If this place tows your car, be careful because they will be overcharging you!! I had to pay $138.89 if using cash and $5 more if using credit card. This is illegal for them to charge this much. According to the Ohio Revised code, if

My name is Mark Andrew Hudson. I'm a career criminal who steals cars for these guys. I don't actually work for CAMCAR per say, but don't worry - the cops won't arrest me. If anything they'll probably arrest you for getting your car

After having driven to McDonald's, parked, purchased food, eaten said food, and gone next door, my car had been towed from the McDonald's parking lot not ten minutes later. As a paying customer, I find this appalling. The actual location

So I run outside at 7:04 (towing at Alexandria Colony begins at 7pm) because my room mate says my guest is about to be towed. The vehicle is NOT hooked up to the truck, the guy isn't even out, NOTHING. He demands $48 CASH (says he will

be on the lookout for these guys because they are not just towing at the McDonald's parking lot anymore. They are in cahoots with the city of Columbus's shady self now too. The areas where it says 8-2 on the 2nd Thursday of the month

I completely disagree with most of the reviewers on this site. I parked at McDonald's on High St on OSU campus and walked a few doors down to buy food at a different restaurant. I was only gone for about 5 minutes, but when I came back

At McDonalds at High and 16th. The kid in the green suburban is the lookout. He sits and waits on his lazy butt for a living. I was charged 100 for just dropping the car. Well actually 94, but they dont carry change. Something about that

Drivers for this company wait out of sight behind Sloopy's (now closed, was previously a Huntington branch) at 2619 High for people to park and walk around the corner to the ATM.

Went to Columbus to meet a friend, we met in a parking lot of the Days Inn where I was staying off of 17th. I jumped in her car and we drove away. When we got back about an hour and 1/2 later, my car was gone. I tracked down Camcar and they said they had it. $138 later, they let me have it. The ticket time of tow was 23 minutes after I parked it there. The very rude man in the office not only could care less and was no interested in even talking to me about this problem but wouldnt even offer any information as to anyone else I could talk to. And for the cherry on top--I get in and drive away and the front end is shaking like crazy. When I called to complain, they told me "oh well, what do you want from me?" Needless to say, It cost me $ 138 for the tow, administration fee, tax, credit card fee and then I had to pay for the car to be aligned. Something got to be done to moniter this company.

Pros: Camcar towing campany is ripping people off

I was just at McDonald's on High St on OSU campus. I walk to my friend's apartment to drop something off for no more than thirty seconds and then walked into McDonald's. I come out, and some clown for this joke of a company has my car in the air. He tows me for leaving the lot for 20 seconds. I argue with him and he has a lookout across the parking lot smiling telling his buddy that I left. How sad is it that that is what you do for a living? Rip people off for nothing. What happened to common decency?

On Tues, Dec 22nd at around 10 30 pm I get a knock on my door from a neighbour telling me my car was being towed from my private parking lot in my own apartment complex where I have lived for six months. When I went outside to see what was going on, they were GONE with my car. When I called them to ask why they towed my car, I was told matter-of-factly that I was not parked in a designated parking spot. LIE! When I confronted him about that on the phone and told him I was a tenant of the complex and was legally parked and was calling the police about the matter, he said, eh, well that's $120 come get it. We were also informed from our neighbour that when he couldn't get a good hook on the car he proceeded to DRAG my car a couple hundred feet while the car was in park in order presumably to cover his tracks as when he was confronted by the neighbour he appeared startled and immediately made to get away with the car. How CamCar can tow a legally parked car from a private car park is nothing short of criminal and all of this two days before Christmas.

Pros: NONE

Cons: CamCar is a complete SCAM!!!!

Charged $18 for having my car in their lot for 45 minutes. Last I checked, a day was "24 hours". Charged $125 for towing, $5 for credit card.

Total ripoff. I was out of my car for no more than two hours, parked with awareness and clearance from the owners of the house. My car was towed 15 minutes before I planned to leave and was only in the lot for 45 minutes. When I went to pick it up, the service was rude (but who wouldn't be if their job was that unrewarding and pathetic..), the parking lot was a complete mess (muddy, potholes). The "workers" were unprofessional.

After paying them about $138 profit (assuming that the person that towed my car makes minimum wage and it took 5 dollars of gas to pick my car up, huge overestimate..) I attempt to get in my car which is parked about 6 inches from another car in their lot. I demanded that they move it themselves unless they wanted to pay for damages to the other car if I attempted to open my door.

Scam. Inconvenient. Rude. Pathetic.

If private apartments care that much about their parking lots, they should hire the city to administer tickets so perhaps we get something out of the income as taxpayers than just paying someone for theft.

I was sent a bill for $600 for my totaled car to sit in the lot, and was never told anything about a fine until I got a letter in the mail three weeks later.

Camcar Towing is SCAMING with the Fountain Place apt complex. My truck was parked in the visitor parking lot at Fountain Place apt complex. Camcar Towing comes to this apt complex SEVERAL times a day LOOKING for cars to tow. They had to move a car parked next to me & dented it to get my truck out. I WAS PARKED IN A VISITOR PARKING SPOT.

My buddy lives in Fountain Place complex Col OH 43228 ?? In February his wife parked in her assigned parking spot and Camcar Towing PICKED IT UP AND MOVED IT TO A HANDY CAP SPOT AND TOOK PICTURES OF IT PARKED IN THE HANDYCAPT SPOT AND THEN TOWED IT. After we paid $150.00 and lost a day of work the driver for Camcar tow truck driver admitted he did it.

Last Christmas my buddy??s mother flew in town rented a car and arrived at his house for Christmas, 3 min passed and he asked her where she parked, she went outside to move it and it was gone. Merry Christmas!

They apartment complex has to be in with this company, or why wouldn??t they just tell the tow company they aren??t aloud on the property.

If you pull up Camcar Towing there are 4 non favorable reviews on the internet. Something has to happen this is not fair. You wonder why we have so much valiance in Columbus, when you are done unjust and nothing happens and nothing you can do it makes you VERY mad.

Lets put an end to this SCAM.

I was parked in my own complex in Hilliard and they towed my vehicle within 20 minutes of me parking. A vehicle was parked in my assigned spot so I parked behind it. They stated that I was parked in a fire lane which they say is any vehicle that is not parked in a spot. I asked if they tow vehicles that are is assigned spots where they said no, even though it a Policy in our complex. Called to complain about it and spoke to Debbie. She stated there was nothing she could do. DIane was the supervisor at night and she pretty much said I was Sh*t out of luck.

In second day of january, I parked my car in back parking lot of my friend's apartment where is in neil avenue because i had to visit my friend who lives in this apartment. I helped him just one hour. After coming back, I couldn't see my car.
After looking for a while to around i found a parking label on flour and I called this carzy people who took my car. They chargeed me $100. I couldnt do anything. That was a present of new year for me.

1. what kind of company is that? is that scam? or burgler?
2. If you are a guest, should you pay this money? why there is no any temporary visitor parking?

this afternoon, I parked my car and went to my NEW apartment to pick up my key and parking pass, which were left in the room by the landlord. When I got out after like 5-10 minutes, the towing guy already put my car on his troller !!! and he refused to put my car down until I payed $50... I was astonished, and forgot to call my landlord or police. Bad economy, so mean towing company.

5 tow trucks were hired by Crawford Communities to remove parking passless cars from my brothers apt complex at midnight on a saturday my car was towed from a leagal guest parking spot. the tow truck driver admited that he had made a mistake and informed me i should call the company and they 'should' return it. then the driver phone in to his dispatch and informed them that mine and my brothers cars were parked illigaly. they informed me that if I came across town and picked up my car I would have to pay $120 to get my car back and fill out a complaint. this is a company that is obviously out for a quick buck and should be repremanded for it's poor buisness practices.
