A vehicle can be impounded for two reasons. Either because of a traffic violation by the driver or illegal parking. Getting a car out of the impound lot isn’t always easy. However, to then get your car out of the pound, you have to have the right papers, and pay the fine. What exactly do you need to get your car out of the impound?
Find the impound of your vehicle
If you were pulled over and your vehicle was impounded at the time of your arrest, chances are the police gave you information about the impound. If your car was towed without you knowing, you may not know where to look next. Call the impound first to check if your vehicle is there, so you don’t go there for nothing. Of course, do not hesitate to take a rental car for the period during which you find yourself without your own means of transport.
Fees to pay
The longer your car sits at the impound, the more charges you are likely to accrue. Rates vary by city and terrain. However, be aware that most pounds charge by the day. So the sooner you gather the necessary documents, the sooner you can get your vehicle back for a reasonable fine.
Be careful though! If you delay too long, chances are your car will be scrapped. In this case, it will obviously be impossible to recover it afterwards.
Have all the necessary documents
You may not know exactly what documents you will need. You can then easily either call the pound directly, or call an advisor who can enlighten you on all the steps and steps to follow. To find an adviser in Paris, see this page .
Ask what documents are necessary to be able to recover your car (driver’s license, registration card, vehicle insurance, etc.)
If you show up on D-Day without any of the necessary pieces of information, you will be sent home without your vehicle.
Remember that each additional day is charged. It is therefore essential to manage this situation as quickly as possible, so as not to incur excessive expenses for you, but also to allow you to be transported again!
