These people have taken my car from the apartment that I live in twice. The first time the apartment was able to get it released. Today there wasn't going to be a manager in the office until Monday and the staff told me point blank that they would not authorize a release. These people are criminals pure and simple.

know your rights and take these punks to court. Joe Ayers is the punk driver who took my car, WHILE I WAS HELPING MY DAUGHTER WHOSE CAR HAD JUST BEEN BROKEN INTO! yes, APDs was right there with me and saw them do it...and didn't say a word...why, it was private property. what the lesson? they were made aware of the situation and STILL refused to turn around. i wonder, does that fall within protecting yourself or property from imminent danger...jus saying...or questioning, i mean. good luck j and j and joe....you're gonna need it...in court? and yes...most people will take your s and blow off steam here...not me...i will see you in court. what do you do when you get home at night, slap your mistress high five and say, "hey honey, i gots me 10 helpless folks tonite, i set a new company record". you guys are cowards by definition. take this bet....i will put up my car for a bet if joe ayers will meet me in the ring. if i lose, he gets my car. if i win, he doubles what i paid and gives it to charity (specifically, ASFPS). take the bet AND i won't take you to court. you have till friday to accept.

I work at a large West Campus community. Many of the posts I see here come from that area. Its important to realize that many of the parking spots in various communities are leased to the residents living there and that its the resident who calls the towing company, not the management. In fact, we always tell the resident that they should call the towing company if someone is parked in their spot because they have paid for it and if they park in a spot leased by someone else, they could be the ones that get towed. The bottom line is this, if you park in a spot that isn't a paid lot or metered in the West Campus area, you shouldn't cry about it if you get towed. Space for parking in the West Campus area is at a premium and it's not right to park in spot that someone else has paid for.

Its funny how basically almost everyone on here is dissing J&J & saying how they were "Illegally Towed"!! Truth is & everyone on here needs to admit it, is if you weren't parked in a parking spot where you could get towed, or if you dont read the signs, then you WILL get towed!! Thats why they have "CONTRACTS" with the places your being towed from because YOU were wrongfully parked & the businesses don't want wrongfully parked cars in there parking lots! Sooo until you learn to READ the towing signs, & park where your supposed to, then you can continue paying 193.30 to get your car out or maybe even more if you leave it on sight passed 24 hours.

Called me a mother f*cking c*nt...great business =/ – So I got ILLEGALLY towed by these scum bags. I was in a visitor's parking at a friends and they towed me. When I called to talk about it the guy was incredibly rude and when I pointed that out to him he lost it at started cussing me out that he has my car and could do and say whatever he wanted and I was a stupid bitch and a mother f*cking c*nt. Needless to say I filed a police report AND a complaint with the BBB and recorded some of his cursing rampage to discuss his termination on Monday morning. PLUS when I was picking up my car I say 5 tow trucks come in at the same time with 5 different cars. These guys are crooks! I agree if everyone just filed a police report, filed a complaint with the BBB and bitched about it enough we could get them in some deep sh*t AND have their towing permit revoked. I'm thinking FOX on your side? Anyone else in?

BTW, any good ratings they have on here are from the pricks that work for them.

Put a stop to J&J towing and thier illegal practices – I have been reading the various negative comments and stories of the outrageous and illigel towing practices employed by J&J towing. Enough is enough. They are allowed to continue these practices because eveyone is too busy to pursure them. " The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." I am also a victim of these jackals and plan to do something about it. I will be filing a claim against J&J in small claims court. I suggest that all of you that have had a problem with J&J either do the same or contact me so we can discuss yr case and I can use that in my pleadings. Let's use their own tactics against them. If eveyone that has been towed illegally by J&J were to sue them then the cost of defending themselves would soon become burdensome and perhaps cause them to rethink their tactics. If not, after enough suits have been filed we would have very good grounds to petition the city to recind their towing license. Either way has the desired final outcome. Please contact me if you are interested in participating.

Predatory Towing is illegal – Has anyone been towed by J&J while leaving their vehicle unattended for roughly 30 minutes. How can it be that a towing company can just happen to be in the right place at the right time? Apparently J&J can, and as far as I can tell it is because of Predatory Towing practices. I am in the process of filing a class action law suit against them. I have reached out to several social networks as well as the companies who have the parking lots in which they have been practicing this predatory activity. There is a very strong case against them and at this point it may in fact be very devastating to them. So the more that get on board with this the better the chances are to defeat the persons responsible for these blatant scams against the good citizens of Austin Texas. Please do not be afraid of them, contact the Texas Licensing Division and let them know how you have been violated. Here is their link: www.tdlr.state.tx.us

Criminals and hard core crooks – I am a physician and writing this despite knowing that I don't have time to fool with these crooks. I would rather pay outlandish money than go through the court procedures. I am going to complaint to state licensing/compliance division/real estate licensing and local enforcement though. That is the least I would have to do to satisfy my anger with the J&J.

There is no possible rating available for these bastards. They are indeed worse than child molestors, kidnappers and drug dealers. My son car was illegally towed and they did not even inform us for 17 days!. What I do not understand is that why the businesses' allow scums like J&J (Frank, Tim etc) to come in their property. They are obviously hard core criminals who are unprofessional and give them bad name!. Their scheme is that the victims would cough up the necessary money to get their car back. And it is not worth for the victims to go through hassle of court and compliants. To a degree, it is working for them. But there has to be way to stop these bad people. Now they are callous and arrogant. It is just like, they want to rob/rape you and ask for gratitude that you allowed them to do it. How could this happen in our lawful country. Is there any law enforced against these people?

This is ridiculous! and Aaron austin (you are not even real!)

Don't park in residential parking spots – There are several places where you can find free parking in west campus. You can find a free parking spot in at most 5 minutes. The last thing you should do is park in residential parking thinking that you are safe.

Complete croooks. – I understand that there's probably not a towing company out there that gets outstanding reviews or 5 stars, but these guys really take the cake on being complete dirt bags. At around 5:00am this morning I was taking my dog out to go to the bathroom when I saw my boyfriends car getting towed. When I approached the short white bald headed man who works for J & J Towing, asking him why he was doing it (I was under the impression my boyfriend was parked in a Visitors spot, confusion due to my apt's lack of communication) he continued to ask me what time it was. I was getting very frustrated because he wouldn't answer any of my questions, and once I informed him it was 5:00am the bastard said "Oh okay, good. I have a dentist appointment that I don't want to miss." At THAT point I was pretty livid, ran up back to my apartment to get my boyfriend but by the time we both came back down mister man on a mission was already gone. I called the actual company to complain about how sarcastic and rude the man was to me and the man who answered the phone could've given 3 craps less. He just said "OK" to me after I explained how employees talking to people like that is unacceptable. My boyfriend has school in the morning and all of his books and backpack were in his car, SO, at 6:00am we had to drive to this shady place on a dark road and pay this son of a bitch TWO HUNDRED dollars to get my boyfriends car back. TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS. These guys are crooks, they don't give a crap about you or any circumstance as long as they get their money. I'm super pissed Crossing Place off Riverside uses these guys to tow cars. I understand it's "your job" but then be a professional about it, not a dickwad.
