I would just like to get some answers to a question that alot of towing companys in the Asheville NC area have,the question is how in the hell does AAA carolinas justify bringing an outfit out of Burlington nearly 300 miles away to run calls in this area,what is that,thats just wrong,you dont see companys from Asheville down there do you? The word on the street is that Adams is out to take over the towing industry in Ahseville,he also says he has all the motor clubs sewed up,all i can say is good luck,Danny's tried it last year,see where hes at,just remember,insurance,fuel and truck payments still come even though your running those high paying AAA calls also his price for a local tow is down right ridiculous,some crap about an $85.00 hook up fee and $3.00 a mile after 10,that is plain and simple highway robbery when the average call here is like $50 to $60,rethink it Adam and go back home to Burlington
Its not just Burlington, sweetie ! Its Asheville, Wilmington, Raleigh and The Outer Banks. AAA Carolinas has some kind of interest in Adams Towing!.... I am not sure exactly what's going on but if you ask any questions they get very defensive.

We have been dealing with Adams Towing in our area for four years now. AAA transported them here to help with our southern beaches(the Hatteras area)and instead they have ultimately given Adams towing the entire Outer Banks. We were a AAA contractor for 22 years and they terminated our contract without a reasonable explanation. Our average ETA time is 19 min. Adams is 59 min. I also have copies of over 350 letters written to AAA Carolinas one of them from our senator and all of our local police departments , asking for a valid reason for our termination. Not one letter ever received an response. We did not turn down any calls, we had a 97% rating with Sterling and most importantly the customers love us. And all they said is that it was a business decision. All we did was ask why they were receiving our normal call volume and why he was here when we didn't need the help! We already had two AAA backups in our area......I want some answers!

looks like Adams needs to get his ass back to burlington and let the local towing companys in asheville work as they were for the last 30 years with no help from a so called wrecker outfit called Adams towing

to whome it may concern,i was riding down i-240 in asheville and an adams towing service truck whooped over in fron of me and i noticed something that stuck out like a sore thumb,it was a weighted tag,when he is for hire and makeing money with that vehicle,he should have to have for hire tags just like the department of motor vehicles require everybody else to have or be faced with a fine if that vehicle is for hire,get the right tags adams

Does anyone know where Mr. Adams gets all of his money? He has bought 74 properties in Alamance county alone and countless other properties in North Carolina!
Yes I know where they get some of the money!From the employees that work for him. They always find one reason or another to hold employees last pay checks! They are rip off conartists that should be shut down! Wendy the "girlfriend" is the one running the company!! Doug should grow some balls and pay people what he owes them. He sure dont mind charging people but its time he pay up!!!!!!!!!!

I mean he is not called Mr. Burlington for nothing you know, he has had years to perfect screwing people, just look into how he treats his employees or better yet look real good at his employees.
Wendy is just in it for the easy ride!!! her ankles on her ears is the only reason she is there. She might as well come in the office with no shirt on... thats all she has going for her tits. lol but if she only knew!!!!!!!!!! KARMA IS A BITCH.. and doug and his sorry ass company will get whats coming to them!!

by the way i believe i will make you laugh when the highway patrol stops your ass in a for hire revenue producing ,money makeing vehicle,they will give you a ticket and tell you to buy the proper FOR HIRE tag,you must be living in the past long about 40 years ago,sounds like you need to get with it and read up on NC laws,and by the way adams,buy the right tags,you will thank me later

I think its only appropriate that we link these two Topix ..... Since AAA Carolinas is so close with Doug!

We should all contact the news rooms in North Carolina until something is done! They should not be able to get away with what there doing. Let me be clear I think AAA is a great enity but AAA of Carolinas is as crooked as a black snake.It would be different if Doug Adams actually had valid reason to be in the places he moved to, but he does not. AAA is taking food right out of the mouths of the the same companys that have helped them thrive thru the years. Adams does not even have a commercial bussiness front or impoundment lot in any of the places he has been relocated to, just rental homes in residential areas. No repair service , no central office location and Burlington plastered across his trucks. I can tell you it dosent bide well with customers to see an out of town truck pull up to there front door. And normally way over there promised ETA time.To address the whole payoff issue......... NORMALLY WHERE THERES SMOKE THERES FIRE!

LMAO you people have way too much time on your hands and/or have a stick up your ass....can we all say slander? if you don't like them, don't use them! But to seriously make up such stories is rediculous!! I guess some people just need the drama and this must be an easy target for a bunch of you rednecks!! Grow up, get a life and do something valuable with your time instead of attacking a member of this community!

Adam's Towing is not a member of our community! The company does not contribute to it nor does it pay taxes or have vehicles registered in our county. THATS WHAT THE PROBLEM IS!
