messagePCN - Sainsbury’s DKH
Posted by TJ June 25, 04:31PM

Hi.
I’ve just received a letter from a debt recovery agency, relating to a parking fine at Sainsbury’s dog kennel hill.
We overstayed the permitted tiMe. This was because it took i we 2 hrs just to get into the supermarket.
The debt recovery company just want money. Horizon parking have no customer lines, Sainsbury’s has no phone lines open.
So, how do I resolve this?!
Any ideas??

A Parking Charge Notice – the one issued by private companies - is not backed up by law. Instead, it is an invoice that has been issued for what it alleges is a breach of contract. If the car park operator wants to force you to pay, they will need to take you to the civil court, which is costly and time-consuming

done that twice and it's best to complain to Sainsburys not the Car Parking people (Horizon) - email them or ring them - say you were not shopping anywhere other than sainsburys. if no phones include horizon and the CEO of sainsburys in an email also as this makes it easier - they responded to me very quicklysmiling smiley

If you shopped in Sainsburys they'll probably let you off - say probably as it might have changed with Covid19.

If your appeal doesn't work, tweet @sainsburys; I did this to Lidl once, after an iffy ticket at Surrey Quays, and they quashed it.

Do a search on Martin Lewis money website because there's a lot of information on there on the legal side and specimen letters you can use to to challenge it. the same thing happened to me in a different supermarket and I offered them £1 for my overstay and that was the end of the matter
