    Excel parking charge notice

    Excel parking charge notice 11th Sep 17 at 6:45 PM
    Hi all, im simply a new user looking for advice from experienced people.

    i've read through pages and pages and ive not come accross someone with the same issue yet so i need answers and opinions please.

    To cut a long story short ive recieved a parking charge notice from excel parking, upon reading it and becoming infuriated with the extortionate rates i was asked to pay i typed a letter explaining what had happened and why i was unable to pay for the ticket on the day(machine didnt accept new £ coins). In doing so i have written it in the first person saying 'I' a few times implying i was the driver therefore i believe i have now reduced my chances of getting let off. They have declined my appeal saying the hotline ahould have been called or other parking should have been sought for. Im now stuck without a paddle and wanting to know what i do next. I regret writing the appeal without first looking into it and responding with a template document as mentioned in almost every post.

    Do i simply pay the charge or do i have grounds to refuse still?

    Thanks in advance

    Everyone is politely asked to read the newbies FAQ thread near the top of the forum before starting a new thread.

    Go there now and read up on the game you are now caught up in.

    Any appeal to an IPC company is futile.

    So wait and see if they take legal action against you. If they do then come back for advice on defending a claim

    Well Excel are well known for their tricks and capers

    I wonder if this is a new trick to further scam motorists
    by not updating their machines. Let's face it, most £1 coins
    are the new ones.

    You need to take pictures of the signs that mention a hotline

    Were you in a retail park shopping.
    If so, doubt the retailers would be happy with a so called
    parking management company who do not allow legal tender
    to be used and then tell their customers to leave the car park

    Cannot remotely see a court allowing this rubbish from Excel

    If they cannot accept legal tender then the machines
    should state so

    Think how many people have been caught out with this wheeze

    The IPC is a simple waste of time as it is a scammers paradise
    and they will no doubt reject an appeal.

    So, you now wait to see if these scum do anything
    If so come back here for help

    PS: First step for Excel is to use stupid rubbish debt
    collectors which you will IGNORE AND IGNORE AND IGNORE.

    In your case naming the driver does not matter in a case
    where their machines do not accept legal tender and because
    of this, they punish you.

    its called "frustration of contract"

    sit back through the DCA letters and come back if they issue an LBC or an MCOL within 6 years (possibly from B W LEGAL or similar solicitors)

    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    Final demand notice

    Hi guys, thanks for the speedy and informative replies and sorry I was not able to get back to respond. I did as instructed and ignored the IAS appeal letter. Here we are a month later and I've received another letter today.

    This one mentions that they are disappointed that no reply/appeal was given and that they will be pursuing further action if I continue to ignore. They quote the "parking eye ltd vs beavis 2015" case as examples of successful court action and now demand full payment of £100 by the 20th of this month.

    As before, many thanks in advance. I look forward to hearing your replies.

    the motorist ?

    As of your ticket date both £1 coins are legal tender.
    I doubt if there is any signage to say that new £1 coins
    are not accepted.
    It's frustration of contract.

    Excel should know better about Beavis ...... daft lot

    Beavis was all about "unfair charges" not £1 coins.

    Just wait now, you will probably get more "debt collector"
    letters which you ignore.

    If Excel want to take this in front of a judge, that they don't
    take coins of the realm ..... more fool them

    True, thanks for the reply. Ok so I'll expect more letters from Excel themselves? As you say it's nobody's fault but some signage would have been more than expected on their behalf.

    I'll post back once I get the next letter (I'd imagine this will follow shortly after the 20th of this month)

    Many thanks again!
