Frequently Asked Questions
So you are all set to leave your house when you walk out and realized that a car is parked at the bottom of your driveway and is blocking your way out. Issues like these can make for nasty confrontations or amicable discussions depending on the people involved. Generally, if things like this happen it is best to try and find the owner of the car and get him or her to remove it without having to call us up. In addition to that, there are a number of regulations that must be followed in order to away cars parked on public property. If these regulations are ignored the person who solicited the service could be in line for hefty fines and hard legal battle. If things get too out of hand though you can call us up and we will help you remove this car from your private property.
Shopping Centers or Stores
If you are the manager of a store or shopping center you may notice that a car has been parked out in your lot for a long period of time. Did you know though, that the fact that this car has been parked there for a long period of time does not automatically give you the right to order it to be towed away? In fact, you have to have signs that meet state requirements as far as size hight and location to fully order a legal private property towing! It seems a bit excessive, but that is the law! If these signs clearly issue a warning sign and state that towing will be applied to cars parked in the area you can go ahead and tow it away.
Parking is handicapped spots is widely frowned upon in the state of New York, and with good reason. A fully able person should not be able to take advantage of spots that were specifically designated for people with certain disabilities. These private property towings can be completed on the spot. As long as the signs that indicate the spot is reserved for handicapped people is clearly visible. The same thing goes for parking in specifically reserved spots.
If a care is literally left blocking traffic lanes in any point of the street or is deliberately blocking your way out of your driveway you can call us up and we will pack the car up from your driveway. In these cases, houses are not required to post signs warning of possible towing if parked incorrectly. If not the whole town would be filled with no parking signs.
Parked in the Fire Lane
Cars parked in the fire lane will be towed away by the city! In most instances, you will not necessarily need to call us up. If a car remains parked in the fire lane for an extended period of time you may want to give us a call especially if you are the manager of a shopping center. The police may think that you are deliberately allowing people to park there, and this could also bring fines!
