ok folks, i am not legaly minded and dont know if anyone has a clue how to do this but here goes......


i work in the vehicle recovery industry


when a car is involved in an accident the police call their contractor to remove the vehicle asap,

the contractor then deals with the drivers insurance company and the insurance company pays any outstanding fees.


the salvage company then collect the vehicle from the police contractors compound......this is where the problem starts !


the police contractor in this area have now started to refuse to release the vehicles to the salvage company due to lack of h+s

and other certs that no salvage company are required to have...

...what documents and h+s guff they ask for is what recovery companies have !


their drivers are not able to collect the damaged vehicle !!!

the police contractor then charge more storage fees untill the salvage company

can get a proper recovery company to collect the vehicle.


recently we started to collect the vehicles on behalf of the salvage company thus circumventing the police contractors rules.

on friday we were informed the police contractor will not release any vehicles to sub-contractors :-x:-x:-x


i am now loosing money because of this


can i get any advice here ?

do i need a court order ?

and whats the costs and time frame ?


any info would be great

It sure sounds like somethings going on behind the scenes you're not aware off as yet.


Could it be "another" company is being used preferentially, which is possibly why you're giving the run around re H&S?


Is there anyone you can contact there, that you can talk too, to resolve the issue?

I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every single minute of it!!
