The professionals at Greenwood Towing, Inc. have won the confidence of public officials in the city of Baltimore, securing multi-year licenses to handle police-initiated towing there. When officers determine a vehicle is abandoned, inoperable, or illegally parked, our team is among those authorized to tow it away. Contact us at (410) 669-1661 to learn more about us and our work on behalf of local municipalities.

Serving the Public Good

A dozen towing companies submitted proposals during the city’s last application cycle, and just five — including Greenwood — were awarded licenses. We successfully navigated the competitive process thanks to our unwavering commitment to professionalism. Greenwood’s uniformed tow-truck operators are certified by the Towing & Recovery Association of America and the Department of Transportation, and our trucks are equipped with everything needed to relocate light- and medium-duty vehicles when we are dispatched. Police-initiated jobs comprise almost a third of our towing business each year, and citywide volume is high enough that drivers unable to locate their vehicles after special events are encouraged to call 311 to determine if they’ve been towed.

Vehicles not claimed after legal notification are eligible to be junked and sold at auctions open only to state-licensed automotive dismantlers and recyclers (ADRs). Learn more about that process on our frequently asked questions page.

Parking Patrol

Greenwood Towing also is a licensed trespass-towing provider in three jurisdictions: Baltimore, Anne Arundel County, and Howard County. Each government entity puts applicants through an annual approval process, allowing licensees to work with private-property owners to monitor parking facilities for unauthorized vehicles. Scofflaws are towed to our secure storage facility, which is open 24/7 to facilitate retrieval. And since cash is the only currency accepted at our redemption center, we also have an ATM on the property for drivers’ convenience.
