If you have a new neighbor who likes to throw parties on a regular basis, it can quickly become a nuisance because of the noise and volume of cars that will be parked in the neighborhood. If you have talked to the neighbor about the fact that the parties are becoming a nuisance and they choose not to listen to you, there is action that you can take. The following guide walks you through the process of having vehicles towed from your property or from the street if they are blocking your driveway.
Mark Your Property
The first thing you want to do is mark your property with no trespassing signs as soon as possible. You want to be sure that indicate to all people who come to your neighbor's next party that your property is not a place for them to park. If they fail to abide by the signs, you can have the vehicles towed away.
Call the Local Non-Emergency Help Line
Every police station has a non-emergency help line that people can call when they need to talk to a police officer when an emergency is not taking place. The next time the neighbor throws a party and people park on your property or block your driveway, call the non-emergency number and inform the department that there is another party taking place and that people are parking on your property illegally or blocking your driveway. The police may come and ticket the vehicles for improper parking or may choose to just make note of the situation so that they have it on file. Let the station know the name of the tow company you will be using so that, if they get calls from the people who illegally parked, they can direct them toward the towing company.
Contact a Tow Company
Next, you want to contact a tow company like AA Action Towing Inc to have the vehicles towed from your property. The company needs to know important details about the vehicles that need to be removed, such as the make and model of the vehicle so that they can know which ones to tow. Larger vehicles may require a flatbed truck, while smaller ones should be able to be hooked up with a traditional tow truck.
Do Not Directly Contact the People at the Party
The individuals who own the vehicles that were towed may try to make contact with you directly. Do not go outside of your home to talk to them. They may become violent or hostile toward you and that could create a dangerous situation. Eventually, they will get frustrated and call the police to report their car as stolen. When this happens, the police will tell them everything they need to know.
The owner of each vehicle will be responsible for paying for the towing fees. Once a few vehicles are towed from the neighborhood, the word will get out and you should start to notice a decline in the number of vehicles parking on your property very quickly.Share
