Received a ticket from a private parking company? We may be able to help – our team of appeal handlers have many years of experience in dealing with these, and can boast a high percentage success rate in getting tickets cancelled.
The landscape for private tickets changed on in 2015, when the Supreme Court ruled against Barry Beavis in his legal challenge to ParkingEye’s right to issue penalties to motorists. But this need not mean it’s game over for the motorist – there are lots of reasons why such tickets may not be enforceable. Our single ticket appeal fee is £19 (including VAT).
Frequently Asked Questions
What do Private Parking Appeals do?
In short, we handle your parking ticket for you, giving you the best chance of having it cancelled. Our team of experts know the laws and the loopholes for private parking tickets, and use this knowledge to write appeals. We write both appeals to the parking company and/or the independent appeals service (aka POPLA or IAS). Our team have years of experience of writing appeals and court defences and know exactly how to deal with each company and case type, giving you the best chance of winning.
Do you fight tickets from all parking companies?
We will appeal tickets issued by parking companies who are members of the British Parking Association (BPA) or the Independent Parking Committee (IPC) which covers virtually all parking companies in the UK.
How successful are you?
Our team boast a very high success rate in getting tickets cancelled. In fact, some parking companies will cancel the ticket as soon as they know Private Parking Appeals are involved to save themselves the cost of processing the appeal!
Can’t I do this myself?
Of course you can, using information from sites such as Parking Cowboys or the online forums. However, this means you have to put in the effort to understand the industry and associated law to give you a chance of winning your appeal. For those that can’t put in that effort, or aren’t confident enough to do it themselves, we can help.

What happens next?
Once you have made your enquiry and paid our fee, your case will be assessed centrally and you will be allocated to a case handler. Whilst we aim to do this within three working days at peak times this may take a little longer, as we triage cases coming in.

What are your fees?
Our fee of £19.00 will cover most scenarios with appeals, debt collector or LBCCC stage and will cover any stage up to and including the provision of an initial suggested defence in the event you have received a court claim. In the event you have multiple tickets, then please make an initial payment of the £19.00 and we will get back to you – please state the PCN nos on the enquiry form.

Please note, terms and conditions apply.
Will you assess my case before paying?
We’re not a free advice service, and so we need to know customers are genuinely interested in our services. If you wish to make a general enquiry then you can do so, please ensure you detail what stage you are at in the process so we can provide a balanced view on any assistance we can provide.
However, please do NOT make a payment for our service if you have received a default judgment for claimant or if you have already paid the parking charge as any refund will incur an admin charge.
What if you fail?
We only take on cases we think we can win. However, case law is ever evolving, so we can never be 100% certain we will win.
