Citizens allege towing companies are participating in predatory towing methods.
“They just lay and wait and ready to pounce on somebody to make a mistake,” said Tom Bartholomy, president of the BBB in the Charlotte area.
In a recent incident, a Charlotte citizen left his car to get a drink from a Starbucks.
“I wasn’t even in there for five minutes,” said Alan Vanderschouw, the citizen in question. United Towing, a local tow company, affixed a boot to his car during his visit.
The Charlotte BBB received 65 complaints about towing throughout 2017.
