Gresham >Gresham Towing
I had a great experience with Gresham Towing so I was surprised to read the negative reviews. I found out they are under new ownership so that may explain a lot. I give then a thumbs up.
This guy is awesome. There was a nice older man who helped us tow our heavy van in the middle of the night. He only charged 55$- which is like half what everyone else charges. Very nice guy! Thanks!
Hit and Run. I have never taken the time to write a review but since its all I can do about what they did to me here I am. Its 736 pm 2/19/11 I just got home from my hit and run by these people. I was in N Portland headed East when I noticed this tow truck ready to hit me. He was trying to change into my lane. I felt him connect with my car and slammed on my brakes. Lucky no one was hurt. Well not true I am very shaken up and my baby was screaming. The drive keeps going after I have stopped and after following him to the freeway honking my horn he pulls over. I only had minor scratches but I asked him why he would take offf. all he did was try to intimidate me and swear at me then got back in his truck and left. He seemed to be towing someones car at the time.
How can this be legal???. My car was towed by this company in a parking lot with contradicting signs and faded lines on the pavement. I would never willingly park in a no parking area. I have never been towed before. The main complaint is the excessive fee of $359 to get my car out, and then the requirement of paying with cash only. It is 11:30 PM and the lot is way out of town. I did not have that much cash, who does?? I did not have a way to get to the lot, and my asthma meds are in my car. I can not be without them. (Also, I am just visiting Gresham for the weekend) The tow truck driver said he was doing me a favor my letting me get my car that night. I asked why they charged me such a outrageous fee, and he said to look at it like a accident that I just had. I chose to look at it like I had been robbed. I suppose all this will change with the new ordinance passed by the Gresham City Council. It is cracking down on overcharging and predatory practices by towing companies. It is too late for me I guess. Also, they make you put at least one star to publish the review. This business does not deserve any stars!!!
FYI Gresham Towing is a scam!!!.
The other reviewer (Rydm) on here has said almost exactly what has happened to me aside from the situation that has happened to them with the keys to their car!!!
Not saying that will not happen to me when I go to pick my car up, which I can't do until Monday according to the Gresham Tow Company!
This is completely insane that this place is even still in business and believe me I will let it be known to everyone possible about how horrible of a "SO" called company they are! Also I will take any and all legal actions possible and nessacary to, HOPEFULLY, have them shut down!
Avoid like the plague unless you have more money than sense.. I was unlucky enough to have my car impounded by Gresham Towing recently, and I feel compelled to warn others about their incredibly overcharged and unprofessional service. What was originally estimated to be approximately $200 for them to tow my vehicle 6 miles and store it in their "secure" lot for less than 38 hours ended up being over $400. To be fair, when asked about the charges, Gresham Towing claimed that the rates were dictated to them by the Oregon State Police (who had ordered the vehicle impounded in the first place), yet could or would not produce any documentation to that effect. Charges notwithstanding, the real kicker came when I went to claim my vehicle at 9:00 am Monday morning. By 9:09 am I had paid the charges and was taken to where they had stored my car only to find that not only was the vehicle unlocked, but the keys were not even on the premises. In fact, for some unknown reason, the driver of the tow truck had my keys in his possession off site. I had to wait an additional 35 minutes for him to bring them from home. When asked why my keys weren't left in my car, I was told they remove them from the vehicles so the vehicles could be locked up, and that they store the keys in the office for "security reasons". That's all well and good, but it didn't explain why my car was unlocked and the keys were "elsewhere". Over the years I have had some experience with various local towing agencies and the impound process. Not only was Gresham Towing by far the most expensive to date, none of the others ever "misplaced" my keys. Even giving them the benefit of the doubt concerning the rates they charged me, the inconvienence of having to wait over a half-hour for them to produce my keys was incredibly unprofessional in my opinion.
