​Many private properties, whether residential or commercial, legally can limit or regulate parking on their property.  Motor vehicle owners may face the possibility that their vehicle may be gone when they return if they ignore signs regulating the parking on private property.   It is the vehicle operators' responsibility to know the rules of where they are parking. Only the vehicle operator can prevent the vehicle from being towed by parking in a correct manner and making themselves aware of the rules.

​PRIVATE PROPERTY TOWING is defined as towing or removal of a vehicle that is illegally parked on private property, at the property owner's direction. This is legal under California Law, and is authorized 24 hours a day. Private property owners will contract with us to remove vehicles from their property. Vehicles will be stored at our location until released to the vehicle owner.  The vehicle owner is responsible for all costs associated with the towing and storage of the vehicle.

A. “Owner’s agent” means a person bearing documentation from the registered owner officially authorizing them to possess or operate the vehicle.


B. “Private parking facility” means any property used for motor vehicle parking at which the property owner or manager restricts or reserves parking, including, but not limited to, mobile home parks, apartment complexes, private gated communities, and business or shopping centers or malls.


C. “Private parking facility owner” means the owner, operator, lessee, manager or other person(s) in lawful possession of a private parking facility, or any designated agent of the private parking facility owner.


D. “Private property impound(s)” or “PPI” means the impoundment of a vehicle from a private parking facility at the request of the property owner, operator, lessee, manager or person in lawful possession of the private property facility, without the prior consent of the vehicle’s registered owner.

Animals in towed vehicles.
If a vehicle is found to contain any live animal, the PPI tower shall make every effort to protect the welfare of the animal. If the vehicle has not been redeemed within two hours after it reaches the PPI tower’s storage lot, the PPI tower shall contact the local animal control authority to arrange for the animal to be taken into protective custody.
