We've compiled a handy list of the most commonly asked questions about towing services on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Check them out below. And remember, we are always available, 24 hours a day to answer any other questions.

A. In most cases there is no charge. Vehicles requiring special handling or filled with garbage and debris would have a fee assessed to cover the cost of disposal. If there is a charge you would be told what the charge is before we tow the vehicle.
A. Any property owner or person authorized by the property owner may impound an unauthorized vehicle. At the time of the impound the property owner or manager will need to complete a written Authorization to Impound that shows the identification of the car and signed by any person authorized by the contract. The Authorization to Impound can be downloaded from the forms tab on this website.
A. No it is the responsibility of the registered owner to pay for the charges when the car is redeemed.
A. Only if the vehicle is completely on the private property and not touching the City street or sidewalk and only if you are the Property owner or an authorized signer. In the case of the vehicle is on a public street or sidewalk please call the local police non-emergency number.
A. In most cases, we should already have ownership information on the vehicle from the Department of Licensing. Then the Registered owner, legal owner or their agent must present valid picture identification such as a driver’s licenses, state issued Identification card, a passport or other verified forms of state and federally issued photo identification. The impound & storage fees must be paid in full before the vehicle will be released. We can also tow the vehicle from our yard to most auto repair facilities and bill them directly. We accept Cash, MasterCard, Visa credit, Discover, American express and check cards for payment. A licensed driver must be present to drive it off our property.
A. A bill of sale does not constitute ownership of a vehicle in Mississippi unless the impound occurred within the first 15 days of possession. Therefore you must go to a licensing agent and transfer the registration into your name before attempting to redeem the vehicle.
A. Personal property such as medicine, infant and child restraint seats are items that can be removed from a vehicle. Items that are attached to the vehicle are not removable. Only the Registered Owner/Legal owner or their representative can redeem personal belongings from a vehicle that has been impounded, and only after the tow bill, impound fee and any other fees incurred, have been paid.
