FAQs: Can you bill my motor club or insurance company for my tow?

Answer: We do not bill motor clubs or insurance companies. Although we will bill your insurance company for any accident tow that is stored at our yard. There are a few benefits to you for allowing us to to store your car. First, this will give you time to make an informed decision on where you would like to take your car for repairs. This is a good way to save your money on a collision tow which can be expensive, your insurance company will be more willing to get your car repaired faster than letting it sit in our yard. Don’t pay for an accident tow. Your insurance company is responsible for covering this.
