depends on how they had to tow. For example, FWD car in gear w/parking brake on....they would have to pop the locks to release the brake and take it out of gear....no real reason to rummage through your sh*t, but I'm sure they could.

It really depends on the tow truck driver we have ONE company that we use for our business because they are honest which is not a job qualification for be a tow truck driver.

They shouldn't have to pop the locks to take the car out of gear. I thought most cars had a switch underneath - on the tranny - that allowed the car to be put into nuetral.

Didn't somebody on here have their truck rolled out of their driveway by using this method, and they got a trailer stolen?

If you left something illegal in plain sight and a police officer showed up then yes....

A tow truck driver will sometimes inventory your vehicle when its been towed, depending on the towing company.

why?

Definitely not if the car was a standard...not sure about auto trans though.

cool, i hope you're right. i'm afraid they might try to throw some locksmith charges in with the tow charges.

yeah...it's called a flatbed! Don't matter what you do, you will NOT stop them from towing your . Turn the wheel to lock, leave it in gear, brake on, whatever, it doesn't matter....I have seen a car dragged away like it was a screaming kid throwing a temper tantrum. Nothing you can do....
