Audi got booted...

Audi parked in his parking space. APS(Arizona Parking Solutions) booted his car. A very good read...

EDIT BELOW, NOTHING HAS BEEN DELETED FROM THIS FIRST POST, JUST ADDED BELOW. THIS THREAD HAS TURNED NATIONAL WITH OVER A QUARTER MILLION HITS AND POSTS COMING IN FASTER THEN YOU CAN READ THEM, EDIT BELOW PICTURE.

Here it is from the top:

As I told myself I'd never live in a HOA community here I am. After a year here they forced upon us that we had to pay for parking passes to park outside. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ There's over 700 homes.

Gee, I wounder why they did that?

So you have to display your pass or you get booted, by an outsider company not associated with the HOA, they just won the contract. As the schmucks drive though they look for the obvious outsiders looking to park (visitors) and boot them, and milk the cows. "That will be $140 Sir to remove the boot."

Well, it's just a long day @ work, your mind is busy, you park and don't put your pass on your rear view. They throw 2 boots on you, a large display sticker, phone # and $140 removal fee. I've parked in the same spot for 3 months, always displayed, they know the car, a extensively modified Audi parked in the same spot for 3 months with a displayed pass. It's a no brainier I have a pass.

Gee, I wounder why the pass isn't a permanent sticker?

Now, why wouldn't I always keep the pass hanging from my rearveiw? Being in the top 10 auto theft capitals in the country, I'm not comfortable DISPLAYING where I live when the community is displayed in the largest characters on the pass.

The plastered WARNING sticker on the window mentions you will be penalized to the fullest of law if you remove or damage the boots. So I called the cops.........only one.....but she said I can not damage the the boots, however nothing illegal about removing them.


You know the case, if you don't pay up evenly you'll get towed,so.......

I'm just going to get some f-ing dollies, install them and push the freaking Audi right into the garage you bsaterds. Give them a call to come get their num nut boots..........................and the Audi is undergoing a semi-rebuild....I don't need them off...they won't bother me keeping them on....I don't need to drive it.....a waiting game means nothing.

I own my home, they can not come on the individual property unless I grant permission, and they can not tow it as it'll be in the garage.

Discuss

Currently outside with 2 boots on it, it'll just look like this again with boots on it, same spot. *Edit: Added below picture

*EDIT:
To whom is concerns, this thread, post, blog has started to sweep across the Internet and picked up steam. The issue regards an over zealous private parking company pulling some pretty crazy tactics. Doesn't sound like to much till you get into it. The thread is long, HOWEVER!, I will guarantee this will be the most entertaining, thrilling, suspenseful, cliffhanging story you may ever read! IT IS WORTH SITTING DOWN TO READ FROM BEGINNING TO END! This thread contains a very very many very laughable pictures. This story has now running in now national, on over 30 websites, 6 countries, and over a quarter million views just on this website.

Whether you are for the parking company or myself this is quote:

-The best thing going on the Internet!

-Epic!

-My entire family sat down and took a look, they think that's fantastic!

-PROPS TO YOU!

I will say a VERY VERY THANK YOU FOR ALL THE SUPPORTERS!!!!!!!!!

sig fixed!

Re: Audi got booted...

Interesting... take the suspension apart, take the boots off, reinstall everything. Make yardart out of boots.

Re: Audi got booted...

read about it on autoblog a few days ago, defiantly a good story. i wish there was a clifnotes for it though.


i like the idea of putting the boot on the  parking enforcement vehicle for 'not displaying a permit' when they stop to boot a car. (suckers )





edit: just got done skimming all 61 pages, and unfortunately they locked the thread.

Re: Audi got booted...

This is basically the same tactics my apartment complex uses... we have assigned outside spaces, yet if your pass expires by a day, or it isn't there, they straight out tow you in an instance. It's an outside company that does it, the apartment complex isn't involved at all.
