Most of the tow companies will accept cash only. Contact the towing company prior to going to the storage facility to determine the towing and other related charges. The tow companies charge a daily storage fee for every day the vehicle is left at the storage facility.

To keep from incurring a daily fee, it is strongly recommended you remove your vehicle from the storage facility, as soon as possibleThe maximum amount a tow company may charge is regulated by city resolution.

To reclaim your vehicle you must have the following items with you.

  1. Picture identification (i.e. driver’s license, passport, state identification card)
  2. Proof of vehicle ownership by lawful title or other proof of lawful entitlement to the vehicle.
  3. Current proof of liability insurance on the vehicle.
  4. Proof of current registration of the vehicle.

The vehicle will be released to the registered owner listed on the title or other lawful entitlement to the vehicle. If this is not possible, the tow company will accept a notarized letter from the registered owner authorizing another person named in the letter to remove the vehicle.  The other items listed above will still need to be presented to remove the vehicle from the storage facility.

If you do not have current liability insurance or proof of current registration you will not be allowed to drive your vehicle from the storage lot. You may still reclaim your vehicle by paying the tow and storage charges and have a towing company of your choice tow the vehicle to your residence or other location. 

The tow companies are not required to release any  property in the vehicle until the tow charges are paid. However, they are required to release medicine or medical supplies including prescription medication, prescription eye glasses, walkers, canes, wheel chairs or other medical items.
