Re: Wildfire Salvage Contracts


Recommended Posts

I was thinking ... at some point, the west coast might stop burning.


For each county withing the burn's footprint, there eventually will be clean-up efforts and contracts to remove and transport burned hulks in a similar manner that happens after every major flood and hurricane on the eastern seaboard.


If your tow company has equipment and personnel to dedicate to a city or county contact, it may be worth your while. What works best is a winch truck to drag the burn to an accessible location, carriers to load and transport, a Landoll type transporter for stacked vehicles, and a large forklift for the loading tasks. If the contact allows you to work at your pace ... better yet. We worked with the city to bring cars to a staging location where they were ultimately loaded and delivered directly to a scrapyard. If the vehicles weren't handled by an insurance company, the city provided abatement paperwork for immediate disposal. 


If you're motivated and interested in these kinds of salvage contracts, you might lay some groundwork by contacting the county where you're located to serve. And, unless the contracts are via the major insurance companies, their not overly easy to find. Good luck.     R.
