Car owners urged to check with tow lots before picking up vehicles

Due to the unusual snow storm Thursday, Feb. 21 and the number of vehicles that were stranded from the winter weather, the City of Kansas City, Mo., is urging residents whose cars were towed to call ahead before going to the City Vehicle Impound Facility to retrieve their cars.

“The extraordinary number of cars stranded would have impeded our ability to clear streets; therefore, we needed to tow the cars to clear the streets so we can continue to provide essential service to residents,” said City Manager Troy Schulte.

Not all vehicles were towed to the Vehicle Impound Facility, 7750 E. Front St. Residents whose car may have been towed should call 816-513-0680 to determine if their vehicle was towed to the City Vehicle Impound Facility.

Some vehicles on MO-DOT roadways were towed to a MO-DOT site. Please call to verify if your vehicle is at their facility by calling 816-607-2000.

As a reminder, vehicle owners will need to present a valid photo ID (i.e., driver's license, State ID, work/school ID, military ID, passport) and verification of ownership to retrieve their vehicle.

Media inquiries should contact Lesly Forsberg with the Vehicle impound Facility at 816-513-0680.
