Repair/Service: Held my truck for ransom money
Hourly Rate: $40
Total Cost: $400
Stay away from Copperfield Collision, back on Jan 5th. 2011 I had a minor accident where my Explorer 2000 slid on a wet road and ended up in a ditch. 5 minutes later a wrecker from Copperfield Collision was getting ready to pull it out of the ditch, as I had no other means of going back to my house I had to ride up with the wrecker driver to my house, a short 10 minute drive. During this time, he convinced me to have my truck taken to his shop: Copperfield Collision where, he said, would be fixed in no time and at a very reasonable price. I accepted. Several days later I called the shop because during all this time they had not called me, and a guy by the name George ask me to go by the shop because in his opinion my truck was a total loss. The same day I went to the shop to find out that although the truck was perfectly drivable, he would not fix it because in his opinion when a car gets wet it is ready for the junk yard. Since I disagreed and I said I was taking my truck somewhere else, he told me "Not before you pay our bill which amounted over $400 dollars" his figures were $150 for the tow (6 miles) $250 for administrative fees (???) and $40 daily for parking. After arguing with him he cut me free for a ransom of $380 or so I felt. 5 days later I picked up my truck from another shop where my total bill was $640 (for repairs that they really performed, not for any fees or parking rights) and ever since I am a happy camper again. STAY AWA FROM THE SHISTERS OF COPPERFIELD COLLISION, is my best advice.
