  4. Square since 2011-ish. Never had a single issue. We authorize users, then drivers download the app. Once it the card is processed we receive an email and the money is in our account the next day. If there is something out there easier, I'd be shocked.
  5. I say we all work together and shut entire highways down whenever one of us has to pick a car up on the highway. Or say any roadway where the speed limit is above 35mph. Maybe they will notice we are tired of being killed and none of them caring if we jam up traffic for a couple weeks whenever a car needs to be loaded.

  8. When these are working they talk to you and what they say is hey you didn't get it in park. But, the a REPO company isn't going to use them. Oh the one on the left is $60 to $100 and the one on the right is $20 from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00196FDOW
  9. AT what point is your life worth more that that vehicle determined to leave your lot. Move Away the vehicle will be found and it was the person will be arrested and they were. Your injuries will be a reminder for possibly the rest of your life. Some judge will make them pay restitution which you'll be lucky to ever see and they'll walk free. Again not worth your life, which yes will be effected if you shot them over a vehicle. I don't know that stand your ground would apply.
  10. That's a great achievement, you have plenty of time to make it to 700. Better get to work!
  11. I saw where the family asked for privacy. But, are there any updates on the drivers condition.
  12. Any Pictures or better yet Video from these events?
  13. Company does PPI so they may not care about their public image. But, they should care that anyone either in this group of bike riders or watching this video might pull out a magnifying glass on the tow business.
  14. Can any of the members here residing in Virginia explain this?
  15. It seems like this is a trend, if this had been a Police Officer, Fire Fighter even EMS or maybe DOT she might have been found guilty. But a Tow Truck Driver or say A Garbage Collector we are discounted by the general public. What would happen if there were no vehicles being Towed or Trash being Collected. There comes a point when WE say enough is enough and as Professionals decide our lives and the jobs we do are as important as those who receive what seems to be much more respect. Let the vehicles sit for a day or two and the trash back up for a week. Our value and importance to society will not go unnoticed.
  16. Is this one of the largest Tow Truck Processions the industry has seen. Does anyone know of other 100+ Truck Tow Processions over the years.
  17. Found one in one in an impounded abandoned work truck, it's soaking in transmission fluid now.
  18. Could it be part of the hustle to get that impound hooked up and away without detection that led to this incident? There are several like type fatalities where the tow truck was not in park ultimately rolling over or backing over tow operators. Christine and I send our prayers to this agent's family and the company he worked for. R.

  20. Second suspect arrested in N. Portland tow truck yard assault; first suspect appears in court PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - Portland police have arrested a second suspect in connection to a hit-and-run assault inside a north Portland tow truck yard. Police say they received a tip from a concerned citizen in the Centennial neighborhood at about 3 p.m. Monday after they saw a white van matching the one in the tow yard case. Officers arrived on scene and located the van matching the description and were notified that the suspect was inside a nearby home. The suspect, Kenneth Jett, 64, exited the home and officers were able to take him into custody, police said. He was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on second-degree criminal mischief. Police previously arrested 24-year-old Nicole O. Penagos-Clare. Investigators said she drove a stolen truck last Wednesday and hit a fence that slammed into an employee at 21st Century Towing on North Kerby Avenue. The crime was caught on camera. The victim in this case, Josh Durrett, was in court Tuesday for Penagos-Clare's arraignment. RESOURCE LINK
  21. Police arrest woman in connection with theft, assault at N. Portland tow yard; officers still looking for other suspect PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – Police have arrested one of two suspects who they say broke into a north Portland tow yard, stole a pickup truck and then hit an employee while fleeing the scene. The incident occurred early Wednesday at 21st Century Towing, located at 8510 N. Kerby Ave. The employee sustained a broken collar bone but is expected to be OK. On Sunday, police said the female suspect in the case had been arrested and identified, and the stolen truck was also recovered. Police say an employee of the tow company came across the stolen truck near Northeast 6th Drive and Northeast Middlefield Road on Saturday. The driver hooked it up to his tow truck so no one could drive away with it and called police. Officers had the truck seized as evidence. Saturday night, an officer was dispatched to a house in the 1600 block of Northeast 128th Avenue. An anonymous caller said they saw the video of the hit-and-run on television and believed the suspect was there. When police arrived, they saw the suspect. She ran from officers but was captured and arrested. Nicole O. Penagos-Clare, 24, was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on charges of robbery in the first degree, assault in the second degree, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, and failure to perform the duties of a driver-injury (C felony). Detectives are still asking for the public’s help to identify and locate the other suspect, who is described as a white man who is 60 to 70 years old with white hair. Police also want to locate a van that was possibly used by the suspects. RESOURCE LINK
  22. That is too bad. Diagnostic skills, especially electrical, are in high demand. Dealers do not have the longterm mentality to keep quality technicians. If you pay peanuts you will get monkeys.
  23. These bumpers are lost here mostly by low bid salvage haulers.
  24. I only purchase quality tools. I do not buy tools made from communist ciuntries or countries that eat dogs. I do not use any of my tools for any purpose other than what they are intended.
  25. About 13 years ago I had a towaway customer come after hours to my yard to retrieve his vehicle. I asked the man for his drivers license and he stated his wallet was in his vehicle. I opened the gate enough for us to walk in ( it is a large swing gate )closed it behind us and escorted him to his car where he promptly changed his demeanor, jumped in and started it. I stated kindly that he needs to come back to the office with me, finish the paperwork and pay the bill before he can drive out. He then told me in so many nice words that he wasnt paying anything and refused to get out of his car. After explaining to him that i was calling the police, I walked back to the gate, walked through it and let the latch swing down like I had when we walked in so the gate would not fly open. I then grabbed my phone from my truck and called the police. while waiting for the police the customer continuously drove forward and back towards the gate and never once stepped out of his car. When the police arrived he stopped the car and stepped out claiming I had locked him in the gate and refused to let him leave. I explained to the officer that he was free to leave whenever he wanted and the gate was never locked it was just latched so it would not swing open but he was not taking the car unless he paid for the tow. After a few minutes of talking with another officer, the first officer on scene walked up to me and told me to put my hands behind my back as I was being placed under arrest for unlawful imprisonment for closing the gate with him still inside of it. I bailed out a couple hours later. To make a long story short, 7 months and about $7500 in lawyer and court fees later the charges were dropped. To add insult to injury, after my arrest the officers let him take his vehicle without paying. Needless to say, I no longer let anyone in the yard for anything. If you dont have your I.D., then bring someone who does.
