Towing companies need to be strictly regulated and set written policies in place. If enough people took these thieves to court they could bankrupt them with legal costs. There are guerrilla tactics you can use against towing companies but I can't mention them here. Lets just say they would make these thieves lives extremely miserable. The best thing you can do is take pictures and sue the companies. The more lawsuits the quicker the bad ones can be put out of business. By the way you don't need an attorney to file a lawsuit but the towing companies will have to hire lawyers to defend themselves at great expense. Hit them in their wallets and they will stop these sleazy practices.

look plain and simple if you can't read the signs that say private parking illeagally parked cars will be towed away at owners expense then your ass should be towed away at owners expense come on people it's simple to read a sign. and for those who think they are special privlaged important etc etc if you were that special important etc then you would have a private spot and if you did and someone parked in it you would be calling the towman in 10 seconds flat sorry gotta go someone else can't read a sign time to got hooked i guess

This is just another reason Philly is in the crapper. In addition to illegal towing Philly has the PPA, the housing authority and its director who can't keep it in his pants at work, a totally incompetent school administrator, a bargain basement city council, a corrupt L&I, drug dealing cops--need I go on? Judging by the comments of the towers these people must be real scum and bottom feeders.

Many companies, manton included use spotters. these are usually meth or crackheads or ex cons that are paid a commission on every car they report. When I see a spotter I have developed a technique sure to make their life miserable. I simply call the cops and tell them there is a shady looking character using drugs, smoking pot or taking pictures of kids while fondling themselves. Works wonders! Be sure to get the plate number if they're parked and if possible drop part of a joint beside the car. Once the spotter had old warrants and was hauled away in handcuffs! Made my whole day. Most predatory towing companies use spotters and they are easy to spot.I do these things EVERY TIME I see a spotter and I strongly encourage other to do the same.

All you sorry a$$ tow truck drivers/operators can go to hell... All I got to say is yous fcked with the wrong fella. Everyday I live on this planet, I will issue a complaint with the PPD & w/ L&I along with law suits. We will see who gets the last laugh.....(will be me!) By the time I'm done.. Your "Tow" company will be either shut down or out of business!
Just remember... You never know the person you fck with or even piss off and who they know!
I really feel bad... Nah, I don't. But what your a$$.
What goes around, comes around!
Ba-bye!
