My son did a favor for a friend [recently] by offering a ride from an apartment complex in north Asheville called the Grove. When leaving, he discovered his car had been towed by All-Safe Towing from the half-empty parking lot to the tune of $150, which had to be paid in cash only. This is a substantial fee for anyone, but especially for a student who works to support himself.
While making a complaint to the manager of the Grove the day after towing, I discovered that the Grove receives a kickback from All-Safe Towing for each vehicle towed off their property. What an incentive to have a ridiculous towing policy! This apartment complex serves off-campus students who do not yet realize the extent to which they are being taken advantage by this towing racket. I want to spread the word to them and other parents.
