I was serviced by Bostonian Towing through AAA; I was picked up in Allston and my car towed to my garage in Jamaica Plain. AAA had told me that I would pay an additional $9.00 as my garage's location was three miles out of the zone they covered without additional cost.
The driver and owner, Mike, took the longest possible route to my neighborhood -- through MASS Pike and 93 -- which added an additional six miles or $21.00 to the cost. When I asked why he was not going through the city, he said there were roads prohibited to trucks and so this was the best route. I also asked him about getting a receipt for the money and he said there wasn't one.
When I returned to Allston the following day, I noticed no signs prohibiting trucks. I called AAA and they agreed that Mike's route was far in excess of what was necessary and, true to their reputation as being service-oriented, refunded me $20.00.
Didn't know that in 2012 there were still men who think they can get away with scamming women...this chick got herself informed and is now the wiser.
Don't use this scammer!
