"I was out in Casa
earlier this week, when I started having trouble with my car. I parked outside of a WalMart, and my car refused to start" back up again, A friend had recommended
to me, so I called him. He promptly answered and I told him what was going on. I felt that the price was fair for how far he needed to tow my car (I live in
). He was friendly and made sure all my questions were answered. I would definitely call him again if i need any
services.

"I was driving home from work at around 11pm when my tire blew out on the side of the freeway. I tried getting ahold of a few
companies, but" the only one that answered could not get to me for a few hours. I found
through Google, so i gave him a call. I told him my tire blew out, and he said he could get to me in 30 minutes to help me out. When he got there, he realized the replacement tire was damaged, so he offered to tow my car 12 miles to my house for $60. He was very knowledegable and fair with his pricing.

Hiring the right tow truck after a car accident or breakdown

Whether you've had a wreck or a breakdown, before you call a towing company, check out these guidelines to get the most from your tow truck buck.

Extricating your car in snowy or icy conditions can sometimes prove tricky. (Photo courtesy of Angie’s List member Deborah S. of Laconia, N.H.)

A crucial part of dealing with ice and snow involves making sure that your car can handle the punishment storms can dish out, and how to stay safe.

Agreed on one price and once service was provide he changed the rate and threated to tow to his storage lot if I didn't pay his new price. Had to call the local police. Had to pay more money. Shady people, I should have known when he called over and over to make sure I told the state trooper I had him as my tow company.

My car broke down in my driveway in which I realized it was my timing chain. I called
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
cause I knew him from grammar school and he towed my car over the weekend which was nice. After he inspected the car he told me it was the timing chain. He also said my front
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
doesn't look good so I replaced that while he had my car. 500 miles later my car engine failed in which multiple cylinders broke and I needed a new engine! All star wanted another $2300 for a new engine after already taking me for $1700! I feel something was not done right the first time and found a better price with longer warranty from another mechanic. I wish things worked out better cause we were good friends in grammar school but I guess things are different now. I just don't want others to suffer the way I did so that's why I am writing my review.

I am a single mom with 3 boys. My car that I let my middle son use to find work was damaged by being forced off the road in a construction zone and damaged a custom wheel, CV axial, and tore off the oil drain
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
leaving the car inoperable. The car was located approximately 32 miles from my home. I made all the necessary repairs (changing out all 4 tires to put the car in a state of mobility). The day before I went to U-Haul to rent an Auto Tow Dolly and borrowed a neighbors truck to try to bring the car back; that experience was a TOTAL NIGHTMARE! U-Haul did not lock the
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
of the tow dolly to the ball hitch on the truck (did not know this until I pulled it 32 miles to the location) we attempted to push the car on to the tow dolly when the equipment tore off the front bumper and caused the
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
to come off and ram into the tail gate of the borrowed truck and damage the paint (This is actually when I realized the equipment was NOT secured to the truck). Aggravated and ready to give up, we pushed the car back into a parking spot, called roadside assistance for U-Haul and demanded to have the trailer secured before taking it back 32 miles; ultimately resulting in the car not being moved from the hotel parking lot.
I did not consider calling a tow service due to the enormously high rates associated with wrecker services and the distance I needed it to be towed. I went on to Angie's List just to see what I could find (never have used them) and I found A &
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
's
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
Service here in my area. I spoke with
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
who I told him all that I had been through and my concern with the cost that may be involved in what I needed but at this point really did not have a choice but to get help. I explained that I also needed if at all possible to "swing by: the dealership first to have a key programmed so that the car would start when it was repaired (the only key was lost by my son). Mr.
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
told me he could help me with my request and the big question I had was what is this going to cost me? Mr.
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
quoted me $150, I asked is that all? He replied, "yes
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
'am". I was so excited and said YES on the spot!
He had the tow truck in the shop getting a few repairs made but promised to call me as soon as he got the truck out of the shop (My need was not immediate and I had time to wait for him to make his repairs he needed on his truck) he called me later that afternoon and said he was available if I still needed his services and again I said without hesitation, YES!
Mr.
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
did exactly what he said he'd do for me, waiting at the dealership while they programmed the key and then brought it to my home as promised.
I was so happy andd appreciative that I threw in an extra $15 for his time in waiting to let the dealer do what they needed to do. I gave him the biggest hug and could not thank him enough for making my nightmare come to an end!
PLEASE if you are in need of a tow service, give A &

a call. They are VERY Professional and Reasonable. they are not out to rip you off and leave you broke. Just an honest company trying to make a living like everyone else!

Driver showed up right on time. Acted in a professional manner. Took his time to properly attach the vehicle to the tow truck with multiple safety systems. I felt confident and secure that the vehicle would arrive safe and sound at the car repair shop.

I work at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center as a contracted employee. It is extremely difficult to gain access to the base since it is a Federal facility. I had locked my purse, keys, phone in my van. I called 5 different
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
companies to help me and finally got one to come out. After his truck was inspected, it turned out that this man didn't have proof of insurance with him and therefore was not allowed on the base. I had to start all over again trying to find someone.
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
agreed to come out. He was very prompt, had a great attitude, and best of all, had all the correct paperwork! He was able to unlock my car in less than a minute.

*****Beware of
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
Services in
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
, NJ 07070
They handle local municipals and Turnpike and Parkway
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
calls.
I had a horrible experience when I picked up my car from
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
Services in
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
, NJ. (There was a miscommunication on the registration of my vehicle, the town of East
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
presume the vehicle was "stolen" but really the plates were in transition from old to new, therefore they called
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
to tow the vehicle on 7/16/2015)
I inspected the vehicle on the premises on 7/17/2015 before driving away and noticed damage on the ride side side skirt of my car (irregular to normal driving, looks like something rubbed against it and ripped the paint and scratched the top coat in other areas, seems to be metal and could be from
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
/
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
/tools from
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
the vehicle onto the flatbed tow truck when they were working on the car since they did not have the key to move the actual vehicle)
I notified to the staff in the dispatch office of the damage and asked how I can process a claim to get it repaired or at least looked at. The owner I presume that came out and said no way and was very rude with dealing with the situation. No evidence can be provided when I asked for it and they mentioned they don't check the vehicles prior to
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
them. This is violation of the ordinance by the way, also witnesses saw the
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
operator taking pictures of the cars (they towed another vehicle as well) while
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
so then why can't I see the pictures (if there was damage on the car prior to
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
, then no issue with the
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
company, right? easy process one would think)
*This vehicle was repainted only about a year ago, I inspect my vehicle prior to going to repair shops so I know that that damage was done by the
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
company and not from normal driving.
Unfortunately I was cursed at and had the owner say derogatory things about drivers who have their vehicles towed there and made a rude comment about homosexuals.
I left without a resolution because the owner just left me midway through a conversation I was trying with him to find out how we can resolve the issue. He said I quote "Hire an attorney and
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
me, I am not Fxxxxxx paying you anything"
I deal with a lot of people and businesses and this is the first time that I ever met someone who was unprovoked cursed out a paying customer (me) who just merely asking questions about a process which to most
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
companies would be normal. (Getting your car towed is not a daily occurrence for the normal driver, but for a company that deals with this day in and day out, you would imagine they have a protocol or sign that says any damages occur here is not the responsibility of the company etc. etc., no they have no signs posted on the fence or building or mentioned of this on their invoice or office area.)
Aside from all the confrontational discussion I had with the owner, I am a paying customer for a bill that is $376 for a tow that is 1-2 miles away from their shop, makes no difference but I feel that I should get at least minimal customer service or support if I have a valid claim. (I am not making a ridiculous request, just asking normal
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
questions)
**They calculated 7/15/2015 as the initial date of the tow but other records and witnesses say it is 7/16/2015, so
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
company charged additional day for storage. This could also be an error on the office who processed the report, human error they could have meant to write down 7/16 but wrote 7/15.
***Please do yourself a favor and do not deal with this kind of company who treat human beings like this. You are a human being and you deserve some decency when dealing with a business that is contracted by the municipal of East
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
and the state of New

While vacationing in the Outer Banks (Corolla) we returned home to find the car radiator leaking in the driveway. The nearest Toyota dealer and nearest Firestone/Goodyear shop were 1 1/2 hours away. I checked with
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
Auto Club and they said if they wee to tow the car and have repairs done they would call
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
's. I then called
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
's and they were very helpful. I initially thought that the red fluid was transmission fluid and I told
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
's I could get the car there in the morning. By 6 o'clock I decide I better get it towed just in case and called
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
.
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
's (Bill) came right away and he didn't complain at all about having to came out after I told him I would get it there myself. He couldn't have been nicer and diagnosed immediately that it was the radiator not the transmission (so I would have overheated if I had tried to drive it there myself). Bill said they would call me by noon the next day and sure enough they did. He called and said that Toyota wanted $100 more for the part than a parts dealer and he wanted to know what I wanted to do. I appreciated that honesty and felt more comfortable that I wouldn't be ripped off while on vacation. Bill said he would try to get the job done the next day depending on when the part arrived. I called in the afternoon the next day and he said he had just received the part and if I didn't hear from him in the evening he would call me first thing when it was completed. 9:30 the next morning he called as promised and the car was ready. I went to get the car and the lot was PACKED with cars. He said they brought in 15 cars the day our car broke down. I couldn't be happier with the customer service. He was upfront about cost, called when he said he would call and had the car repaired as promised with no "additional add-ons" without my permission.

I chose
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
because the company was so highly rated on Angie's List. Everything was a smooth as the other reviews on the website. I called
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
the day before to schedule an appointment for the next day and he quoted me the cash price. He called me the next day to let me know he was running late because of the weather, but still managed to show up early and tow the car quickly to its destination. Everything was exactly as he said it would be during the initial phone call. I would definitely use
San Mateo Towing Services Provider Name Locked
next time I need a tow.
