Illegally parked vehicles can be a nuisance for commercial property owners and their guests, as well as residential property owners. However, the local laws pertaining to vehicle towing can be complicated and sometimes confusing.
Our towing business is aware of and follows all legal requirements when called upon to perform a towing request by private property owners.
If your vehicle has been towed from private property, there are State statutes as well as local/county ordinances which control the towing and release of your vehicle. In general, police agencies are not involved in this type of tow; however, towing companies are required to notify the law enforcement agency within the town/city/county from where the vehicle was towed.
Generally speaking, only the owner of the private property where you are parked or a property manager and/or their agent(s) can have a vehicle towed. This includes a tenant, as an agent for the owner. The towing company has no authorization to tow the vehicle without written permission (through an authorization or by contract) from one of these individuals.
Our towing company offers services for property owners, managers and maintenance managers. We tow illegally parked vehicles away and provide professional impound services.
Our towing staff is reliable and experienced in the removal of vehicles from private properties. When handled properly, our towing company can ease tension between private property owners and their guests by expanding parking space. Our towing services are the solution to property owners parking dilemmas. Vehicles that are parked unlawfully obstruct parking for folks who are actually entitled to a spot near the business they are patronizing.
While our towing company understands how unpopular our line of work can be with regard to removing vehicles from private property, the fact remains that our services are important to the success of business establishments who depend on their customers ability to find available parking.
In addition, public parking lots and streets are often inundated with illegal parking of vehicles, creating problematic parking woes.
If you have ever encountered being blocked from your own driveway by some errant citizen, you realize how frustrating that can be. You can count on our towing drivers to remove, lawfully, any vehicle reported to be in the wrong place.
FOR YOUR INFORMATION:
A towing company is limited to a 10 mile distance from property location to a storage facility.
All vehicles being towed from common areas or stalls must have an authorizing signature for the tow.
A signature is not required to tow away a vehicle from a Fire Lane as long as the vehicle is parked in a properly posted fire lane and documented with a photo proving the parking violation of the vehicle.
*The person or business authorizing a vehicle tow has the obligation to notify the local police or sheriff department within 30 minutes after the vehicle has been towed away. Notice needs to include the storage site, the time of towing, the model, make, color and license plate number of the towed vehicle or description and registration of the vehicle and the person authorizing the tow shall obtain the name of the person to whom the report was given and note that name on the trip record. In nearly all circumstances, there must be a posted notice warning of towing on the premises. *Section 715.07, Florida Statute.
INFORMATION PERTAINING TO TOWING FROM CONDOMINIUM PRIVATE PROPERTY:
Condo Association Owners and Managers have to be careful when having a towing company remove cars and other vehicles. If condo bylaws call for designated parking spaces (by issuing stickers, tags, parking passes or some other form of identification) then the association has authority to have a vehicle towed off that private property. If no bylaw pertaining to parking on private property exists, then they might not have towing permission. In light of that (no assigned parking, per se) our private property towing drivers will not be able to tow away a vehicle.
Our towing company prides itself on all towing services provided and following local regulations is a priority to us, as well as customer satisfaction!
