    Keep trying , it NOT HVH property to park and use as they please... or is it just a one way street for a defunct carrier to have their equipment scattered on other land .

    original poster sure did #### up though posting online and then calling the broker ect and giving them details on the load...

    The owner of the property the trailer was located at is st00pid, too. Storage fees to the insurance company for abandoned equipment would have easily netted $100/day on the low end. 90 days equals $9000, or 20% more than he got for the hassle of fencing stolen scrap. 30 day notice in the paper might have cost him $300 but at the end he'd have the title for the trailer (worth at least $10k) plus the load inside the trailer (legally sold worth about $10k). For the lack of effort, he's out $14k plus he has to look over his shoulder for 10yrs. (I *think* grand theft has a statute of 10yrs)

    You have NO idea who parked that trailer there, any more then the rest of us do. The OP failed to mention who parked it there.

    What he DID mention was that he took property NOT belonging to him, sold the load and dumped the equipment.
     
    Bean Jr. and buddyd157 Thank this.

    All I had to do was send a certified letter to last registered address. Wait 30 days for return of letter. State issued abandoned title.

    But that was years ago. And the vehicle hadn't been registered for a few years.

    Ha Ha ha...hilarious thread. The op did not find any sympathizers but surely was looking for some.
    Nevertheless, being a devil's advocate here....Let's imagine that the trailer is on your limited, yet crucial for your business space and everyone you call around, including sheriff and Al Capone, wants to have nothing to do with it. I understand there is a legal procedure for it...but do you have time to deal with it for half a year, while you need the space now or else your business hurts?

    I'd freaking want to sell it too without necessarily trying to clear my qualms of conscience on TT...lol.

    What's other alternative, take it to the nearest TA and drop it there?

    I am a little bit damaged, I keeping thought that is scrap value.

    I wonder what aluminum used to go for by pound? Should grab it and see. It is scrap after all.

    Every town has some closed businesses. Drop it out of the way behind a building for the three months to get the legalisms taken care of.
    Call the property owner first to get permission.
    Or a farm, or a gravel lot, etc. Plenty of places to stash a trailer without stealing it. Or, just drop it in a roadway, it will be towed and someone else's problem then. :)
