    Here are some shots of a car that was left in one of our lots,and we were instructed to bury it till spring.It was a Suzuki Swift.

    The snow you see is from most of the season.It did melt down some a while back due to a warm spell.The pile is 10-12 ft high in places and had to be 60-80 ft in depth,by 100 ft wide.That car won't be coming out for a long time.The piles are so frozen that I was able to walk on the top,which is where I shot the pics from.

    Pic #1 about 40 ft into the pile,25 ft from the car,standing on top of the pile.

    We notified the property manager about the car after the first snowfall.He said the car belonged to an ex-employee,who abandoned the car there,and he did not have any better place to put it.He told us to just bury it,as he will probably just tow it away in the spring.

    OMG, tell the property owner to call the car owner to have him move it over. "Johnny, can you move your car over two spots so we can plow"?

    Make sure you advertise using the photo with your truck in it. Should be a good sales pitch. "My big truck can bury any little car"

    If the owner of the car has any smarts, you will probably be in court!

  16. Still, No way .....No how.

    The car does not belong to the manager/owner of the lot. Even if I had it in writing, would I plow in a car purposely. Just looking for problems.

    True the car doesn't belong to the property manager BUT the car was left on private property and therefore is subject to the rules of that property, IE "parking for employees of blah blah blah" or "parking for patrons of blah blah blah, all others will be towed away at owners cost" I even have a lot that I do and it has signs that say anyone can park here but not between 7pm-6am. I wouldn't worry about it, if worse came to worse I would play dumb and say that the car was soo small I never saw it when I was piling the snow ...sorry.

    a different way

    1. Make sure that the one local constable is at coffee shop or is otherwise occupied.

    2. With accumulated snow on lot surface, attach tow strap to offending vehicle.

    3. Tow offending vehicle onto adjacent public street, next to curb but no closer than 7" to same. Make sure vehicle is positioned so as not to create a hazard to other public traffic.

    4. Local constable at some point in time will observe offending vehicle illegally parked, will ticket and have towed to impound lot.
