Langley Towing Tips: What to Do If Your Car Is Towed
By Clover Towing Posted September 25, 2017 In Langley Towing
It’s a busy Saturday morning with a million things on the go. Groceries in hand, you race out of the store and make a beeline to your vehicle. But when you get to the parking spot, all you can see is an empty space where your beloved car used to be. And suddenly it hits you like a two-ton heavy thing—my car’s been towed or it’s stolen! Many of us have faced this situation at one time or another. While there certainly is the possibility that your ride could be stolen (it is the Lower Mainland after all), chances are, if your vehicle is missing, it’s a pretty safe bet your car has been towed. Whether you’ve been down this road before or it’s your first time, don’t panic. Here are some tips if you suspect your car has been towed in Langley.
Why Did My Car Get Towed?
There are a host of reasons why your car has been towed. Some of the usual suspects include illegal parking, driver’s licence violations, unpaid parking tickets, expired registration, and even a car alarm going off for an unreasonable length of time.
How Can I Find My Car?
Obviously, the first thing you’ll want to do is track down your car. Take a look around for any “no parking” signs with phone numbers posted on them. If there aren’t any, call the main local police line for assistance. There’s a good chance they can fill you in on what happened and where to pick up your car. Make sure you have the make and model of the vehicle, as well as your driver’s licence number handy. By the way, just in case you get the urge to dial 911, don’t. As much as your missing car might seem like an emergency to you, to the folks in blue, it isn’t.
What Should I Do Before I Pick up My Car?
Once you know your car’s whereabouts, it’s time to get it back. Before you head over to the impound lot, call or browse their website for the company’s hours of operation. While you’re at it, check to see what forms of payment they accept. In many cases, impound lots will only take cash for towing in Langley and storage fees. Also, if your vehicle has been towed because of unpaid parking tickets or licensing issues, you’ll have to clear that up before you can pick up your vehicle. Either way, get your car as soon as possible—storage fees can add up quickly.
Realizing your car has been towed in Langley is no picnic. Following these tips—and keeping a cool head—will help make things run a heck of a lot smoother. With a little planning and patience, you’ll be back in the driver’s seat in no time.
