You may have them towed under the provisions of Section 715.07, Florida Statutes.

Great question. You can have them towed by a towing and storage company who would eventually sell them to recover their towing and storage expenses, after getting title, legally. Perhaps there is a way for you to start charging for storage to eventually get title just like a towing company would. Consult with an attorney and a towing and storage company in your area.
