Tow Truck Service - Removal of Abandoned Cars around Detroit
The Detroit area is bouncing back as strong as ever. There are community beautification initiatives going on and removing old abandoned or illegally parked cars helps to get things looking better in a hurry. You've got a sign up stating that unauthorized or abandoned cars will be towed. Yet there it is. That aging rust bucket blocking access to your property. So now what do you do? Simple. You call Detroit Towing.
Call The Cops?
Why would you call Detroit Towing? You pay your taxes, you know your rights, you're going to call the cops. If you're reading this is probably because you've just found out the hard way by calling the authorities. The Michigan vehicle code makes it clear that the police or an appointed local government authority will tow away a vehicle immediately if it meets certain requirements. If it is causing a public hazard on the highway, if it a stolen vehicle, if it in a tow zone, or blocking a disabled access then call the police and they will deal with it. But if it is off the highway (because it's on your property) and you don't have some pretty convincing reason to think it's stolen, then you're probably going to have to deal with it yourself. Except you're smart so you're going to call us and have us deal with it.
Let Us Help Advise You
Detroit Towing is a reputable provider of unauthorized parking enforcement services for your residence or business. As such we have close contact with law enforcement (we have to call the police to discuss any removal in case the vehicle is stolen for example) and we can advise you on your situation. Can you safely have the car towed away, or do you need to give notice? Did you have proper private tow zone signs on display? For you it's simple – you want that car gone now but in law it is often a complicated issue in which you need to make sure you act properly and legally or you could end up liable yourself. So call Detroit Towing. We know the issues and our experienced team will recognize the difference between types of unauthorized parking and help you hit on the right way to handle them. Talk to us before unauthorized parking becomes a problem and we can help you by putting up the legal signage (signs have to give contact numbers and explain the risk of impounding) so we can swing into action right away if anyone does park without permission on your property.
The city of Detroit has two formal categories of abandoned car. The first is when the vehicle has stayed on a public street for 48 hours and “from its condition” appears abandoned. That one's easy. The key word there is 'public' and if the vehicle is on a public space (including the sidewalk) then you call the authorities. The second one is for private property and it specifies a vehicle that has been on private property for 48 hours or more without the property owner's consent. That one's you, right? Of course there are problems about proving 48 hours, and there are other arguments about cases where the vehicle isn't fit to move but if in doubt – call Detroit Towing and we will talk you through what needs to be done before we take it away for you.
Once the due process is done – and remember we will make sure it's done right for you – then Detroit Towing will tow that vehicle for you. It's what we do, and we make sure we do it without damaging your property, any other vehicles on your property, or the offending vehicle itself. Trust Detroit Towing.
