Today I count 5 damaged vehicles parked outside our homes that have been dumped here by GHL Towing or City Towing 64 Luke Street Otahuhu and have been sitting there for many days. Damaged vehicles that they won't park in their compound but use our street free of charge I assume (cars that don't belong to anyone on our street) Is this acceptable? This has been going on for years. It makes our street look like a SLUM. One car is leaking oil, many have smashed windscreens, another has its tyre laying up against it. Its no wonder the moral is low for street pride when companies like this treat the street like its a junk yard. Why cant they tow these cars to an arranged holding yard rather than leave it for us poor residents to be the main feature outside our home. Health & Safety risk to the children on the street also. If their business is towing - tow these cars to the car owners homes at their cost or a car wrecking yard. We had a valuer tell us these damaged cars impact negatively on the value of our house price. Of course it does! Is this not any different to companies disposing of their rubbish irresponsibly? Please help.
