My friend's dad was a tow truck driver for 20+ years before he went to work for GM, he's got a million weird stories.

LTR - how do you deal with customers who claim you damaged something during the tow if you a) did, b) didn't?

#7, THere's claim forms they can fill out and list the damage they claim we did, but in most cases, it's easy to prove it wasn't us since the stuff they try to claim is inconsistent with what could be damaged during a tow (we've had people try to claim that check engine lights comming on, engine problems and dents on the roof that are so old, they have rust on them were our fault, etc.) A manager will inspect the damage, and 99% of the time will tell them "that wasn't us, it couldn't have been caused by what we did" and every time you tow in a car, you inspect it for damages and mark up EVERYTHING you can find wrong with it from scratches to stone chips to preexsisting damage. If they still want to at that point, I guess they could sue us/take us to court, but nobody does, they're just trying to get you back for towing them most of the time. WHen they find out there's paperwork and waiting involved, they usualy just grumble and go away.

#9, kind of like how I rent cars


"ok altima, I circled all the scratches...you can take a look and see if there are more"

altima: same them but there are there 5 others.


original clerk: Myself and other clerk will look. I dont see them, other clerk do you see them?

Other: yeah, he right. mark them.


Another other hand, budget place desjardin/montreal central station is a great renter. Rented times from them, fucking great.

#9, Interesting. Wha't the most common damage that can result from towing?

As a side note, around here towing is dead. Now the cars are winched/driven onto platforms.

#11, There really isn't, if you're not a knucklehead, there's simply no way to damage a towed car unless you're doing something wrong.

#12, Depending on the car and the type of hook used, scraped bumpers can be a problem.

#13, Not if you know what you're doing, if it's too low to get the stinger bar under it, you get a jack. But, I picked up a brand new 07' Jag KX with this truck, and didn't scuff a thing. Basicaly, there is no way you can damage a car towing it unless you as the operator screw up. Nothing about the towing process can possibly damage a car.

#14, Ah, newer tow trucks. The only kind I have any experience with are the kind with big metal hooks dangling off the back.

I knew a guy who got the bumper to his Mustang supposedly torn off by a tow truck driver, I don't know if it was totally torn off or just damaged. He liked to embelish.

#15, Hook hoists have gone the way of the dinosaur, everyone now uses some kind of self-loading wheel lift, we have the Eagle Claw system on these trucks. It's quicker to hook up, less likely to damage.

#17, Well there you go...the shop I worked at (56958) had a 1970s-vintage International and an early '80s Ford rollback.

You and your fancy modern tow trucks. ;)

Well, I still have a hook on the back, but that's for the winch
