Are you recognised by any official bodies?

Yes, we're approved by the British Parking Association. We also belong to the Safe contractor scheme and are ISO 9001 certified.

Do your wardens wear a uniform and carry ID?

Yes. In line with the British Parking Association’s guidelines all our wardens wear CPM branded uniforms and carry full identification.

Can you provide parking permits?

Yes certainly, we'll provide you with CPM branded parking permits to issue to all genuine users, residents, staff or visitors.

What about any contractors we want to visit our site?

Again, we can issue you with permits or keep an up-to-date list contractors to your site.

Are you covered by insurance?

Yes. We have public liability insurance worth £10,000,000, employer's liability insurance also worth £10,000,000.

Is the data you hold safe?

Yes. We're registered under the Data Protection Act.

How are you able to request vehicle keeper details from the DVLA?

The DVLA require all parking operators who wish to access their data to belong to an Accredited Trade Association (ATA). We are members of the BPA's Approved Operator Scheme which is an ATA that the DVLA recognise, and as such we have an electronic link to the DVLA. As part of their various compliance processes we are routinely audited by both the BPA and the DVLA.

Do you use an approved debt recovery agency?

Yes, we only work with agencies who are AOS approved and fully accredited.

Do you pursue unpaid parking tickets?

Yes, we will rigorously pursue all outstanding parking tickets. Unlike other companies who charge for their service, our interest is wholly in getting the parking ticket paid. Self Ticketing UK is a free service, we incur costs setting up each account and therefore we must recover all unpaid PCNs to ensure each account is financially viable.

Is the Parking Charges you issue legally enforceable?

Yes, and we often take people to court who refuse to pay and the courts enforce the charge. UK Car Park Management has an excellent track record for enforcing unpaid parking charges via the courts. We take photographs of the vehicles so these can be used later in court to show the vehicle was parked in the said location and the car park terms and conditions clearly visible.

Who deals with disputes and appeals from offenders?

Our appeals department will deal with all enquiries and representations about parking charge notices. We will only cancel a ticket on your instructions.

Can you provide references?

Yes. We can provide you with details of clients in your business sector who can give you any relevant reference information including testimonials.
