** PPI TOWING AND STORAGE RATE UPDATE **
PUCO has made a determination and has filed their final rules which establish the new maximum rates for vehicles towed from a Private Tow Away Zone. (ORC 4513.601) The maximum rates will also be for Police ordered tows for vehicles left on private residential or private agricultural property within a Municipal Corporation (ORC 4513.60) excluding Municipal Corporations who have established fees for removal and storage. The New Maximum rates that have been set will go into effect on June 8, 2018:
- A vehicle with a GVWR under 10,001 – $129.00 Towing and $17.00 per day Storage
- A vehicle with a GVWR of 10,001 or Greater – $216.00 Towing and $29.00 per day Storage
Ohio Towers have waited a long time for this increase and even though we feel that these rates are still lower than we wanted, we still feel that this is a huge success for the Ohio Towing Industry. Don’t hesitate to take the time to read the ruling on these rates to ensure that you are fully in compliance. The Towing and Recovery Association of Ohio will continue to stay focused on the goal that has been set forth, which is The Betterment of the Towing Industry as a WHOLE!
