There will be changes in towing and recovery fees and charges which will come into effect from next Saturday.
It was confirmed in November last year by the Commerce Commission that the towing and recovery fees and charges will be reduced to $41.14 for vehicles whose gross weight don’t exceed 3,000kg and that are within the 5km town boundary.
Commerce Commission Chairman Dr Mahendra Reddy said after consultation with the municipal councils, they have sure to increase the charges to $51.14.
Reddy said $10 from this amount will go towards the public councils for their capital developments. The current towing charge is around $80.
