Celadon Equipment held HOSTAGE
Celadon has filed suit against a vehicle recovery company for holding its equipment hostage! Can you imagine that? Some company taking advantage of this situation? I am shocked. Anyway, the company, Triangle Recovery Services, was running ads and offering a cash reward for the location of abandoned Celadon equipment. Celadon says they were representing themselves as a legitimate way for people to turn in equipment when in fact they were just gathering equipment to hold and demand a recovery fee from Celadon. They are accused of doing what drivers were saying they were going to do which is hold on to the truck and demand that Celadon pay storage. The problem is, it doesn't work that way. You, and this place, have no agreement with Celadon to have them pay you storage. You can't make up some fee after the fact. This place is going to have to give up the equipment they have stored to the bankruptcy court and get nothing for it. You can't just do that and think it is ok. It isn't. If your company closes and you are on the road you must give them their equipment back. You don't get to park it in your yard and demand a storage fee. Not going to happen.
Do you have a dash cam yet? Why not? Your truck and your cars should have one. With so many scams and bad drivers you need to protect yourself. I use THIS one and I recommend it.
See you on the road!
