V8 ENGINE Towing and Storage

In today's modern times space has become more demanding, not only in the domestic sector but just as much in the industrial and business sectors. Space has fast become an inflated expense, especially in the large cities, towns and suburbs where a square metre of real estate is worth what the demands are set for it.

Motor vehicle repair and engineering workshops therefore have to be efficient and steadfast when valuable space is occupied which dictates to an extent the competitiveness in the mechanical workshop arena. Parking and storage space for each vehicle must therefore be accounted for. The tenant or owner of the property reserves the right to charge for storage should the customer not comply to the workshop notice, terms and conditions or email/s sent and received by the customer.

Workspace, parking space or storage space that is occupied by any customers vehicle and the work carried out on any such vehicle will be charged for and is therefore subject to a 'lien' which is enforced by South African Law in order to safe-guard and protect the owner/s of any such business against any customer who orders any related towing and storage, mechanical, electrical or autobody works or any other works related to the vehicle motor industry that is or to be carried out on any such vehicle.

This includes the authorised towing and recovery and/or for the parking, storage and security of any such vehicle whereby the owner or responsible person/s of any such vehicle have not adhered to the 'Terms and Conditions', as set out herein, of the company or workshops NOTICE or SIGNAGE displayed.

This automatically affords and guarantees the owner of any such business, that no such vehicle can be removed from the workshop area, yard or from the secured premises of the business where the vehicle is parked or any of the motor vehicle parts which are stored without paying for any such works, towing services, storage and or/parking services, whether the works to any such particular motor vehicle have been completed or not. This ensures that no customer has the power to excercise or be able in any way whatsoever to take advantage of the owner of the business by removing the vehicle without full payment as the business owner is protected by the "lien" law that has been set aside for exactly these reasons.

Abuse of the business owners rights relating to any of the above where parking or storage space of which any motor vehicle occupies within the businesses floor or parking areas of our workshop or premises will not be tolerated.

Such customers unmistakably leave their cars for long periods without consenting to a reasonable time frame or as set out by the workshop owners terms and conditions, invoice and/or emails delivered, which should be taken seriously by both parties concerned. Where space is or becomes a problem, cars have to be constantly shuffled for various reasons which creates time loss which equates to the loss of income.


Such 'terms and conditions' as set out herein is clearly portrayed on and by means of wall signage and/or on our website and website article where applicable, such as V8 ENGINE or similar which is a fair warning to any such customer/s reminding them of his/her rights when engaging in any such business. Such signage is clearly visible and unmistakable to all customers or potential customers when entering into our workshop environment.

The company workshop NOTICE similarily outlines the 'Terms and Conditions' of any such reasonable motor workshop or storage facility and should be posted in all car, motorcycle and truck service and repair workshops, panelbeaters, towing and storage facilities. As set out below the workshop sign or workshop notice is and should be clearly and notably displayed and stated in simple english which is easy to understand.


'Terms and Conditions' of each workshop may vary slightly to convey and prioritize the importance of the shops concerns and matters, in order, so as not to mislead the public, thereby informing the customer or responsible person/s entering the workshop, yard or it's offices to common law practice which includes a list of reasonable 'terms and conditions' which have been learned and practiced through time and experience.

Verbal warnings of a similar nature compelling customers to comply with a workshops common and/or standard 'terms and conditions' must not and which are often blatantly ignored. The customer or his/her agent, who instructs a workshop owner or his/her manager, foreman or employee to commence with works on his/her motor vehicle is usually required to pay a prescribed deposit if so ordered, and settle the final invoice timeously should the works be completed or not, failing which, the customer would be in breach of contract and reasonable common law practices.

Therefore any overdue towing, parking and/or storage fees will automatically become effective and accordingly charged for by the business owner, in this case, V8 ENGINE.
