AAA - Left My 88 Year Old Father-Inlaw Stranded On The Side Of The Road
Roadside Assistance - Complaint
PORTLAND, MAINE -- You would think when you get the best plan from AAA you would get the best service!!! WRONG JUST SO WRONG. My father in-law's battery died on a busy road 30 min. from our house, we had add him for the reason of him driving to FL. etc. He calls for a tow and was told they couldn't tow a camper/van. When my husband and myself get to him I then called AAA to see what the problem is. This is where it gets so upsetting for us.
They never told us a van with a bed in it would not be covered for towing, that's fine we knew it was a dead battery so I asked for someone to come and test/change battery. Well then we are told we are not in the service area. So I said to the lady, if I was out in the middle of nowhere then you would come help? She says that is why we are not coming out now! We were on a main road just outside of town with semi's and traffic a consent flow and we are in the middle of nowhere she says... I did call the New England Headquarters when I got home 2 people said they should have come out, but when the supervisor called she said no and that the lady we talked first was right. Both ladies who said they could not help was very rude on top of everything else... BEWARE AAA IS NOT THERE WHEN YOU NEED THEM AS THEY SAY THEY ARE!!! I WILL BE ASKING FOR MY MONEY BACK WHICH IS OVER $100.00 for lack of info when we signed up for this.....
