I have been hearing a lot of towing stories on the news and from my peers lately, some of them are really awful. Since the economy is crisis many of good and successful towing company are going out of business. . A lot more towing companies will start towing illegally parked (or just say they were illegally parked) cars in order to make ends meet. For Your own sake take the time and make sure that the company your dealing with is insured, and tells you the rate up front- do not wait until your car has been towed in otder to deal with prices . And please check for signs and painted curbs before you decide to park your car- therefore you will not even get towed and have to deal with all of this headache. .Checking on the current news in the towing scams we came across this interesting story in Denver, Colorado of a baby towed away with a car that was illegally parked. Now the report does not say if charges were filed, this is one of the main reasons you will never see one of orange Towing representative tow a car without the owners permission.
