Parise's Automotive & Towing
112 W Main St, Batavia, NY 14020
This place is the local shady towing company that has a deal with the city to be the local ambulance-chasers; They will tow your vehicle to their place if you have an accident and take advantage of you by refusing to take AAA for the towing even if you did have AAA at the time of the tow (and they DO accept AAA normally, so there is no reason for this, just to make a buck on someone in a bad situation because AAA pays them less than the 150 dollars they try to whack you for). Do note they will do this even if you are conscious after the accident and try to request otherwise (like to use AAA or tow it to your house). I broke my leg in a collision with an unoccupied vehicle, was still conscious afterwards, and they pulled this business on me. Bottomline is, beware! Even if you have AAA, if you have any choice, don't give your business to these people that try to take advantage of people that are already in a bad situation. There are plenty of other towing places in Batavia you can use for towing, so go with any of these first. And first and foremost, DON`T let them get away with this on you! P.S. A tip that they won't tell you -- if you DO end up in their trap, even if these scamsters won't take AAA and want to make a buck off of you, you can recoup some of your losses by calling AAA and getting a tow reimbursement form if you get a police report and dated itemized receipt, AAA will reimburse you directly (all assuming you have AAA). I did get a portion of my money back but I want to warn as many others of their unethical business practices before they get you too. I found this out by calling my AAA agent and asking if there was anything they could do for me.
