Impound Lot Overview

Vehicles left at airport lots in excess of 30 days are subject to impound by the Port Authority Police.

You must obtain a release before you can pick up your vehicle. Some Port Authority facilities will store your vehicle temporarily before moving it to a towing company lot.

Documents required for release:

  • Valid driver's license
  • Valid insurance
  • Proper ownership and registration papers

Agents for owner must provide the documents listed above in addition to a notarized "Letter of Authorization" that permits the agent to claim the vehicle for the owner.

Note: The towing contractor will collect both a tow fee and daily storage fee. Fees assessed by the tow company are not negotiable with the Port Authority of NY & NJ. Fees are accepted in certified checks or money orders only at all facilities except for Newark Liberty and JFK. Newark Airport is also only accepting money orders or certified bank checks as acceptable forms of payment. Impounds related to an arrest may require a district attorney's release.
