I’ve Been in a Car Accident–Will the Wrecker Charge Me to Store my Car?

July 2, 2017 No Comments by johnmixon

Yes.  You will amass a daily charge that most wrecker services refer to as a storage fees.  If your car has be considered a total loss by the insurance company they will transfer the car to their own storage facility and settle the account with the wrecker services.  If you car is not a total loss then they will not.  If the wrecker you use is also a Paint and Body facility then they will most likely do the repair work and the insurance company will settle the matter with the wrecker.

However, if the insurance company does not claim liability and the car sits for an extended period of time you will be amassing daily charges.  In this case we advise that the client make all necessary arrangements to take possession of the car themselves so as to avoid the possibility of thousands of dollars in fees.
