If you’ve ever had your car towed you know it’s a pain. You have to find out where it’s been taken and then pay a fee to get it back. But what do you do if you don’t know where your car is? Here are a few tips on how to find your car if it’s been towed.
First call your local police department. They will have a record of all the cars that have been towed in your area. You can also check with your city’s parking enforcement office or the towing company that your city uses.
Next check the websites of local towing companies. Many of them have a list of all the vehicles they’ve towed along with the address and phone number of the impound lot.
Finally you can search for your car on the National Insurance Crime Bureau’s VINCheck website. This website will tell you if your car has been reported as towed or impounded.
If you find out that your car has been towed you’ll need to contact the towing company and pay a release fee. Once you have your car back be sure to park it in a legal spot so you don’t end up getting towed again!
What are the first steps you should take if you think your car has been towed?
The first thing you should do is check if there are any signs in the area where you think your car was parked that indicate it may have been towed.
These signs will usually include the name and contact information of the towing company.
If you cannot find any signs your next step should be to call the police department and ask if they have any record of your car being towed.
