Billy Marshall found his truck towed within minutes while he made his regular 6:15 a.m. stop at the fast food joint. Ace Towing hauled away the truck and charged Marshall $125 to get it back.
Sneeden's is also the owner of the Kmart shopping center at Western Boulevard and Blue Ridge Road in Raleigh. Almost 400 cars have been towed this year from that location.
Raleigh authorities are also looking into the rate charged by Ace Towing. By law, tow companies can only charge $100 if a car is retrieved the same day it was towed. Marshall and others were charged $125.
Customers of a Raleigh McDonald's are getting caught in the middle of a dispute between the restaurant, on Capital Boulevard near Triangle Town Center, and the property owner, and it has proven costly.
It smacks of something "Brothers" might do. You know the kind of "Brothers" I speak of, right?
First thing I would look into is whether there is any relationship at all between the owners of the tow company and the owners of either of those properties. Always follow the money trail.
Secondly, as a consumer, you can bet I would never use either of those places and I would make sure that everyone I knew would not, either. If those companies want to kill their businesses, they're doing a darn good job of it.
