SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - June 29, 2010) - AutoReturn, the leading towing management and logistics company, today announced that it is leveraging its proven towing logistics and management platform into a significant new market segment -- the insurance industry.
Insurance companies currently tow millions of accident vehicles each year, and AutoReturn is ideally positioned to streamline this process, end-to-end, with its towing logistics solution and services which have been reliably deployed by municipalities for years.
AutoReturn will help insurance companies reduce claims costs by providing a one-stop solution for the towing of accident vehicles to direct repair facilities and salvage auction companies, using a nationwide network of local tow operators.
AutoReturn is actively seeking high-quality, professional towing service providers to join its network. Unlike other national networks, AutoReturn does not focus on the crowded, low-paying, emergency towing market. Network partners are paid competitive rates and are able to increase utilization of existing equipment and personnel by performing secondary tows within agreed-upon timeframes.
"Most insurance company tows are performed at retail prices and managed manually, increasing claims costs and customer premiums," said John Wicker, Chief Executive Officer of AutoReturn. "AutoReturn's proven towing logistics capabilities, paired with our new national network, will provide an attractive alternative for our insurance company clients."
Capable towing service providers interested in more information about becoming an approved member of the AutoReturn national network should call or email the company at:

AutoReturn is the leader in municipal towing management and logistics solutions, partnering with municipalities and existing local tow operators to help achieve efficiency, superior service, and increased cost recovery. AutoReturn was formed in 2002 to revolutionize the municipal towing industry. Recognizing the presence of a common set of problems in municipal towing across the country, AutoReturn realized that a new type of company was required, a municipal towing management company. In March of 2004 AutoReturn assumed overall responsibility for towing, storage, customer service and unclaimed vehicle disposal for the approximately 70,000 annual tows under exclusive contract with the City and County of San Francisco.
