staff to check vehicle indexes.)

C) A self ticketing operation. (This would be the only viable option but most of the PPC's (bar the smaller tin-pot outfits) don't like losing control of who's dishing out tickets to who)

 

So, in reality, I don't imagine that they'd ever really try to enforce anything like this, it would hurt their bottom line, and we all know, it's about money not parking. :wink:

It would be a complete money waster for them if they did come out with some way of wording a new contract for Tesla Points.

It's my understanding that a new form of nano crystal electricity is coming in late this year which will automatically recharge Tesla cars without the need for those points.

Hyperthetically I could just do what I did a while back which is park acros's the back of your car...

 

I got an 8m charging cable so it's usually long enough to do that.

 

Got back to find one very angry ford owner and one parking warden that couldn't stop laughing..

Bit it would be obstruction, would it not? And the Police can work with that....

how about we stop playing grandmothers footsteps and you tell us where you have seen an example of what you write about and we can then comment on content when you supply it. As you can see, there are a lot of scenarios that could play out depending on exact circumstance, the simplest being that if you park in a charging point whist going into the shop someone will ask you to move if they need to use the charger
