I SPENT YEARS AT BUDGET>WORST OWNER EVER. 5/26/2011

You need to be aware that I KNOW most of these positive reviews are fake and written by current and former employees. You have been warned!!!!! If they damage your vehicle, Roy will avoid you hoping you will just go away. Hire a lawyer. And to the poor person whose pictures were not returned, I am deeply sorry. He will not let any personal items go without payment first, including pictures. You don't pay, he junks or sells your car and throws away ALL pictures. This is simply the most pathetic excuse for a human being I have ever or will ever see. He is the skid mark in satans underwear. more

Hit my car-could car less. 2/18/2011

The driver Mike Schultz backed the flat bed trailer right into my trunk lid causing a nice huge scratch and dent. He was ""worried he was going to hit his lights on his truck on the tree"" and obviously did not care about hitting my car. When loading the car he didn't bother to adjust the angle of the flatbed so the whole front end of my car dragged on the driveway as he loaded it onto the flat bed. The same thing happened as he unloaded, the front bumper hit the asphalt causing a nice crack in the underside. He continued to drag the front end on the asphalt for a good foot again due to lack of adjustment to the flat bed. I have called three times since and no one is willing or able to help me, I am just fed a bunch of lies every time I call. The owner, Roy Carlson, is no where to be found and no one can tell me when he will be in. more

Thanks Budget 11/8/2010

Why is it that you only see reviews from the people who feel cheated by companies. My experience with Budget was nothing but good. I was sent a professional curtious driver who seemd to actually care about my problem. And as far as cash only goes I paied by credit card with no problem of course I had done nothing to get my car impounded and I dont care who you are I have been impounded for illegal parking before too and was required to pay cash to get my car back so to you I say dont get impounded and you won't need to pay cash. And I really hope people are smart enough to take what they read with a grain of salt because alot of this stuff sounds like whiners that didn't get their own way to me!! more

thank you budget 9/29/2010

yesterday i was brike down in st paul i googled towing chose budget and they were awesome. it took them about 15 min to reach me and the driver was clean friendly and good at his job. Thanks budget towing you guys are the best more

Arrogant driver would have purposely hit my car 1/25/2010

This morning a driver from Budget Towing almost hit my car as we were sitting at a red arrow in a left turn lane. Apparently this individual didn't care that he was blocking traffic by sitting up on the median and also didn't care if he rammed cars when he decided to start moving (all while the SUV he was picking up was still in motion on the flatbed). Our honking, yelling, and pounding on the passenger door of his truck didn't make a difference; he was much too important to wait for an opening in the flow of traffic and just decided to create his own by pushing people out of the way. After reading the other reviews on Citysearch, I would say that it seems there's a ""trickle-down"" effect within this company.... more

Rude and Rip OFF 11/14/2009

Why am I not surprised there are sooo many poor reviews? LOL. This is quite satisfying. That explains their empty lot. These people are so damn effen RUDE and such RIP OFFS!!!! My truck was towed 7.84 miles (yes, seven!!) and was towed at 6pm yesterday, I picked it up at 1:20pm today and they charged me $685, claiming they had to get a ""special"" driver and a ""special"" truck. BS!! Even the gal who worked there in the morning said that she did not understand why it was so damn expensive. But the red neck, JASON, in the evening had NO explaination or literature to show why it was so damn expensive. All he could say was because it needed ""special attention"". Of course, an empty lot with barely any cars in there would need to charge MORE. I am going to pray every day that this pathetic piece of $hit business shuts down. Thank goodness I never used their service for my business in the past and will NEVER refer anyone to them.? Pros: Absolutely NONE. Wait, the gal in the morning was nice. Cons: EVERYTHING! more

HORRIBLE 11/6/2009

My grandmother passes away while we were borrowing her vehicle, it ended up getting towed away to budget towing. Since she has a loan through GMAC they were the only ones who could pick it up, instead they decided to leave the vehicle with budget towing and let them sell it. When the vehicle was towed away it contained a bunch of my personal belongings included the only picture I have of my grandma, and my father who passed away when I was young. The owner of Budget Towing refuses to allow me or my mother to get into the vehicle to get these belongings, even though they get to keep the only real possession my grandmother ever had. The owner can sell this vehicle for a pretty decent amount of money, and there is nothing in the car that will be of real value to anyone but me and my family. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!!!! more

Terrible 5/6/2008

This company is absolutely awful. There rates are ridiculous, there staff is incompetent, and the fact that they only take cash is absurd. I hope this business is shut down. Pros: non Cons: everything more

YAY Budget Towing!!! 4/21/2008

I would so totally recommend Budget Towing. Their service is unbelieveably amazing and the driver who took care of me was crazy cute and hot. The phone answerer sounded tasty too... Mmmm. I think it's WAY important to have good looking guys working for that company because it gets your mind off the $300 you have to pay and because when you are riding with them to where your car needs to go, it's like 15 minutes of heaven. I would have asked him for his number, but I think he was married. The flirting and watching him bounce up and down in his seat going down the road was good enough. It definitely left me with a good taste in my mouth ;) They are the most incredible ""Professionals"" out there. I wish they offered other services a long with towing. I would even pay just to ride around for an hour and see them in action. It doesn't matter what they charge, these group of hotties have my buisness for life. I would never go with another towing company after my experience. Go with Budget Towing for the ultimate towing fantasy/experience of a lifetime. I promise, you'll be satisfied to no end. Pros: REALLY cute and educated guys, fun and exciting. Cons: No cons. It was the perfect experience. more

worst possible rates, cash only (which seems a little shady) 3/4/2008

My vehical was towed from a parking lot near the myth. Budget tow charged an unspeakable amount of money for my truck to be returned to me. $361.00 for a one hour storage fee. This company is absolutly horrible. They also do NOT accept Credit Cards or personal checks which is SOOO SHADY!! Cons: absolutly ridiculous rates and cash only terms more

Ridiculously overpriced! 2/3/2008

They charge absolutely ridiculous rates for a tow. There are many other tow companies in the Twin Cities that charge less. AVOID Budget Towing at all costs. Pros: Friendly driver Cons: Waited 2+ hours for a tow and they charge ridiculous rates more

Avoid this company: dishonest rates and very rude in my opinion 12/25/2007

This company is to be avoided at all costs. When I called them for towing my car they wanted $100 for the hookup and $10 per a mile!!! The average rate per mile is only $3.50 dollars at the most. Pros: Dishonest rates in my opinion and disrespecful service more

bad tow of st.paul 8/28/2007

he likes to stilling money from people . Pros: nice driver Cons: rude disp .and over priced more

Got Us Out Of A Jam 9/1/2006

My husband and I got our car, boat & trailer stuck on a river ramp that was poorly maintained. We called Budget Towing on a weekend night at 7:30 pm on a holiday weekend. Bill arrived in one hour and was friendly and professional. Our problem was one which required several attempts before finally freeing our vehicles. Bill was skilled enough to know when to stop one attempt before doing any damage to our car and try something else that freed our vehicles without any damage. While the tow was expensive, it was well worth it given no damage was done. I highly recommend Bill with Budget Towing. Pros: Professionalism and Knowledge Cons: Expensive but worth it more
