Do you need a vehicle towed in Bonney Lake?

The vehicle impounding process is never a comfortable one. Somebody is getting their vehicle taken away, and someone is forced to take action to get said vehicle towed. No matter which side of the affair you’re on, Fife Service & Towing may be able to help. Our technicians are always standing by and ready to respond 24 hours a day.

Why was my car impounded?

While many times you will be given a warning before your car is towed away to an impound lot, in Washington State, there are certain exceptions. Fire zones and certain streets have No Parking rules, and violators will be towed away, often in a very timely fashion. A business owner may also have a vehicle towed at owner’s expense if there is a sign in a conspicuous location at the parking. If not, they must wait a minimum of 24 hours. If your vehicle was towed before that time and there is no sign present, you may be able to challenge it under RCW 46.55.120

  • Vehicle impound Bonney LakeCall us to check which impound lot your vehicle has been towed to. Usually, it’s the lot that’s closest to the spot where it was towed, though there are exceptions.
  • Make sure that the registered owner comes to pick up the vehicle. If the owner is unavailable, someone else may do so as long as they have verifiable permission.
  • Always have some kind of picture ID for identity purposes.  There must be a driver with a valid license present in order for the vehicle to be released.
  • Along with a valid driver’s license, the operator of the vehicle being released must be insured to operate the vehicle before it will be released.
If your vehicle was impounded by a police agency, there might be extra requirements before you can get it back. Make sure to check with them first before going to pick up your vehicle so there aren’t any extra setbacks.
