Why shouldn't I appeal myself - what will you say that's different to me?

You can appeal the parking ticket yourself however 95% of the time appeals are rejected as they are normally made for mitigating reasons.

Unfortunately the companies do not accept these grounds of appeal any an adjudicator is not legally allowed to accept them either. We have a vastly experienced expert team dedicated to get you the best result who use a wide range of technical grounds to challenge parking tickets. The reasons we use can include anything from the layout/location of the signs and lines to the wording of the contract the parking company must have in place with the landowner.

I've ignored all letters and now have a letter from the County Court...can you help?

Absolutely Yes. We have an excellent track record with private companies at the county court stages (even if you have ignored all letters) and our team have knowledge of the whole process. Please contact us ASAP to find out how we can help as there are strict time limits to respond and failure to do so could land you with a CCJ. You can Use our 'Check My Ticket' page to find out

I was told that if I ignore the private parking charge notice the company will stop contacting me after a few letters, is this true?

This was the old advice given prior to the change in legislation and it worked most of the time. However currently the registered keeper can be held accountable for parking charges notices if the company are not made aware of name and address of the driver at the time of the incident. Our advice is never to ignore these tickets as there are many grounds to get them cancelled. Call us on 0203 322 8282 or use our 'Check My Ticket' page to find out

I've paid my council parking ticket already, can you still appeal?

Once you have paid the ticket the case is normally closed and you are unable to appeal, however if you are within the appeal deadline (normally 28 days) an appeal can still be submitted.

I have the bailiffs threatening to take my car if I don't pay. What can I do?

Contact us immediately on 0203 322 8282 and in most cases we can get bailiff action suspended within 24hrs. Following this, the case will get sent back to court for a hearing by a court officer. We can normally get your ticket reduced to the original amount and in some cases cancelled.

The Bailiffs have sent me a letter saying they will visit my property and take my goods in my absence, is this allowed?

Absolutely not, Bailiffs are very limited in the actions they are allowed to take. They cannot enter your property unless you invite them in. Our advice is to contact us immediately if you have received any letter of this type.

Don't the wardens have to give 5 minutes grace period before issuing a ticket?

The simple answer is No they don’t. Any period of observation or ‘grace’ is purely discretionary. As soon as your vehicle is seen contravening a restriction a ticket can be issued.

Do I need to go to court?

Any appeal submitted on your behalf may result in the matter being heard by an independent adjudicator. You do not need to attend for these types of cases as we can submit the case as a postal appeal.
