Complaint: My driver was delivering to a residential neighborhood in the Chicago area and became stuck in the mud and ice at the edge of the road. He simply needed to be pulled ahead 5 feet and he could continue. Police called a tow company at 7pm. At 2am Ohare Towing shows up with 2 wreckers and a pickup. One wrecker pulls the driver 5 feet and unhooks. The driver backs, under his own power, out of the neighborhood. At 330am, the driver is presented a bill for $1900. He refuses to pay this ridiculous price and follows the tow trucks to their yard, leaves his trailer as collateral and plans to speak with the manager/owner in the morning. In the morning he arrives and is presented a bill for $3094.20. The times on the bill were overstated severely(1230am to 630am), all three trucks were charged for even though one was called for and used and he was charged for 4 laborers to “spot”” him as he backed out(under his own power) even though the one tow truck driver could have easily handled it. After numerous attempts to reach a manager or owner or someone with reason that could look at the bill and make adjustments so it reflected the services provided

Phone: “”it looks reasonable to me””.Ohare towing service is a ripoff. It would have been cheaper to call a tow company from St. Louis and pay the mileage charge for 295 miles to Chicago. Forrest co. springs
