Complaint Detail(s)

7/22/2016 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: I had this company tow a fully loaded work truck from our yard to a diesel shop. When they were putting the truck up on their flat bed they did not put it in neutral and damaged the transmission, drive shaft and rear end. In stead of having the diesel shop fix the damage they insisted on trying to fix it themselves on the diesel shop property. After several days of trying to fix it they purchased parts for the repair and let the diesel shop finish the repairs. The yoke they provided was the wrong size and a couple weeks after the repairs were completed the truck started to leak transmission fluid and there was a vibration in the drive shaft. We found out it was the wrong yoke, which caused even more damage. I asked the tow truck company for some compensation, such as a free tow, and they refused. I asked to speak to the owner and was refused. I was given an email address, which I was told was the owners, and emailed him of the situation and never got a returned email. Because of their mistake in lifting the truck on a flat bed, their mistake with the parts, and their slow response time, it has cost me more money in repair bills and lost work time.

Desired Settlement: I would like to be refunded for the $150 tow bill to make up for some of the cost of the repairs that I have incurred because of their mistakes.

Additional Notes

Complaint: On 11-29-2013 Arlington Wrecker was called by ******* Towing to tow my tractor trailer from ***** in Jacksonville FL. They said that I was illegally parked, which I also disagree with, but my issue is that when they towed me Arlington Wrecker damaged my truck. I have a APU unit on the right side of my truck and during the tow the casing on the APU was damaged and needs to be replaced. My truck is now also missing a fog light cover also. The part on the APU that needs to be replaced costs $269, an hour of labor to install it is $90, and the fog light cover is about $60. I paid $800 to get my truck out of impound, and want to be paid for my damages. Arlington Towing is liable for the damages that were incurred during towing.

Desired Settlement: I want payment for the damages.

Business Response:

To Whom It May Concern:

We acknowledged that we unintentionally damaged the APU on Mr. ******' tractor.  We never denied the damage occurred, nor did we tell Mr. ****** that we wouldn't rectify the problem.  The APU has been repaired and Mr. ****** has picked up his tractor.  This issue has been resolved.


***** ********

Consumer Response:


I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me.
