This company should be shut down. my son was visiting a friend at a apartment building and when he came outside his truck was tow away, the person who live at the apartment called the blum towing . explain to the unruly young man, she would come down there with her lease to prove she live at the apartment building and my son was there visiting her. he didn;t care. I went there to pay for the tow $205.00, my son was with me, the tow operator said to my son (young boy I can take these locks off this gate and give u what u need) , my son didnt say anything to this young man, I told my son go sit in the car, I then said to the tow operator why u call my son out for a fight, he said oh i not going to fight your son, im license to carry, I said, so what mean, U shoot my son he, said yes i shoot your son. I said my son did not say anything to U he just here to get his truck he have to drive it . when I told the tow operator IM calling the police he said go ahead Its your word over mind" I called the police. told police what this young man said. the police ask him for his name and Id he clam he didnt have any, the police waiting there with me, I didnt have any cash on me all I had was credit card, tow operator said they only take cash. He slam the door in the police officer faces. the police officer, said go to ATM we wait .I come back and paid in cash. I had to give this disrespectful rude stranger my driving license and cash through bars in the cold dark very high crime neighborhood. I glade the police was there, I called the next morning
to speak to the owner of the towing company , it sound like the same person on the phone, and it was same rude disrespectful person,I ask to speak to the owner, he said he is the day time manager, I wanted to make a complaint,about the towing operator last night, he threaten my son. It was the same very rude, man, He called me vulgar names and hung up on me.
This company is tragic. The operator hung up twice when we called to determine if they held our car. When we arrived the garage was closed forcing us to wait two hours for someone to return although they say "We never close." I urge everyone to pursue all legal means to revoke their license. Despicable service guaranteed.
Terrible!!!!!! Never Use!!!! – My car was running great when it was in my possession last but then I got towed by Lew Blum Towing Inc. I paid my fine of $235 which I accept and understand completely but what I don't understand is how I leave my car in a perfectly good condition and then get it back from Lew Blum Towing Inc and notice immediately that it is in a terrible condition. When they gave my car back to me (2003 Camry with low mileage) it sounded like a loud lawn mower!!! I told Lew Blum Towing Inc that something is wrong with my car and they refused to talk more to me about the issue (shouting) and then hung up the phone on me. I then took my car to a garage to get it fixed and they told me that my exhaust pipe and catalytic converter was broken and the garage was convinced the tower did this to my car as am I. The replacement of parts and service on my car cost me about $700!!!! I called Lew Blum Towing Inc informing them about the damage and they hung the phone up on me again after a couple words which gave me the impression this must happen a lot with them. They are rude, unprofessional and in my and my mechanic's opinion totally unqualified to tow anything. This experience has cost me about $1000, I would suggest to everyone to NEVER EVER use them to tow anything! I don't have proof but I also feel that when I gave them my keys at the "pick up" to bring my car out, I feel that someone was snooping around my car for something because things were moved around in the interior of my car and I keep a very tidy/clean vehicle. I was the only person at the facility waiting for a car and it took about 25 minutes for them to bring it out to me (what took so long? what were they doing?) I told a friend this and he told me that his friend was towed by Lew Blum Towing and they experienced the same thing and said things were missing from their car that were there before they got towed! So I don't trust them at all. I hope this review can help someone else in the future in not using Lew Blum Towing Inc. Lew Blum Towing Inc. is the worst company I ever came across.
no parking – lets get the record straight we at Lew Blum Towing co inc
we don't own the properties we Tow from. property owners call us to Tow away vehicles that block or park on private property.so if anyone can not read 36x36 or 18x 18 inch sign they should not be driven.plus the fee it self should deter you from blocking a drive way or parking on private property.so to all of you who have been towed and to those who we have not TOWED READ THE SIGNS they are big enough. blame your self..,.
