Has anyone else heard that Sweats wrecker is bribing police to get tows? Somethiing is going on because we had an accident and asked for one tow service and was told they werent available so they sent sweats and when i asked the other tow service they said they were available that they didn't receive the call. Also, I had friend that requested a different wrecker and when the wrecker arrived it was sweats. I feel like this needs to be investigated. The coruption in this county as well as city needs to stop.

Why didn't you call yourself the particular tow service you wanted (I am assuming you have a cell, which I know isn't wise)

Perhaps this will alert others to call the tow service of their choice should they need one in the same situation. If there IS some sort of 'set up' going on, then it's easily worked around: make sure to not let THEM decide for you.

Now, to answer to if there actually is a set up? No clue, but considering "around here" I wouldn't be surprised. Totally disgusted by CC antics isn't new to me, or MANY many others. Sigh.

I did decide i told them i wanted another service they came back and said they wasn't available. but when i contacted the service i requested they hadn't recieved a call from them to come tow it. I would have called myself but the police said they would call for me. This isnt the first time either. I ran out of gas and was waiting on a tow truck when a police officer came by and asked me did i want them to call sweats. same thing happened to a friend and a few others ive talked to there is definitely something going on here.

This has happened to me to and i have checked on this and i found out that its against the law for an officer to call a tow service, recommend a tow service. however they can have a certain wrecker service come IF the owner requests it. This needs to be investigated before this county or city gets sued AGAIN. Its our tax money that has to pay when we get sued. someone needs to call don dare if the county/city won't do anything about it.

Alright, what i dont understand about this is that when someone has an accident or breaks down they need a wrecker to come tow their vehicle, right? right! ok so why does it matter who comes and gets your vehicle it shouldnt matter to u if its Sweat's or Lyk Nu, or Bolton's or who ever it might be. As long as your vehicle gets taken care of thats all that u should worry about. at least thats how i see it. & as for the whole Sweat's bribing cops to get service calls, thats absolutely positively NOT TRUE! I know this for a fact because my father Red Sweat owns Sweat's wrecker service. My Dad is an honest and caring man! he runs his business the right way. He cares about his customers and their needs. and if he has came and towed your vehicle or had a worker tow your vehicle for you then im sure you've recieved nothing but good accomidations from him and his workers because i can assure you that my father would never screw anyone over in his business or brib someone for anything he has worked hard to get where he is at and to have what he has in his business and in life! So if you have a problem with getting a good towing service to help you, then your not right in the head because i think if you were picky about your towing services when you have an accident or break down then you never wanted the help in the first place. Now to end this i would like to say that i DID POST THIS WITH MY REAL NAME not some fake screen name i made up just so u people on here saying all these false things can see who i am and what i have to say. My father like i said before is an honest and caring man. He would NEVER do the things your saying he's done on here and on other forums that have been posted about his business. i think if you really wanted to know the truth then u would go ask him yourself. he will tell you he does his work and runs his business honestly! and he will also tell u he has worked hard to get where he is, he has no reason whatsoever to screw anyone over or brib anyone. so with that being said, if you want to know anything else about my father or his business then ask away because i can assure you i can answer any question you have. thanks!

I listen to scanner and the victims ask for particular towing service. They will say for example, cop will say owner request Lyk Nun or whomever. Some times these particular wrecker services are unavailable and the victims will request someone that is available. You are misinformed. GET YOU A SCANNER AND LISTEN TO IT YOU MAY LEARN THE TRUTH.

You are not correct about LYK-NU. They charge everyone the same no matter what. You can get a discount card from them if you have had a tow from them before. I have had one. The drivers of LYK-NU charge what is posted on the wall. If you check the THP they have to post there charges. I know that Sweats cheat people because they did it to my cuz. They kept her vehicle for so long, after she tried to pick up up several times, so they could charge 1200 storage per month. They just wanted to sell her vehicle or they new someone who wanted it. She didn't get it back it was a newer vehicle that was stolen and the police had a hold on it unitl the owner was found. After they notified her that they found it and she contacted and went to sweats they told her the hold was not released. They still were charging her storage. At last count her bill was around 3800 or something like that. RIDICOULUS!!! At least the other wrecker services in town will not charge storage on a hold case. I know because I called and ask them. I have also been told about the bribery. And if you listen to the scanner they sometimes just say call sweats or get sweats on the way. There is suppose to be a rotation list to go by. But money talks. And as you notice I use my real name. And at least the other wrecker services in town don't pay under the table and they pay payroll taxes. I am a personal friend of one of the drivers. Lets call Don Dare so the facts can come out. I think my cousin is going to sue sweats and the county over their vehicle. I hope she wins.

Yes I do care if I am in need of road service or a tow, I don't want to get cheated or molested. You would have to say good things about your own fathers company. What kind of daughter would you be if you didn't try and defend him. BUT just because you think that doesn't mean anyone else should. I have seen too much, and heard too much, to know that there is something fishy going on. You may want to believe he is honest but I don't. I don't believe the his brother Maynard is honest either. Something is going on between him and Robbie Goins also. I wonder if it has to do with all the money he gave Robbie during the election. I don't use my real name because I dont want to be harrased by the police and cause them not to get their 20 in cash from the handshake.

I HAVE listend to a scanner and U are misinformed alot of times they do say owner request whomever. and i understand that sometimes the people you request isnt available,. After you get out of the hospital and you go to the place you requested to tow your vehicle and its not there and they never got a call to go get it. whats up with that? happened to me and i specifically told them not to have sweats tow it but guess where it wound up. but you tell me when they say that the vehicle is abandoned that they can request sweats! Ive heard it happen ON THE SCANNER i dont think so. and also if the people are not from here how can they request it if they dont know who they are. i had a friend who some non english speaking person wrecked in there yard but yet they requested sweats. RIGHT!! but they can request someone that is available thats when the schedule that the county and city has comes into play there suppose to call next schedule not just call and say send seats. if you are a tax payer you should be concernd because our tax money is going to have to pay for the lawsuit that results from this!

I think most of you that listen to the scanner all day need to get a life if thats all you do. I myself listen to the scanner during the day because it is part of my job. I hear everything that goes on during the day. I have come to realize that its not only the cops but maybe the dispatchers at 911 also. When money is involved your conscience goes away. There are several wrecker services in town that are getting the shaft. If the scanner hogs want to listen correctly and keep down the owners request and not the next schedules you would hear what is going on. I wonder how much money is lost on a weekly average to the wrecker services that are getting the shaft? Maybe enought for a lawsuit if any of them are listening and keeping up with the scanner, and reading these post.

It does matter who has my vehicle and No i DID NOT recieve good accomidations from him and his workers this wasnt the first time this happened. They are very rude to customers and all they want to do is rip peolple off. Yeah he has got alot alright because he over charges you. When you go to the actual service you want for them to go get it and when that service calls them to tell them they are coming to get it he will tow it to that service so he can charge you or he will hold onto your vehicle up to the very last minute so he can charge a days storage yeah he sounds real honest doesnt he? If this had only happened to me i wouldn't say much But i know of ALOT of people he has done this and other dishonest things to to make a buck.

I have a scanner I turn it on and do my work. It is unfair and rude for you to say people with scanners need to get a life. Forget about the wrecker services. If I need a wrecker service I will ask for whom I want if noone is available I will ask for another one. Wrecker services are not getting the shaft. That is ridiculous.

I totally agree i know sweats dont do background checks if they did they wouldnt have had a registered sex offender working for the before. YES I KNOW hes not there now but he was wasn't he. All the wrecker services is getting screwed out of calls for the city and county all of them except for sweats of course.
