Town hires towing firm despite worker's history

There are 18 comments on the The Sun story from Jun 24, 2007, titled Town hires towing firm despite worker's history. In it, The Sun reports that:

“Christopher's Towing meets all the requirements of the bid conditions.”

Go ahead. Town officials are banking on it. With an average of 750 vehicles towed in Chelmsford every year, Town Manager Paul Cohen urged selectmen last month to consider a revenue-enhancing system -- one tow ... via The Sun

Has anyone seen that poor woman at the last couple of selectmen meetings who had her car unwillingly towed by Christophers and ended up losing it?

Are there any other horror stories out there? I also heard that he trolls the streets of Lowell towing cars from parking lots when he's not even called.
good job

I saw those meetings and if you watched them she was the one who requested there service and it had nothing to do with the town of the police contract and from what they said her car was totaled in the crash my father allways told me there are 2 sides to every story

If your chains were lying out in the street; they were fair game. They could have been grabbed by anyone. I had a small oriental rug fall out the back of my truck once, when moving. I stopped as soon as I saw it happen; but not before someone driving by stopped first. I lost the rug and I wouldn't call it theft. I would call it a misfortune.

If I saw a chain in the road I would stop and grab it. Anything of any value lying in the road unattended is fair game; those are the rules.....

the state allows a max of 90.00 per tow; that includes 1 hour of wrecker while working. If the town of Chelmsford is taking $40.00 per tow, where is this thief making up his 90.00 dollars plus! Lets see; he always goes to every tow with 2 trucks, charges crazy amounts of money for, nothing but air. And if your body shop or garage wants to get your car, he wont let you on his property to recover the car unless a proof of insurance is provided. Who pays? customers and insurance companies. The town of Chelmsford is guilty of allowing this company to commit theft,

Hey Jimbo what a man you are making those comments and hiding behind a false name, since Christophers does business with most Lowell Tow Co. how come none of the owners said anything about "missing chains" could it be your making this up because you did not get the contract. It's already been proven that Chris had a competng
co. send people to the selectmans meeting and file false complaints.

In fact Christopher's is the worst, all the positive comments r from him and his limited family, he goes out of his way to get vehicles, HENCH he has no contract with the city of Lowell AT ALL, he goes on other tow companies property takes pics to try and discredit them, he has been told by the TOWN OF CHEMSFORD, NOT to have female customers ride in his trucks alone due to his history of RAPE, this is a fact, there is not one body shop, mech shop and dealer that enjoys doing business with this band of theifs stay away FAR AWAY OF THIS COMPANY, 1st hand experience

Christopher is the WORST. When I had to deal with him he SCREAMED at me every time I would call with a question. He made me feel very uncomfortable and even called and threatened me. I had to have his number blocked from calling me, as he was calling me at work threatening me. Not to mention, him and the rest of his drivers tail gait me (and others) out on the road with their little flashing lights going; do they really think I'm going to pull over for a tow truck driver to get by? HA. Dangerous.
