I need to understand more about this situation. When was the vehicle impounded and why was it impounded? To whom did they send the notice of impoundment? Who currently has ownership and possession of the vehicle?

In Indiana, a towing service or storage yard may dispose of an abandoned vehicle not less than thirty (30) days after the date on which the towing service removed the abandoned vehicle. They must provide 15 days notice of their intent to claim the vehicle.

Since the car has water damage, you may be able to negotiate with the tow company. I suspect that all they want to recover is their towing costs. If you can afford to pay them, they might give you the car back.

If the car does not function, it may be you can break it down and sell the parts. Ironically, you will probably get more money for it that way than if you sold the entire car. The last resort would be to sell the whole car for scrap metal.

I hope this helps. Please go ahead and rate me. I get no credit for my work for you until you rate me. If you have any follow-up or clarification questions, please ask! There is no additional fee. If I have fully answered your question, I would appreciate it if you ranked my service excellent/5 stars at the top of the page. A BONUS is also appreciated if you think that I have earned one.
