Reasons For Impound

Police officers can impound your car for a variety of reasons. If you are arrested for a traffic violation, like a DUI, and no one else is present and able to drive your car, then they will typically impound it.

If a vehicle has been stolen, involved in a crime or involved in an accident, it may be held by Law Enforcement for investigation. Vehicles may also need to be investigated by your insurance company before they can be taken to a repair shop or returned to the owner. If your vehicle is stolen, as the owner, you are responsible for all fees at the Impound Lot. Some insurance companies offer theft insurance policies to cover these types of costs. Check with your agent to find out if these fees are included in your policy.

The vehicle is considered abandoned on a public roadway. Abandoned or derelict vehicles are vehicles that have been neglected by their owners and left parked or stored on public streets or in alleys. Vehicles are considered abandoned when there are clear signs that the vehicle is inoperable. For example, if the vehicle has no tires or has two flat tires. These vehicles are also impounded by a request made by local or state police.



Impound charges are one of the most contested fees. Customer and Business Owners commonly argue over these charges. Total charges are made up of any towing fees that were charged to tow vehicle into the Impound Lot as well as a daily storage fee.

Towing fee usually arise from the hook up fee and any mileage fee based on distance from where vehicle is picked up to the impound location.

The storage fees start from the date the vehicle is in the yard until the date is removed from the yard. All dates are inclusive, regardless of the hour in and hour out. That means each day the car is in the lot the daily fee is charged.


Other Info

The license plate must remain on the vehicle. It can only be removed if payment has been made to release the vehicle from the Impound Lot AND the vehicle is being removed by a towing company or has been donated to a foundation for disposal.
