What You'll Need…

Many of the tow yards across the U.S. require documentation to prove ownership of the vehicle you look to retrieve. It's crucial that you remember to bring these documents in order to avoid paying further storage fees.

The required documents typically include:

  • Proof of vehicle ownership: Current Registration Card or Vehicle Title.
  • Proof of identity: Valid Driver's License, State-Issued ID, or Passport.

If you only possess a temporary license and/or do not have a current Driver's License, State-Issued ID, or Passport, you'll have to provide two (2) forms of alternative identification.

The accepted alternative forms of ID can include:

  • Notarized Birth Certificate
  • Signed Social Security Card
  • Current School ID
  • Current Work ID

What To Do If Something Goes Wrong…

Discrepancies and errors in the impound process can happen. When they do, you may find that your vehicle has been damaged or towed without appropriate legal process.

Unlawfully towed vehicles may be the subject of a lawsuit. What's more, you may be able to sue a towing company for damages that they caused to your vehicle.

Whether you can't find your vehicle, you find that it has been damaged, or you believe that it was not legally towed in the first place – Baltimore Accident Center is here to help.
