  • Tow Logs

    Our company is trying to make a new tow log for cars that we tow away. What information do you guys record? Anyone have a copy they can email me?

    We do not have specific logs for towing, so when recording a tow we usually just take down the basics: Time discovered/Reported, location, description, license, time towed, company used (we do not use a specific company), reason towed, notes (existing damage, missing/expired tags, previous towings)

      Make, model, body style, color, year, plate number/VIN, existing damage, location, time/date, officer, type of tow (roll back, straight, dolly, etc), reason for tow, ticket number, and how much the tow company charged for the tow and storage fees.

        These all sound good. Anyone got anything they can send me if I PM my email address?

          I'm going to second Tennsix's agency's tow report.

          Always take the VIN and plate if you are having a vehicle removed. This way, you have the record of the plate (which may or not belong to the car) and the VIN in case you just towed a stolen vehicle which was involved in the brutal killing of a bus full of nuns then had its plates switched.

          Type of Tow is important for liability purposes.

            I don't but you can make one very easily with Microsoft Word or Excel. I'll do it for $20.00.

              To add to what the others have posted we also take a photo of the vehicle but in such a manner that it clearly shows the vehicle to be illegally parked, example with a "No Standing" sign directly beside/behind/in front of the vehicle.

                I tried to create it on Word, Excel, and Access and I cannot print it on 1 sheet of paper.

                  This sounds like your management team needs to contact a Technology Management Firm to help you manage your technology and create good forms. I would suggest a firm that has private security experience, such as this one.

                  That's just me.

                    It's easy, just takes practice. Fool around with it a bit more

                    I can't find any of our tow forms we used over the summer. But, if i recall:

                    make and model, VIN, tag, date, location, officer, time, towing company called, etc. We had to forward a copy to the local PD as well.

                      I have been fooling around with it for months. No dice. Thats why I was hoping someone could send me the form.

                        Here at the college, we use the same form that is used by local law enforcement. works fine.

                            If you cant fit it on one printed sheet, just reduce the font size or move the cells closer together. If this doesn't work, just reformat your categories so that everything fits. You can keep checking "print preview" to see what its going to look like after its printed.
