City increasing tow lot rates


The city says the cost of operating its tow lot is increasing, so it is raising the rates you’ll pay if towed.

Beginning July 1, the rates will increase by $40. That means a regular tow (for a vehicle up to 10,000 pounds) will increase to $240. Rates for medium tows (10,001 to 26,000 pounds) increase to $340 and heavy tow rates (over 26,00 pounds or if special equipment is needed for towing) increase to $415. Additional storage fees may also apply depending on how long the vehicle is in the tow lot.

According to AutoReturn, a national municipal tow management company, Kansas City’s increased rates are still competitive with other Midwest tow fees.
