Has Your Vehicle Just Been Towed or Stolen?Getting towed is a drag; unless you are the one asking for the tow. If you are one of the many people in this state whose car or truck has been towed against your request, then you should be happy to know you have come to the right place. One of the first steps to finding your vehicle after it’s been towed involves a little investigation and some critical thinking. Think about why your car might have been towed from the spot it was last parked. Is it a spot that requires special licensing or permits, like a handicap or reserved parking space? Or is it maybe a no-park or fire zone?
Take a few minutes to calmly ask yourself these questions. Usually there are white or blue signs located near parking areas that indicate their parking perimeters. These signs are meant to notify drivers if parking is only allowed during certain times of the day, if parking spots are reserved for permitted personnel, or if the lot is private overall. Look for these kinds of signs and read the ones you find. Do they pertain to your parking situation? Have you followed all the rules and requests outlined in these signs? If, at this point, you are convinced that you were parked legally, and were not towed for reasons regarding the space or lot you chose, then it’s time to go to the next step.
Don’t start to panic just yet. Your car may not be stolen at this point. Use this time to think about other possible reasons your car might have been towed by the city or property manager. Was your license plate expired? Do you have several unpaid parking tickets? Was your car just involved or suspected of being involved in a recent crime? Was your vehicle in extremely poor physical condition, like flattened tires, missing bumper, or busted oil tank? If you answered yes to any of these circumstances, it could be the reason your car was towed.
If now you are leaning more toward the possibility that your car was towed, not stolen, it is time to go to the next step. This step involves contacting your local DMV, using online resources, and calling a few towing companies. If during business hours, you can call the driver’s branch and ask if the city has towed your vehicle. To do this, you will need your plate number, vin number, tag number, and more. You can find this on a copy of your vehicle registration. If this proves fruitless, you can go to the web for answers.
There are a few websites, like Auto Return, that let you enter your vehicle’s information, and it will provide details on the whereabouts of your towed car. If this is not a possibility, or you do not have access to the internet, contact an Indianapolis towing company. Don’t bother with the smaller businesses, it is most likely the work of a larger company in the city. Contact a towing service that has been around for more than 20 years or so, and has many industry accomplishments. They will be able to help you locate your vehicle, whether they towed it or not.
If you think your car was stolen, contact the Indianapolis police department to file a report.
