Updated: Abandoned cars towed in the City of Hoover

Posted: Updated:
HOOVER, Ala - The City of Hoover did not have abandoned cars towed as originally reported, and will not pay for it. 

Captain Jim Coker with the Hoover Police Department told Alabama's 13 that Action Towing and Recovery moved some vehicles on Montgomery Highway and Valleydale Road, Montgomery Highway and Riverchase Parkway, and surrounding areas, but that was not ordered by the city.  The City of Hoover has a contract with a different towing company than the one which moved vehicles.

"No one should pay for these tows," said Captain Coker. "There should be no charge to recover your vehicle unless you specifically authorized Action Towing to tow your vehicle."   

If you return to an area near the Montgomery Highway corridor to retrieve your vehicle and it is not there you can call Hoover Police at (205) 444-7700 or Pelham Police at (205) 620-6550.

You can also call Action Towing at (205) 390-6596 to see if they have your vehicle. Action Towing is located at 2075 Valleydale Terrace off of County Road 261 near Montgomery Highway.
