CDMA Group Reliant Towing Tow Truck Damage to my Vehicle/Drop Scam Austin Texas
At 4:30am on 10/29/13, I was awakened to the beeping of my truck alarm. I went outside at my apartment complex to see what was going on. My wife went out on the balcony overlooking the truck. There was a tow truck from Reliant Towing backed up to my truck with the intent of hooking up to tow it.
I asked Mr. James Wheland why he intended to tow my truck when it had a parking sticker. He stated that it was illegally parked and intended to tow it. Two of my tires were on the curb of the parking space. When I parked the night before, it was the only parking space and the spaces are so narrow at our apartments that if I wouldn't have parked with two tires on the curb, I would have damaged the vehicle next to me. At the time of the incident, there were other spaces available so I asked Mr. Wheland to move his tow truck so I could move my truck. [continued below]....
I got in my truck and started it. It was in neutral as it is a standard. Mr. Wheland got in his tow truck and raised the forks under the rear of my truck. Because my truck was in neutral and not attached to the tow truck, it rolled forward off the forks of the tow truck. The tow truck forks caused extensive damage to the tailgate, rear quarter panel and rear light of my truck. Words were exchanged between Mr. Wheland and myself and he attempted to strike me with his flashlight. The Austin Police Department was called and a report filed.
The next day, I filed an insurance claim with Reliant Towing's insurance company and after nearly a month of "investigation", they denied the claim based on the fact that my truck was "illegally" parked. On 11/25/2013, I contact Reliant Towing to try to resolve the matter and spoke with Mark, one of the Managers. He stated that they would do nothing further to resolve the damages to my truck as their insurance company had denied the claim.
