If a towing company has towed or stored a vehicle AND has not been paid for the services rendered, that company has a lien against the vehicle. The lien may then be satisfied by selling the vehicle through the lien sale process.
To conduct a lien sale, the towing company must have possession of the vehicle and have lien sale authorization from DMV. Interested parties, including the registered and legal owners of record will be notified before the sale occurs.
If the vehicle’s value is $4,000 or less, the registered and legal owners of record will be notified by the party conducting the lien. If the vehicle’s value is greater than $4,000, DMV notifies all interested parties.
Courtesy Tow sells unclaimed vehicles to recover the cost associated with the towing, storage and lien processing in accordance with the California Vehicle Code.
