Overcharged and Lied To., 3/01/2012

I would not even give this company a negative star they were so bad. My car was towed and stored for 1 week until I was able to get the car out. When I went to pay the amount, they wanted to charge... me for 10 days instead of 9, which then allowed then to charge a ""lien sale"" fee, which was an additional $70. They never provided any proof this was done when I asked. I was then told there was no manager present to speak with and the owner was not there either. The woman at the window said ""I am in charge, I am the only one here"". This company is unethical and uses extortion practices to steal money from people. I would never use this company for anything except a asscan to throw trash in. They are terrible.

BAD BUSINESS, 5/14/2011

I wouldn't even give the one star, but none is not an option. \rSpecialty towing is the most unethical business practices- EVER! They towed my car (which is not made to be towed), dragging it out of... the apartment complex, racing over speed bumps. \r\rThey charged me SEVERAL HUNDRED DOLLARS to get my car back. I tried to negotiate this fee down, but the girl said to me ""why would we make a deal with you, it's a valuable car, we can sell it for a lot of money""! She said this to me SIX times! They told me they put a lien on my car too! (my car is paid for, i have a clean title, they're desperate to steal & sell people's cars!) \r\rRegarding the physical towing - the tow truck driver ADMITTED to me he dragged my car out stating once he was out of the complex he put it on a flat bed. HE LIED. I ran after them, trying to catch up with them and witnessed my car being dragged like a rag. \r\rThis place of 'business' is ripping people off daily. DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE, especially if you have a valuable car.\r\r(note: my apartment manager claimed he did NOT call to have my car towed. I believe this company looks for valuable cars to steal.)

Crooks! And whats up with the fees

I had my car, registered and everything just a bit dirty directly in front of my office. Next day car was not there. I find out it was towed so i go to Specialty Towing and wow those people seemed like such Aholes! rude. Basically car was dirty, and parked in the lot over night, which i do all the time anyways, its a dead office parking lot, very small.... but its not fair, i had to pay about 300 buck just for nothing. ..but what pissed me off was that today at my apartment i see my other car is towed. Im more mad at the apt management cause they know who i am and they could have told me to do something with my car(it was a fixer up er, and yes i was getting it towed today) thats how i found out it was towed. I mean this is crazy, from my car port....

LIARS, CROOKS, VIOLATED MANY VEHICLE CODE LAWS

"The last thing anybody should have to worry about after a car accident is whether the person towing their vehicle is going to rip them off and add to their trouble. and after assuring drivers that the cost of the tow will be covered by their insurance, haul the vehicle to an auto pound." In the end they charge fees which are NOT EVEN COVERED BY INSURANCE. -Illinois govnr. (Illinois passed an act protecting consumers, California needs to jump on the boat and pass an act like this!) They claim to be a legitimate company (they proudly said so many times) SO WHY ARE THEY ENGAGING IN PREDATORY TOWING ACTIONS? They towed my car from PRIVATE PROPERTY (my workplace) to their lot, then knocked me with tow and storage fees AFTER I TOLD THEM THAT I COULD NOT AFFORD THE TOW AND THAT I DID NOT WANT THE CAR TO GO TO THE STORAGE YARD. RICK PETERSON, the tow truck driver, insisted on the tow, his argument? "But I'm already HERE!" I talked to Rick when I was retrieving my car and asked him WHY he took my car and he rudely yelled(exact words): "I LEFT! But It's not like I just left with your car!" then he answered his phone and started yelling at the person on the phone (I was pretty scared) Sounds to me like he just left with my car. I think it's absolutely DISGUSTING that companies like this make their money by hustling victims who have been shaken up at accident scenes.Taking their cars, and forcing them to pay!

LIARS, CROOKS, VIOLATED MANY CALIFORNIA VEHICLE CODE LAWS

BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY AND IT'S PREDATORY TOWING PRACTICES!""The last thing anybody should have to worry about after a car accident is whether the person towing their vehicle is going to rip them off and add to their trouble""- Governor of Illinois, Illinois recently passed an act prohibiting companies like THIS ONE from appearing at accident scenes and ""and after assuring drivers that the cost of the tow will be covered by their insurance, haul the vehicle to an auto pound."" In the end they charge fees which are NOT EVEN COVERED BY INSURANCE.(California needs to jump on the boat and pass an act like this!)They claim to be a legitimate company (they proudly said so many times) SO WHY ARE THEY ENGAGING IN PREDATORY TOWING ACTIONS?My car was towed by Specialty Towing (What specialty??) from private property (my WORKPLACE) following my first car accident (IT WAS NOT IN THE STREET OR OBSTRUCTING TRAFFIC.)The tow driver, RICK PETERSON, hooked up my car, insisted that I NEEDED to have my car towed, that I couldn't leave it there, and that I couldn't drive it beause it was ""undrivable"" (Yet he later drove my car out of the driveway, onto the street, and into the truck bed). I told him, ""I CAN'T AFFORD THE TOW! I can't have my car towed!"" he said ""But we're already HERE!! Don't WORRY. Your insurance will cover it."" I said ""NO I don't think my insurance covers this"" (I have liability insurance) He said ""Your insurance will cover everything!"" I said ""HOLD ON i need to call my insurance company"" and while I was tied up on the phone with the insurance agent, he handed me his business card and DROVE OFF WITH MY CAR!! without a word!!I got off the phone with my insurance company (who, like i said, would not pay the towing company's fees) and I called Specialty Towing immediately asking where the hell my car was, and the girl said ""Your car is currently in tow"" and i said ""WHAT? WHERE IS IT GOING TO?"" she said it was going to their storage yard. I asked her to br

SPECIALTY TOWING ARE CROOKS BAD FOR CITY OF CORONA. DONT USE

They illegally towed my truck because their driver was ""fishing"" which is illegal and my homeowners association told me they did not give any authorization or get notified whatsoever, I even put a note on my window with my phone number asking to be called if it needed to be moved, there were no parking spots avaliable. Don't try calling the police because the police have a contract with the tow yard so they lie for each other. My bill is 420 buck so far and it was towed on monday morning 3/1/10. I dont have the money so im f**ked cuz it goes up every day!

Honest and Professional

My wife was involved in a motor vehicle accident while traveling in Corona. The Corona Police Department called Specialty Towing to assist and a tow truck driver named Ed arrived, within minutes Ed had my wife off the side of the road and in a safe place. I just cant express how professional and competent the driver and staff of Specialty Towing was during our time of need. I would suggest Specialty if in Corona to anyone for great service.
