A few months ago, we reported on a couple of owners in Florida who were able to get their car towed for $500 without an inspection.
The owner of the car, whose name is not being used to protect the identity of his son, said the tow company gave him a $5000 refund.
He told us it was a great deal and the company had been very helpful.
The problem is, this is a common trick that tow companies use.
In the case of the Florida tow company, the problem is that it doesn’t have to show up in court to get paid.
In many states, it can be hard to prove a tow company did not tow the vehicle to its location.
So what can you do if you get towed?
If you don’t have a good insurance policy, the best thing you can do is contact a local tow company and get a quote.
They’ll usually give you a better price than what you pay.
And don’t be afraid to call a tow truck if you think you might be towed.
But, if you’re a member of the public, you may have more options than just contacting a tow service.
A number of sites offer discounts on vehicle inspections.
For example, the Carfax.com site will offer $100 off vehicle inspections if you call ahead and pay in full before a tow.
There’s also a free inspection for your neighbors.
If that doesn’t work for you, you can also file a claim online.
Many states also offer free insurance and roadside assistance programs.
