Towing a Vehicle

If a vehicle needs to be repaired, you can purchase the repair kit in your team shop instead of towing it back to the impound.

To tow a vehicle, park your tow truck in front of the hood or back of the vehicle you’re towing. The two vehicles must be close to each other, or else the game will not let you tow it.

To place the vehicle on your flatbed, you will need to use the “Tow Car” tool. You can equip this tool by going to the right side of your tow truck and striking [U] on the “Tow Vehicle” dialog box. A new tool called “Tow Car” should now appear in your inventory.

To tow the vehicle, you will need to equip the “Tow Car” tool, then walk to the hood or rear bumper of the vehicle you trying to tow. You will then need to press and hold on the hood/rear bumper to tow the vehicle. You should see a “Towing” loading bar. Once the vehicle has been towed successfully, you’ll receive a notification letting you know. The owner will also know why the vehicle was towed.

NOTE:
Most vehicles will be towed by the front where the engine is located. This is where you’ll press and hold with the “Tow Car” tool. If the vehicle has the engine located in the back such as the Hyper Car, you’ll need to tow the vehicle from the back with your tool.

You’re done! Now, you’ll need to drive the vehicle back to the Towing Impound lot where you spawned. From there, you can release the vehicle.

Releasing a Vehicle

You can only release a vehicle at the Car Dropoff area. To release a vehicle somewhere else, your tow truck will need to be removed or the owner will have to remove the vehicle themselves.

To release a vehicle, drive your tow truck with the towed vehicle over the marked Car Dropoff area in the towing impound.

Once your tow truck with the vehicle is in the Car Dropoff area, you can now release the vehicle. Walk to the left side of your tow truck and strike [U]. The vehicle will be removed.

Service Calls

Your team is able to accept service calls from players. These can be calls about stolen vehicles or a standard service call where you need to tow someone’s car. When arriving at the scene, you can get a service call payment added to your paycheck.

You can set your service call availability in the top right-hand corner of your screen. Setting it to the red status will disable service calls for you.

If a service call is made for your team, you’ll see an Accept/Decline option in the top right-hand corner.
