    • no ofcourse not it's all hot air hoping to mug you.
    • Bang as in error popped up.   The gearbox service ...nope , so service advisor things its done but not noted on the invoice they have. It is on a job card that's locked in another advisors draw thats locked and he is away for a week.     more bad news. They have checked the unit and its £3500 to replace. Sales will not authorised it and servicing/ aftersales will not on the basis sales knew about it before selling it.  
    • didn't remember what wasn't done correctly until i had read BA's earlier notes i found but i knew it couldn't have been correct.   well done
    • Well if you have DSAR to CIFAs and Hitachi and cant get anywhere then you can either go to the FSO and raise a complaint or CIFAS Consumer Affairs Team as outlined in the link I have provided.
    • Ok, so read BF's post #7 above with a view to drafting a letter to give the installer a final warning that the delays so far are not acceptable and time is now of the essence. Accordingly you require them to commence works within 7 days or you consider them to be in breach of your agreement and will seek a full refund under s.75 CCA 1974.   Post a draft here before sending, by which time I hope BF will have had a look back in on your case.   Do you have any idea of the likely time the installation was to take.

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Good evening,


My first post here ...



1 Date of the infringement 20/06/2018


2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 16/07/2018 reminder - never received any previous notices


3 Date received 18/07/2018


4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [y/n?] Y


5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Y


6 Have you appealed? {y/n?] post up your appeal] Y

(...) 19/07/2018 09:35:22 There was a traffic light failure on the exit of car park and I was stuck in the car park for more than 90 minutes trying to leave the premises after some shopping at B&Q which lead to overstay. The letter dated 16/07/2018 is the first I have received regarding the case. (...)


Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up Y

(...) Thank you for your correspondence relating to your Parking Charge Notice (PCN). .......


The PCN was issued and the signage is displayed in compliance with The British Parking Association’s Approved Operator Scheme Code of Practice and all relevant laws and regulations.


Clear signs at the entrance of this site and throughout inform drivers of the 4 hours maximum stay at this site, and it is the driver’s responsibility to ensure that they allow enough time to remove their vehicle from the premises within this time limit. The fact that you were unaware of the restrictions that are in place is not considered a mitigating circumstance for appeal.


In light of this, on this occasion, your representations have been carefully considered and rejected.


We can confirm that we will hold the charge at the current rate of £100.00 for a further 14 days from the date of this correspondence.



You have now reached the end of our internal appeals procedure.


Although we have now rejected your appeal, you may still have recourse to appeal to Parking On Private Land Appeals (POPLA), an independent appeals service. An appeal to POPLA must be made within 28 days of the date of this letter. POPLA will only consider cases on the grounds that the Parking Charge exceeded the appropriate amount, that the vehicle was not improperly parked or had been stolen, or that you were otherwise not liable for the Parking Charge. To appeal to POPLA, please go to their website and follow the instructions. If you would rather deal with this matter by post, please contact our Appeals Office and we will send you the necessary paperwork.


Your POPLA reference number is:xxxxx (...)




7 Who is the parking company? Highview Parking


8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] Crownhill Reatil Park - Plymouth

I would think they'll have a hard job if you prove [twitter?/facebook posts by others? or newspaper etc report] that the lights were faulty.

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..


DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs


NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..


If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Was it ANPR or a ticket on your windscreen? That point is crucial. Also highview have a reputation for claiming they have sent out a NTK, but dont.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..



If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks

I have just looked at the site. The signs I saw was for four hours parking. Has this changed? (the image was from 2017)



They should have allowed the appeal as there was mitigating circumstances that were out of your control and just shows how greedy this company is.



I wouldn't bother appealing to the BPA, just wait for court paper to turn up (which I doubt they will) then you can slay them in court

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

Thanks for replies, really appreciated


I was honest, never thought they reject without even reading ... As this is a minicab I'm the only driver allowed to use the vehicle under my license so I didn't want to complicate things any further ...


It was ANPR and notice in post


Never had to stay there longer than 1 hr before. I'll go back and check signage later

they sent the NTK out too late so you would have been home and dry if you hadnt appealed to them. they dont know it is a minicab or what your insurance contracts say, I can drive your vehicle with your permission and any police officer or squaddie can do so whether you like it or not.

remeber this for the next time.


What the7y say is basically tosh and doesnt address your appeal anyways . What will be telling is seeing the unedit3ed images they captured that day with a laod of cars queueing to get out of their car park. The breach is not queueing but being PARKED and the law is clear on this point so they wont do themselves any good by going to court but they will try and cheat you and all of the other affected motorists out of money that they cant lawfully demand.
