Rapid Tow2550 N Nellis Las Vegas, Nevada United States of America
A vacant lot next to a popular fast food busy resturant.. Rapid tow, places signs in places that are not seen by drivers, they watch you walk into the resturant and then boot your vehicle, and tell you to pay $250.00 cash or you will be towed. Is this legal? Somewhat, but if this happens to you, chances are you can find a way to get your money back.. The company is required to place signs with the information at the entrance and the exit. The signs must be visible, the must give you a detailed recipt on exactly how they came up with the $250.00 drop fee. If any of these things are not done properly, you will get your money back.
It is generally a scam and the signs are placed where you cant see them.. Take if the signs are not visible call the police on the non-emergency number, explain the improper dispay of the signs and and you more then likely will get off the boot.. If you dont have time and just want to pay.. Pay the $250.00 get the receipt with all the information on it.. Make sure they didnt make anything up, then call the Nevada Transportation Autority and file a complaint, if the company overcharged or did not have posted signs, (take pictures with your phone) they will be sited, and fined, also required to return your Money..
Its definaltly a scam but unfortunatly legal if the towing company is on the up and up. Unforturaltly there are towing companies like the above who bend the rules to take advantage of you!! Dont just roll over fight back!! I did!
