Below is a receipt provided to a vehicle owner who caught one of Eagle's tow truck drivers still on the property and charged them $150, but STATE LAW states an on property drop fee can be no more than a $125, and only if the vehicle is ready to transport down the highway.
It’s important to remember, less than 1% of the tow signs posted are legal signs in Georgetown, Killeen, Round Rock, Leander, Liberty Hill, Taylor, Hutto and the majority of Austin. 98% of the tows from private parking lots are done so in violation of state law that pays the vehicle owner, operator or lien holder $1000 plus three times what you pay to retrieve your vehicle, including the cost of repairs for damaged incurred while in possession of the vehicle storage facility.
There is only one towing company providing a legal tow sign to parking facilities, all the other tow companies think they are above the law by not replacing their illegal signs because the public is ignorant of the laws they must obey.
Towing Companies below with their illegal outdated tow signs that will pay you $1000 plus treble damages regardless the reason towed from private parking lots:
Cedar Park Wrecker Service
Republic Parking Management (booting)
Action Towing & Recovery
Under no circumstance should you ever pay a tow truck driver a drop fee or allow them to tow your vehicle if still on property if an illegal tow sign is posted. Use the same force you would use to protect your home from an intruder, as your vehicle is your property and you have the right to protect it from theft.
