Retrieving a Towed Vehicle

Vehicles may be towed for many different reasons.

If your vehicle was towed by the Ypsilanti Police Department, it will be towed by

Only the registered owner of the vehicle can obtain the vehicle release. Please bring a photo ID, preferably your driver’s license with you. There is no cost for the release form.

Budget/Stadium towing will not allow owners to enter their property or view a vehicle without a release form. We suggest you pick your vehicle up as soon as possible. The tow company charges storage fees that accumulate per day. Budget/Stadium is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Vehicles Towed Due to Unpaid Parking Tickets
Vehicles may be towed if the owner amasses 6 or more unpaid parking citations. If your vehicle was towed for this reason, you will first need to pay the fine.
  1. Call the City Treasurer’s office at 734-483-1103 to find out the amount due.
  2. Go to the City Treasurer's office on the third floor of City Hall, 1 S. Huron, and pay the amount due. Payment for tickets on a towed vehicle may be made with cash or credit; the City of Ypsilanti accepts Mastercard, American Express, or Discover. You will get a paid receipt.
  3. Take your paid receipt and your picture ID to the
    Ypsilanti Police Station
    505 W Michigan Avenue
    Ypsilanti, MI 48197

    They can then issue you a vehicle release form to take to Budget / Stadium Towing.
