    Euro parking services 20th Dec 17 at 12:04 PM
    hi all , i recently received a parking ticket from Euro parking services . It was for leaving the site to pick up my 7 year old grandson who was taken ill at a carol concert . The Attendant was extremely rude and kept raising his voice which in turn wound me and my wife up . We did shop in the store and had proof of it . My wife was extremely upset and my grandson was crying , we went into the store to complain and they wouldn't entertain us . I went through the appeals procedure and unsurprisingly they've rejected it as they claim the attendant tried to locate us in store , which is a complete lie as he was busy chatting to people on the car park and ticketing other cars i know this as i saw him doing so . I went to pay this fine and now they want a £1.20 surcharge on top of the fine , the store is LIDL and they are very uncaring/unhelpful . It's not so much the fine as i can accept i'm in the wrong to an extent but what grandparent wouldn't do that ! It's the attitude of their staff, the store ,the surcharge and the fact they would never have upheld the appeal . Rant over - Merry christmas to all (except LIDL and Euro parking services)

    Welcome to the world of scammers and ignorant monkeys

    The staff in Lidl are only shelf fillers and you should go
    to the top ... THE CEO

    Euro have a habit of employing thug type people, probably
    ex road sweepers.

    I hope you have not paid these cowboys

    sadly after reading another thread he gives the same stock reply it's nothing to do with them . They claim it's a retail park , there's only a travelodge and a LIDL and nothing else . Vermin are relatively useful these people are single celled slime !

    Get that email sent, along with the receipt for the day and any back copies of receipts/bank/cc statements showing you as a regular customer of Lidl.

    In addition, I!!!8217;d lay it on thick about the appalling attitude of the parking goon and the unseasonal response from the staff at this time of Christmas goodwill. Tell him that the local and national Press have a growing interest in the shocking tactics of the private parking industry and you will be in the process of contacting your local newspaper immediately after Christmas if this charge remains.
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.

    If that’s the case, you may not get the desired response from the Lidl CEO. But he needs to know about the negative effect the PPC might be inflicting on his business (he pays rent to the landowner and might be able to influence them), and he also needs to be aware of the attitude of his staff towards a customer.

    You now might need to try to find out who engaged the PPC and complain to them.

    No you won't. You won't be paying anything. Please tell your wife from one woman (me) to another, that this is not something to pay. Some of us have collected these for fun in the past!

    They can always be cancelled - lay it on thick with the Retail Park owners/Managing Agents in a complaint email, saying how upset the whole family are to be accused of lying when the occupants of the car were shopping the whole time, and the driver getting money out to spend is a good thing in retail parks (all the time the passengers were in the shop).

    Really rant, make it a really angry complaint saying your family will never ever shop there again and what do they think they are playing at, allowing an ex-clamper firm loose in the car park, to harass and pursue for 3 figure sums (and sue) shoppers who can vote with their feet and either shop elsewhere or online!

    Google the place to find who runs it. Not just the Lidl CEO, you want the owner/agents.

    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.
