Who is responsible for the towing and storage bills?
In many cases, the insurance company for the driver who caused the accident will pay the reasonable towing and storage costs of your car. They will continue to pay the storage costs while determining whether your car is a "total loss" or determining the damages. However, it is your job to mitigate these damages. If you have agreed on an amount for the repairs and accepted the funds planning on doing the work yourself, you are responsible for moving your vehicle from the tow yard. However if your auto is determined to be a “total loss” you must provide your permission to allow the tow yard to allow the vehicle to be removed by the insurance company. Failure to provide prompt permission can cause a person to become liable for the storage fees from the day of your refusal.
