Frequently Asked Questions About Cars That Get Towed

What Do I Do If Someone is Parking in My Private Parking Spot?

You have a couple options here. You can either have the vehicle towed, or you can contact the company that owns the parking spaces and talk to an office manager or representative.  They can typically have someone tag the car, or give the person a warning to not park in that spot anymore.

If you want to call a tow truck, refer to your parking lot’s company.  They will usually have signs hung or posted in and around the parking lot with instructions on how to contact them.  They may have a tow service that performs these private jobs for them full-time. 

If they do not, call a local tow company and give them the information you have about the vehicle in question.  They can even look into your parking lot’s jurisdiction and see if there is a tow company already assign to that area.  If you do call a tow truck, the person will have to pay a fine to reclaim their vehicle from the lot or impound.

How Long Before a Car is Towed after it Breaks Down?

The amount of time a vehicle sits before being declared “abandoned” by authorities and towed away depends on where the car breaks down. If a car breaks down on public property, like a public parking lot, the police can legally tow it after it has been registered as an abandoned vehicle. 

In the state of Indiana, if a car is left unattended for more than 30 days, and is never reported stolen, it is labeled “abandoned.” If a vehicle breaks down on private property, there is very little time before it will be towed. As long as the tow company has written authorization from the property owner or police, it can be towed immediately.

What Should I Do if My Car Breaks Down on the Road?

If your car breaks down on the road, coast along the shoulder of the road and slowly come to a complete stop out of the way of traffic.  It is very dangerous to get out of your car on a busy highway, so remain inside until help arrives. You may contact a friend or family member, or you can contact a local roadside assistance towing company for prompt and professional help. They operate 24 hours a day and should be available to help you. You may have to wait an hour or two, but they will arrive to get you back on the road.

What Should I Do if My Car Has Just Been Towed?

First, look for a sign in the parking lot, or near the parking spot, that contains the tow company information.  These signs are usually rectangular in shape and white.  They have the contact information of the assigned tow company that handles the towing for that parking lot.  Just call the number and talk to the receptionist. They will check their inventory and see if your particular vehicle is in their possession.  If it is, they will give you directions on how to get to their establishment.
