There are a number of reasons why a vehicle might be towed in Daytona Beach, Florida, from a car breakdown, to wreckage from an accident, to leaving a car parked in a No Parking/Tow Away Zone, and it’s not always a guarantee that you will immediately know where your car has ended up if you discover that it is has been towed without your knowledge.
Where your vehicle has ended up is largely dependent on what type of property it has been towed from. If your car has been towed from city/county/public property, there is a high probability that it will now be in a local city impound lot. If it has been towed from private property, then there is a good chance it will be in the hands of a private towing company.
If you can determine that your vehicle was towed from private property, be sure to search the area for signage. There is a high probability that you will find a sign posted which will contain the towing company’s contact information. If there is no sign, try going into the closest business and ask them; they will more than likely know who to call.

Unfortunately, getting your car back is going to be at least a minor headache, but you can minimize the pain by being prepared and knowing what to do in this situation.
First, in order to get your car back, you are going to need to prove your identity and connection with the vehicle. We suggest you keeping copies of the following documents on your person in case your car gets towed:
Second, don't forget that time is of the essence when dealing with your towed vehicle. Whether your car was towed from private or municipal property, the facility where it ends up will be charging you for towing and daily storage fees, which can be quite costly. Having the documents we outlined above in your possession can save you time when it matters most.
Finally, if you determine that you car was towed from public property, do NOT call 911. 911 is for emergency use only, and even if your car has been stolen instead of towed, you will still need to reach out to the local Police Department phone number, not 911.
