Someday they're probably gonna tow the wrong dealer's car loaded with "cargo" and WHAMMO-BLAMMO, there won't BE an Intown Motors anymore.

Laws need to be amended or re-written to prevent scum like them from operating.

And there are scum who park illegally even though there are laws (no amendments) that cover illegal parking. Some of these WHAMMO-BLAMMO soldiers do not use common sense. Take 'em out Intown!

I think it's terrible that someone assaulted an employee. That being said, I also think that the people that run Intown Motors are scum as well. I went to pick up my car there once (after they gave me the wrong information on what I needed to bring in)and they had a gun - sitting out on the COUNTER. Anyone could have grabbed it and robbed the "money drawer" (literally, just a drawer in a desk - full of cash). And the guy kept going on about how they made "a killing" the night before. The room was full of 20 fuming people, and he had a gun on the counter. I should have called the cops.

To the idiots who didn't read the signs and got their car towed.... you will now have time to learn to read when you sit in a cell. The Intown crew does a great job at keeping lots clear. That's why people hate them... I have never understood that.

i look forward to having you towed by intown if you park in my lot... i have 3 signs per space that say not to park there and still idiots do. then the same idiots want to scream and yell and demand their car back now, right now. whaaaaa, whaaa...the extra time it would take you to park where you can is a lot less of a hassel and alot less money than getting your car back.

When I got my car towed, I realized it was my own fault. I had forgotten street cleaning was starting up again for spring. Whatever. No huge deal. What upset me was how unprofessional they were. The York City Police Department shouldn't allow this to go on.

If Intown would stop stealing peoples cars then their employees would not be getting their ass whooped... Steal my car and you won't get beat up baby but you will get a 357 mag shoved up your ass....

Know what you're sayin'! Had my first encounter last week, EVER, with Intown Motors. Inadvertently locked my keys in auto. Called them, and shortly, HE arrived. Very efficient/cordial/polite and was on his way. Yea, I know, THEY are ALL robbers/thieves/cheats and especially good at breaking into vehicles. Then again, my demeanor was, "I need help" to open my vehicle, so I was very polite. The guy responded to MY behavior and could not have been anymore helpful. But I NEVER park illegally. Same as when a speeding ticket is issued, I do not blame the police. Ever watch the tv program on the 'impound lot' in Philly. Aholes are treated like aholes; so possibly you aholes should not park illegally, or whatever you have been doing to have your vehicle towed. Thanks INTOWN, and keep that gun on the counter!!!

What kind of candy machine was it? Did it have any candy in it or was it empty? What a lack of detail!

If idiots would learn how to read the NO PARKING signs they wouldn't get towed.

Isin't that some form of intimidation? It certainly seems threatening in any case.

Lets be reasonable people, it is York City who allow this scum to operate. We were towed just because an angry Yorker wanted us to be towed. These laws that favor scum like them are inconcievable during a time when unemployment is low in this area. York is a pit stop...and Intowne the pits.

There were no parking signs where we were and we had parked there for 3 years , When IN towne pulled up to tow, we were waiting for them. And gave them a warning and showed them our muscles ...and told them what we were going to do, that was the end of the story.......They never came back. They are greedy pigs..........
That was easy

Dont park where you're not supposed to. Park in my spot, In Town wouldn't tow you. I'd flatten all your tires. Private property is private. How bout I park my car up your ass. Would you have me towed? LOLOL Whaa whaaa whaaaa!! Go swim in the Codorus Creek.

if you were right intown would have removed the car that has been sitting in the 1st avail space next to my reserved parking since bike night...intown tows from my lot.

looks like you parked in lot that was marked w/ an intown sign...maybe it was mine. i have advised people for years that we tow and they just say "i'm going in for just a second". to bad...intown is faster than you. i get a kick out of watching the same people come back for their car more than an hour later.

i have said and continue to say...intown is not the problem. it's people such as yourself that feel entitled. getting mad at intown makes as much sense as getting upset at the grocery store when you get home and figure out your forgot to buy your eggs. darn store should have reminded you.
