The Ongoing Saga of My Poor Car
So, as many of you know, my car was towed earlier this month, & after going to Ford, the damage is going to cost me about $140 out of pocket. (The front valance has to be replaced and special ordered since it’s a part for a brand new car.)
I’m at Ford getting the part replaced. Now that I have the final quote for the cost of repair, I called the tow company to see how to go about getting reimbursed for it. the first time I called, he told me to read the fine print at the bottom of the receipt and hung up on me.
The bottom of the receipt reads: “Not responsible for loss or damage to vehicle in case of fire, theft or any other damage beyond our control.”
My first though: Well, this sucks. My second thought: Hang on! Ripping the front plastic guard of my car from a front tow is not “beyond their control.” It’s carelessness!
So I called the tow company back & explained that, to which the tow company man got super rude and told me that it was my problem, I probably ran over a parking beam in the two weeks since it’s been towed, they weren’t paying, and if I called him back again he’d sue me for harassment.
Plan B: Done with the tow company. Currently contacting legal advice. Looks like if I want to see any money, I’m going to have to settle this in small claims court.
