I live in an apartment complex Alamance Reserve who has a parking rule of no obstuction of more than one parking spot which I did violate and my car was towed in the night. I contacted the complex staff the next day who only had a phone number and did not know where the towing company took my car or what they charged but still allowed this rip off towing company to operate on their property. I then called thdd towing service number and got someonr after 3 hours and tried to find their lot which is hidden at best, but I find the lot and again called the Teixeira towing company who finally show up an hour later. The company representative was rude and tried to collect the $205.00 fee in cash first but finall accepted my debit card to hich I questioned the out of line fee to which his esponse was if you want the car pay the fee! Subsequently have called several towing companies in Burlington and found that Teixeira towing is at $100.00 too high!!!

Too High?

AUTHOR: Robert - (United States)

POSTED: Wednesday, November 14, 2018

The only way that their price is too high is if they are violating any of the towing regulations. What OTHER companies charge has nothing to do with this.  However, as a side note it is always amazing how other companies are so willing to tell you what their competitors should charge.

But I would bet you were not comparing apples to oranges when you called the other companies. Having a tow company come out and tow a car at a scheduled time is not the same as coming out and towing someone for parking violations. If this happened "after hours" there is usually an additional charge. If you go to pick up your car again "after hours" that often adds another charge. If your truck is oversized that often adds additional charges.

The fact is that you parked illegally, you admit you did it, and you got caught.  If your apartment management doesn't know what they charge then take it up with them.  If they agree that the price is too high they may decide to switch. 

Finally, if you still think you were overcharged you can look up your cities towing regulations for when you get towed for parking violations.  If they are charging more than legally allowed, you may have a valid complaint.
