Florida Towing and Storage Lien Services


Florida towing companies may be inadvertently losing thousands of dollars each year as the result of a commonly misunderstood and overlooked Florida Statute. FS; Section 713.78 permits a towing company to publicly auction-off unclaimed vehicles in order to recover unpaid towing and storage fees that are owed by non-paying vehicle owners.

For example, state law allows a towing company that recovers, tows, or stores a vehicle to impose a lien against the vehicle for those costs. If the charges remain unpaid, the towing company can sell the vehicle at public auction.

The towing company is responsible for sending a Florida Claim of Lien Notice and the pending sale within a specified number of days to the vehicle's owner via certified mail with a return receipt. Therefore, so long as the towing company follows the procedures set forth in 713.78, the vehicle is sold free and clear of any and all prior liens. This includes any prior lien of the finance company that financed the vehicle. Should no one appear at the date of the sale to satisfy the unpaid towing and storage charges and redeem the property, this procedure will allow the towing company to retain possession of the vehicle with clear title issued in the name of the towing company for the purpose of liquidation or disposal.

How to Prepare Towing and Storage Lien Notice - Here are a few things that a towing company should consider the next time they are confronted with a towing/storage lien.

First, the towing company has a deadline to send vehicle owners notice of the unpaid bill. Pursuant to F. S. 713.78 (Towing and Storage Statute), a tow company cannot charge the lienholder for any of its storage fees unless it sends to the vehicle owner, via certified mail, a Claim of Lien Notice within 7 business days.

Second, the storage fees charged by the towing/repair facility must be reasonable. Although none of the Florida Statutes define "reasonable storage rates", several Florida County Ordinances have taken the initiative to cap daily storage rates at $25/day. Therefore, a storage rate exceeding $25/day is presumptively unreasonable.
