Victor Solomon of Vic's Towing towed my car out of the South High Street parking lot despite me having business in the lot less than half an hour from when he towed it. When I saw him towing my car I flagged him down, and showed him the receipt from where I had done business. He had pulled into a parking spot at the side of the road and I was standing between my car and his tow truck. Believing I had been towed illegally, I told him I was going to call the police and stand in front of my car until they arrived. He seemed to panic as soon as I pulled out my phone - he told me he wouldn't talk further, said I better move, got in his truck, and proceeded to drive away. My car struck me in the back causing great and painful injury while his passenger-side accomplice yelled at me to move because they "didn't have insurance for that." Eventually I was flung to the side and he sped off. I went to the ER after speaking with the police. Because there were no witnesses other than my girlfriend and Victor's accomplice, the police are currently (as of 10/12/2016) declining to prosecute despite the obvious injury on my back. To add insult to injury, I had to pay the man 120 dollars to retrieve my car (and during this second altercation he physically threatened me). He also tried to tell me he was "closed for the day", which is actually illegal - if you are still on duty as a tow truck driver you must return a person's vehicle if they are present. Bear in mind that this 120 dollar fee involved him towing my car about five minutes away.

It is my personal opinion that Victor is a deranged lunatic and maybe even a drug or alcohol addict. I can think of no other reason why he wouldn't wait for the police to arrive and sort out the issue, and instead chose to strike me with my own vehicle as he drove away. If you are considering using Vic's Towing/Vic's Junkyard/Vic's Garage for any service, I urge you to reconsider - this is a very dangerous man and you might be putting your life, not just your money, at risk.

Called to have a car towed from my leased property. Was finally able to get a hold of someone and was told they were just there less then five min before hand and now he was home. and quote just got home and will not go out til tomorrow. They even have a contract with the property owner to do business. If you going to do that then you ought to at least honor it or shi it to another company. NEVER DO BUSINESS WITH THEM if you must use a tow service i would recomend J&J towing. i called them after to see if they could do anything and they were polite about it but unfortunalty unable to help because of the contract with these pricks who call themselves humans. I have never talked to such dumb bum ass hicks in my life. I would strongly recomend not to ever call for them. You will probably get scamed out of money or car looted.

Rude uneducated individual who no one should do business with. Select another company that is literate so that you can have an intelligent discussion about your situation. Would not select this company for anything. Go somewhere else!

After reading the online reviews I was a bit nervous about having my car at Vic's. The first thing he told me on the phone was that he only takes cash, which I had been warned about by the online reviews. However, he proceeded to explain to me why he does that and how after taking peoples checks and having them bounce, and taking peoples cards only to hear that they were cancelled the same day as the charge, I can not blame him. He originally gave me a set price for getting the car out, but after hearing the situation was kind enough to give us a discount. After several minutes of discussion, he also suggested some great investment opportunities (he's something of a wiz with stocks) and was overall very kind, caring, and personable. I personally will prefer to use his company in the future, over some of the other Morgantown towing companies I have had experience with. He is a family man, with compassion, and very friendly. I would recommend him for anyone who may not have a ton of money. He is reasonable and cares. I give him and his company a 10 out of 10.

I was in Morgantown on a business trip when I broke down. Vic was very helpful in helping me locate a garage to fix my vehicle in a timely manner and charged a reasonable fee for the towing. I would recommend Vic??s towing service to my friends.

Vic's towing is a very nefarious business. They overcharge for their services and they are very rude. This business is also very shady because they only accept cash and they will not provide you with a receipt for any of the towing or storage that they do. I do not recommend ever doing business with Vic's towing. I would recommend going with a more reputable towing company.
