Today I went there to do some business at the post office, get lunch at Subway and deposit a check at BofA. Parked my car at the plaza and noticed some a tow truck parked in one of the spots (the hadicapped one, if I am not mistaken) and a fat guy sleeping in it. Well, we all get tired once in a while.
Ran to the post office, got what I needed at Subway, went to the BofA, came back in about 3 minutes.... the car was gone. Called the police, they said that my car was probably towed and recommended to call the number on the signs. I called, and the happy voice told me that yes, they have it, and it will be just $198.50 to get it back. Walked there and paid the fees.
I would have understood when the car is towed for not conducting the business at this shopping center. I would have understood if it was towed after being parked there for quite a while. As the law says, it has to be a reasonable time. 3 minutes on the half-empty parking lot after conducting 2 counts of business there for me is not reasonable, it is just a rip-off. And a special thank you to the property management that hired that so called towing company. Besides filing an official complaint, I will also change the location where I shop.
