A few years ago right after I had my first son, I was on my way home from the hospital and my car broke down in the middle of the road. I was still sore from my C-section (my son was still in the hospital) and for convenience sake, had my car towed to Hines Bros. because it was 2 minutes away. They told me the repair would cost $500-$600. I spoke to the usual garage that I use and they said that the price sounded high. I paid an extra $60 to have the car towed from Hines Bros to my garage where my car was repaird for under $300.
