Question: How Much Does It Cost To Get Your Car Back After It’s Been Towed??

Fees are set by each company and run from $149 to $160 for towing, plus daily storage costs at impound lots, ranging from $50 to $80.

According to a city bylaw, companies like JP Towing may charge a quarter of their daily storage fee per hour for the first four hours a vehicle is impounded.

What happens if car is towed?

Vehicles can be towed if they are parked illegally or if you owe more than $350 for parking tickets or camera violations that are in judgment. If it has been more than two hours, contact the police precinct where the vehicle was parked. You will be able to confirm that it was towed or report it as stolen.

How do I get my car back after its been towed?

Call 411 and ask for the number of the local police department. Police can then tell you if your car has been towed or stolen. Even if you think your car may have been towed, the police can be a good place to start because they can tell you how to contact the towing company and where to go to get your car back.

What happens if you don’t pick up a towed car?

Normally a towed car is towed to an impound lot operated by a business. Pretty much the same principle as a mechanic lien where a mechanic performs work on your car but you refuse to pay for it and as a result he won’t allow you to pick the car up. He can sell the car for the amount owed.
