Avoid Eagle Towing & Recovery due to Dishonesty & Stealing

The public should seriously look to calling someone else to tow your vehicle for any reason instead of calling Eagle Towing & Recovery, as this company has been stealing vehicles and charging fees greater than the maximum fees set by STATE LAW reference towing vehicles without the owner's or operator's consent.

Below is a receipt provided to a vehicle owner who caught one of Eagle's tow truck drivers still on the property and charged them $150, but STATE LAW states an on property drop fee can be no more than a $125, and only if the vehicle is ready to transport down the highway.

This company is so dishonest, they fail to provide the required information on the reciepts that are to be provided to the vehicle owner, such as the tow truck operator's TDLR license number, the name, address, phone number to person who authorized the drop fee or tow fee, the date and time the service was provided.

It’s important to remember,  less than 1% of the tow signs posted are legal signs in Georgetown, Killeen, Round Rock, Leander, Liberty Hill, Taylor, Hutto and the majority of Austin.  98% of the tows from private parking lots are done so in violation of state law that pays the vehicle owner, operator or lien holder $1000 plus three times what you pay to retrieve your vehicle, including the cost of repairs for damaged incurred while in possession of the vehicle storage facility.

There is only one towing company providing a legal tow sign to parking facilities, all the other tow companies think they are above the law by not replacing their illegal signs because the public is ignorant of the laws they must obey.
