Please do not use these clowns!!!! Please for your own good call anybody else. They gave me receipt for a quoted price of $65.00, then charged my debit card 178.20 Tried to contact them but the owner would not return my call. (coward).. Talked to my lawyer today. more

Sorry Excuse for a Company 4/1/2012

Called for a tow truck. What a joke. Dirty, nasty scum! THey damaged my car by towing an AWD like it was nothing. I then did research and the ""owner"" likes to play cop. He is not a cop, he is an auxilliary. He like to write people tickets and pretend. Hope the law gets you. I will be making a call to the attorney general. DO NOT USE THESE GUYS more

Kuffner Towing - my bad experiences (Olmsted Falls) 7/27/2011

My wife and I had a bad experience with Kuffner Towing on 7/18. She was caught in a flash flood and required a tow. After towing the car to our home and paying by check, the driver returned 10 minutes later and demanded another form of payment and threatened to impound my Jaguar. I called Kuffner's dispatcher who was exceptionally rude, swore at me, and called me a ""f***ing dickhead."" Over the last week, I have repeatedly called Kuffner to talk to the owner, but all of my attempts were thwarted by the minimum wage hirelings who answer the phones. Today my insurance company finally authorized repairs. The shop told me they would have Kuffner tow my car to their shop. I told them to use a different towing company. I also told the story to the general manager of the dealership who was outraged by Kuffner's treatment of my wife and I. I hope that they will drop Kuffner in favor of a towing vendor which has more respect for their customers/victims. I hope that you will consider my experience if you ever need a towing company to help you out in an emergency. more

worst towing experience 2/11/2011

my car was to be picked up at ten am. after many calls to and from kufner assuring me ""its on its way"" and ""he'll be there in fifteen minutes"", the tow truck finally arrived, two hours late. i was told i was gonna be charged by mileage. not sure how a less than ten mile tow wound up to be fifty dollars. way to not communicate within your own company on towing rates. its either a flat rate or by mileage is what i was told. never again. more

Fun Fact! Beyond Thunderdome was filmed here. 9/10/2010

The City of Lakewood clearly has some kind of corrupt deal with these goons. Is this really where the loving City of Lakewood wants to send their tax-paying citizens to pick up their vehicles after a towing? I understand that it was my fault for getting towed. So I accepted this and after 15 minutes of screaming into a pillow, arranged for a ride to the Lakewood Police dept. where I was informed that after paying THESE fat pig bastards, I would then have to ask my friend to drive me miles away through a war-torn, third-world section of Cleveland to Kufner Towing for a whole new set of fat pig bastards to pay. Usually when I am entering a place as post-apocalyptic and populated by mouth breathing inbreds as Kufner Towing I address anyone I meet with a genial tone and a watchful eye. I always expect to be dragged off into the back room to be killed in some horrible way with power tools while a leather bound gimp from Pulp Fiction giggles excitedly in the corner. So I watch my exits and try to develop an eye tic that makes me look ""crazy"". I can imagine that as bottom feeding scumbags that tow people's cars, Kufner Towing has to deal with irate ""customers"" taking it out on them every day. So I thought that my level headed approach might garner some mutual respect. I was wrong. They hated me with their every word. I thought they might enjoy taking all of my money for a service I didn't request and treat me with good ol' fashioned indifference. But instead they treated me like I raped their moms (and I'm sort of regretting that I didn't now). Now let's take a look at their reviews. I'm seeing a pattern here. People that gave them 1 star mention incredible rudeness, negligent handling of the vehicle, terrifying mongrel dogs (yeah, I'm pretty sure that animal has tasted human flesh before), and fear of Deliverance style violations. On the other hand though, the people that gave them 5 stars (other than the very amusing ALL CAPS troll) all attribute these very nice men with heroic acts of service, having nice doggies that ""let my 5 year old pet it"", and (this is my favorite) ""cool looking trucks"". Now amidst the spelling errors in these planted reviews is the strange coincidence that each reviewer is eager for us to know that, ""Gee, us customer types are just idiots that park illegally all the time with suspended licenses and screws in their tires which we are too cheap to have taken out."" Well, I have a question for Kufner Towing: Is this your opinion of the customers who are paying out their asses to keep food on your table? Maybe next time you could be more neutral with your fake reviews, it would be a little more believable. Oh, and of course, when I say ""the food on your table"", I'm referring to the Burger King that your family eats in the car on the way to the Monster Truck rally. The real reviewer wilgory said it best: ""It reminds me that college education is good"" (No offense to non-asshole blue collar workers) more

Wonderful Facility respectful and very nice dog named tyson 8/19/2009

THIS PLACE WAS SO COOL. THE DOG WAS EXTREMELY NICE AND THEY LET ME PLAY ON THEIR BASKETBALL HOOP. THE FACILITY WAS EXTREMELY NICE. THE DOG WAS NAMED TYSON AND HE WAS REALLY COOL. KUFNER TOWING EVEN LET ME TAKE A POO IN THE EMPLOYEE BATHROOM! THEY GAVE ME FREE PIGGY BACK RIDES AND AS MUCH SKITTLES AS ONE GUY COULD EAT. THEY LET ME ANSWER THE PHONES FOR A WHILE AND I HELPED THEM OUT. WE THEN WENT TO FLORIDA AND HUNG OUT. WE BUILT A CARDHOUSE THAT WAS SO BIG. WE PLAYED JENGA FOR 7 HOURS. IT WAS SO MUCH FUNN. WE THEN HAD A PARTY FOR ME. I WAS HOME BEFORE SUPPER AND MY FAMILY WAS EXTREMELY HAPPY. I EXTREMELY INSIST YOU VISIT KUFNER TOWING BEFORE YOU DIE. Pros: EVERYTHING Cons: NOTHING more

a harrowing experience 1/27/2009

I just called this place because my car was towed there due to a snow ban. I recieved a verbal lashing usually reserved for naughty school children in the 18th century; be prepared to guard your emotional loins if you ever plan to speak with someone from kufner towing for more than three seconds. I feel oddly depressed now, like someone just died. more

An Overall Horrible Experience 11/24/2008

If someone told me that when my car breaks down in Lakewood I would have to deal with mutant rejects from the planet of the apes while their mongrel dog tears something bloody, that looked like it once was a rabbit, to shreds outside their freezing cave of an ""office,"" I would've forgone the experience and called Baker Towing. Pros: Not far from Cleveland Cons: Everything else more

Awful, Unprofessional, Jerks 11/24/2008

Mud and water inside my car, adjustments to mirror and seats seem to have been made by a angry five-year-old. Radio station changed to country, and it smells like burnt plastic now. Pros: The car didn't explode. Cons: The car didn't explode. more

Better in the hands of a car jacker. 7/7/2008

I was the unfortunate victim of this specific towing service. Not because my new car (of 2 days) just got towed for parking on the street while the pavement of my condo bldg was being re done, but because after just 6 hours of having the car in their custody, one of the Hub caps was not there. Pros: 24 hour service Cons: lack of security regarding towed vehicles, as well as lack of responsibility for damage/loss related to vehicles. more

Good Service 5/4/2008

I called Kufner Towing for a tow, and I was quoted a flat rate price. Other Towing Companies quoted a hook up and per mileage fee. They showed up, towed my car, and I paid. No issues, no problems Pros: Great service, cool looking trucks, very safe storage lot. Cons: Don't be like me and drive with a suspended license more

Best customer service and towing around! 3/26/2008

I recently got my car impounded because I was stupid and parked in a tow away zone. I came out and my car was gone. I saw the impound sign and called in. I was greated very pleasantly over the phone. The guy on the phone gave me my fee and clearly stated cash only. I went to the ATM got the cash and went to get my car. Upon arriving there I was impressed by the facility and the state of the art towing equipment. The people who work there are funny and easy going. They actually made it a pleasant experience! Even their dog was pleasant allowing my 5yr old daughter to pet him. They then took me to my car. They have a huge locked fenced in storage area where my car was safely parked along with the other unfortunate cars that got impounded. Upon getting to my car my tire was flat (because I'm too cheap to get the screw taken out). They even put air in my tire for me! I hope I don't get impounded any time again soon, but I do know this, if I ever need a tow I will call these guys in a heart beat. Pros: Outstanding customer service and facility Cons: I hate spending money more

Best in the Business 3/13/2007

For an impound lot I found these guys to be very respectful. I originally thought my car had been stolen until I found out that I had been illegally parked. They were able to get my car out quickly and with out incident. A+++ Pros: For what they deal with they are a cut above the rest Cons: Impounds are expensive more

Stay far away from this junk shop / towing 3/1/2007

Wow! This place is like an experience from a horror movie. The whole place is covered in dirt and grim, like the employees who won't stop staring at my girlfriend. They scratched my car and when I complained they brought out a huge junkyard Dog who growled and barked while they stood in silence. I'd rather leave my car in their swamp like impound then return to this place. Very unprofessional and threatening over the phone when I asked for a refund because of the scratch the caused. Some horror stories are based on fact, like this one. Pros: It reminds me that college education is good Cons: These guys probably have criminal records more
