Towing company charges after new owner did not transfer ownership and crashed the car
- Sold a car on Kijij, quick $500 as is sale: gave used vehicle information package, took the plates off and signed over ownership portion - did not take buyer info or create bill of sale, yes my mistake.
- About a month later police show up investigating a crash - apparently guy crashed the car but never had it registered in his name. Explained the whole situation and confirmed the car was not stolen, they said all is good and off they went
- Left on a vacation shortly, after i returned i found $1800 bill from towing company with daily charges piled up
- Called police, they can't do anything. Spoke with MTO, they marked the car as sold but that's all they can do. Called towing company but they want to get paid and because the car was registered in my name i'm the one they are after.
So my options are pay, let the bill go to collections, try to take someone to small court.
Anything else i can do here?
