On March 27th, around 8:00 PM, our vehicle, 2012 Chevy 3500 14 feet Box van with a gross weight of 7000 lbs, was stalling near Exit 11 on the NJ Turnpike North. so we pulled into the Thomas Edison Service Area. Eventually, we called a towing company and B&L Towing was the one assigned to us since we were close to their homebase. | Our driver asked for the price but was kept in the dark. They initially showed up with one truck and then said that they needed to bring a bigger truck due to the size of this vehicle. After about an hour later, they brought a bigger truck and started hooking up our vehicle. Even now, they still have yet to give us a price nor did we give them permission to hook it up. | They did it anyways and then once they started to tow it, the driver of the tow truck gave me a number to his dispatcher to call for the price. We get the price of $900 for 30 mile tow. I was befuddled. $900??? We recently had another van towed for $285 for similar miles. This was highway robbery. When asked why it was so high, he said that NJ Turnpike takes a cut of $350. And then their labor and towing is $550 which includes the toll rate from their HQ at exit 12 to exit 11 at 3 axle, exit 11 to exit 16W at 4 axle, and then back exit 16W to exit 12 at 3 axle. | How is NJ Turnpike allowing these deceptive practices still? | I read an article where they were trying to curb these issues and yet it is still happening. | I seriously want to ask NJ Transit if they take a cut of $350 for every tow since that is what was explained to me. | If anyone can give me help, I would greatly appreciate it.
