Best Answer

If the vehicle is not a repossession and is in fact a law enforcement impounded vehicle, in California the answer is, NO. The law in California says "we towing companies" must allow you to pick up your property, however, we are only going to give the property to the legal owner of the vehicle. Therefore, bring them with you, picture ID in hand. No they cannot charge you to get your personal belongings from your car.They can charge a fee if they actually do something like inventory and store your belongings.
