    Parking Charge Notice from Care Parking at Aldi

    Parking Charge Notice from Care Parking at Aldi 14th Mar 17 at 9:46 PM
    Hi All,

    Was just looking for a bit of guidance if at all possible.

    I have been shopping at Aldi for some time and have parked on their premises for numerous long stays, and have never received any charges whatsoever.

    I have recently been issued with a parking charge notice from a company called Care Parking, the charge being "Exceeded Maximum Stay Period", which is cited as 18 minutes over the parking allowance.

    I called Aldi to try and get the charge dropped, explaining that I was shopping on the complex, which also has numerous other retail outlets. Aldi informed me that the managing company of this car park had changed hands and been recently taken over by Care Parking. Aldi were surprised their customers had not been notified of the changeover, but noted that Care Parking were not working with them, but the landowner instead.

    Aldi recommended that I get in touch with Care Parking to explain that I was shopping in their store and not misusing the car park. I have evidence from online banking that I made purchases in both Aldi and Pound Stretcher, although the amounts spent were quite low. I would have no doubt been in other stores on the complex as well.

    I'd just like some advice on how to move forward with this,

    Many thanks,

    can you confirm this was an ANPR type ticket with photos of you arriving and leaving?

    all the ANPR equipment was removed from site when PE moved out

    if anpr was used , then the equipment would have had to be re installed in ALDIs property ,

    as ALDI would not get anything apart from grief , I think its unlikely that it has been re installed
    Have YOU had to walk 500 miles?
    Were you advised to walk 500 more?
    You could be entitled to compensation.

    Yes ANPR was used, they have photo/video of the car entering and leaving the retail park, at the only place you can, i.e. 90 degrees to the right of the photo above. I'm assuming that Care Parking "manage" the parking on the whole retail park and have agreed with someone that they can install the ANPR equipment? Thanks

    Yes the fault lies with the managing agents of the retail park (usually easy to find by Googling).

    DON'T read old advice to ignore, unless in Scotland/NI.
