    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

    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)
