• Don't Get Scammed! A Complete List of MMDA-Accredited Tow Trucks

    If you can't find the tow truck's plate number on this list, do not submit to or cooperate with the "towing personnel.
  • List of MMDA-accredited tow trucks

    Here's a motoring scenario for you: You're walking back to your car when you see it being towed by suspicious-looking men with a dilapidated tow truck. When you introduce yourself and ask the men to identify themselves, they assure you that they are an MMDA-accredited towing company tasked to rid public roads of illegally parked vehicles. But they won't show you a proper ID.

    How do you know they're telling the truth?

    Well, we'll help make life easier for you. Here's the list of "MMDA-accredited towing services," as found on the agency's website. If you can't find the tow truck's plate number on this list, do not submit to or cooperate with the "towing personnel." In all likelihood, you're being scammed (or worse, your car is being stolen from you right under your nose).

    We just don't know if the list is 100% up-to-date. The MMDA website says this list was updated "as of May 12, 2015." If you check the list, there are only two tow trucks assigned to Arcson Towing Services, the company currently suspended due to the extortion charges leveled against its personnel. The tow truck (AVA-4494) involved in the May 23 incident isn't included in the list. This might simply be further proof that our government agencies are not very diligent when it comes to updating their websites.

    The list includes a total of 30 towing companies and 72 tow trucks. Indicated in parentheses are the tow truck numbers assigned to the vehicles. We suggest you print this list, laminate it and keep it in your car's glove compartment. You never know when you're going to need it.
