Lizard Lick Towing is starting a new season on TruTV and, as expected, things do not always go quietly for the Lizard Lick gang.
Ron and Amy Shirley make a living repossessing vehicles and machinery for lien holders. Ron is typically the hands-on repossesor, while Amy may actually have the harder job: dealing with furious owners when they show up demanding that they get their property back. There are excuses galore, and Amy and Ron have heard them all.
Originally, Ron opened Lizard Lick Towing--located in Lizard Lick, North Carolina--in 1998 with a single truck. Over the years, Amy has helped Ron build Lizard Lick into a highly successful company, boasting a staff of 15, as well as 20 trucks. The couple does feel for those who have fallen on hard times, but excuses do not keep them from doing their jobs. However, each year Ron, an ordained minister, actually hosts a barbeque to help some of the people who have had property repossessed by Lizard Lick Towing.
Bobby Brantley is also featured on the show. He is a co-worker, as well as a long-time friend of Ron’s.
You never know what the group may be asked to repossess next, and the Lizard Lickers don’t shy away from repossessing anything that is legally ready for them to take. But, in their own words, they do their best to handle each situation professionally and without incident:
“We have always been and will always strive to be a company that focuses on dependability, professionalism and dedication. We treat each account and each repossession with kid gloves, bending to the outermost limits to satisfy the lien holders and performing our duty in the way that they deem appropriate.”
Well, “kid gloves” may be a bit misleading, if the Lizard Lick Towing reality television show is to be believed, but, of course, the emphasis must be on “television.”
Lady Bikers Get Lizard Licked
One thing is for sure: The latest episode of Lizard Lick Towing demonstrated that lady bikers can be as combative as their male counterparts when they are unhappy with what’s going on around them. Trying to repossess a bike, the gang started a near-riot in an area bar parking lot. Amy led this charge, pretending to be waiting for a friend to help her with her own broken-down bike (which, of course, did not exist). But, when Amy started trying to roll the targeted bike away from the pack—tricking, actually, someone into helping her push it, telling the woman that it was hers and broken down—someone sounded the alarm, and an army—gang?—of biker women came rushing from the bar. Chaos ensued—as well as a lot of screaming and profanity, of course—but they got the bike, and the bikers found themselves Lizard Licked.
It’s gonna be a fun season with Lizard Lick Towing.
The new season of Lizard Lick Towing airs on Monday nights at 10 p.m. E/P on TruTV.
