They Just Don’t Learn & TDLR Has No Problems Issuing Licensees Fines

Failure to Secure Vehicle VSF Complaint PhotoFailure to secure other vehicle at VSF photo to take when retrieving your vehicle

As consumer complaints continue to be filed statewide, TDLR investigators are being kept busy doing investigations. Not all complaints find violations, but the majority of them do. TDLR might not issue a dishonest tow company a fine or revoke their license, but the JP Courts across the state are finding them guilty in both the tow hearings, Small Claims Lawsuits for Statutory Violations, Property Code Violations and Theft Liability Lawsuits against their accounts at record numbers this year along…

ALWAYS DEMAND TO SEE BOTH THE TOW TRUCK OPERATOR & VEHICLE STORAGE FACILITY EMPLOYEE LICENSES BEFORE PAYING THEM, THEY ARE REQUIRED BY LAW TO DISPLAY UPON REQUEST SO YOU CAN WRITE THEIR NAME, LICENSE NUMBER AND EXPIRATION DATE FOR FILING TDLR COMPLAINTS!
