Contacting with police and BAG
The most important thing at a police control is to understand the reproach against you or rather your driver. We support you to keep this reproach with the lowest penalties and time loss. Most matters we can solve in place, in other difficult cases we consult you to save your money.
Canceling of a truck
If your truck has significant deficiencies, the police has the right to keep the trucks documents and cancel the registration plates. The trucks are often escorted to the next technical control station to prepare a list of defects. When all defects are repaired you get back the license plates and original registration documents. So in this case there is only the possibility of repair or transport of the defect vehicle.
Transport of the vehicle outside Germany
In case that costs of repair are too high, you have the opportunity to tranpsport the vehicle outside of Germany. The police will send the documents complete with license plates to the authorities of your home-country. If you want to avoid that, the truck or trailer must be repaired in Germany. Nevertheless we can help you arranging a transport of your defect vehicle.
Towing of the vehicle to the next service station
Your truck was escorted or towed to the next service station by the police, but the service is too expensive for you? You have the choice to bring your truck to another service shop. But you must consider the following:
- It is not allowed to tow the vehicle for long distances, except of emergency cases
- You will need a special low bed semitrailer for transport of your truck and machines
- When transporting a trailer or semitrailer, the construction must be removed and disassembled
- For loading of trucks and machinery you will possibly need a loading crane.
Choice of a Service point and repair work
We can help you to choose a compatible service place in the area of the truck control. There we agree the amount of repair cost and work and supervise the full work process from beginning until the end. Most of german workshops are planning their work at least for one week and calculate about 100 ,-€ per hour so it is better to get sure finding the right service partner at first try..
What happens when you leave your vehicle or truck in Germany
In case that you leave your defect vehicle on a private property of a German company, they will charge „standing fees“ of 20,-€ to 100,-€ a day. If you will not pickup the truck within a period, the vehicles will be auctioned off to pay the creditors costs. Also the police will bring this case to court and your company, as well as the CEO will be hold accountable.
