Who Says Crime Doesn't Pay? Highway Robbery in Houston

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, May 23, 2013

Just yesterday we bought a customer's wrecked Volvo in Housto. He had no collision coverage and his vehicle was towed from the scene via police dispatch. We consulted with the customer and agreed upon a purchase price for his wrecked car in minutes and started working on the release of the vehicle. Storage & tow yards in Houston are known for their predatory business practices with consumers, but what we experienced was outrageous!

The owner of the vehicle went down to the shop to pay the charges and get the vehicle released. After signing the proper forms, he was told that he had to pay several hundred dollars in tow & storage charges and once he did so, he would have one hour to remove the vehicle from the property?

He asked what it would cost if he could have until noon the next day and he was told he would have to pay $150 more?

Storage yards in Houston have been given the right to gouge consumers, it seems ,as these rates & practices are sanctioned by the local jurisdiction.

While Houston is "the extreme" and one of the worst places in the country to wreck your vehicle, storage yards have been taking advantage of consumers, banks and insurance companies for years. They tow your vehicle and hold it hostage for cash payment and use predatory business tactics to get more money by refusing to release your vehicle. They do everything they can to let the storage bill mount and then demand payment. Many unfortunate consumers have no choice but to abandon the vehicle to the storage yard in exchange for relief from these charges. Most of the time, the vehicle is worth SIGNIFICANTLY more than the storage bill, or the storage yard is charging more than the legal daily limit. We have seen fabricated charges, exorbitant administrative fees, documentation fees, etc. Whatever it takes to steal your wrecked or damaged vehicle and take it to the bank!
