On April 24/2004 my father sold his junker van to C n R Automotive Repair. $50 was paid for the car, and the vehicle was signed over, license plates removed, and insurance cancled.
C n R company then towed the vehicle away.. and we forgot about it.
Sept 14/2004 a registered letter arrived to my parents, indicating that there was a 74 day storage charge on the vehicle, as well as a $100 charge for the police impounding fee.
It "appears" that the vehicle was left on a road somewhere (possibly stripped) and then eventually towed.
We are very upset at C n R for dumping the vehicle, and as well for Myers towing for waiting 74 days to make attempts to locate the owners. Lastly Myers towing of Windsor stated in their letter that the car would be sold Sept 10/2004 (the letter sat at the post office for about 1 week as my parents were on vacation).
This perplexed me as the charge was staggering, and the notice before sale was VERY VERY short, and the impounding before notification was VERY VERY long.
I suspect we should also put a scam alert in about Myers Towing of Windsor Ontario.
