Towed By: kitsap towingLocation: kitsap county
Reason Towed: left over night at county park
I sold a 1975 ford to a friend who did not finish paying me, he parked it over night at a county park, it gets impounded. I had done my sellers report. the "friend" was unable to even retrieve his belongings from the truck. so i kindley go to the D.O.L. and pull my sellers report. I go to the towing company and there were kind enough to cut the impound charges in half, they were also kind enough to give me a couple of days to come up with the money, which my "friend" said he would do. He did nothing. I am now responsible for the impound costs. Towing company gives me another day. I pay the 220.00 and get the truck. The towing company was more than kind. There are good towing companies and I can say that Kitsap Towing is one of them. the story goes on with no fault of the towing company I sell the truck again to another "friend" who doesn't pay me, so i sell it again. He somehow justifies his not paying me and steals 663.00 dollars of my property. Again there is no title change.

Criminal company
Amount: $380.00
Posted by: David c in Sacramento, CA.Posted: December 17th, 2017 10:12AM
Reason Towed: Partially red zone
Davis towing is a rip-off, safe to say a criminal company. They towed my car from a private property. The reason was the car apparently was parked on a “partially red” zone. When I called them to recover the car they were rude, no manners what so ever, and they said if I’m late even for 5 minuets from the appointment I have to come next day. They were very specific about CASH-ONLY ( repeated multiple times). They don’t give any paperwork ( I wonder why) . I’m sure they have a lot to hide from the IRS. Anyway stay away from them at any cost.

Quick response towing rip off!
Amount: $380.00
Posted by: Victim1000 in Patapasco Baltimore Maryland, MD.Posted: September 22nd, 2017 04:09AM
Reason Towed: Parking in a fire lane
Parked to rush into the store and got towed. Went to get the car right away. Got charged $380. It was less than 3 miles (I literally walked 20 mins to get there). No credit card, no debit card , they just want cash. No explanation about how they got to the 380 figure. You pay outside before you can check you car or the contents but the receipt they make you sign says that you agree that your car was fine and all your stuff was there. Then as soon as you get in some huge fat guy says "go to your car and get out or I'm gonna close this gate...seriously!!!! Worst people one earth. And they have an ATM that only dispenses 360 at a time and charges you $3 each time so you have to do a minimum of 2 transactions

Scamming in Detroit
Amount: $410.00
Posted by: Kris Starosta in Detroit, MI.Posted: August 25th, 2017 01:08PM
Towed By: Goch & SonsLocation: Wayne State Campus Detroit Michigan
Reason Towed: parked in a "non campus" location
My husband and I went to a sporting event on the Wayne State Campus. We parked in what was apparently a non-campus location. There were no signs stating that we couldn't park there, so we took advantage of the spot. Bad on us. The tow company towed the car at 4:45 pm and when we got back to the lot at 5 pm, we were told the impound lot was closed and we would have to wait until the next day to retrieve the vehicle. They would also not allow us to pay with credit card or check, cash only. I wonder why cash only! Someone's pockets got lined! $400 for a 2 minute tow is outrageous! I am going to go to everyone who will listen and get this company shut down! Yes, we were apparently in the wrong for parking where we did, but who are they to tell us cash only, no receipt, and no paper records to verify anything! This is a BS company that is scamming folks out of hard earned cash. I recommend everyone in the area be on the look out for these guys!

Roommate's License Suspended- Car Impounded
Amount: $275.00
Posted by: Cera Ward in Vallejo, CA.Posted: April 11th, 2017 07:04AM
Towed By: Palace GarageLocation: San Leandro, CA
Reason Towed: Expired License
My roommate (who is on the car insurance) got pulled over and found out her license was still suspended. I couldn't be reached right away (though we're unsure if they would have allowed me to come get the car). I had to go to the CHP office to get a release form, and was able to pick the car up from the lot the same day. My car was stored for less than 5 hours. The cost to get the car out of impound was $275.
