First of all I would personally like to say that some of the reviews might be missing some details. I know from my own experience that if a title is going to be signed over to Lin-Mar it IS NOT so the company can keep the vehicle. Actually, it is only so they can have the authority to release the vehicle to a junking facility. They do not sell parts of vehicles, the gasoline, etc. When a title is signed over and the "tow fee" is paid, the owner is allowed to remove all items from the vehicle. There are exceptions if a police department has a hold for any reason on the vehicle. Even in that instance, items such as necessary medicine, eye glasses are given to the owner. I am sorry but I feel a few of the reviews listed above are not giving an accurate picture of this company. It is very rare these days to find a reliable, family owned business that stands behind their work. Here is one... trust me.!

All these people must have just been upset about being towed by Lin-Mar Motors. Being in an accident is never a pleasant expereience, but Lin-Mar Motors took care of my situation seemlessly. The tow truck driver was so nice. When we got to the shop, he even helped my get all of my personal belongings out of my car! Once we got there, I was given an estimate and assistance with my insurance claim. I left with one of their rental cars, which I kept until my car was fixed! My car looked like new when I went to pick it up, which was awesome, considering all the damage from the accident! Everyone from Lin-Mar was so polite, and really made a horrible situation..not so bad! : )

Outrageous! We had our car towed because my husband works nights , no one was home and the alarm malfunctioned. The police towed it to Lin-Mar after neighbors complained about the alarm. The car was towed at about 11:30 am and we picked it up around 4 the same day. So naturally this means.....they charged us a TWO DAY "storage fee"! By the way, that came to $90 for the tow PLUS another $100 for "storage!" My husband swore up a blue streak at them

My Lexus GS has been struck twice by trucks-once when I was stopped in traffic and once in a parking lot-- with damage more than minor. Both times I brought it in to Lin-Mar. They do excellent work and the car was finished on time with no hassles.

Pros: Quality work done on time

Cons: None, happy with the service

My daughter was is an accident about 1/2 from Lin Mar. The accident was caused by sliding on ice and hitting a tree. The kids were taken away in ambulances and Lin Mar towing showed up to take the car off the street. I was going to take some of my personal belonging out of the car while waiting for the police to give me paperwork and then I was off to the hospital. Once the police office gave me the accident report, he said to go to the hospital and I could pick up my personal items later. The accident was on a Saturday, on Monday I went to Lin-Mar to pay for the tow bill, which was $195.00 and they wouldn't accept my check. The car was totaled and I asked what I needed to do with the car and they said if I brought the $195.00 and the title to the car. I could release the car and they would keep it. I thought it was a great deal because they would have tires, a new battery and we had just filled the gas tank with gas, and the damage was to the front of the car. On Tuesday, I went to Lin Mar with $195.00 in cash and the title to the car and I asked to get my belongings out of the car and they told me NO. The accident happened with my 16 year old daughter and her girlfriends on a Saturday afternoon and they were coming home from sledding. They had hats, scarfs, boots, shoes, sleds, and my I-Pass and everything else that accumulates in a car after years of owning. They told me if I wanted my personal belongings I would have to give them and additional $575.00 for storage fees and an additional $195.00 to have it towed to a junk yard. They told me when I release the car - it must include all personal items too! Because this accident caused very serious injuries, I don't have this kind of money so I handed over the title and figured for that kind of money I can pay some hospital bills, buy new sleds, scarves, gloves and even an I-Pass. You would think they would have a little compassion - don't let them handing out hot dogs at the Morton Grove parade trick you and make you believe they have a compassionate soul to their business.

my car was stolen and I made a police report (of course) on September 22 and followed up on September 27th. Skokie Police Incident Number 08-30326. After not hearing anything for a few days from police, I decided to call around to see if maybe the perp abandoned it and it was towed. I called Linmar and they were told by police to tow it on 9/28. Police did not call me and linmar did not call me. As I said I called around and found that my car was there. I am the victim, but I will have to pay over 200.00 to get my car back. Geesh. It was like it was all my fault.
I don't have the money today, so now I have to beg or borrow to get my stolen car back. I think this is extremly unfair to anyone-not just me.

After looking into the previous post the indivuduals car was towed in per the police he was not following all of the rules that is why his car was impounded. He was just mad and upset and all he wanted to do was vent. We have been in business since 1958 and we are an honest business, if you have looked at the cost of fuel lately thats why there was a fuel surcharge. Tow trucks cost 80,000 dollars now the days of 50.00 tows have been long gone, you should be mad at yourself and not me. Sorry.

Stay away! They run ridiculous fees and their main focus is ripping off unfortunate customers.
They add hand written fees on the receipt and forces the people to pay. I was just charged $290 for a towing that only held the car for less than 3 hours. They hit me with fuel surcharge, storage fees $50, after hours bs fees $50 (no gate) and a $175 towing for less than a mile.
Also, writes credit card info on all the paperwork (this leave the consumers open for identity or credit card fraud)
Stay away from this business at all cost.
