Trashing out a house that has a car left behind?

Hey there guys and gals, we recently received a work order to trash out a house which is not a problem at all. The issue is that in the front yard there is an old Camary left behind that our customer whats for us to remove.

Has anyone dealt with this before, if so what is the normal procedure and is there anything from a legal stand point that I should worry about?

Thanks,

Vince

Call a tow company to take care of it. If the owner has evicted the tenant than you should be good.

No No No...

This is what you should do. Get a set of keys cut and add it to the fleet!!!

You would have to check with your local DMV for local guidelines. Make sure you have a paper trail or you could be charged with theft. The bank usually posts a notice on it. You need authorization from the bank to remove it.

In MI, we just call a wrecker company we use, they come get it for free, fill out paperwork and after 30 days or whatever, they auction it. No need to call police if its on private property.

But I think a Century in your fleet will be great for trashouts....

Notify bank before trashout is done for a notorized statement that a personal property eviction has been done. That car is personal property. I also suggest you get your own legal advice and not from a forum.... Nothing personal guys/gals. To many contractors are getting criminal and civil charges to not get real legal advice.

Just saying its better than buying some butthead a new car and having shiny new wristbands.....

Yep it does happen...

I explained this to a newbie last March in Des Moines that was going to remove a camper...he did remove it anyway since I was only "scaring him"...Dumb move on his part. He ended up buying the previous owner a "newer" 28' travel trailer and still paid $600+ in fines. Guess he would love that advise now? Doesn't matter the company he worked for fired him for not following local laws/ordinances.
