best around

I honestly think the bad reviews are written by competitor towing companies. I have had nothing but good experiences using South Philly Towing. The drivers are pleasant, rates are fair (if not lower than other local places), and I have even had to call them in the middle of the night. My car was far from new. It would stall all the time. South Philly Towing really helped me out on more than one occasion. I have recommended them to friends and have never heard a complaint from them either.

Used them one time

Was surprised to see the reviews I did on here.
Here's my experience with SPT.
Was moving in Aug 09, and got a ""No parking"" permit for the two spots in front of my house to allow for a moving van. Paid for them at City Hall, put them up, and when I wake up the next morning, two cars are parked in those spots. Thankfully, one car moved, but the other one remained. Called the cops, they couldn't do anything, so I called the towing company. I asked them if they could tow the car, and they said they were unable as they could only tow cars if their company sign and contact info were visible, so the owner would know who to contact. I was so furious that this person hadn't moved and my van was coming, I pleaded for the tow guy to tow the car to the projects, but he would not. When a spot a few cars away opened up, he towed the car, so the driver would be able to find their car.
Was surprised to reviews about shady drivers, as this guy was very ethical and fair.

SCAM!!!!

They towed my car when I parked in front of my friends' garage. My friend wasn't there at the time but I put my friend on the phone to tell the tow guy it's ok for me to be there. He said once he got the car on his truck there's nothing he can do. I have to pay the fee right away or pay double at his office. The business looks shady. I think they're desperate for money and will tow anybody's car with any chance they get.

TOTAL RIPOFF!!!!!!!! BEWARE

I recently parked on a street where aprox. 150 cars were parked. There were no signs posted and I was parked legally. After leaving a Phillys game at 12:00 am with my eight year old son I found my car to be missing. After walking around for about 15 minutes I saw an old sign about halfway down the block that was blocked by a dissabled van. I called and they told me my car was towed. They said they were closed to call back tomorrow and hung up the phone. I live about 2 hours away and called my wife to pick me up. It was about 3am when my wife came and got back home around 5. The next morning I called and was told the fee was $210.00(cash only). I dont know how the city allows such a piece of crap company to do business on their behalf. Beware, this company preys on innocent drivers obeying the laws.

These guys are Gestapo crooks and thieves!

Last night these crooks towed vehicles from 95 & south galloway street. The owners were Eagles fans who had already paid $95 per ticket to go to a pre-season Eagles game! We were not parked illegally, but were told to call the police if we had a problem with the situation ( we caught them in the act )! People were willing to walk farther to avoid $20 parking. No businesses were blocked or interfered with in any way!
This should not happen! When will the city act against this criminal towing! It is theft & highway robbery!

Reasonably priced and always on time

Being someone who frequents the City of Philadelphia quite often, I must say that everyone has to understand that there is no such thing as free parking in Center City. This is not the game of Monopoly wher you get some prize by landing on that square. Instead, your car is rightfully towed and sent back to the tow yard for pick up. Let me be clear. This is yours and only your fault. Don't park where you are not allowed. If you car is towed, it is because you did something wrong, not the other way around. Besides helping fellow business owners out by ridding the lots of illegally parked cars, the also offer a variety of other different services. It was raining went I met this company by accident. I slid into a guard rail and blew out my front right tire. South Philly Towing pulled over and changed my front tire and also inspect the car to make sure it was safe to drive. My experience was great and if I have ever have any towing needs in the future, this will be the first company I call.

Best Towing Company arounD

I recently got my car towed after an accident by southphilly towing, and i cannot think of one thing bad to say about these guys! They were perfect gentelman and did everything i asked them to! I can not beleive these as*hole out of towners think so badly about this company! Maybe you should follow the rules and read the signs, there only doing there job! And they can have there business in whatever part of philadelphia they want, do you think that they are suposed to relocate to a nicer more expensive lot just to please yoUu! Just think , you got a tour of the beautiful side of philadelphia that you wouldnt get to see without them! So instead of writing lies and nasty reviews you should thank them, if it wasnt them it would have been the city towing your car eighter way, it was YOUR FAULT, maybe next time you wont be so careless! Anyway i sure thank them and i would recommend them to anyone, there terrific and helpful men!
p.s they handled my car just fine and recommened the best service to fix it and now im back on the streets in my mercedes c class and its just like new!

CROOKS! Tourists beware of any South Philly Towing signs...it's a set-up!

I wanted to take my family to the Italian Market today just to get out and get to know Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love. Before we arrived I checked out parking lots for this tourist area and decided to park on Christian Street. We parked in the wrong lot. The lot we needed was 1/2 block up and boy did we pay the price. We're ok with getting towed and paying a fine...even if it was a ticket it would have been acceptable. We were out for about an hour and came back to no auto. We called the number, the guy was rude. We told them we had two very young children with us and needed some assistance to get to his location. He offered none. We went back to a local business and called for a cab. The employee said that they have had so many complaints from out of state (tourists) people like us getting towed who had parked in that very same lot. After we got a cab, the driver found out where we wanted to go he said that if he had known he wouldn't have taken the job because that area is very high in crime. So with our two young children we drove to South Philly and we were so afraid I didn't even want to get out of the vehicle. To make it even more exciting, our van wasn't even there. No professional building, no professional employee to take your information and to help us. Ok..we made a mistake, don't make it worse by sending us into the worse neighborhood in Philadelphia. Once our van arrived we paid the $150.00 and drove off. The sad thing is that the family waiting before us really got ripped off, yes...they were tourists too. They had been towed just before us and their vehicle ended up behind the fence. Because of this, they were charged a storage rate of 25.00 plus tax. They paid a total $178.00 and didn't question it because they just wanted to get out of there. This is crazy Philadelphia! Do you want tourists or not?
