[Update. Both people who originally ran the company have informed The Prankster they ar not involved. Additionally the company behind the service has changed and has informed The Prankster that the new company does not accept the liabilities of the old company. The Prankster therefore no longer recommends the service as the guarantee is essentially worthless.]
Most private parking tickets are not issued correctly and can therefore be cancelled on appeal. However, the process can be daunting and requires some reading up and research. While this is all quite possible, not everybody will want to do this and so a new company has been formed to take care of this all for you .
The Parking Ticket Appeals Service.
For £16 they will take care of all the appeals process for you, and guarantee your ticket will be cancelled. if not, they will pay the parking charge!
The service has been operating in a limited trial form for a while and so far has had a 100% success rate, with some appeals cancelled by the operator without the need to go to POPLA.
This will of course save the operator the £27 POPLA fee, but it is ironic that the operators realise the futility of carrying on when faced with the Appeals Service, while still forcing ordinary motorists to jump through hoops. The operators know full well that the people behind the appeals service have had a long history of helping people win appeals in the past and The Prankster can reveal that they still provide free help to motorists on the forums, while also running the appeals service
The Parking Prankster realises the service will not be for everyone.
However, if you are a busy person and want the problem to go away for £16, this service may be for you.
Alternatively if it is all too much to come to grips with, then you may also want to check out this service.
