Where a private tow operator removes a motor vehicle because it is parked in a private parking lot in a manner inconsistent with posted instructions, and such removal is pursuant to a contract between the owner of the private parking lot and the tow operator for the removal of any such improperly parked motor vehicles, such tow operator may collect the following charges from the owner of the motor vehicle, payable before the vehicle is released: up to but not more than $138 for removal and the first 24 hours of storage, and up to but not more than $25 per calendar day thereafter. A private tow operator may not charge a calendar day for storage for days that the private tow operator is not open for the vehicle to be released. In addition to the towing charges, private tow operators may charge an additional fee up to $27 per vehicle for a vehicle transported by a dolly type platform.
