Most tow companies charge between $50 to $125 for a five or ten-mile local tow, or a $75 hook-up fee and $2 to $4 per mile for long-distance towing. The average 40-mile tow will range from $125 to $250. Before youcall a tow truck company, check your car insurance policy.

Who pays the towing company? No. The towing company will charge all fees to the registered owner of the vehicle, when they come pick it up. If they never do, they will sell it at auction as allowed by law, to recoup the cost of the tow and storage. That being said, YOU, the caller, must have legal authority to call for thetow.

What happens if you can't afford to get your car out of impound? If a towed vehicle goes unclaimed by the owner within a given length of time, itis usually destroyed or sold at auction. Now, if the money received from the auction sale is not enough to cover the towing, storage, and auction fees, the last known registered owner is held liable for the unpaid debt.

How long before a tow company can sell your car? 10 to 14 days

Can I tow my own car Philippines? In Metro Manila, two entities are authorized by the government to tow vehicles: The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA). They have a fleet of tow trucks, but these are only allowed to tow “stalled vehicles involved in accidents”; and. Other towing companies accredited by the MMDA for other reasons.
