AAA Charged $480 On Towing
STATEN ISLAND, NEW YORK -- I was involved in car trouble on May 28 2013. I called AAA for the towing service. It was after 6 pm; the auto body shop was closed so the towing company took my car to their yard and delivered the next morning to the Auto shop which was approx. 15 miles (together distance from the accident scene to the towing overnight then to the Body shop). The towing company charged $480 to my Auto Insurance. I called AAA to try to verify why the fee has to come out of my pocket (which would be paid by my insurance). Don't they understand that there's bills to be paid?
I'm not here to back talk AAA in any way, but sometimes enough is enough, and the services can be shady at times.
So I cancelled them and moved to another emergency roadside service that not only provides 24/7 assistance, but it's free (Free towing, tire replacement, battery, lockSmith, just to name some of many), and I'm also saving money on car maintenance for just $20/month.
So now I'm saving money, and I'm covered as well as my friends and family (they can still reap the benefits as long as I'm with them). That's basically my overall experience.
