Our industry is struggling from the economy, and we are at a crucial point where we need to speak up and make a difference. There are more and more unregulated buyers out there forcing us to fight for the very thing that keeps us going, and alive, in this business today. We must take a proactive approach from this point on if we intend to stay in business. This is a battle that can't be fought alone.
Our 2015 Convention and Trades Show was a great success! Special thanks to all our exhibitors and sponsors:
E & R Towing • Hotlines • Midwest Bank • The Weaver Group
Our own John Catalano, Sr. of Bionic Auto Parts recently spoke with NBC 5 in Chicago about the potential for identity theft when personal information is left in a wrecked car that then makes its way to a salvage yard, particularly for wrecks at self-service yards. While responsibility falls on the car's former owner to ensure all personal effects have been removed prior to tow, that doesn't always happen, especially following injury accidents. For the protection of others, adopt a policy at your own facility to ALWAYS destroy any personal effects which are left behind in the wrecks you receive.
