HX Car Park Management / Gladstones Salterhebble, Halifax

Recommended Posts

Hi All

Have stumbled across this site by accident and having had a trawl through you all do an amazing job. So good and so much resource on here that I can see the wood for the trees. Partially because I am part way through the case so not sure what to respond to first.

Anyway I have just recieved the following email:

From: 

Date: 04/03/2019 4:16 pm (GMT+00:00)

To: mark 

Subject: HX Car Park Management Limited -v- D /  

Dear Mr 

Thank you for your correspondence.

We attach our Client's evidence they wish to rely on at this stage, in line with the relevant pre-action protocol we request you do the same.

 

In the absence of this within 30 days of this email we will issue legal proceedings against you without further notice.

 

When the question of costs arises, this correspondence will be bought to the Court's attention as unreasonable behaviour. 

Kind Regards


P M
Litigation Assistant

I had previously logged my mitigation on their website (I had not responded to their previous "invoices")

The main extent of my mitigation was that I had pulled over from the main road as my son was suffering a nose bleed.

The car was stationary for 5 mins (as identified by their own evidence), no one left the car, and in my view quite crucially and again as demonstrated by their own evidence there was a double yellow line and a hatched area in front of it.

I had stopped short of this yellow line and hatched area as this was clearly an area not to stop.

I didnt see any signs (i was dealing with my sons nose bleed) but would have expected had the whole are been no parking why wasnt the whole area hatched and why were the double yellow lines not running the full length.

I have also requested under GDPR that they remove all data relating to me as they have no grounds to hold it.

In rejecting my request on the grounds that they have "compelling" evidence they have followed up with the attached bundle.

I returned that I believed they didnt and no reasonable person would when looking at their own evidence (i.e presence of double yellows/and hatched area infront of where I stopped).

I also requested that they no longer communicate with me and to take the issue to court where I will be happy to defend my case.

I also pointed out that any communications short of direct court action will be considered by myself as harassment.

However they have ignored that and are now demanding I share "my evidence".

Surely Im not obliged to do that until court proceedings are issued which I am happy for them to do. 

Any anyone can give me will be greatfully recieved.

CHEERS

Hello and welcome to CAG.

I've had to remove your bundle because you need to redact it. You've left your name, address, car reg and probably other stuff. Please remove anything including bar codes, etc that could identify you and repost it. If you're able to reduce it from nearly 7MB it would help, it takes a while to load.

Best, HB

The letter I have is now from Gladstones. I technically didnt appeal and in my note to them I just said "the driver" in expaining the circumstances and why I did not recognise this "invoice". I completed it on their website so I dont have a copy of what I said. I have however just done an SAR so should get everything I completed back.

HX are gladdys favourite client at the moment, they spend a lot on going to court and havent been put off by having to shell out for losing cases as a result of the rubbish advice and strategy used by the solicitors.

as you are new to this I will point out that the owners of Gladstones are the same peopel who own the trade association, the IPC. Now this menas they know what the parking co is supposed to do so i would direct yu to the IPC site so you can loo up what they say about grace periods before a ticket or demand is issued. When you have copied it out you can sue that to go back to gladstones and tell them that you know thye are the same Will and John who run the IPC but seem to be quite happy to encourage ther clients to breach the rules THEY invented just to make a couple of quid writing threatening letters.

also let them know that you know the BPA do enforce their Code of Practice and any honest parking co would have never have issued a PCN in the first place because they would have some sort of quality control in place to prevent such spurious  demands getting as far as the post room. You will be delighted to relieve their client of a wad of money for their unreasonable conduct when you defeat their claim

Once you have the part of their code of practice that mentions grace period then you send  the above to Gladstones and copy it to HX so they know they will be footing the bill for a misadventure rather than making some easy money. this letter also fulfils the pap so they cnat claim you have just . ignored them when the truth is you have not responded as you hold them in contempt

also, you block their emails and you do not email them, proper letters only. Email allows them to harass you for free and abuse the legal process so dont encourage them

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
