So Bob's Towing is on suspension from all of their CHP contracts. I wonder if West Covina and the Sheriff's will do the same. I have heard that West Covina Police has been citing Bob's trucks for various equipment violations. I told you they are the company to watch in La Puente. Why would Solis and Argudo back a company with so many problems and turn their backs on a quality company like Haddick's ? Wait...who's hands are in Bob's pockets? Is that Solis and Argudo? Could explain why these two politicians are pushing so hard for a company that the Sheriff's Department says isn't needed.

I hear Royal Coaches is also going under investigation with all their political payoffs in the cities they operate in. The fact is AAA insurance will not let them be an official towing company for them with all their criminal violations of peoples rights and stealing property from the towed cars. Hey Salazar boys pucker up all those BP council election contributions just went down the toilet again your going to lose your franchise very soon. I guess you haven't heard if Monica wins she has vowed to go Sheriffs. and that means no more franchise for BP Haddicks will be towing and your finished. Well either way your company is done in BP.

Oh once they find out BOBS is BS. That's what you meant right? Famous for being crooks and shady. Keep doing what you do best... Stealing from your customers, padding pockets, and doing "business" the way you do... Shitty.

Today it's the CHP, tomorrow it will be the sheriffs, then AAA. Do your self a all of us a favor and hop on your carpets and fly back to the middle east where you came from !

Ok Here is the skinny. A electronic devise, with G P S software was reported missing from an impounded vehicle at Bobs Tow. It was traced right to the home of the owner of Bobs tow and recovered.

My question is why the CHP didn't suspend Royal Coaches when a cell phone went missing from a theft recovery that was impounded by Royal Coaches. The cell phone was purchased from an Royal Coaches yard sale where 50 other cell phones were on sale.

3/15/2009 Smartass Bob's installed the wrong car battery on our almost-abandoned '95 Camry.'Nuff said.
AAA seriously, I mean, seriously needs to rethink having Bob's Towing as their road-side service provider. Like, seriously.

I am a college graduate from a 4-year university.so don't underestimate my capabilty. i was born in a tow truck and

4/26/2010 They have THE WORST service EVER!!!

My mom was parked in a parking lot and one of the drivers of their service truck just swung open their door and hit my mom's passenger side mirror. They DID NOT take responsibility and the driver, Cue, was trying to block my mom from getting his license plate. The passenger of his car, Robert, "tried" making it sound good that they would help us and gave my mom their card to call for this problem saying that they would talk to their manger about it. WHAT A LIE!

They NEVER returned her call and EVERY TIME I called or my mom called, they said that the manager wasn't there. They just didn't want to take the responsibility of hitting someone else's car. They EVEN HUNG up on our insurance agent multiple times. Robert probably AKA Bob is the manager. They are lying and this SHOWS THAT THEIR MORALE AND COMPANY POLICIES ARE HORRIBLE!

I can't believe that AAA does business with them, totally complaining about that to AAA.

I AGREE with Rock, they should do us ALL A FAVOR AND SHUT DOWN!

9/17/2010 These people are crooks. They are also a predatory towing company - so watch out. We had our service car parked in a shopping center while helping a customer (in the shopping center) and Bob's towing came to tow the car away! They broke the driver's side window when they couldn't get the car on the truck. Fortunately we saw them break the window and came running out. They would not tell us their names (said they were called "Bob Dylan") but that changed quickly once we called the cops on them. The police arrived and helped us out - Bob's towing agreed to pay the damage for the broken window . Then they refused to pay. We finally got a check from them - and they deliberately wrote the wrong name on the check and refused to re-do it! After (literally) 50 calls to them (I tied up their phone lines the whole day so that they would stop hanging up on me), we FINALLY got a check. BEWARE. These people are CRIMINALS. We reported them to AAA who wouldn't so anything about it since the incident did not happen because we called AAA. Hmmmm.
