Yesterday, was not surprising to observe another unlicensed tow truck towing a vehicle in Austin, that I reported back in July 2010 to TDLR. At the time of the original TDLR complaint, the complaint was rejected because the photographs of the truck was not proof enough, therefore complaint was rejected.

The owner was this tow truck was informed by another towing company how to become licensed, but ignored all help and continues to tow vehicles unlicensed, both the tow truck and the tow truck operator.
Used car dealers would prefer to use their own tow truck to tow their vehicles, and I have no problems with that, as long as they are licensed, something this company isn't.
Guess their is reason this tow truck is affiliated with "Last Chance Auto Sales" and Austin Express Body Shop, (no relations to Austin Express Wrecker Service).
The only difference between the two incidents, is in the video, a temp tag that dealers can print from their office for customers, replaced the rear license plate.
