    Cancelled PCN from G24 at Homebase

    A family member recently got a mailed Contractual PCN from G24 after parking in a Homebase carpark. They had actually been shopping in store and had a receipt so we decided the best course of action was to speak to the manager. He apologised and said he would email G24 to have it cancelled. He also explained that it was the landowner who employed G24, not Homebase.

    Good result.

    Homebase should tell the landowner that their poodle is affecting their trade.

    Hi guys, reporting another success at McDonalds. Just be adamant and as long as you did not abuse any parking and are a genuine customer you can get it cancelled!,

    Well done! Even after losing at POPLA it's not too late to complain to retailers.

    Definitely, it is never too late. Anyone facing an unfair ticket, id recommend you to try to speak to the retailer first. I did in person and got shut down but after emailing the CEO I was able to actually get somewhere.

    Although, it is nice wasting their time, going through POPLA, losing and then getting it cancelled after they've sent their letters out and paid for POPLA.

    Highview another success - cancelled in 16 mins!!!. Hope you don't mind me posting here.

    To all the wonderful people on here giving advice.

    THANK YOU!

    I received a PCN using APNR cameras at Urban Exchange, it used to be 2 hrs free parking. I've parked there occasionally over the last few years but it is now only 1 hour I believe. I didn't bother to go back and check.

    Undeterred I did loads of research here and to anyone looking here, please please spend time reading the newbies section rather than posting straight away.

    In my research, I have seen lots of posts and many are the same. People just need to take time to read the posts and follow the instructions. Credit to the people continually replying to the same enquiries day in day out.

    Anyway I completed the online form and was simple. Put in reg no. and PCN no. Complete your name address and email.
    Click you were not the driver / don't know who the driver was/incorrectly issued or what ever the last drop down is.
    Click other for reason and copy and paste the blue template with you PCN number in the free text box. It warns you when you click on submit that you haven't attached anything, don't worry.
    I was a little nervous myself thinking they might single me out for using the same template. But they realise we are getting help in here and just fold.

    So, I have seen the 2 hour challenge and would argue that I submitted at 8pm and received an email by 8.16am cancelling the PCN. I reckon that is 16 mins assuming they received this outside of working hours.

    Either way thanks to Coupon Mad and others who give up their time to fight back against these rip off merchants.

    Another successful PCN challenge with Highview.
    😀

    Congrats on having it cancelled. However have you mixed up your a.m. with p.m. because as it stands the cancellation came over 12 hours later?

    Holiday Inn Guildford
    Having read some of the threads on here, I hope that I am not speaking too soon but we had a PCN from Parking Eye for our car being parked at Guildford HI while attending a conference. I wrote and complained to the duty manager and the front of House Manager at HI has just written saying that they have told PE to cancel the charge. Hopefully that's the last I'll hear... I did it by snail mail so I have their printed letter in my hand.

    Haha yes maybe it was a nice try on my part. It's a fair point 8pm and cancelled 8.16am so really 12.16 hours but was thinking I sent it out of hours so from them actually receiving it I reckon they start at 8am in the morning.

    Sufficie to say it's a great result thanks to everyone on here and am grateful for what you all do.

    Euro Parking Services
    I hope I am posting this in the right place. I received a NTK in the post from Euro Parking Services Ltd for being parked outside an allocated bay. In fact, I had pulled out of the parking bay to exit, when a car double parked over the exit, preventing me from exiting. I hooted and asked him to move, and he signalled that he would be a minute. During the time it took for said man to return to his vehicle and me to exit, EPS deemed I was parked outside a bay.. Needless to say, my appeal to them was denied. It was a bit tricky finding out who the land owner was, it is a small centre in Birmingham with a Tesco Express and a Greggs, and both Tesco and Greggs claimed no affiliation with the parking service. So I googled the building name and found the actual owners. After an email to them, I received a very apologetic call, and was told that if you stop for even a minute, they issue a PCN. I've just received an email confirmation from the land owner that they have had the PCN cancelled with Euro Parking Services. Thanks for the heads up in this forum to pursue the land owner.

    please start your own thread using the red NEW THREAD BUTTON, top left of this forum , near that NEWBIES thread

    the rule is , one person one thread , so please start your own thread after reading the NEWBIES faq sticky thread

    thank you
    Newbies !!
    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

    Hello,

    Just wanted to say a massive thank you to those who contributed to this thread with so much knowledge and information.
    I actually received a highview parking ticket (golden eye ticket) on Friday 12th July 19, for overstaying my time at Catford retail island. After studying these threads, I sent the blue template as suggested and unedited in the sticky thread Friday evening and today Monday 15th July 19 at 9:59 I received a response "
    Dear Sir/Madam,
    Thank you for your correspondence relating to your Parking Charge Notice (PCN).
    Further to your representations, we have investigated your claims and can confirm that your Notice has subsequently been cancelled in full and no further action will be taken.

    Yours faithfully,
    HIGHVIEW PARKING LIMITED

    Thanks again everyone. This was a brilliant result!
