The Victorian Government, through its agents, is the sole authority for despatching tow trucks to accident damaged vehicles, via the ACCIDENT ALLOCATION CENTRE. TEL: 131 176.
This service determines which independently owned towing service will be allocated an official job number to attend the accident scene for the specific purpose of towing your car direct to your nominated destination.
The towing service must, by law, follow your instructions.
DO NOT SIGN THE TOWING DOCKET UNTIL IT SHOWS YOUR INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE DESTINATION!
DO NOT PAY THE DRIVER!
WE WILL PAY ON YOUR BEHALF!
Do not allow the law to be broken by permitting your vehicle to be removed from the accident scene by a towing operator who has not been directed to you by the Accident Allocation Centre.
Do not attempt to drive an un-roadworthy vehicle from the accident. It is against the law! You stand the chance of causing more damage and you run the risk of invalidating your Insurance cover.
When a tow truck arrives, instruct the driver to tow your car directly to our workshop.
