C/o Board of Selectmen
After reviewing the meeting held on July 23,2013. We want to make you aware that we were never withheld from towing from the Town of Cohasset due to improper licensing. We have been properly licensed since we started towing with our fleet back during the 1960s. We have been in business for over 50 years at the same location and have been towing for the Towns of Hingham and Hull for a number of years. No towing outfit in the state of Massachusetts can be improperly licensed and insured due to MA Law and MA DPU Laws and Regulations. We work off of our repair license and are a long lasting member of Statewide Towing Association.
It came to our attention we were improperly removed from the rotation of towing in the Town of Cohasset when we noticed we were no longer being dispatched to any tows. At that time, I (Ashley Thomas) called and spoke to the acting chief, Lt. Quigley personally. I asked him why we were no longer being dispatched for any tows in the Town of Cohasset, his response was “The other company in the rotation came to us and brought to our attention that during a motor vehicle accident (involving a Toyota Corolla belonging to TNT Driving School) you were not using a Thomas Auto Body tow truck, but were using a Malloy’s tow truck out of Weymouth”. I responded to him ” At that particular time during that motor vehicle accident, one of our trucks was being repaired and the other was out on a tow in either Hingham or Hull”. I explained to him that we have had a long -lasting working relationship with Malloy’s and they allowed us to use their truck while one of our trucks in our fleet was out for repair. He then replied to me “well at this time we do not need your services and your company will be removed from the rotation.”
For us, we are not interested in towing for the Town of Cohasset at this time but we would like to make you aware of the correct circumstance that happened and as to why we were removed from the rotation in the Winter of 2011. We also do not want to be accused and spoken falsely about.
