The cost to get a car out of impound in Texas will vary. It will depend on which county it was towed in and which company towed it. To find out where the car is, call the police department and they will tell you. Then you can call the towing company to find out what the fees will be.

Can car be towed without key?

Yes, cars can be towed without a key, and most cars that are towed do not have keys. If a car is towed for being illegally parked, they don't get in touch with the owner of the car and ask to have the key so the car can be towed, they just tow it. The car does not have to have its engine turned on in order to tow it; the tow truck just pulls it along.

If your vehicle was towed from a no parking spot and your vehicle is damaged in the process who is responsible?

The towing company (contractor) is responsible for any damage it causes while removing a car from a public street, and the municipality may have liability if it has its own employees tow vehicles, rather than a contractor. You may also find a sign on private property that says, "Unauthorized vehicles towed at owner's risk and expense." Oddly enough, this means what it says, and you have "assumed the risk" of damage and agreed to pay the reasonable expenses of towing (and storage) when you trespassed on such a parking spot.

Does auto policy cover damage done when the vehicle towing the utility trailer is damaged?

In dealing with a towed trailer, the liability coverage will extend from the vehicle towing to the trailer being towed but the physical damage coverage does not extend. This means that if you are backing up at a fuel station and the trailer backs into another vehicle then the liability will cover the damage done to the other car that is damaged by the trailer. Any damage done to the trailer itself will not be covered.
