Christmas – Not necessarily a time of goodwill

As I write, I am sitting in my office, manning the Private Parking Appeals phone. There is only one of me today, where normally there is a team. I somehow think I will not be overwhelmed with enquiries.

However, I draw the short straw because I don’t celebrate Christmas. Which suits me very well.

Later, I will divert the line to my Mobile Phone, and go to join the rest of my family in Dundee, where turkey sandwiches, cranberry drinks and various festivities will be engaged in gently with a smile.

However, spare a thought for the poor Parking company staff.

Last year, PPA dealt with over 20 parking tickets which were issued by ParkingEye on 25 December, and another 16 that were issued on Boxing Day. we saw 31 issued on Good Friday, 23 issued on Easter Sunday and 12 issued on Easter Monday. We regularly see tickets issued on bank holidays and Sundays.

Since the Parking Companies don’t take a break for holidays, neither do we. Private Parking Appeals is open from 8am to 8pm, every single day of the year.

On behalf of everyone at Private Parking Appeals Ltd, may I wish you all Seasons Greetings and a peaceful and PCN-free new year.


And, as a quick edit, I did indeed receive three calls on Christmas day. :-)
