Accident towing and storage charges
We advise the Minister for Roads on:
- whether the current fees are appropriate
- whether unregulated services should be regulated (and what fees they should charge)
- the relevant productivity adjustment factor that applies to annual changes in fees.
We reviewed the fees charged for vehicle towing and storage after an accident within Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula.
We recommend that regulated 'under cover' vehicle storage fees be increased from $17.00 per day to $25.00 per day.
We recommended that the existing level of fees and annual productivity adjustment factor continue to apply and the Minister for Roads regulate basic salvage services.
We recommended that all accident towing and storage fees be increased by 12.5 per cent and then be adjusted annually for inflation, minus a productivity adjustment factor.
