+1 for kerry! i see him all the time.

yea, its an enclosed van, made just for transporting bikes. he doesnt tow cars or anything, transporting bikes is his specialty. its a pimp setup. alot of our customers use him to bring in disabled bikes. he is an awesome guy, and he takes his work seriously.

Kerry is pretty good. I outsource to him in the Houston area for some of our overflow. I highly recommend him.

As far as the damages to your bike, I think everyone has already addressed the best process. The only thing I would add, if you happen to have some very recent pictures that show the bike without damage it might help. Also, I wouldn't recommend the attorney route, if you could even find one that would work it, the claim is too small for their pockets. The best advice I could give you is to get three appraisals on repair, but only for the areas that you believe were damaged by the towing company. Try to get any witnesses that you can to write statements that back your story, and take it all to small claims court. For the price of filing in small claims, it won't hurt too bad if you lose. But most of the judges will lean towards the consumer side in cases like this. Especially if you can find any past complaints on the towing company for doing the same thing...check the better business bureau. One other thing, when you have all of your evidence, go to the towing company first, for the price of repairs, they may just settle with you rather than take the time to go to court.

Oh and one more thing, please do not use this information against me if one of my towing companies ever does this to your bike! :eh: Just kidding, I work with high quality, "motorcycle-capable" towing companies...Like Kerry's. Give him a call if you ever need a tow, if you want me to pay for it, go to my site before you need services.

In cases like this, neither Kerry nor myself could have helped. Law enforcement jurisdiction overrides towing memberships, and they have to use their approved processes...Good luck with this.
