Per Hoboken City Code, vehicles parked in violation of posted signs and/or local ordinances may be summonsed and/or towed. If you believe your vehicle may have been towed, please follow the procedures below.

Towed Vehicles

As a result of contracting law requirements and to provide redundancy and additional resources in cases of major storms, the City has transitioned to a rotating towing system as of November 1, 2012. The current towing contractors are: A & L Auto Body, EZ Towing, John's Main Auto Body, Kings Towing, New Jersey Towing. Vehicles will be towed by each of the five contractors on a rotating business to their respective locations.

The new procedures for retrieving a towed vehicle have been significantly simplified, eliminate multiple back and forth trips between the tow yard and Police Department, and uses a single point of payment. By providing a driver’s license, the registration and insurance information can be retrieved without the need for additional back and forth trips as was previously necessary.

If you believe your vehicle has been towed, please follow the following steps:

  1. Call (201) 653-1919 (Parking Utility) or 201-420-2100 (Police Department) to confirm your vehicle has been towed and the name/address of the tow yard.
  2. Present your drivers license to the tow yard.
