About a month ago, USAA sent over Jimmie's Towing. The guy said where is it to go, they called me with an estimate. They provided excellent service, fixed my van, and parked it in my driveway. That's cool. I felt the charges were incredibly reasonable. They are young guys, but building a reputation. I haven't had an experience like that for an auto shop in my life.
BEWARE!!!! Trying to commit insurance fraud by charging $950 for 30 mile tow from our hotel to their facility. We got stuck on in flood waters while on vacation and ended up having our vehicle towed to Jimmie's. Had to get our insurance involved because they told us the engine would need to be replaced. We decided to let our insurance tow our vehicle to one of their certified shop so the repairs would be under warranty since we live 900 miles away from Clearwater. We also notice a huge scratch on the drivers side mirror that was not their before the tow. This made them very angry and they became hostile. Before they would release our vehicle they demanded $950 for the 30 mile tow from our hotel. This is crooked and criminal. They are intentionally overcharging the insurance which is fraud and is a felony. I have filed a report with the BBB, the Florida Attorney General, the Pinellas county consumer protection agency and also a dispute with our insurance. This matter is under investigation! Not smart!!! Don't use them. I was told this morning that repairpal will be removing them from their directory.
Over a month ago Jimmie's towed our Mini Cooper to their auto shop. Our mini had a busted radiator hose. It's cost us $400 to replace after the discount. I was extremely happy when I picked up our car however on the way home it started to over heat. My husband called the tow service again and about an hour later Jimmie's came back and towed our car back to Jimmie's. Well they had to clean the head gaskets. The guy at Jimmie's shop said that he drove it to his house and it was running fine. My husband picked it up after work and again it started running hot. AFTER paying Jimmie's around 1,600 dollars for all of the repairs, we are UNABLE to drive our car. It was serviced at Jimmie's the first of Sept 2014 and this is 10/19/2014. They are SHADE TREE MECHANICS and SCAM artists! DO NOT TRUST THESE PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF AND MAKE THE PROBLEM WORSE INSTEAD OF RESOLVING THE ISSUE!
