|Texas Towing Compliance
|The Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation Commissioners set the maximum towing fee for vehicles towed from
private property without the vehicle owner or operator consent. In what I consider a victory for consumer and business'
pocketbooks, towing companies can no longer gouge consumers with ungodly fees. Most cities regulate the rate, some
allow no more than $60 to be charged, vs Austin $150, San Antonio $177. So ask for the towing company's nonconsent
tow fee schedule, they have to provide it. If they refuse to provide it, file a complaint!!! Please read the rules regarding the
drop fees to avoid being scammed! The City of Austin Towing Ordinance requires tow truck operators give a vehicle
owner/operator 30 minutes to retrieve the funds to pay the drop fee.
