I have auto towing ins. by Autovantage. My wife's car broke down on the morning of 1 of . nov 2012. She called Autovantage. They told her that due to the storm going through new jersey and new york that they so busy they could not handle it. She told them she was in southern part of the states. they told her to get another tow co. and they would pay it. She called mad dog towing from cleavland al. The tow was $105.00. Autovantage is refusing to pay the tow bill.

to help consumers, patients, employee, tenants, and others resolve disputes without
lawyers or courts, through negotiated online settlement and public disclosure of
wrongdoing or unfair treatment.
A verbal representation that they would pay for the towing is something that they can be held accountable for. Like in the suggestion already made, writing a letter with information about that representation can possibly help to resolve your claim. Make sure to write down specifics, such as what date and time the call occurred, and who your wife spoke to specifically, to help them in reaching a resolution with you.
Do you know the basis of their denial? Is there anything in the contract with them that allows them to deny certain claims for towing? I am guessing that they probably have a list of tow companies that you must use. However, if there is nothing that indicates they shouldn't pay, I would write them a letter and include a copy of the bill (make sure you keep a copy of the letter as well) and ask them to please pay the bill because there is nothing in the contract that allows them to deny the claim. You may want to include the conversation your wife had with a representative verbally promising that the towing bill would be paid if you called another towing company. Good luck with resolving this claim.
Let the PeopleClaim community help resolve your dispute.
PeopleClaim.com is a member-supported online dispute resolution system designed
to settle most common disputes quickly and efficiently—without mediation,
arbitration, or litigation. We provide a secure, confidential negotiation channel
where both sides can review facts, communicate with each other, propose terms, make
counter-offers, and reach resolution. Both parties control their side of the process
and avoid the uncertain outcome and costliness of legal action. PeopleClaim.com
is a facilitating channel: we take neither side in disputes and do not involve ourselves
in any aspect of negotiation between parties. We are supported by member dues and
non-member use fees, rather than sponsorship or advertising.
There are four steps to the PeopleClaim system: 1) Stating your complaint; 2) Making
a claim; 3) Negotiating Terms; 4) Settlement. We help you at every step of the process,
providing smart features that make your case understandable and actionable. A clear
statement of your complaint allows the other party to identify you and your problem,
and respond in an appropriate and timely way. Transforming your complaint into a
claim means establishing terms of settlement that can be acted on by the other party.
We help you organize and present your terms to encourage response and action. PeopleClaim’s
secure online channel lets you and the other party negotiate terms in confidence.
Our automated email system tracks progress, advising both sides of changes in terms,
revised offers, and any other claim-related activity. This helps the negotiation
proceed smoothly with minimum time slippage. Settlement occurs when either side
accepts an offer. Generally speaking, when executed by both sides, the PeopleClaim
online Agreement is considered a legally binding contract.
Remember, we provide a channel and structure but we stay out of your business. The
substance and outcome of your claim is entirely up to you and the other party.
There are many possibilities. We designed PeopleClaim to be affordable enough to
be used for common consumer complaints, but powerful enough to handle larger disputes.
Disagreements with retailers, product defects, and poor service of all kinds are
common claim types. But you could also use PeopleClaim to deal with problems between
individuals, or to register a complaint in a public advocacy cause. The mechanism
of stating a complaint and filing a claim is applicable to a wide variety of situations,
and we expect claimants will be inventive in their use of the system. Naturally,
in complex and large-stakes matters, or where a party is looking to establish legal
precedent, there is no substitute for professional counsel. If you think your problem
may be too big or too difficult to resolve via one-to-one online negotiation, or
have any doubts about PeopleClaim’s applicability, you should ask a lawyer.
