[To assist us in bringing this matter to a close, you must give us a reason why you are rejecting the responseIf no reason is received your complaint will be closed Administratively Resolved] Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because: While the naming sequence may be missing several numbers in the series(which is strange), there is still the issue of not photographing the drivers side to the same standard as the passenger side receivedIt is clear there was an effort of detailed photos but they all stop short of showing the critical area, which after pulling out is a huge scratch, how could you miss that with the flash? The scratch is noticeable enough to want to detail prior to pulling the vehicle, to avoid this exact situationShowing the drivers side front tire, rear light and extreme cloof the drivers passenger panel does not detail an effort to show good faith was used to document prior to pullingThere is an unbalanced amount of passenger side photosThis is clearly an unethical attempt to deceive anyone reviewing the photos, by showing just enough photos but not the one that would absolve A -towing Regards, [redacted] ***

Complaint: ***
I am rejecting this response because: I do not accept that their personnel did not access my car and hide my paid permit in order to extort $from me A-Towing claims their personnel undergo background checks and act ethically By holding to this position, they are directly attacking my integrity, which as a career Air Force and Defense Department intelligence officer, has been the foundation of my ability to gain and maintain a top security clearance for over years, and verified by multiple periodic security background investigations dating back to I applied the same practices and procedures to securing and displaying my parking permit that I have used successfully for over years with security badges and facility passes While I recognize that this issue boils down to my word against theirs Their photographs (not provided to me) of my car without a permit proves nothing since they admit they had access to the interior of my car, and thus could have taken the photos after hiding the permit Given that there are over complaints of such actions by A-Towing on the Revdex.com and Yelp.com web sites, I believe there is ample precedent of their improper business proceduresRegards,

Regarding this claim; it was denied for the following reasons:
We are not required to check with front desk prior to towing any vehicle from the property in which this vehicle was towedSecondly, It is not possible for this type
of damage to occur while towing a vehicleIf the windshield is damaged and the owner is unaware, then we believe the vehicle may have been vandalized.
For this reason, we denied the claim.

Hello Mr***
13.2px;">We received your complaint and investigated it thoroughly At this time, A-Towing will not be accepting responsibility for the damages claimed.
We photograph each vehicle prior to tow to show the condition in which the vehicle was in before we touch it We use a program that sorts and files our photosWhile doing this, there is not set sequence as far as how the photos are numbered The program numbers photos as they are saved by the 6-drivers we have working a particular shift.
Our photographic evidence shows that the scratch was on your vehicle prior to our tow.
We wish you well, but at this time, we will not be covering repairs to your vehicle.
Thanks,
A-Towing

Good Morning,
Thanks for contacting A-Towing While we understand you feel that your vehicle was towed incorrectly; this property requires that you display a reserved parking pass in order to park in a reserved space Your vehicle did not display this pass and
resulted in being towed.
After speaking with the property's manager, we agreed to release your vehicle as a one time courtesy becsuse you may not have understood the rules
While towing the vehicle, we did not enter or come in contact with the windows or door jams of your vehicle Your behicle was parked in a way that it was easy to hook and tow away without gained access.
Your calls were not ignored, a manager spoke with you and advised you that you were calling their personal cell and that you would need to call the company's direct line during business hoursYou repeatedly called and text that managers personal number after hours with threats
Due to the simplicity of your concern, we have reached agreement with your property manager to purchase the plastic moldings and install them.
Please understand that we are not accepting fault and that this is solely being done to keep peace
If you have further questions, please contact A-Towing
Thanks,

Two vehicles was towed were towed on March 19, from [redacted] The reason for tow is that both vehicles displayed counterfeit permit decals made of photo copied paper and displayed the exact same numberIt was discovered that both vehicles belonged to [redacted][redacted] and her husband.
Counterfeiting permits on this property is a direct violation to the rules set by the Home Association of the propertyThe property issues vinyl adhesive decals to all residents of the property which allow parking throughout the communityThis is the sole and only way the parking lot is monitored for unauthorized vehicles.
The first towing offense occurred on August 5, This towing occurred due to the fact that [redacted][redacted]'s vehicle did not display a parking permit at all as required by the property's parking resolution.
In both situations, fees charged were within the City of [redacted]'s Towing Ordinance.
This information was explained at the time of pick upA-Towing has a manager available daily between the hours of am and pmPlease see attached photos of vehicles.
**& [redacted][redacted] are more than welcome to contact a manager at A-Towing shall they have any further questions regarding their towWe would be more than happy to assist them.

[To assist us in bringing this matter to a close, you must give us a reason why you are rejecting the response. If no reason is received your complaint will be closed Administratively Resolved]
 Complaint: [redacted]
I am rejecting this response, I'm sure to no surprise, for various reasons.  
Unless there's a new set of Arlington County codes not accessible by the public, 2 specific codes outlined were not followed.  
Code 14.3-5: 'a phone number that is answer by a person 24/7.'  This was not the case, with no alive human being available to answer a call, nor any automated system for a person to navigate through in order to find out where/when the car was towed.  A-1 Towing did not answer the phone at 2 numbers, the one listed on the parking lot sign (###-###-####) and another found through internet searching (###-###-####).  
And how convenient a company who's sole existence to be predatory towards people does not have a website to access any information?!  At the absolutely least, I would have obtained my vehicle Sunday evening (7/19) to avoid any further charge, is there video evidence that an attendant was even at the towing locations to answer any phone calls?  Unlikely.  Classic stuff right there, brilliant actually, all of this.  
Code 14.3-6: 'Immediately prior to a trespassing vehicle being removed or towed, notice of this action shall be given by the towing and recovery operator to the County Police.'  The police department stated my car was towed at 0150 on 7/18, they received a call at 0200 on 7/18.  This then consistutes a traffic infraction punishable by a fine of not more than $100.
Regards,
[redacted]

Hello, 
Thanks for contacting A-1 Towing. 
A-1 Towing is contracted by the [redacted] Apartments to enforce parking rules throughout the community.  There are signs at each entrance that have our number as well as Arlington County Police phone...

number. 
When either number is called, information as to if or where a vehicle has been towed to can be obtained.  The property also notifies its residents of whom their current towing company is at move in or if changes have been made. 
While on any property that hands out a permit for parking; the parking pass must be posted on the vehicle where it can be easily seen at all times.  Normally a towing company can only rely on a visible permit.  We have no access to confidential information located inside management office on properties. 
We send Courtesy emails to all properties to notify them of towing activity. There is no law that requires this.  We are however required to report each vehicle to the police prior to towing.  We practice this with every vehicle towed. 
A-1 Towing does not currently have a website  but are located in any phone directory such as yellow pages. 
Fees are charged according to Arlington county code. In this case, $135 for tow and $50 per day storage.  This vehicle had 2 days of storage. 
If any customer ask to inspect their vehicle, we have no problem letting them do so. 
At this time, A-1 Towing does not feel a refund is due.  The vehicle was parked in violation of the parking policy and was removed. 
If you would like to speak more about this, feel free to give us a call. 
Thanks,
A-1 Towing

Hello Mr. [redacted], 
 
13.2px;">At this time, we feel that a refund is not necessary. [redacted] gives residents permits for the sole purpose of displaying them in the vehicle at ALL TIMES WHILE PARKED ON THE PROPERTY. 
A-1 Towing does not have access to any of the records kept in a log book located in the management office.
There are signs at the entrances to the property that state "Permit Parking, Towing at Owner's Expense."
 
It is a serious allegation to state that we would enter your vehicle and relocate your permit with the sole purpose of towing it.  
 
All of our drivers undergo a background screening through the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice and are licences to operate in the state as Tow Operators.  Our drivers take their job seriously and have families to provide for.  There is no way the any of our drivers would risk supporting their family over your $185.00.  Its just not worth it. 
 
Attached are photos of your vehicle that show that there was not permit present. We even go the extra mile and photograph the front seat areas to prove we checked the floor board areas just in case the permit slipped off the dash.
 
At this time, we will not be issuing a refund. If you have any further questions, feel free to give a manager a call at ###-###-####. 
 
Thanks,
 
A-1 Towing

Thank you for contacting A-1 Towing.  This vehicle was not unlawfully towed. [redacted] Apartments require that vehicles parked in guest parking display a guest permit. Signs are posted throughout the visitor parking area.  If there is not a guest permit displayed; the vehicle is towed...

away. Unfortunately, we are unable to process a refund for the tow due to the fact that the vehicle was correctly towed for violating a parking rule on the property. 
It is the resident's responsibility to advised their guest of all rules while visiting the property. 
If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us at ###-###-####.
