What is required by Texas State Law
to get your vehicle released from our Impound Lot for tows of any reason

Things you should know before you come or call to pick your vehicle up:

  • We don’t “negotiate” our rates when you call or arrive. This isn’t 1974 and tows are no longer $50. Tow trucks are $50,000 to $60,000 each. Insurance is $10,000 a year. Fuel is not $1 dollar a gallon, it’s $3.00. Employees are not $2.50/hour. They are salaried well beyond minimum wage. Does your boss negotiate what you will be paid weekly on your wages? No.


  • If you come without proof of ownership (title, registration, or insurance card that matches your photo ID) , you’re not getting the car out. If you’re not the owner of the car, and you don’t have an affidavit of ownership (notorized statement that you’re approved by the Owner of the car to pick it up) you aren’t getting the vehicle out. Yes, you can have the keys. Your wallet might be in there. We can’t release the car.

This is State Law. We can be shut down, fined, and have liability releasing a vehicle if you aren’t the Owner. We won’t do it, so please don’t ask

  • Realize a mistake has happened & it will cost you money. Life happens. Mistakes happen. If you sweat the cost of the tow and have a fit, the price still stays the same. Go into this knowing you’re going to pay what seems like  a lot of money to get your vehicle out. Major of our customers we see back time & time again. Did you learn a lesson from this? Ask yourself.


  • Throwing temper tantrums in our office. Generally, tempers can flare when you may have illegally parked your car in a NO TOW zone and now have to pay. Remember, what you say matters. You can be charged with a simple misdemeanor of disturbing the peace to assault. Keep your cool. Don’t let a mistake turn into a fiasco with the law.
  • If you call us 25 times and ignore the proper documentation to get your vehicle out of impound. Without it, it’s not getting released. We don’t take bribes, we don’t have shoulders to cry on. If you come at 3 a.m. and still don’t have the documents you’ll still have to leave and get them. If you’re not the owner, you won’t have this info at 3 a.m. Go sleep it off, and come back when you’ve made the calls to the Owner to get what you need.


Finally….we don’t care about these things and you’ll still have to pay & still have to prove ownership:

  • Who you are (VIP,  rich tourist, tough guy).
  • Who you “know” (if they are from South Padre chances are we know em’ too)
  • Your XYZ relative or friend that’s an Attorney. We have one as well. We follow ALL State Laws. We will win, and you will pay our Attorney’s fees after we win, and you will still pay.
  • Your sob story on why you have no money and can’t pay (you’re here on vacation with no money? Please. Pay or we keep the car.
  • The story on since you didn’t see the no parking signs, you can’t possibly have to pay for this tow

Guess what? We can’t tow you unless a.) the police call us to do so or b.) the property owner has a signed Tow form on file with us and calls us AND has the universal NO PARKING signs up.

We take cash, credit card or electronic check. We don’t take booze, drugs, bribes your watch, or anything else you feel is an equal barter. We don’t take payments, either.
