FREQENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Wheel Clamping

Wheel clamping is illegal under the Transport

Amendment Act 1997. Subsection 60.6 does not

limit the right a person may have to remove or cause to

be removed from land, a vehicle parked or

left standing on the land.

What hours of the day do we operate?

To suit our clients needs, but we envisage most

businesses to be attended to during business

hours when parking is at a premium. We are of course

available for any after hours service also.

What signs should be in place?

We act on specific signage i.e.. size and correct wording.

We are able to provide samples of the

signs and any additional text that may be required

specifically for your site. We will attend the

site, meet with the management or building

representative and make recommendations, should it

be needed.

Insurance

We have full insurance (copies of which are available).

Bodys Corporate themselves are covered

under their own policies "Office Bearer's Insurance".

Unregistered vehicles are not covered.

What service is available after the contract fee is paid?

24hours, 7 days per week for a one year period. The

vehicles are towed, the police are notified (in

the event that the owner reports the vehicle as stolen),

and stored in a fully monitored secure

holding yard. Our response time should be within a one

hour time frame.

How do we differ from other towing companies?

Most of the operators towing illegally parked vehicles

have to gain access to the vehicles to

release hand brakes or to let the vehicles out of gear or

in the case of autos, out of park. Under

section 60(1) a person must not without the owners

consent,

(a) Drive or otherwise use a vehicle on a road.

                OR

(b) Wilfully interfere with (1) a mechanism or other part

of or equipment attached to, a vehicle on

a road or elsewhere. Maximum penalty - 40 penalty units

or 6 months imprisonment.
