I used to repo cars. Some people thought that they could wedge their cars between two others to keep it from being towed.

Truth is that it is illegal in Texas to move another vehicle without a work order or the owners' permission so I would use the Dynamic wheel lift like a fork lift. Just back up to the car towards the door, raise it, (crushing the exhaust if need be) and move it somewhere so it can be turned and towed correctly. The bank doesn't care about spending a couple grand on repairs when 20 to 40 grand is at risk.

Garage doors can be opened easily or destructively. If a car is in the open, it only takes 3 seconds to pick up and roll with a Dynamic lift. If in a garage, there are many tricks to get it in under 5 minutes. The repo man just earned $600 to $1,500 in 20 secondsDo you think he cares about paying $400 for a new door and repairs.

Repo men can be very destructive
Repo guys can make $400/hour on a good day and $50/hour on a bad day. How many of you can say that?
