    ParkingEye parking charge notice

    ParkingEye parking charge notice 7th Jul 18 at 12:17 PM
    Morning all,

    Received in the post today relating to last Sunday. 100 charge amount, 60 if I pay it quickly.

    Short version - I pulled in to The Range car park near me(it's not pay and display or anything) at 9.34am last Sunday, as I planned on getting a couple of things when they opened - which I thought was 10am. After checking their opening times on my phone whilst waiting, I realised they didn't open until 10.30am, and left at 9.54am - a 20 minute stay. I didn't even get out of the car, I parked there with the intention of shopping from the store and nothing else.

    How should I proceed here? I obviously don't want to pay them any money, as this really isn't fair in my opinion.

    Cheers for any advice.

    Thank you, standard blue text appeal submitted.


    Edit - just to add, I've also emailed The Range with my PE reference number and registration plate outlining what happened, and asking for any assistance they may be able to offer. I'm not hopeful but it all helps, eh?

    Yes but the Range have a bad reputation for not giving a *sheet* about what ParkingEye do to customers, sadly.

    I've had nothing from them through the post, but saw yesterday in my junk folder that they'd refused my appeal. Should I now complete a POPLA appeal? If so, is there a standard appeal template I ought to follow?


    Or, as outlined in my appeal to ParkingEye, should I currently ignore their response as it has currently only been supplied via email, not by post as requested?


    Thanks for your help so far!

    Don't miss a popla appeal!

    See the newbies FAQ thread #3 for all advice on popla appeals together with links to near templates to adapt

    I'm not looking to miss the POPLA appeal, I was just curous whether their reponse should be entertained as it has only (currently) been supplied via email, ignoring my request that it be conducted via post as per the standard template.

    Who were you thinking would uphold/enforce that for you?

    Ignore PE at your peril, they are the most litigious private parking company in the country. Just move on and get your POPLA appeal drafted.

    There isn't an all-embracing template, but there are a number of freestanding template appeal points for mixing and matching and putting together. All contained in the NEWBIES FAQ sticky, post #3. Let us see your draft for critique before submitting.

    Don't miss your POPLA deadline.
