Tonight i visted a friend who lives at university commons (off 94 and Huron) and during my short visit there the security guard tried to have my car towed! They called Gopher Towing, luckily i came out while he was still lifting the rear wheels into their towing devise. to get him to "drop" my car down i had to pay them a hundred dollars!!!! (i decided to use my credit card so that i can protest payment and file a dispute though wellsfargo, reason fallows) This isn't even what makes me angry, i understand that they my require parking permits there and i may have been overstepping for parking there for maybe a half hour. WHAT PISSES ME OFF IS THAT WHILE LIFTING MY CAR THE TOW TRUCK CRACKED MY UNDERSKIRT!!!!!! i have pictures of the of the "stinger" 's barbs / arms resting on possibly my oil pan and plastic under my car. it is now loose and or cracked! :eek4: i was recently under my car, and know that it was not loose, the plastic skirt or what ever holds it is now cracked as a result from his actions. I took pictures of the tow trucks arms resting on it as well as it being loose, also i took down the trucks license plate, truck number and the the drivers name. In addition to cracking this plastic piece while he was lifting my rear wheels he was using a poll to jack the rear up into the air and onto the ski's or w/e. While he was doing so you could see it twisting the wheel! there was plenty of torque being exerted on it, while he was doing this my car was IN GEAR with the parking break on! (putting tons of pressure on the whole drive train i assume) In addition to wondering what possible damage could have been caused to the car while he was torquing on one of the wheels while it was in gear, what can i do to fix it or prove that it was them that caused it? The security guard claimed that i was improperly parked without a permit. there are posted signs about them using a towing company but no information about needing permits. However in the area where the security guard told me guest parking was allowed there was no signs saying so, or what provisions have been made about the parking lot and their grounds for towing. (I'm going to have a talk with them in the morning about that also) In the morning i plan on calling my insurance company, a auto repair shop to document damages and possibly a lawyer about further action for fixing and getting payment for all damages. From how i see it this is damaged caused by a moving vehicle, in addition to charging me for providing no services! ITS WRONG. Any opinion's / prior experiences with damage caused by tow trucks / avenues i can pursue them from would be greatly appreciated. Also if any one has / knows of a good shop near here where they can take a look and document damages at would be great, i'm not very familiar with shops near the U. thanks you!
