I left an interior light on in my car, which drained the battery just barely to the point of not turning over. I called AAA, AAA sent me Armada. Upon arrival, the tech immediately asked me about the age of my battery (which I've had no issues with when I'm not doing stupid things like leaving lights on overnight), and decided that he needed to "run a diagnostic" in order to tell me if my battery was "safe to jump", or if I would need to buy a new battery. This already didn't feel right to me, I've had vehicles jumped plenty of times in the past, and I've never gotten that kind of... it felt almost like a threat. I went inside while he was running the diagnostic, and told my fiancee that something felt off, and that they probably had a battery in their truck to try to sell me. And sure enough, their "test" came back as my battery needing to be replaced! Fancy that! And hey, they do remote installs and just happen to have one with them! The guy seemed genuinely surprised that I turned him down- I can't imagine how many people they actually get to buy from them on the spot. In the end, he thankfully did jump my car without requiring me to buy a battery, and I'm grateful for that at least. But the whole scammy sales push left me with a very bad taste in my mouth, and I wouldn't go to them for help again if given the choice.

I left my car at CVS overnight and when I went to get it the next day, I see that my car was gone. I GOT TOWED (I guess I did not see the sign posted in the parking lot). I called the towing service listed on the sign. Let me let everyone know that this business has Grade A employees and some of the friendliest people I have come across (most of us have experienced towing services that simply do not care). I was instructed on what I would need to retrieve my car and all my questions were answered promptly. When I arrived, I saw my car was in a well secured location. I talked with Eric, who quickly got everything cleared for me in no time. He told me they took care of my car and after inspecting it, there wasn't even a fingerprint on it. We spent more time chatting about cars then it took to process all my paperwork. In the past, I have come across towing services that charge these ridiculous fees. All Affordable Towing doesn't gouge your eyes out. The fees were more than half of what most places charge. If you ever get towed away, you better hope it's by this company! If you ever need a tow service, call this company without hesitation. They treat their customers like a friend! My Saturday morning was better than expected!! Support this local and independently owned company. They will treat your vehicle as if it was their own. Thanks again. -Rick
As a fellow business man, I can respect the work of Allstar Towing. They not only understood the gravity and needs of the situation, but they treated our dilemma with nothing but respect and sincerity. Empathy is a main priority of this company, and it rivals any I have seen in the twenty year business career I have endured. Exceeding the standards of a typical towing company, Allstar went above and beyond by assisting in the clarification of communication with my insurance provider to ensure my complete reimbursment. I would sincerely like to extend grattitude to Allstar for provding me with above par serivice and understanding. My condolensces to Allstar! - Jerry Gonzalez M.D.
