Occasionally, Victoria Auto Towing must dispose of stored vehicles through the “Lien Sale” process. This may occur if both a vehicle’s registered owner and legal owner fail to recover that vehicle.

Vehicles that have been abandoned by their owners are generally not “premium” used cars or may have hundreds of dollars in back fees due to the Department of Motor Vehicles.

A listing of specific vehicles currently available for sale is posted at our business office.


Notice to Buyers

Vehicles are auctioned and/or sold to recover money owed for towing, storage and impound related charges.  This “Lien Sale” process is accomplished in compliance with the State of California Vehicle Code Section 22851.

While we strive to be honest about the condition of vehicles being sold, our knowledge as to the condition of lien sale vehicles, is limited.  We do not know the history of the lien sale vehicles, or what the drivability / reliability of any vehicle may be.

Accordingly, Victoria Auto Towing makes no claims as to the “Road Worthiness” of any vehicle, nor the mechanical condition of any vehicle or parts thereon.

Victoria Auto Towing offers no warranty or guarantee on any vehicle and all sales are final.

The Buyer assumes all responsibility and liability for any vehicle they purchase, including that the vehicle is suitable for their intended use.
