wrecker service

Has anyone here had any dealings with Whistler Towing? If not and you have a need for a wrecker service my suggestion would be to avoid this company. They were recently dispatched by my emergency towing company to pick up my motorcycle and instead of being happy for the work they charged me an additional $274 out of pocket to let me put my tiny, pull behind the motorcycle trailer on their trailer with my motorcycle.

It is my opinion that they knew a stranded motorist, after waiting for hours, would pay nearly any amount and they were right. This reminds me of the price gougers who charge $20 for a gallon of gas during a hurricane. Very un-American.

You didn't get a quote what it would cost when you called them to arrange the service?

No, Good Sam's Emergency Assistance called them to arrange the tow. My guess is that Good Sam's called several tow services and danced around the issue enough to let them know they were looking for the best deal they could get AND that the customer, me, had a trailer that wasn't covered - the unsaid understanding being that they could pretty much charge me whatever they wanted.

Just my guess of course
