San Luis Rey Auto Salvage andTowing Astronomical Fees / Rip Off Oceanside California
My 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 truck was towed on Memorial Day of this year. From where my truck was towed from (North El Camino Real) to their impound lot (also on North El Camino Real) was approximately half a mile at best. Why do they have such high hook up fees? They are charging me a $180.00 hook up fee to go maybe half a mile and on top of all of that, they are charging me a daily storage rate of $55.00. That's totally absurd!!! How can towing companies charge such astronomical fees and get away with it? Aren't they regulated. Now to date my total to retrieve my truck is well over one thousand dollars and up for sale as of July 1st. if I don't reclaim it by then. My truck is in superb condition and it was towed by Oceanside Police due to my driver license issue. The Oceanside Police officer placed a mandatory thirty day hold on my truck and at the $55.00 a day rate, it's going to be very difficult to get mt truck back. Why did the officer place a 30 day hold in the first place? I felt that he did not have to do that in the first place. Taking my truck and me having to go to the DMV to get my DL reinstated should had been punishment enough. I've written the tow company a letter asking them not to sell my truck (auction) and to work with me to reclaim my truck. As of this writing, I've gotten no response from them.
