    Anyone had a ticket from premier parking solutions?
    We have had one from premier parking solutions.
    Went to the parking ticket machine to get a free ticket for 90mins, was gone form car for 2mins, got back to find a ticket for £70 within 7 days or £100

    can this be ignored?

    thanks

    Hi,Yes do not pay them or contact them
    A member of my family got a ticket from them just over a Year ago now starting at £70 for a quick payment or £100 after 14 days
    We ignored it and they got the owners details from the DVLA
    We sent them a template letter and a copy of the valid ticket,and their response was to hand us over to one of their partner companys,Valley Enforcement who sent us an invite to pay them £130
    We ignored this and the handed us over to their Partner Company,CCS Collect who sent us a few nasty threatining letters and the final was a notice of a 72 hour home visit.
    This was recieved at the end of October last year and no contact since
    Premier Parking solutions have been getting alot of bad press in the town where we live,a 3 week article and now a local MP is trying to speak to them but the refuse to answer any questions

    They are not going to waste fuel driving all the way to your house just to be told to sod off.

    Carry on ignoring!

    I have just received my first ever PPC - thanks to all for sound advice.

    I will keep all letters related to this and post it on this forum - I also vow to inform other people of these scamming ne'erdowells at every opportunity.

    The exact same thing is happening to me right now. I received a parking ticket in Crawley in July 2011 for 75.00 and was parked for 5 mins. I have appealed it 3 times now to Valley Enforcement who have written back refusing to waiver the fine. I have now recvd a letter from CCS on behalf of Premier Parking Solutions. I rang and spoke with someone there who has advsd I have to take this up further with PPS as CCS are only acting on their behalf (all v. confusing - I think that's the idea?!) Do I just ignore this now and hope it will all go away? I am slightly worried as the correspondence from CCS was actually sent to my Grandmothers house which is my old address and the last thing I'd want is someone turning up there? I have been trying to appeal this in what I feel is the right way rather than ignoring them but reading this forum am wondering if just ignoring them now will make them give up or have I made it worse for myself by previously contacting these people and disputing so many times? Help!

    missbh, just to put your mind at rest. This is not a FINE, it's an unenforceable invoice. Nobody will turn up at anyone's house. Please don't confuse powerless debt collectors with proper bailiffs. The latter would only come on the scene in the very, very unlikely event that it case goes to court, you lose and then you don't pay whatever the judge orders. So relax, don't worry and don't contact these clowns again.
    What part of "A whop bop-a-lu a whop bam boo" don't you understand?

    Thank you for the advice. I am still slightly unsettled but will wait this out and ignore them from now on and hopefully they will give up...

    missbh,, please dont worry, doesnt matter what you have done/not done so far,, now this is what you do from now on,,,oh, yes,, you have guessed it in one,,,ignore,,,they prey on the vulnerable and honest folk trying to con them out of their hard earned money,,,do not give it to them,relax,feet up,glass of wine, keep coming back here for reassurance if you need it.

    Missbh, nobody is telling you to do something that we have not done ourselves. I routinely ignore threatening letters from private parking parasites and like everybody else, have not been taken to court. The letters are designed to scare you, they have no legal validity.

    Thanks cb1979. Real cases like yours, where you come back and post and prove the advice given on this site works is very useful.

    Having also received a ticket for premier parking solutions at the start of the year I followed all the sound advice posted on this site and just filed the numerous letters I was sent under B. 1. N! The last one I received was the begging letter offering me a reduced fine of £65 which I also filed straight under B.1.N and have not heard a thing since. So MissBH and all the others who have received these notices do not worry nobody will come knocking on your door. Just do as I did every time another letter came from these comedians which was to laugh my head off as this has just cost them more postage and administration costs which they are never going to get back!!

    Exactly the same for me to the last begging letter. All started in June this year and despite their assurances I haven't been hung, drawn or even quartered!
    Nothing but empty threats and utter nonsense. In like minded spirit I'm going to send them a Xmas card wishing them the worst of times.
    If anyone is new to this forum and is wondering whether ignoring PPS works, then let me absolutely assure you it does.

    Welcome to MSE, and congratulations on doing the right thing. You'll get a bunch of increasingly hysterical and threatening letters from various bodies claiming some kind of authority. But since you have now read up on it all, you will, no doubt, be filing them in the bin.

    Got a Parking Charge Notice from these chimps. Now just waiting on the outcome of whatever they have for me. Don't know if the rules & regs are all the same still. Hopefully all these companies get liquidated or something less pleasant
