Towed By: Jones TowingLocation: Mountains behind potter
Reason Towed: Distraction
I had slid off of the road and a tree kept me from going into the creek. I left my vehicle to get to work on time and was arranging to get it recovered after work. When I returned my car was gone. Apparently someone called the CHP and they had my vehicle towed. The tow company is charging me $300.00 an hour for 5 hours of service and $100.00 for storage. With the wages and cost of living how could someone be able to pay this?

Dallas tow charges
Amount: $165.00
Posted by: chewie in Dallas, TX.Posted: September 2nd, 2015 04:09PM
Reason Towed: Various
My own apartment complex has some terrible management policies. There are 3 of us living here, but they only allow 2 vehicles to have resident stickers. So I use the visitor parking, which they chose to eliminate with no warning and earned me 2 tows in 3 days (second was refunded by management) at $165 a pop. Then I was towed for expired inspection recently for 210, but had to leave in there for 3 extra days at the max state-allowed storage fee of $20 plus tax to earn the money. The state max for non-consent is $250. Remember, if you catch them before your car is fully hooked up, they have to let it go for free. Tips for life

Booma in sacramento
Amount: $350.00
Posted by: Davis Tow Inc in sacramento, CA.Posted: December 24th, 2014 09:12AM
Towed By: Davis Tow IncLocation: Sacramento
Reason Towed: Non customer - no event parkign
You forgot to mention that you were towed for parking on someones private private property because you wanted to skip out on the 15$ parking at sleep train arena. Where do you get off whining about your bad decisions?
Its 200$ an hour for the tow with a 1 hour min.
Its 50$ for storage as soon as it hits the impound lot for the first 24 hours and then 50$ for every 24 hours after that.
You elected to pick you vehicle up outside of business hours (8-5) monday to friday.
This incurs a gate fee of half the tow rate. in this case - $100
There were many many signs warning you of what would happen if you parked and went over to the arena...
