    Excel parking

    Excel parking 11th Mar 18 at 8:40 PM
    I drove into one of excels car parks to look for a space I sat and waited 15 mins or so but still none came available as it was rammed pack full. Plus there wasn't any marked bays and people had just been parking in any old fashion. They have sent letters saying that I owe them 60, 100, 160 now. I have had letters from some sort of debt collection company and from what I have read on these forums I just need to ignore them all.
    Is this true and I'm not really sure what to do. Could anyone help please?

    Excel can be safely ignored. Its a scam. Have a good read on here about private parking companies and relax. If you are scared by the threatening letters you will receive then post back here for reassurance.

    Okay so I've been reading through the links etc and most relate to retail parks. Anyhow excel parking are saying that I cannot appeal due to time elapsed. The debt recovery company are now saying that they are going to advise that excel parking move to court proceedings. Do I not have a case due to not being able to find a space (dispite waiting 15 minutes) and that they isn't any marked parking bays and that people had parked where ever they could. Note that the ground was unkempt (pot holes etc)

    You've told us nothing about your car park.

    You are now waiting for a Letter of Claim from PE.
    Post again when you get that or official court papers.

    Why on earth read posts from 2008 and 2009 and think that's OK advice to follow?

    When you read the NEWBIES thread you will have seen post #2 tells you what to do when they sue. We win 99% of well defended cases here, have done for over a year.

    Why not read up to date threads, search the forum for 'Excel BW Legal' to see what happens.
    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.
