    Got clamped :(

    Went off to wilko to buy a mop and bucket, was a car park next to wilko which both me and my friend assumed was wilko's car park.
    Turned out to be a pub's car park!

    So when I came back I had a nice £100 release fee charge!

    Talk about a joke worlds most expensive mop and bucket!

    Anyway the guy that released it was o.k. about it, said come back in half hour, go into the pub ask for a parking permit have a drink.
    Then send off to the address (on the invoice thing) saying I had a permit and it just fell off the dash.
    Whats the chances of me getting my money back?
    Guessing about 0.5%

    Two words spring to mind...

    Blood + stone.

    They are all sharks who run these private clamping companies IMO.

    Are these things pikey-proof?

    If not, i can't imagine too many of them paying up the charge

    think we should all carry a angle grinder in our boot for these circumstances

    parking fines from private property are not entirely enforceable, so you've got a pretty good chance mate
