NOTE: A vehicle stored in our impound lot will only be released to the legal and/or registered owner. The exception to this rule would be when the legal and/or registered owner’s actual presence is unlikely due to a limited list of reasons that may, or may not, be limited to:
1. hospitalization due to injury or illness
2. located in another city, state, or county of considerable traveling distance from the location of our main office
3. imprisoned in a local jail, state or federal detention center
In the event that one of the above three scenarios exist, a “Vehicle Release Consent Form" will be required to be completed and notarized by a legally commissioned notary public. Said form may be obtained by clicking on the link above and faxing to our office at (708) 430-1191.
In a case where the legal and/or registered owner has been judges to be mentally incompetent by a signed court order, a copy of said court order accompanied by a valid and/or legal power of attorney instrument will be required for presentation at the time of the vehicle’s release.
In a case where the legal and/or registered owner is deceased, then a valid/legal death certificate will be required for presentation at the time of vehicle’s release, in addition to documents providing proof that the person the vehicle is being released to is the “executor” of the estate of the legal and/or registered owner of the vehicle being released, or any legal and binding document(s) that can establish that the person claiming such a vehicle has a legal right to take possession of same.
If you are the responsible party of the vehicle, it is in your best interest to redeem the vehicle as soon as possible or make other arrangements. This will eliminate any further liability to you. If you fail to redeem your vehicle, it will be considered abandoned according to the Illinois Vehicle Code.
