IAA Tackles Houston's Damaged Cars

How do you remove hundreds of thousands of damaged cars from a massive city mired in water and muck? Towman Alex Toll will tell you: one vehicle at a time.

"I'm not going to change the world," said the 43-year-old tower. "But I can help people get their cars replaced."

Toll is part of an army of more than 1,000 towmen contracted by Insurance Auto Auctions whose job is to extricate vehicles swamped by Hurricane Harvey so insurance companies can begin the claims process. IAA set in motion a massive logistical operation in Houston before Harvey southern Texas. The company did the same for Hurricane Irma, which is affected Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Florida by this weekend.

As soon as the hurricane's path toward Houston became clear, the firm acquired or leased hundreds of acres where it could store damaged cars, in addition to the property the company already owned in the area.
