    PCN & Loan Car From Dealership

    PCN & Loan Car From Dealership 19th Apr 17 at 11:50 PM
    Evening All

    Today a PCN has been issued on a car that is currently on loan from our local dealership as one of our cars is in for some work.

    I have read the asterix point on lease car/hire car and was wondering do I follow the same process, and wait or appeal now?

    We are not sure how long we will have the loan car (possibly only a day or two more). This was a windscreen PCN issued via Excel Parking Services, who I believe are a IPC member so the appeal time is before 21 days (as per the newbie FAQ's).

    Do we inform the dealership (Mini) when we pick up our own car that the PCN was issued and explain we are contesting it and not to pay any charges/fees on our behalf as we are not willing to pay, but to forward our details on to Excel as the hirer/loanee??

    I also believe that the claim for the PCN is very dubious as it is for parking in a prohibited/restricted area and the photos (their own evidence) does not show any restricted area.

    Your help will be greatly appreciated!

    Cheers

    Matt

    Just a quick update - the car has gone back to the Mini dealership today - told them about the PCN and once Excel contact them (post appeal) to forward our details are the people who were responsible for the car at the time. Made sure I didn't say who was driving in case inadvertently they passed that on!!

    So just need to put the appeal in - please any advice when to do this would be appreciated!!

    Cheers

    I would appeal now, in case the car is actually on lease or some idiot gets the nTK and pays it anyway, regardless of what you said.

    Appeal saying this is a loan car and you were the hirer/lessee as defined in the POFA. Use the usual template after that (removing 'I am the registered keeper' of course).
    PRIVATE PCN in England/Wales? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT

    Click on the trail, top of this page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    DON'T read old advice to ignore, unless in Scotland/NI.
