This is outrageous!!! I just got towed, while shopping at one of the stores that I got towed from. Having to hassle with the towing company that is charging me $150.00 for the tow. Everyone on here arguing the fact about the rates are correct to do so. In Port City the going rate for towing is usually around 50 to 65 dollars. If it is outside the city limits, then it is around 35 hook up charge and 3 dollars per mile. The towing company is located only around 9 miles from the distance it was towed -- ILLEGALLY -- but the most they could charge me if I asked them to do so would be 65 bucks, at the most. 30 bucks in mileage and 35 for the hookup. And the companies are making a profit in doing that. But being it isn't a tow initiated by the customer of the vehicle, they say they need 150 now to recoup the cost. So if you're able to make a profit from one customer at 65, how can you argue the fact of gas being the reason you HAVE or NEED to charge 150 now for just certain tows. Sorry, but I'm not buying it. If you can turn a profit of a tow of a certain vehicle, from and too a certain location for one customer, you can't argue that you need around a 300% increase for another customer to tow the exact same vehicle to the exact same destination. Argument on those facts are just futile!
